The Apeman Trawo is among the best budget friendly Action Cameras – offering native 4K resolution, good hardware, good software, many accessories and – I could say – rather excellent support – and all that is fitted within the 85USD retail price – which is quite phenomenal.

For the last 12 months the price of the Trawo dropped by around 40 USD, and the packaging now includes an extra bracket (and a lot of other mounts!), and a much more detailed set of instructions. Overall it remains competitive camera, which tries to steal from the glory and market of models like the SJCAM SJ8 Plus, firefly 8s, the Mijia 4K camera, we can even compare to the GoPro Hero 5.
Exploring the Apeman packaging – you will remain with mostly positive impressions – it looks very nice, the unboxing experience is way above average, they managed to design their own shape and style – and – we should congratulate Apeman for not being the one more actioncam manufacturer to copy GoPro.

The most significant disadvantage I can point to is the lack of a tripod mount, and this has reduced significantly my capabilities to shoot from exciting angles attached to a tripod. This is why the availability of a bracket is so important and thumbs up to Apeman for already including it as a standard accessory. Since my package is older, I unfortunately don’t have it.
Hardware is very good – HiSilicon chipset, 16MP Panasonic sensor, F/1,8 aperture and 170 degree FOV, powered by 1350mah battery – sounds good!
So – let’s explore these menus – the modes can be switched using short press on the power button, and the settings are three clicks away. You have a lot of good options – switching the resolutions – 4K, 2.5K, 1080p up to 60fps; There’s a higher frame rate on 720p for slow motion, but – well it doesn’t look very exciting. There are a few photo configuration options, time lapse mode, even angle adjustment is available. Exposure controls, ISO up to 1600, white balance and scene selection – these are the four ways to manually improve the quality of the video. There is option to rotate by 180 degrees.
Since Wifi is there – we can count on a smartphone app.
As for video quality – being not a great fan of this particular Panasonic sensor, I can say that it actually performs remarkably well installed in the Trawo – the video quality is excellent, accurate colors, acceptable dynamic range, very good low light performance – and it is hard to find serious limitations or shortcomings. It is a very capable camera which can well challenge the GoPro hero 5 at almost 1/3 of the price – so certainly a model to be considered if you are looking for a very good action camera. I’ve had good results with each one of the shooting modes, however because of the lack of a tripod mount I didn’t shoot that many timelapse videos as I wanted. Bitrates are around 64 in 4k, 30mbit in 1080p 60fps, and about half of that for 30 FPS. And the battery life was decent.
