I've been very pleased with 4 Apeman dashcams I've purchased, one which is well over 2 years old now with no problems other than a broken suction mount. I was going on a snorkeling trip and needed a new action cam to replace my very old Hero2 so I ordered Apeman's A100 Action Cam 2 weeks before a snorkeling trip. I was worried that it would not arrive in time but it shipped quicker than what was predicted. I was very pleased to find the action cam came with an extra battery and more accessories than they mention in their advertisements. While the instructions provided with the camera were minimal, setting up and using the camera is pretty intuitive so i had it up and running quickly. I used it for a week snorkeling and it worked great for video and pictures. I've not explored all the features on the camera yet but am very happy with it so far. Just a note that Apeman also has the A100S version which is what I had planned on purchasing but I did not notice that when looking at the documentation for the A100S, the more basic A100 camera is actually listed and there's a "toggle" on their ordering page that has to be clicked to switch to order the A100S. I'd be interested to see if the A100S is better that the A100.
Very good camera, but the aftersales office doesn't work well. I'm looking for a waterproof cover, but none of them is answering to my emails.
we are sorry that our service did not bring you a satisfactory experience. Due to the time difference, we may not be able to reply to you in time, but we promise to respond within 24H and hope to get your understanding.
They create a shipping label very fast but that means nothing with the delivery time. Maybe for some people is worth the wait...NOT ME because those 5-7 days are not true.
Very easy to use. Love the pics & waterproof case. I’m not a tech person so Still trying to figure out how to keep the Wi-Fi between camera and phone going so I don’t have to take camera out often to reset while out kayaking. Very happy with my purchase… will recommend to others.
I tested several action cams and settled on the Apeman A100. It’s the right choice for me.
Set-up: Navigating the menus is simple and intuitive. The touch screen is more responsive than that of GoPro. Connecting to the phone is straightforward and the phone app is also intuitive. Good job!
You can use the camera while it is charging, run it off a power brick, and you can transfer photos/videos from the camera to your PC using the USB cable (why can’t every action camera do these things?!)
Photos: Surprisingly decent. The colors are true to life and not weird. There is very good sharpness when viewed on a 27” PC screen. Unlike photos from other action cameras, Apeman photos are NOT over saturated and the edges are NOT over sharpened to make up for poor image quality.
Videos: I’m not a video expert but the videos are very good. I received good feedback on my videos.
Hyperlapse: Although you can adjust the speed of the Hyperlapse, I feel that even the slowest speed is too fast for my enjoyment.
Image stabilization: Image stabilization is much better than without it, but it could be better. I always mount my camera on a stable surface, so this does not affect me.
I tried to upload a video, but this site wouldn't let me. Instead, the attached photo, although boring, does show good sharpness and color.
Apeman a100 is excellent value for the dollar and I highly recommend it!
