this is the akka sylvie 50 acts action
camera shoots 4k 30 frames per second
and it is the first sub $100 100 pound
action camera that’s actually really
impressed me and I am giving it away I’m
gonna be giving it away on my Instagram
which is at Steven J reader but for now
I’m gonna do a quick review of this
camera I’m gonna run through his various
features I’m going to show you sample
footage I’m gonna show you it being used
in a real-life situation to stitch
together I know how it looks all
stitched together to make a little story
to make a running video like what I
normally make but yeah I have been very
impressed with this camera so let’s get
into the review
this is the akka sylvie 50x
action camera there it is it’s actually
quite small smaller than the GoPro but
this thing shoots 4k up to 30 frames per
second it shoots slo-mo up to 120 frames
per second at 720p oh it has a little
tripod mount on the bottom
GoPros don’t even have that ice core
stabilization built-in it shoots put it
graphs with manual controls as
time-lapse built into it it has an app
that you can Wi-Fi control it with it’s
got actually a really easy to use a
touchscreen unlike some cheaper cameras
that I’ve reviewed the touch screen is
actually responsive which is great for a
change when it comes with a waterproof
kiss 3 what else is in the box here this
is the box one of the big advantages
with non GoPro action cameras is that
they actually come with accessories
instead of charging you you know several
thousand pounds for a battery a GoPro
actually charges several thousand plans
for a battery but it’s excessively
expensive I think and we’ve got – we’ve
got straps there is our little remote
control so if you don’t wanna use the
app you can use this it’s like infrared
you can take photographs of your video
with that more mine lands wipes sticky
pads more lines more lines for bicycles
charging cable and a different different
door for the waterproof cover this one
will just lets in audio so that will
just act as a protector straps more
mites and it comes with two batteries
there’s one battery in and you get a
spare with GoPro they charge you an
extra like 15 20 quid for a spare
battery so that’s good and this is also
very useful it comes with a separate
charger so you’re not charged charge two
batteries at once in the camera or GoPro
spending what is it what a GoPro charge
it’s like I think it’s like 40 quid for
their their charger to charge two
batteries at the same time come on
it is nice to see GoPro finally again a
bit of competition from these cheaper
brands though because it means they’re
gonna have to up their game in with
regards to what accessories they offer
pop this isn’t about GoPro is about this
little camera so
what I want to do is I’m going to run
through a series of tests that I’ve made
and then I’ll tell you I think and then
at the very end it’s gonna be this short
real-life usage video of a running video
just showing the camera in action so
let’s get into the tests all right okay
the very first test is what I call the
I’ve got the video on my phone here the
test is what I would call the ideal
situation for an action camera we’ve got
sort of sunset light in the evening and
and there’s not too much winds you’ll
get to hear what the sound is like as
well as seeing what it looks like sort
of under optimal conditions here’s the
shot and here is a good weather test if
it’s so little chances to get with this
camera when it’s actually sunny and
action cameras really don’t look their
best unless you’ve got good sunlight so
up here looking at the sunset just
thought I’d get the camera let you see
if that look like okay so the next test
is the stabilisation test because GoPro
have pretty much paved the way for
really well stabilized camera so I’m
gonna show you a shooting 4k 30 with
stabilisation amplified stabilisation
pointing it forward I’m pointing it back
this is 4k 30 and just walking forward
stabilization is off so pairs of to how
they smooth I don’t know I’ll check this
is 4k 30 and stabilization is armed just
walk it forward not really making any
effort to dump in my footsteps
just walking along stabilized action is
on as you can see how that looks
[Music]
I was pretty impressed with that I
actually think the stabilization on this
camera bear in mind costs 200 pounds
less and enterprise is very similar to
what the stabilization was like on the
GoPro Hero 6 our GoPro it really just
been starting to get into that digital
stabilization so I was impressed while
walking stabilization worked worked
pretty well just slow motion so of
course I’m going to go for the slowest
of the slow motions which is the seventh
went they add 120 frames per second so
this is what you can do with that
I mean that is not bad you can see the
drop in quality there but still that is
totally usable slimmer okay
next test is a time lapse test action
cameras are brilliant for time lapse you
just set them out push the button off it
goes I had this camera on a shirt we’re
up near sunset a lot of clouds can
overhead so I set up a camera there on
time lapse and here the results I got
like again that is pretty good right
photographs know what it’s like we’re
still photographs now it doesn’t
and RAW images use JPEGs but there are
some manual controls in here so I just
want to show you before a couple of
before and afters so the before is the
shot directly at the camera and then
after that’s after I processed it with
Lightroom again that’s not half bad
and here’s the second one it’s more like
like right of the camera and then after
let’s just use I don’t we light room on
my phone you can use other apps but just
to show you what you can do with the
photographs out of this and next test
down is just to show you they have a
little zoom feature where you can change
the the focal lengths and just demoing
how that works it works you know it kind
of works ok yes you do lose quality as
you swim in of course you do but you
know if you really needed to zoom in
yeah it kind of does the job right now
my last test before I move on to the
actual real life test is what I call the
vlog test as this setup what does this
look like through that camera so here it
is letting you hear the audio and let
you hear the audio and see what the
image quality is like indoors in not the
world’s brightest lighting the camera is
sitting on a tripod still eyes ashes off
so you getting a slightly wider view but
really this is to let you know all right
let you see what it sounds like see what
it sounds like hear what it sounds like
in a more controlled environment you yet
the audio is not coming me isn’t in here
that eques room and let you see what it
looks like with all of the light up
before we go on to the real life test
I’ll just tell you my thoughts so far
here’s the good buy this camera it’s got
decent video quality in fact in some
situations I would say it’s good
possibly
borderline great dependent on your
expectations video quality certainly
it’s got some of the best video quality
at that price range
I find anyway and stabilization is not
half bad it’s actually better than the
stabilization on an on a another action
camera I got sent the cost twice as much
not gonna tell you who you submit
because they might be better no I the
audio is actually
okay it’s quite decent you can hear what
I’m saying and that’s an important thing
time lapse works brilliantly there was a
really good definition in color and that
I’ve really impressed with the time
lapse you’ve got those massive range of
accessories you’ve got the – berries it
comes with a dive kiss you’ve got
they’re easy to use touchscreen the
tripod mine is built-in which is very
nice and that really cheaper prices bear
that in mind before it comes to the
negative things that this is a sub 100
point action camera it’s not a 400 350
prime GoPro it’s three times cheaper
than I GoPro so here that what I saw is
the bad try to judge it in its in its
own place so stabilisation is a bit
jerky when you’re running or if you make
sudden movements and again it he’s
probably comparative to the GoPro Hero 5
& 6 when GoPro just started to figure
out how to do that electronic image
stabilization and it’s not what a proof
without a kiss it did make me slightly
more cautious when I was running with it
because I was just conscious if it rains
this will die and if you put it inside
the kiyose yes you can put the back for
the the yes you can put this door on the
back which will let in audio but it’s
not going to sound as good as the camera
with otakus can’t plug in an external
mic at least I’m pretty sure you can’t
there’s no input anyway and then the
video quality it’s probably you know
lower in low light than a GoPro but
again that’s not this design for its
design for being used outdoors I mean
these are all nitpicks considering price
so now I’m going to show you a
real-world test this is just a short
two-minute running video these are
similar to what I make all the time on
this channel just to show you it being
used I’ll show you how you can use it to
tell a story and then that’ll be me
development at 4k 30 frames a second
with the stabilization on a little bit
of wind so you’ll get the you get to see
what the audio is like a win
stabilisation off I start shipping I
should be very shaken up
okay I’m gonna speed this footage up
suit looks like
and it’s smaller than the GoPro the
question is can I hold this with my life
let’s try it while running down some
stamps right
oh it’s got teeth marks on it so yeah
this is totally usable to make some kind
of story to make a vlog it really does
work yes the image quality yes and
stabilization is not as good as GoPro
but a is good enough and that’s what
matters if you’re starting off or that
you’re not really really serious into it
or you just want to get like a crash cam
that you can have handy so yeah I can so
V 50x
I’m impressed I would recommend this if
you want the first action camera and
don’t want it buy a GoPro and and don’t
forget this is being given away on my
Instagram it’s Steve and Jerry so you
can check might even get it for free but
that is it for me for not the next video
coming out on this channel is so there
gonna be a test of the Maverick mini
trying to fly in high winds which
doesn’t work or it’s going to be a
adventure video where I encountered the
first snow of the year and get attacked
by a very fluffy dog I attacked him in
Seraph licked to death
