The test

The package is well protected, the camera comes in a box cardboard that contains two parts, one for the camera and one for accessories. The camera is mounted directly in its sealed box. In the second box, several small accessories attachment. It is a tripod adapter, a fixation for bike, fixating belt, velcro strips, a USB-microUSB cable that allows reloading. The manual is in French only. eyes-go-1-01 The camera is very compact, about the size of a GoPro for a more lightweight than a GoPro however. The camera is easy to use, it has 4 buttons, a button on the front on the what it takes hold to turn it on or turn it off. A quick press this button when the camera is turned on allows the transition between modes (Video, photo, reading). Meanwhile top button to trigger the shooting. By holding on, it allows to enter the menus to set the machine. There are two buttons on the right side, they serve navigation in the menus (top and bottom) as well as digital zoom. At the back, found a screen which is convenient for the parameters and the framing of the pictures/videos. On the side left is making microUSB for charging the battery, the slot for the MicroSD card (note that there is no door, so in absence of the hull the camera is very vulnerable at this level, even to a simple splash! It is also on this side that it find the microphone. On the front of the bottom there is the door that allows access to the battery and to change it if you ordered additional. Now for the practical part. This camera has the features and essential settings, but you will not find settings advanced as can be seen on high-end cameras. Is quite normal and making it easy to use because the menus are not very long, it is an advantage for all people not wanting to spend hours to resolve. However, advanced users who are looking for the possible more manual camera, to turn to a model more high-end. This camera is ideal to make a simple use to start with cameras sports, for children, or even for most people who do not want to have your hands on everything. When changing environment quickly, for example a passage in full sun in a very dark area, it can happen that the white balance has a small error of 1 second to the level of automation, but nothing nasty or binding. Like changing the exhibition can take 1 to 2 seconds, but it's not noticeable when moving quickly (more than 100 Km/h and to change radically, as for example the output of a motorway tunnel). Photo quality and video is correct given the price, this little camera is not intended as a high end camera and defends rather well for the entry level. The housing is waterproof up to 30metre depth and protects the camera of small bumps. I have not tried big falls, but a fall of 2metre on Lawn break no problem for example. eyes-go-1-04 You can see at the end of the video below (which begins with the listing of the contained of the box) examples of videos shot with this camera. We see that it is not a high end camera but this is correct for the price, there is the presence of a little digital noise, frequency of images as she adapts to brightness, so even if the theoretical value is 30 seconds frames, in grey area the camera come down up to 15 images seconds to keep the most possible correct brightness of the image.

A more sensitive sensor and therefore more expensive can solve this phenomenon and so for use in low light I would recommend a model a little more upscale. Small bonus, and this is the first time I see it, we can change the colour of the front shell, we have here a choice of 7 colors! Black (installed by default!), grey metallic, yellow, pink, blue, white and gold.  

Conclusion

This entry level camera allows to start with actions for cheap cameras if there is need of a professional quality, otherwise it will turn to a version more high-end brand for example. For the price, the image is correct, it allows flexible use as any other camera say "waterproof" (GoPro, etc…). And for the price, it already has an interesting accessories Park.   Link: https://www.amazon.fr/dp/B01LH92E9C/ test-Avis-appreciation-critique-review-2
