If you’re in the market for a new action camera, but it hurts you just looking at the GoPro Hero 5‘s price, then this might be the deal for you.
Scan UK has a cracking deal on the EE 4G Action Camera that brings the price down from £79.99 to just £23.99.
Released in 2015 to great fanfare the EE 4G Action Camera didn’t set the world on fire, but that was mainly because it cost and eye-watering £399 at launch.
The EE 4G Action Camera is a connected action camera that lets you live-stream your footage as you record it. You can even check out the footage you’re filming in real-time using the bundled View Finder smartwatch.
The camera boasts a 13-megapixel sensor that’s capable of recording in Full HD 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second. It’s also waterproof.
If you want to livestream footage, you’ll need a SIM card. Fortunately, the camera is unlocked to all networks, so you don’t necessarily need to spring for an EE SIM. However, this deal gets even better as the action cam is bundled with a free EE £10 500MB, 250 minutes and texts SIM. It also comes with a waterproof case and a lightweight case.
We didn’t fully review the EE 4G Action Cam, but we were relatively impressed with the product after a brief hands-on session. Here’s our early verdict, written at the time of the product’s launch at a review price of £399:
“A great idea on paper, but I need to see EE’s 4G camera hold a connection while I’m biking through the woods, scaling a mountain or simply sat at home before I’m overly impressed. For now, on first use, it feels like a strong but confused camera for the always-sharing, always-watching world. GoPro shouldn’t be too worried, though.”
At this price, though, it’s a bone-fide Black Friday 2017 bargain, it’s practically a priced as a stocking-filler. Free to collect in store, or £4 extra to be delivered.
