The budget action camera space is currently very hotly contested, with older but still incredibly competent tech from GoPro and DJI battling it out for ever-cheaper prices. Akaso has for the past several years been a company that has excelled in providing decent action cameras whilst significantly undercutting the big market players.

However, it is now Akaso’s prior release, the Brave 8, that has been undercut and left it playing catchup on its own USP. Akaso is now back with a brand new model – the Akaso Brave 8 Lite, which might offer enough value to performance to reclaim the budget throne.
