If you know about the ISAW Edge, then the ISAW Wing WiFi Action Camera is its less expensive sibling. It is missing the Edge’s 4K video shooting while having a less comprehensive mounting bundle. Even though it is placed at a smaller price package, there is still plenty of features to go around for this GoPro competitor.
The ISAW Wing WiFi Action Camera Ditches the 4K Video Shooting for a Smaller Price Package
Once again, the most noticeable omission on the ISAW Wing WiFi Action Camera is the Edge’s ability to shoot at 4K video resolution. There is no 1,440p or 2.7k resolution options either. The maximum resolution you’re going to get here is Full HD, or 1,080p. Once again, however, it can only run at 30fps at this resolution rather than 60. If you want to aim for 60fps, then you will have to lower down the video recording further down to 720p to achieve that frame-rate.
Aside from the drop on video resolutions, there is also a drop in its imaging sensor. The Edge was able to shoot stills and videos with its 16-megapixel sensor, where as the ISAW Wing WiFi can do these with its 12-megapixel one. Also, there’s no RAW capability either.
Aside from these, there is also a less than generous mounting kit as it loses the suction mount found on the Edge. The extra links on the Wing Wi-Fi for extending the length of the connection, as well as rotating the device to 90 degrees are also missing. Still, the hand grip is still included along with the wrist strap, so you don’t have to worry about dropping the camera when you’re recording scenes with frantic action involved.
This hand grip also doubles as a float. Therefore, you won’t have to lose the action camera if it suddenly evades your grip while in deep water. In the event that it does, there is a waterproof housing that will let the camera survive underwater of up to 40-meters in depth which is able to bring a better peace of mind.
The image quality provided on the Wing Wi-Fi is decent enough with its 12-megapixel sensor. The lens is a tiny, but fast f/2.2 aperture lens, which lets manage a decent color fidelity even in low light conditions. However, there is a bit of picture noise during low-light situations.
The ISAW Wing WiFi Action Camera is a decent offering at its price range. This action camera is for people who just want an above average camera that don’t want to shell out cash for a higher-end device.
