Don't be fooled by the picture. Its not as big as it looks

Once you get the AMK-OX5 by AMKOV, you’ll definitely fall in love like we did. It is essentially as small as a lens, weighs only 99 grams (excluding the battery), and can even be attached to a phone. It is especially ideal for people who don’t have an assistant as it can be controlled remotely via your smart phone (or even android smart watch, though that would be a bit tacky) through WiFi. The advantage of WiFi over Bluetooth is the increased range and speed.

It features a 20 megapixel sensor for clear and sharp images and gram for gram, can compete with many DSLRs on its own is better than many cell phone cameras that we know. The built in lenses allow upto 5X optical zoom, and can zoom in an additional 4X digitally. The images we took in the night were impressive and much better than the default camera of Samsung Galaxy S6.


This small wonder even has a 900mah replaceable battery that lasts quite a while. It has three shooting modes on its own, single shot / self-timer (2s & 10s) / continuous shooting (3 – 5 photos), though when attached directly with the phone, you can also use the various shooting modes available in different phones. The default viewing angle is 74°, and with lens attachment (included in the package), it can also take 120° wide angle photos. The images and videos can directly be transmitted by the wifi camera to the phone or they can also be saved in the lens itself, in a MicroSD card (not included with the camera).

Highly recommended for geeks obsessed with pictures and videos, or YouTubers to record themselves via a decent remote controlled camera that doesn’t cost thousands of dollars.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to understand so much approximately this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I think that you just could do with some p.c. to power the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
