Chinese action camera and car DVR manufacturer Eken is pretty popular for its bang-for-the-buck products like the Eken H8 and the Eken H9. Both these models are now available with an optional remote controller as well. And Eken seems to be wanting to continue this trend with a remote-controlled version of the Eken H3 being brought into the market, dubbed the Eken H3R.
The Eken H3R action camera features a 170-degree wide-angle lens, a Sunplus 6350 chipset, and an OV4689 image sensor. The action camera is capable of recording videos at 4K (15, 10fps), 2.7K (24, 15fps) and 1080p (60, 30fps). In addition, it also supports loop recording and exposure control. You can also capture still images upto 12MP, with time-lapse and burst-mode on tap as well.
The device sports a micro-HDMI, micro-USB, and a micro-SD card slot. It is WiFi-enabled as well, allowing you to control the device and live-preview video from your Android or iOS smartphone. In addition, it features 2 screens: a 2-inch LCD at the back and a status screen at the front.
Power to the device is via a built-in 3.7V 1050mAh battery that is claimed to last for 90min at 1080p (30fps). Moreover, a full charge of the battery takes about 2 hours to complete.
As the title mentions, the Eken H3R comes shipped with a remote controller that is water-resistant up to a depth of 3m and through which you can record videos and capture images.
As far as accessories are concerned, you get a 30m waterproof case and a whole set of standard mounts and accessories including holders, bases, adapters, 3M stickers, a USB cable, etc.
The Eken H3R action camera is available in black, silver, golden and blue and can be yours for under $90 shipped.
