AKASO Brave 8 Action Camera Review (Part 1)

07/15/2022
Share

AKASO has become well-known for being a reliable mid-range alternative to more expensive action cameras. With the AKASO Brave 8, the brand looks to become a true competitor among higher-end action cams. I recently had the opportunity to test out this new 4K camera myself, which was a great excuse to get out and about during some cold winter days.

AKASO has become well-known for being a reliable mid-range alternative to more expensive action cameras. With the AKASO Brave 8, the brand looks to become a true competitor among higher-end action cams. I recently had the opportunity to test out this new 4K camera myself, which was a great excuse to get out and about during some cold winter days.

 

Overview of Features

The AKASO Brave 8 Action Camera doesn’t skimp on features. In fact, the feature set can easily rival its more expensive competitors. It offers an impressive 4K resolution at 60fps, though this can be adjusted depending on your needs. It also supports 12 MP and 48 MP photos.

The lightweight camera has a front and back screen, allowing you to both do traditional filming and take great selfie videos and photos. Don’t hesitate to use it out in the rain or while swimming either. Without a waterproof case, the camera itself is still safe up to 33ft. or 10m. With the optional case, this is boosted to 196ft. or 60m.

It’s designed to feature far superior sound quality than previous AKASO action cameras. Not only will it pick up audio well, but the 1/2-inch CMOS sensor, complete with a nine-layer glass lens and Quad Pixel technology, ensures you don’t miss any visual details.


Some of the other notable features include:

SuperSmooth image stabilization

8K time lapse

16x slo-mo

Super-wide angle, wide angle, portrait perspective, and narrow angle modes

AI face metering

1550 mAh battery

USB-C, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connections

microSD card support up to 512 GB (not included)

One-click capture, remote control, and app control


In the Box

Everything you need to get started is included, except a microSD card. You’ll need to purchase a U3 card, or you’ll get “low speed” errors, even if you just try to take photos.

What immediately impressed me was the inclusion of two batteries and a dual-battery charger. Of course, you can also use the included USB-C cable to charge the battery while it’s in the AKASO Brave 8 action camera.
