Elephone have confirmed that they will be entering the action camera market with a sports camera with up to 4K video capture.
Following up from Elephone’s 4K teaser yesterday we have the first images and specification details for the phone makers first action camera. Images come courtesy of 9to5actioncamera’s Facebook page and show a bright yellow camera with ELE logo that appears similar in design SJCAM models.
We managed to get our hands on the official specifications for the ELE CAM 4K Action camera (official name) from our sources at Elephone. The pecs confirm that the sports camera will come with 16 mega-pixel OV4689 sensor and Allwinner V3 chipset, meaning that 4K video recording is supported but only at 15fps.
The camera will also record 2.7K at 30fps, 1080p at 60fps and 720 HD video at 120FPS. Built in WIFI means you can operate the ELE CAM via Android or IOS devices, and a 170 degree wide angle lens is on par with what other action camera’s are packing these days.
