Eken H9R 4K Action Cmaera Review

Action camera market is booming. More and more people are becoming interested in tiny, customizable and featherweight recording devices that  can fit your pocket and on top of that provide hell of a fun for semi-professionals and complete newbies. There’s another brand which calls Eken H9r, is it a cost-effective action camera?

What’s in the box?

For such an affordable camera, it may surprise you to find out that the H9R comes with plenty of useful accessories in the box. There’s a waterproof case, 2.4G remote controller, Handle bar/ pole mounts,  tripod, USB cable, charger, charging dock, Helmet Mounts, 2 1050mAh batteries and a couple of other mounts.

It is highly unusual for an action camera to come with two batteries, so it is really impressive that Eken has done this at such a low price point. Batteries are usually not expensive to buy separately, but it is a nice touch anyway.

Video Quality

Because the H9R does not support 4K natively, and also because for most of us 4K is overkill, the H9R has been tested in 1080p 60FPS mode. I find that this mode provides the right balance between quality, smoothness and storage space. It works great if you want to shoot faster-paced scenes, like driving at high speed or sports.

Here is the video sample:
