There are a ton of interesting, compact camera systems on the market today, and nearly all of them boast 4K recording capabilities. While it might not seem like the high-resolution parameter is anything to write home about in this day and age, camera makers continue to adopt it as a leading principle for their consumer offerings. When a company decides to pack that same 4K technology into one of the world’s smallest keychain cameras, however; that’s worthy of our attention.
AKASO’s Keychain 4K is touted as the world’s smallest 4K vlogging camera, although we’ve certainly seen some alternative models that come close in size, stature, and design. That being said, this unique, USB-sized camera isn’t anything short of interesting, thanks to its 4K/30 fps recording capabilities, internal stabilization, and ultra-wide view angle. Aside from the pint-sized model’s six-axis, anti-shake technology, shooters will also be able to revel in its hands-free shooting capabilities, pairing with a compatible smart device to take time lapses, slow motion captures, and stills, courtesy of its 20-megapixel photo mode. The fact that all of this utility is packed into a small, 36-gram enclosure is awe-inspiring, and when you add an IP56 waterproof rating into the mix, the Keychain becomes a notable vlogging system that’s worthy of our adoration.
