The X4 Action Cam is a feature-packed device, ready to capture 4K video and 12-megapixel photos from the handlebars of a bicycle or the top of your helmet. The tiny rectangular camera is more than just a GoPro knock-off, however, as it comes with a 40m waterproof housing, several mounts, and features you wouldn’t necessarily expect. They include slow-motion and stabilised video so your downhill races don’t look like a blurry mess. Its screen won’t respond to touches but it is clear enough to give you a good idea of what you’re filming, and it features a wi-fi connection to let you control it from a connected phone. Its build quality does not match that of its main rival, but it is a solid, cheaper alternative.
