Campark Sports Camera-01

This summer I bought my son a remote controlled car.  Soon, I thought "what if I could attach a camera to it?"  I already had GoPro cameras, but I wasn't sure mounting them to a zippy kid's toy that's prone to crashing.  Fortunately, I had the chance to review the Campark Sports Camera, which boasts [...]

The SJCAM X1000 is another affordable action camera, or POV camera, that is biting on the heels of more popular and expensive action cameras. With the x1000's features and picture quality, this is a camera that could be an inexpensive alternative to higher-priced cameras such as the ever-popular GoPro. Right off the bat, the X1000 [...]

ThiEye 03

My first impression on the i60 from ThiEYE was that it was going to be another POV action camera. Although it is similar to other cameras on the market, the i60 has some unique features of its own that makes it stand out from the rest. The i60 has the typical rectangle matchbox shape. It [...]

But when we try to use our smartphone to take a picture that looks like that it doesn't work.  We're trying to get something sold on eBay, so we have to have pictures.  Getting the object is easy enough, but it [...]

While OPPO might not be a well known brand outside of Asia, I've been watching their expansion outside of that region and their products after owning an OPPO Find 7A over the last couple of months.  Rather than make "run of the mill" phones, they've been trying to add functionality and hardware to  differentiate themselves.

I've said it before, I'll say it again...I love security cameras. There is a certain peace of mind in knowing that if someone breaks into your home, you will know about it instantly. Additionally, most newer cameras have some type of DVR function, allowing you to provide Police with footage if bad guys ever break into [...]
