In our Akaso Brave 4 Pro review, we’re putting a popular budget action camera through its paces. With a dual-screen design that recalls the DJI Osmo Action and recent GoPro models like the Hero 10 Black, and an impressive spec that includes the ability to shoot 4K video at 30p and Full HD at up to 120p, the Akaso Brave 4 Pro packs in a lot of tech for a camera that costs around $110 / £90.

Of course, one has to tread carefully in the world of budget cameras. Sometimes, promises of big functionality and little price tags are quite simply too good to be true. When we’re putting together lists like our guide to the best budget action cameras we have to be extra careful that everything we’re recommending is worth the price tag, no matter how slim that price tag is.
