Customizing Your AKASO EK7000 Pro 4k Action Camera

Video & Photo Setting

1. Video Resolution: 1080P 60fps, 1080P 30fps, 720P 120fps, 720P 60fps, 4K 25fps, 2.7K 30fps

Default setting is 1080P 60fps.

Note: If you turn on image stabilization, then select 4K 25fps or 2.7K 30fps video resolution, image stabilization will be turned off automatically.

2. Image Stabilization: Off / On

Default setting is Off. 

This setting adjusts the footage to offset for motion during capture. The result is smoother footage, especially in activities with relatively small but fast motion including cycling, motorcycling, and handheld uses. 

Note: Image stabilization is disabled if you select 4K 25fps or 2.7K 30fps video resolution.

3. Angle: Super Wide / Wide / Medium / Narrow

Default setting is Super Wide. 

The angle refers to how much of the scene can be captured through the camera lens. Wide angle captures the largest amount of the scene, while Narrow angle captures the least. 

4. Diving Mode: Off / On

Default setting is Off. 

Turn on Diving Mode, it can compensate for the lack of red light in underwater scenes. Diving Mode is designed to be used in tropical and blue water, optimized for use between 10 and 80 feet.

5. Loop Recording: Off / 1min. / 3min. / 5min.

Default setting is off. 

Loop recording allows your camera to overwrite old files with new files. Once the memory card becomes full, the camera will delete the first video file to make room for the latest file. For example, if the setting for loop recording is “1 Minute”, then the camera will create video clips of 1 minute in length, and a 1-minute clip will be deleted when the camera needs more memory.

Note: Loop Recording is disabled when you select 4K 25fps or 2.7K 30fps video resolution.

6. Time Lapse Video: 1S / 3S / 5S / 10S / 30S / 60S

Default setting is 5S.

Time Lapse Video creates video from frames captured at specific intervals. This option lets you capture a time lapse event and immediately view or share it as a video. Time Lapse Video is captured without audio.

Note: Time Lapse Video is disabled when you select 4K 25fps or 2.7K 30fps video resolution. Image Stabilization and Loop Recording does not function when you record time lapse video.

7. Date Stamp: Off / Date / Date&Time 

Default setting is Date. 

If you turn on Date Stamp, this camera adds date stamp to the photos and videos you take

Default setting is 0.0.

By default, your camera uses the entire image to determine the appropriate exposure level. However, Exposure lets you select an area that you want the camera to prioritize when determining exposure. This setting is particularly useful in shots where an important region might otherwise be over- or underexposed.

When you change this setting, the display immediately shows you the effect on your image. If you change modes, the camera returns to using the entire scene to determine the correct level of exposure.

9. Photo Resolution: 16MP / 14MP / 12MP / 8MP / 5MP / 4MP

Default setting is 16MP.

10. Burst Photo: 3Photos

11. Time Lapse Photo: 2S / 3S / 5S / 10S / 20S / 30S / 60S

Default setting is Unlimited.

Time Lapse Photo captures a series of photos at specified intervals. Use this mode to capture photos of any activity, then choose the best ones later.
