With LG another well known brand offers an action camera. Besides 4K resolution a special feature of the LG Action CAM is built in LTE to stream the footage directly from the camera – no phone needed.
LG Action CAM LTE Specs
12,3 MP – 1/2.3 inch sensor. Yi Action Camera 2 and GoPro Hero 4 black edition also hold a 12,3 MP sensor.
Resolution / Frame Rate:
- 4K – max. 30 fps
- 1080p – max. 60 fps
- 720p – max. 120 fps
It’s a pity that there won’t be 120 fps in 1080p like on GoPro and Yi 2. Streaming is only possible with 720p and 30fps max.
2GB RAM built in and up to 2TB with a microSD card.
1.400 mAh battery, I’m currently not sure if it is replaceable or built in.
That’s the same capacity as Yi2, more than GoPro Hero 4 offers.
Dimension / Weight:
Size: 35 x 35 x 77.9mm – the camera is about the same size as the GoPro Hero 4 Session on the front side, but a little longer.
LG Action CAM will offer remote access via LTE, so you can control the camera, watch and record live footage from your smartphone.
Live Streaming – the camera is capable of streaming 720p 30fps footage via LTE directly to YouTube or Facebook.
Waterproof – LG Action CAM itself is waterproof for 1m depth. For diving or other water sports a case will be available late 2016.
Gyroscope – is built in for image stabilization
GPS – great to see GPS built in. I like to record GPS data with the footage to display it in videos later on. I was missing this feature on GoPros for a long time. Revl Arc built in even more sensors which record data, which are used for auto editing in their app.
Currently I didn’t find any info on pricing. The camera will be available in June / July.
