Allows to change resulution from 4K 24fps to 1080P 60fps for smoother videos.
Better Option: AKASO V50 Pro (Amazon link) offers better video quality at 4K and 1080P.
Can be used as a dashcam.
Comes with a durable waterproof case, you can record videos at the pool.
Comes with 2 rechargeable batteries – twice as much recording time.
High quality touch screen display.
When recording at 4K – the video is only 24FPS (frames per second), less smooth.
The camera is waterproof only when used with a special case.
While the build quality is good, it doesn’t feel as premium as a GoPro camera (which indeed, costs few times more).
Alternative: Neewer G1 (Amazon link) offers really good build quality and materials.
Battery time is decent, but don’t expect 2 hours from each battery.
VanTop Moment 4 comes with a remote (wrist remote), some people may find it not as useful as using an app.
VanTop Moment 4 Action Camera Review
Nowadays, you can find hundreds of different action cameras for sale online. Some of them are from well known brands like GoPro – and others are made by smaller Chinese companies you might never heard of. Some of these cheaper alternatives are actually pretty good, and offer great value for your money. One 4K action camera I stumbled upon recently is VanTop Moment 4. It gained popularity in the last few weeks, and today I will tell you more about it and if it’s worth buying or not.
VanTop Moment 4 Video Quality
The VanTop Moment 4 action camera is advertised as 4K 20MP. On paper – that sounds really good. In reality – you can’t expect mind blowing 4K video quality from a device this cheap. If you are willing to spend a little bit more money, you can get a camera with better video quality – like the popular AKASO V50 Pro (Amazon link). But nonetheless – this action camera provides good video quality. It’s perfect for vlogs, traveling, swimming and many other activities.
I honestly don’t think that most people need the 4K resolution. In the settings of VanTop Moment 4, you can switch to 1080P – and get 60FPS (frames per second). That will improve the video quality drastically, and 1080P resolution is more than enough in my opinion. You can also turn on the built-in Electronic Image Stabilization. This will prevent blurry videos. This feature works really well – the videos look much more stable. Do keep in mind that when recording at low light enviroment – the video quality and stabilization feature won’t work as well as in outside with sunlight.
VanTop Moment 4 Screen
In the past, most action cameras in this price range, came with a simple and not very clear TTF screen, which wasn’t optimal. This action camera on the other hand, comes with a high quality screen – and it’s also touch – which is a huge advantage. The screen brightness is good – you won’t be able to use it in direct sunlight, but in most scenarios – it will work well and be very usable. Most action cameras don’t feature a very bright screen because it effects the battery greatly.
Many people choose to use their action camera in the pool or even shallow diving. The VanTop Moment 4 action camera comes with a waterproof case which will allow you that. Now, you can use the camera in water and record amazing videos. The water resistance (with the case on) is about 100 feet – 30 meters, very decent. Action cameras with greater water resistance cost much more, and most people don’t need that – unless they are divers.
