    The media could not be loaded.

     The camera came with firmware 12062018_V6.

    Pros:
    + Shopping experience is damn great for those who don’t live in the US.
    + Packaging. It’s nice puzzle to open the box. Open the box from the bottom! Then extract black box.
    + Rich accessories set. Holistic approach
    + Camera body have sleek silky feel.
    + Image quality of video and still recording is exactly as in numerous samples in YouTube.
    + Touch screen is a nice feature. Of course, it’s useless when camera is in the waterproof case. However, 2 buttons are enough comfy and intuitive.
    + Distortion correction is pretty decent – see in the video.
    + Video of 4K@30FPS and 20MP pictures are quite hot features, making the device hot too. Frankly, 4K video is not practical for my needs: it eats too much memory and power from battery, and makes all the video processing hard. So I use lower video capturing and enjoy for longer recording time. I got feeling that 20MP stills are extrapolated from 14MP: the pictures of 20MP have strange color smudge while 14MP pictures almost don’t. However, that’s just feeling, hard to prove. See the difference of 100% crops.
    + 2 batteries give you about 3 hours of recording.
    + I found very handy the wrist mount straps included in the box. Slight down of the feature is: the edge of the strap isn’t fixed so fabric may loose. I used low-heated soldering iron to sort this out.
    + USB file transfer works just smooth.
    + Codec! Most competitors rely on H.264 codec. The H.265 in V50 Pro makes about half size of video files. That’s good for 2 reasons: (a) you can same more video on the SD card, (b) the video you recorded can be transferred by half time.

    On the barrier:
    = Variety of scene-specific features: very long exposures up to 60 seconds and night shot scene are exclusive.
    = Getting started guide is mostly useless (that’s cons). And it clearly recommends to charge both batteries before use – great technical advice (that’s pros).
    = Micro-HDMI output is good feature. However, it isn’t accompanied with an appropriate cable.

    Cons and Solutions:
    – Image stabilization almost doesn’t work… phenomenon called “jello shot”. See the video.
    Workaround: use offline stabilization in video-editing software.

    – The camera does not remember settings of Distortion calibration, Image Stabilization, and RF remote control. It does remember most of other settings like resolution of capturing, filters, angle of view, and codec.
    Workaround: pretty stupid. Just enable Distortion calibration, Image Stabilization, and RF remote control every time you need them. Or forget about them.

    – The remote control. Yes, that’s disappointing. Good it’s wrist mounted. Bad as following:
    1. The buttons are hard to press, so it’s hard to feel if you pressed it or not by the end.
    2. The camera does not remember RF control setting, so you’re forced to perform “connection dance” every time you turn the camera on. And when camera goes off by timeout you must start again. I though the Power button on the remote control should power the camera on, however, it power the RC on.
    Workaround: None. Very pity. Abandoned the RC.

    – The video file extension. Despite codec is brilliant, the recorded format is .MOV. Why? 🙁 It’s played OK by any player, but not editable on smartphone.
    Workaround: Brute-force approach leads to video format converters, which means more junk apps on your smartphone, more processing time, more phone battery drain, more pain.
    Out-of-the-box-thinking approach leads to rename video file extension in smartphone from .MOV to .MP4. This can be done in any file manager (I use Total commander) and takes just seconds. Then you can edit your video in your favorite app directly on the smartphone (I use VideoShow and Quik).

    – The app. Many people complain on Google Play that iSmart pro+ app is crashing and doesn’t work, rated 2.0 of 5. Or even if it works, it’s dead slowly. So I decided do not pollute my smartphone with another junk app. The main purpose of the app is video streaming and file transfer.
    Workaround: Beside trivial file transfer via USB or via SD card reader, I wanted to enjoy the WiFi transfer. I invested some extra money to buy a camera with WiFi, so it would be pity do not use it by the end. I found that the WiFi file transfer uses FTP. Both smartphones and computers have FTP clients. I use Total Commander file manager on both, so it’s similar procedure to configure the connection.
    Step 1. In your favorite FTP client create new connection, call it Akaso, use following parameters:
    – IP/host: 192.168.1.1:21
    – User: anonymous
    – Password: trah@tibi.doh (actually, anything here 🙂
    – Check box “Passive file transfer”.
    Step 2. Turn on the WiFi in the action camera.
    Step 3. Connect to AKASO access point from your device (computer or smartphone). Password: 1234567890
    Step 4. Connect FTP client with Akaso connection you’ve created in step 1.
    Step 5. Choose files in folders VIDEO or JPG for transfer and have fun with editing 🙂
    Notice: The Akaso V50 pro shuts down by the timeout in settings. That’s aggressive power saving policy. They don’t check if a client connected to WiFi, so your file transfer might abrupt. To avoid this:
    – Make sure you transfer all you need in less time than you defined to self power off in the camera.
    or
    – Increase Self power off timeout before the WiFi file transfer. Don’t forget return your initial setting then.
    For video streaming it uses RTSP to whom it may concern.

    Image quality is not bad. Video quality is good but slow motion video only possible at 720p and it’s quality is below par. Battery capacity is nice and extra battery is gem. Too many accessories.

  3. Golaka C Nath

    The product was delivered on time. It is an excellent product though I am writing this review after receiving the product only on 21st Oct 2018. The video quality is very good. We have not tried it under water. Works very well under low light. The product is simply great compared to the price you pay. The many accessories that came with the product include a water resistant case and two batteries. Hence you will not run out of power in remote locations. Works very well with a sandisk 32gb card though tge support document says it supports 64gb. Overall an excellent product. The service is also very prompt. Since we had some issues in getting sound we just sent them a mail seeking support. The answer came promptly with solution and it worked in a jiffy. It works excellent with iSmart Pro+ to be downloaded from play store. It is definitely better than most costly iriduct available in Indian market which cones without any accessories or second battery.

    Life is very unpredictable and we do not know what is going to happen next. Some moments we enjoy and some moments we regret but whatever moment come in our life we want to capture it so whenever we want to relive the moment we can.

    Action camera is one of the equipment which can fascinate someone to rejoice the every small detail of life. Action cameras are the gadget which can perform high-end Video shoots without carrying any bulky camcorders as well as it also work underwater as well (Depends upon product to product).

    This Akaso V50 Pro is something which anyone can admire due to its looks and specially its performance for which it has been meant.

    What Purpose it can suffice:
    ——————————–

    This camera can be used for various things like adventure sports, low lighting recording, underwater recording or Travel shoots. After this I don’t think so you will be required any imaging device for your daily life shoots and once you will fall in love with this product you are not going to spend on any of the available devices.

    Final Verdict: Just go with it without any doubts as it is coming at an affordable price in 4K Action camera segment and give all the outcome of any high end Video camera as well as too tiny so that you can carry in your pocket. So, no confusion just take the decision.

    It’s not worth, It hangs and don’t respond to any buttons, not even to Power button, a blue light reflect on the side of touch screen
    I removed the battery, replaced it and restarded the device, repeated this thrice after it got hang, That’s why returned the profuct

    This is a update. I wrote my review just a day or so but rereading it I found too many spelling and grammar mistakes.

    This is going to be a pretty long review. Those who follow me know I have a tendency to write a bit too much and I agree. Here’s why. The majority of reviews written here are one, two or three lines. I don’t think three lines is enough especially if the rating is four or five stars. I want to know why the review received the stars and “it’s a nice product” isn’t go to convince me. I try to give the pros and cons of a review. I try to give enough information to give the buyer enough knowledge in order to find if the item is what the want or need. I write reviews so others will know if the product is of high quality. I try to find alternate solutions. I want my review to include my experience with the product. I’ll never write a review on an item I never used whether purchased her or some other seller. I will never ever give a positive review if the product doesn’t deserve it. I will never pull my punches and I’ll never write a review if the item is offered free or with a deep discount unless it’s offered through the Amazon Vine program. So there it is, why my reviews are sometimes long.

    I’m not new to photography. You could say I know a lot about photography as I hold a MFA in Photography from a very prestigious college and spent thirty two years working for the biggest news agencies. The medium at the time was film and digital at that time was still floating around in Steve Sasson’s head. He developed digital photography for Eastman Kodak and actually made the first digital camera in 1973. In 2012 Eastman Kodak, deciding that digital wasn’t going to be profitable enough for them. They decided to sell their digital business for $525 million to a consortium. The consortium included some big name like Adobe, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft and Samsung. A private accounting firm estimated the true value of the 1,100 Imaging and processing patents portfolio to be worth $2.5 billion. And now you know why the majority of Eastman Kodak closed. So video was going to be a new challenge and I was looking forward to it. My first action camera was a cheapy and the learning curve though not terribly hard, was a bit confusing. I knew I could use some help. Help came at first from the son of a life long friend. He holds a degree in videography so I was sure I would be shooting video very quickly. Turns out he had a lot of knowledge but his teaching skills were not so good and he lost patience with me. I just didn’t understand all the terminology and the speed he expected me to have. You see, I have a problem with learning without repetitive teaching. About 12 years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. For the next two years it progressed and I was forced out of the active photography. I taught a year but it wasn’t rewarding enough. I joined a Real Estate firm and within three years I became a partner of the firm. I was active in the actual sales and listing part of the business, but again the Parkinson’s interfered enough to keep me away from the active sales and listings. For the next three years I did the behind the scenes of real estate until again the Parkinson’s interfered. The other partners bought me out and I retired. At first I watched a lot of TV and messed around on the computer and became fat and depressed. With the great help from a great lady, my wife, and a very good psychiatrist I snapped out of the depression and began working with other Parkinson patients and ended up working for an advocacy group that catered to Parkinson’s and Parkinsonian inflicted individuals. My Parkinson’s progressed and I became very unsteady on my feet. A serious fall put me in the hospital for surgical repairs and a rehabilitation hospital where I was evaluated for a wheelchair. I ended up in a wheelchair but not just any chair. I purchased a motor wheelchair with so many bells and whistles including a USB3 port which quickly became four with the addition of a hub. I purchased one of those real high tech chairs with all the bells and whistles. It even has a USB3 port which I expanded to 4 with hub. I wasn’t looking forward to learning this all on my own and thankfully I didn’t have to. My apartment Manager of the complex I live in makes regular welfare checks to make sure the tenants are safe. The last visit she made found me sorting all the camera thing I purchased. She said her son was really into video taping and all he wanted for the Last Christmas was cameras and acessories. He had them mounted on his skateboard, his bike and even his back pack he took to school. A light bulb went off in my head and I asked if her son would be interested in making some money teaching me. She said she would ask and sure enough he was happy to help.

    He showed up the first Saturday empty handed except for his skateboard. Sure enough there was a camera attached. He was a Junior in high school and he said the majority of his friends were into filming. Their hopes were getting something on YouTube. So he says ” what do you want to do”. My plans were to attach a camera or two to my wheelchair so I could record my daily activities. He looked at me like I had lost my mind. Why he asked. I told him that ever since my last fall and the confinement to the chair the majority of my friends were staying away. He got that right away. He said ” so you want them to see there’s no reason to stay away by recording all the things you can still do”? he hit the nail on the head. First thing was to look at the chair to see what acessories I would need. I showed him the large case full of adaptors, a chest harness, a head harness and so much more. Well he said, you have that taken care of. What camera you going to order he wanted to know. I showed him this AKASO V50 Pro. He had heard of the make but had no experience with it. So we got down to work and he was genuinely excited. I said you really get into this stuff and he shook his head yes. What he said next was one of the nicest things I ever heard. He said it’s difficult to find an adult that shares his and his friends idea of fun.

    We first opened the accessory kit I purchased and began taking each item out of the plastic bags. Each one we opened he explained what it was and what it was designed to do. We then started mapping out my wheelchair and figuring the best place to record. He said it’s too bad I didn’t have two cameras. I reached down into a drawer next to me and brought out the cheapy cam and handed it to him. Why do you call this a cheapy cam he asked. I told him how much I paid for it. He said it wasn’t the newest or greatest camera but just a year or two the camera was the top of the line. Compared to your new camera, yeah it lacks features but is definitely usable. We read the new AKASO features and we did a quick comparison. Right away he pointed out the resolution difference. The top resolution on the cheapy was 1080 where the AKASO is 4K. The cheapy cam wasn’t touch screen where the AKASO is. The AKASO has Gyro stabilization the cheapy no. He laughed and agreed the cheapy was cheap but could still be used. In fact the camera was charged and the memory card formatted. We put it on a small tripod and recorded what we were doing. We then began going over the features of the AKASO V50 Pro which are many. Now I could list each feature but then I would be repeating the Amazon product description page. I will however list what my new friend considers the better and best features. First the basic: F2.8 aperture, Field of View 170 degrees, Image format JPEG, 2 inch touch screen, Sensor resolution 14.24 video resolutions of 4K:3840 X 2160 30 frames per second, 2.7K: 2704X1524 30 frames per second, 1080X1920 60 frames per second and 720X1280 120 frames per second. These numbers are important I am told but he added more than likely I’ll being one resolution for the majority of time. Photo resolution 16MP, Time lapse photo intervals 20MP. A very important feature Stabilization. Parkinson’s tremors makes it difficult for me to hold the camera steady. WIFI 2.4G, Battery is 1100mAH, This particular camera came with two. Settings you can set are numerous. The FOV, GRYO, Time stamp, White balance, ISO control, EV metering, Self timer Auto Power off and quite a few more. It can auto upload to cloud, Wi-Fi for offload to phone, can connect to GoPro App iSmart Pro+, remote control and 30 meters or about 90 foot with the case.

    After looking at all the features on paper and having the majority of them explained to me, we actually started using it. Right up front. The camera is shipped with the camera in the water proof case. Be prepared to have a difficult time getting the camera out. Don’t loose you patience and grab a butter knife like I did. If I hadn’t had my new friend around to stop me the camera would have been seriously scratched or worse. Once the camera was free, of course we began by charging the battery. There are two with the camera but I purchased another two with charger. The battery charged quickly but we think it may of had a factory charge as we turned the camera on and it lit up. While the batteries charged he went over the memory card and adaptor. This may be a problem. Due to the tremors I have holding something that small could be tricky. The battery now charged we inserted into the camera. Please note: the battery can only go in one way. If it looks like it’s stuck DO NOT FORCE the battery in or you’ll cause damage to the battery compartment. Here’s another thing you need to know. The memory cards must be formatted. DON’T USE YOUR COMPUTER to format the card. It has to be formatted in the camera. After about three quarters of an hour I had learned the features of the camera and got it up and running. For the price this camera sure offers a lot of features. I have compared the AKASO to a few other similar cameras higher priced and it holds its own. It definitely will not compete with the GoPros, the Garmin’s nor the Nikons but neither does it cost three times as much. The AKASO will fit my needs very nicely as the wheelchair won’t be diving anytime or driving through the desert or even be out in the rain, if I can help it. I’m really looking to get this and the cheapy camera hooked up and get out in the world. My new young friend has mentioned me to his friends and they have shown an interest in helping me

    I hope this review helped. If you think it did please check the little box in the review. I would like to invite you to subscribe. If you have any suggestions how I can approve any of my reviews please contact me here through Amazon. I’m sorry I am not able to add photos or videos. Because the Parkinson’s has affected my hands and arms, I am unable to hold nor control a camera.

    Thanks for reading.

    We bought this camera and then used it after a couple of weeks on our trip..and as soon as we took it underwater..it started behaving funny..the screen kept hanging..and the buttons were getting pressed on their own..yet the worst was to come..we had also clicked almost all the pictures(not underwater) with this camera..not on the 3rd day of use..this camera decides to have a software issue..due to which it formats the SD card on its..all our pictures were lost..we had bought this on a 13500 price specially for this trip..
    1. The camera didn’t work properly underwater..kept on asking for WiFi even when it’s WiFi was switched off..then it hung
    2. It erased all our pictures on its own and also clicked 3 random pictures when lying on the table.
    3. Total waste of money and I wouldn’t suggest anyone to buy this camera.
    4. Better spend a little bit more and go for GoPro..
