Newcomer to the POV Camera scene, AEE, has released two new cameras: the Shotbox S60 and Shotbox S71. It’s a highly competitive market but their offering in these cameras is very solid for the price point they’re set at.
Both the S60 and S71 feature a fixed 147 degree lense, 10x digital zoom, built-in Wi-Fi and recording onto a Micro SD Card (up to 64GB capacities accepted). The maximum resolution is 1080p on the S60 at up to 50 fps and the maximum frame rate is 100 fps in 720p. The S71 adds 4K recording at either 12 or 15 fps. Both models also do very well on a single battery charge – up to 3 hours on the S60 and up to 2.5 hours on the S71 which, generally speaking, is much longer than many other big name alternatives.
It’s easy to get going with one of these great little cameras straight out of the box. Included (along with everything else I’ve already mentioned) is a camera tilt mount, horizontal/vertical joint (good for tricky angles), 2 curved mounts, 2 flat mounts, Humonitor anti-fog kit, carry pouch, hand strap and USB cable. For a sub $300 price on the S60, there’s really nothing else on the market that represents better value. We’re still yet to put the image quality and performance through its paces properly, however from what we’ve seen it’s really very good.
