Action cameras are a very trendy thing to own in today’s day and age especially if your profession has something to do with sports, gaming or traveling. A camera is basically owned by everyone but an action camera is a different story altogether and they are as handy as they can get. They can naturally do all the work that a camera is capable of such as capturing images or videos but these pocket-sized gadgets take it a notch further by having extra features such as waterproof technology, multiple mounts and accessories and they can be attached to any object so that you can gain that hands-free experience. Action Camera by Chtreme is one such action camera that has recently made an appearance in the market and has already created a buzz among bloggers and sports enthusiasts because of its smart tech and high efficiency.
- This portable camcorder can record videos in real 1080p HD 30 fps recording and offers 14 megapixels in terms of photo capture thereby ensuring high-quality photos and videos. The camera can also record in 720p 30 fps or VGA (Video graphics array) or WVGA (Wide video graphics array) if need be.
- It has a 2 inch LCD display which is as perfect as the size of an action camera can get. Neither is it too big that it loses its easy portability nor is it too tiny that you can barely playback your own captured video. Its convenient and handy size provides you an easy way to frame and shoot your videos and pictures. Most action cameras provide an wide lens as to make your pictures more lifelike but Chtreme’s camcorder offers 140° ultra-wide angle thereby making it the perfect action camera to tag along on your adventures.

It is the perfect action camera for me and happens to meet all my expectations. The shipping was very fast and the gadget arrived in a secure package. Right from the glance, I fell in love with it because it was just so cute and handy. By the time I tested it, I was convinced that this will be a perfect camera for many adventures to come.
Benefits of the action camera:
- It is the perfect size to carry around while traveling without it being too small to actually be of any help.
- It captures images and videos in perfect clarity that is especially facilitated by its 140° ultra-wide lens. It makes my pictures look surreal.
- Its waterproof case is very durable and can be taken pretty far underwater.
- My favorite feature about it is that you can attach it to almost anything with the accessories that comes with it. You can attach it to your helmets, bikes, cars, surfboards etc. It is perfect for the hands-free experience and provides you with an excellent video of your activity for you to watch later. It is perfect for adventurous activities that I enjoy such as skiing, sky jumping, snowboarding, zip lining, surfing etc.
- Provided with two rechargeable batteries.
- Since it is a recently launched product from a relatively lesser known brand it is obvious to have doubts about it but it comes with 30 days money back guarantee, a 12-year warranty, and professional after-sale service within the first 24 hours of receiving the product.
Drawbacks of the camera:
- Some action cameras can go as far as 50m but this particular one cannot.
- Battery drains quicker than expected.
I am a traveler myself and I love indulging in adventure or extreme sports. I also have a soft spot for water related activities so it only made sense for me to buy myself an action camera to record all my shenanigans and keep them as memories. I have also been wanting to post my videos on YouTube hence I was already on the lookout for an action camera to fit all my needs and surprisingly this latest model from Chtreme had me convinced to give it a try and I am so glad I did.
