The latest actions sports camera ODRVM 4k talks. We took it out to compare with the Git2 camera. Here are some sampling of footages filmed at Disney. These ultra vivid cameras are becoming very affordable these days. ■ by dronemission.com
Camera Enthusiast, Budget $69 (May 2017 source: Amazon)
The ODRVM comes with in a very nice case with accessories, a user guide in 4 languages. It comes with a remote controller, a great way to start/stop a recording from the distance or when the camera is placed in a location not easily reachable.
Lets take a look at the camera. On the front we have the power and mode button. The shutter/recording button is on the top with a LED indicator. By placing the LED indicator on the top, helps to prevent a blinking reflection while filming closeups and through a window. The back contains the 2″ LCD screen for framing shots. Battery compartment is at the bottom. Right side has the button that allows you to scroll up and down button, a speaker and the WiFi on and off button. On the left side has a micro USB, micro HDMI output, microphone, and a micro SD slot.
It is slightly bigger than a GoPro 3, but is actually lighter, weighing just 63 grams.
The details are sharp, colors are vibrant. The ODVRM has an excellent wide dynamic range, even when a subject is backlit by the sun, you can usually see their face. The saturation is good without looking over-done.
The white balance on the camera adds colors to balance the light source, for example on a overcast day, the image can look bluish if left unadjusted. This auto white balance control in your camera sees the cool color temperature and adds some red to warm the colors, as a result you may see a tint of red.
The menu system is straight forward, simple to use and intuitive. The settings selected are displayed on the screen which is absolutely useful to view before you begin filming.
Voice prompt can be useful in some situations, it prompts you when your battery is low and each time you start and stop recording. You may find yourself turning it off after a while, unless you plan to edit out every voice prompt on the recorded videos.
The field of view options are 170, 140, 110 and 70. Anti-shaking and gyroscope is available as a option.
A feature we like is the auto time-lapse, a mood feature to capture moments in time.
The maximum photo size is 20m and UHD 4K video at 24 fps or more popular at 1080p 60 fps or 720p at 120 fps.
Filming at 4k is sharp, but not as smooth, and that seem to the same problem with the Git2.
