The Walkera iLook+ HD is an action camera designed for aerial photos and videos as it comes with a large antenna and built in video transmitter. Let’s take a look at the specs:
Walkera iLook+ HD Specs
The camera features a native 4 MP OmniVision OV4689 sensor. That’s the same sensor as used in the Eken H9 or SJ4000+. Although the description often says 12 MP, just the image is upscaled to get 12MP photos.
The camera holds a iCatch 6350M processor as described on the website. Could be that this is the 6350M chip from Sunplus which is also used in the Amkov AMK7000S. The Eken H9 holds a 6330M Sunplus chip.
150 degree wide angle, all glass lens; aperture is f2.8 or even 2.6 – the data is a little inconsistent on their website.
Also here the data varies a bit
- 4K – max. 10fps
- 1080p – max. 60fps
There is no word on 720p with 120fps, but that might be possible, same as for Eken H9 and Amkov AMK7000S
The videos are recorded in .mov files, .h264 codec
Photo Resolution & Format:
max. 12MP .jpg – thats why they call it a 12MP camera, even tough it has a 4MP sensor 😉
The camera doesn’t have a live view or data display as its main purpose is to transmit the image.
i couldn’t find any information if there is a detachable or built in battery;
on the side of the camera there is a port to connect it with a quadcopter and power it that way.
There is a slot for microSD cards, up to 64GB are supported, class 10 recommended
Connectivity & Ports:
The camera offers wifi for remote via App (App for iOS and Android available),
there is a special power plug to connect it with a quadcopter and a port for the camera’s special feature the antenna:
The Walkera iLook comes with a 5.8G mushroom antenna which transmits pictures up to 800 meters.
Dimension & Weight:
58 x 40 x 20 mm; similar to comparable cameras.
The Walkera iLook comes with the antenna and power cables to connect with a quadcopter or drone.
Retailer / Price Comparison:
The Walkera iLook is a bit like the EKEN H9 and Amkov AMK7000S when it comes to the camera specs: all of them use the OmniVision 4MP OV4689 sensor and a Sunplus chip. What’s different of course is that the Walkera iLook+ has a built in 5.8G transmitter with a pluig-in antenna for transmitting images. Therefore it lacks a live view screen, which is not necessary for that purpose. But when comparing these two facts it seems that the Walkera iLook+ is pretty expensive as the EKEN starts under 50 USD.
