A short review of LIDL’s new 2019 4K Action Camera (branded Silvercrest) with sample footage and audio. Including underwater, image stabilisation.
160 degree wide angle lens
13 Megapixel (CMOS Sensor)
3840 x 2160 (30fps)
2720 x 1530 (30 fps)
1920 x 1080 (60fps)
1280 x 720 (120 fps)
I purchased it in April 2019 from a UK Lidl Store (definitely not sponsored).
I tested out several of the modes and setting but this wasn’t an exhaustive rugged test. I mainly want to use the camera for YouTube videos, a little bit of vlogging, b-roll from interesting angles rather than serious extreme sporting situations.
I like the camera, it works well for the price point. There isn’t the same image quality or stabilisation of e.g. the Go Pro Hero 7 Black from reviews I have seen of that. But it is a fifth of the price!
edited to add I had assumed that as Lidl weren’t selling spare batteries that they wouldn’t be available, but as someone has pointed out in the comments they are a standard battery, they are available, and really affordable for two with a dual camera. I’ll try them out. Cheers Lewie!
