With the advances made in smartphone cameras every year, it is getting to the point where it seems silly to own another camera; with one exception – an action camera. No matter how good your smartphone camera gets, it will never be small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, or be waterproof enough to take underwater pictures. And those are just two of the features of the Activeon CX Action camera.
The Activeon CX action camera that I was given to review, sells for only $119.99. And yet, it has better features than other action cameras.
Activeon CX allows you to take and share all the moments of your family’s lives. With waterproof housing and many accessories, you can take pictures and videos anywhere and everywhere. And you can:
- Control all camera settings from your smartphone
- View pictures and videos from your smartphone, even though the Activeon CX has a LCD viewfinder
- Wirelessly save, download and share from your smartphone by downloading the iOS or Android app.
Here are some of the other great features you get with the Activeon CX camera:
- Built in WiFi
- Super Wide View
- Full HD 1080P 30fps
- Longer Battery 120 min
- 2” Built-in LCD
- Made with a Universal Screw, it is compatible with all types of tripods or monopods using 1/4 universal screw hole.
One of my favorite aspects of the Activieon CX is that it is so easy to use. But that doesn’t mean that you can only do simple things. You can easily navigate the menu with two buttons to quickly switch between photos, videos and time lapse video mode. You can also add filters and special effects, directly from the camera. This is the first camera that isn’t part of a phone, that I found easy to use.
Activeon also sells many accessories for its action cameras. There are a variety of mounts, straps (chest, head), connectors and more. My favorite accessory is a pack of 6 color face plates for your CX camera so that you can change the color of your camera whenever you want. The Activeon CX is already small and extremely light, now it can be colorful also.
Not only is this a great camera to get yourself, but it is affordable enough to give as a gift. What great gifts for your family or yourself these Activeon CX Action Cameras would make. You can purchase Activeon action cameras at the Activeon website and at Target, Sears, Gamestop, BestBuy.com. Walmart.com and more.
