There are people who claim that KAMTRON Action Cam with 4K is the best camera for the lowest price. The values are definitely very good, it has a 170 degree wide angle lens, a 20MP photo sensor and can record 4K video at 3840 x 2160 pixels at 24fps.
It even comes with 2 batteries, so you can shoot videos even longer without charging the camera.

EIS (Electronic Image Stabilizer) is also integrated. The images are no longer completely blurred, but electronically focused. This feature is rare in this price range!

The maximum photo resolution is 20 megapixels, which is pretty damn good performance for a built-in sensor at this price point. The aspect ratio is 5120 x 3840 pixels.
The camera supports micro SD memory cards up to 64GB. We recommend formatting the memory card in advance!
