FuriBee H8S – Action camera under $150 for pixel fanatics
Thanks to the latest Ambarella A12S75 SoC (imaging processor), UHD action cameras like this FuriBee H8S become widely available. The first 4K action cameras were able to record Ultra HD videos only with 15fps. Now, thanks to the more powerful processing units, they offer 4k@30fps and 1080P@120fps videos.
On first look, the FB H8S cam is a rebranded EKEN H8 PRO. Practically these two cameras have about the same features and they use even the same APP (EZ iCam).
A generous 2″ color display on the back of the camera allows to configure it as well as to preview the captured videos.
