Just after the success of the MGCOOL Explorer 1S and the more budget-friendly Explorer ES, MGCOOL have decided to launch yet another action cam, it’s called Explorer Pro and the company promises enhanced performance over past generation for less than $70. Let’s have a quick look at its features!
MGCOOL’s Explorer Pro main highlight is what they call 6G Sharkeye wide-angle lens, which allows to capture images and videos with a less distorted look. They say Sharkeye technology makes this camera better than the GoPro Hero 4 in terms of wide view, light transmission and color accuracy.
The action camera is equipped with a Sony IMX179 sensor which can shoot images with a resolution of up to 16MP. The sensor’s BSI (Back Side Illumination) helps to record high quality images even in low-light situations and is more power efficient.
The MGCOOL Explorer Pro sports a 2-inch display and an Allwinner V3 CPU which supports H.264 video encoding. Videos can be recorded at 4K (3840*2160) 30fps, 2.7K also at 30fps and Full HD videos at 60fps.
The lens on the Explorer Pro has a very wide 170-degree viewing angle, so your videos are going to look pretty immersive. The camera supports microSD cards up to 64GB and is water-resistant up to 30 meters underwater.
The Explorer Pro is fueled by a 1050mAh battery which allows for 100 minutes of video recording at 4K. There’s also a WiFi module to connect it to your phone through the Android or iOS app.
The MGCOOL Explorer Pro will be available for purchase at $69.99 from various online retailers like Gearbest in the following days.
