Cameras are very common today in devices. Seemingly, they allow consumers to capture important moments on a daily basis. Although cameras in devices are able to take good quality pictures, some photographers will still opt for a high-end, professional camera. Some believe that using a camera is still different from just pointing and clicking with devices. Good thing there are cameras designed with special functionalities that certain devices can’t attain.
The V6 was designed and devised by Shenzhen-based company ThiEYE, which specializes in action, outdoor, 360° VR, and professional cameras. Remarkably, they value technological innovation, convenience, and style when it comes to designing their products in order to suit the needs of every user.
The ThiEYE V6 is an action camera that has Wi-Fi connectivity and comes equipped with replaceable filters. Its compact size makes it effortless to be carried anywhere, making action photography less cumbersome. Its metallic shell is designed to endure any outdoor activities. If upgraded with a waterproof case, the action camera won’t halt as it boasts IP68 standards, enabling it to operate up to 60m underwater. Furthermore, its housing allows resistance against dust and shock. Pictures taken from this action camera and adjustment settings are viewable through the 2.0” TFT LCD screen. The action camera is powered by a detachable, 1180mAh lithium-ion battery, which allows for a longer operation.
Taking pictures with this camera is very convenient, thanks to several choices of storage. The action camera supports 128GB Class 10 and UHS-I MicroSD/SDHC/SDXC storage formats. Conventional file transferring is done through a D-Type HDMI and Mini USB 2.0. Users can also employ cloud storage since the action camera supports Wi-Fi connectivity.
