A 4K action camera for less than £50? Grab this great one-day deal ahead of Amazon Prime Day


Amazon Prime Day is less than a week away, and we expect some great deals on photo kit, but we've already spotted some top deals ahead of the event.

Today, the company has the AKASO EK7000 4K Sport Action Camera down to a ludicrously low £47.59 in the UK (and $66.79 in the US). We can’t all justify splashing out on a brand new GoPro HERO 6 for the occasional adventure, but if you’re after an action camera and you’re on a particularly tight budget, you’re in luck.

For your money, you get a 4K-capable camera that’s furnished with a 170° wide-angle lens and 2in LCD screen, and it even comes with a separate wrist-strap remote. You can take the camera 30m underwater with the included case and even stream what it’s capturing to your smartphone with the iSmart DV app.

You can record 4K UHD footage at 25fps, but if you don’t need this kind of resolution – or your memory card can’t keep up with it – you can switch to 1080p video at 60fps instead. Need to shoot stills? You can capture 2MP stills at up to 30fps too.

True, Akaso may not have the prestige of GoPro, but the vast majority of reviewers have awarded the product with a glowing praise and five stars, citing its great value for money next to more mainstream rivals in particular.

Think you need to invest in a heap of accessories to get using it? Well, in addition to its waterproof casing, it actually comes with a bike stand, helmet mount, a couple of clips and seven other mounts. For this kind of money, you really can’t really argue with that.

This is a day-only deal so you have to be quick!
