MECAM X REVIEW


Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations & Product Reviews.

About a year ago I did a YouTube Review on the GoPro Black vs the GoPro Silver. The response to the video was amazing, however I received many comments in reference to the price of the GoPro cameras. Since this video the market has been flooded with many different options of Wifi Action Cameras. Today we will take a look at a company that started off as a "wearable" camera company, but recently introduced their own action sports camera. Say hello to the MeCam X!





Now MeCam currently offers three different models of cameras on their site:


For this YouTube product review I will be going over the feature, benefits and my final thoughts on the MeCamX. Below the video I will also go into further detail over all three models with a more in depth look at the MeCamX.




The MeCam X is our most rugged and feature loaded camera. Our version of the action sports camera, the MeCam X has a 2 inch color LCD screen and a 30M rated waterproof case. Shooting in full 1080p HD it has WiFi that connects to an app on your smartphone and a remote control watch giving you ultimate flexibility in capturing your life!

The MeCamX is an amazing deal at a retail value of just $149.99 and comes with the following in the box:

Most action cams on the market will require additional purchases for many items that the MeCamX  already include in the box. (Waterproof Case, Helmet Strap, Helmet Mount, Wrist Remote)

The MeCamX for the price point was a pleasant surprise. The quality of photographs and video were what would be expected of any action camera on the market. The indoor quality is okay, where as the outdoor quality shine. I did make note that when recording inside, well lite areas performed way higher than those areas not overly compensated with light. The quality outdoors in direct daylight was very impressive and equivalent to the quality of the GoPro Session. For me the big winner was the wrist remote. This feature eliminate the frustrating mobile application that the MeCamX currently has in place. And while it looks clunky, the remote is easy to use and connect. 

For me the negative points of the camera were Mobile App, Microphone and Touchscreen. The Mobile Application is a third party application that is used by many action cameras. Due to this I had numerous connectivity issues and the process became very frustrating. So frustrating that I went straight to using the wrist remote to capture the "shots on the go". The camera does have a built in microphone, however, the quality is very weak, low and "tinny" sounding. This is not uncommon for many action cams on the market, thus why many people upgrade to a usb style microphone. The MeCamX does have a LCD screen, however it does not allow any touch display navigation. All commands are given through the WiFi, Power, and Record buttons. This is a huge nightmare when it come to user experience, however I am sure this was a huge impact to make the difference of the price point on this camera.

Overall I would highly consider the MeCamX when shopping for you next WiFi action cam. This is a HUGE contender for three main reasons:

1) PRICE
2) GOODS RECIEVED
3) TECH SPECS
