commissioning

For commissioning, an additional micro SD card is required. It is important to note that the camera only supports cards up to 32GB.

The camera can be operated via the integrated function buttons as well as via WLAN. To connect the camera with your smartphone or tablet you have to activate the WLAN of the camera. The camera then builds its own Wi-Fi network, to which one can connect via Wi-Fi. With an additional app, the camera can then be controlled. You can also make adjustments to the image quality, as well as show a live image. You can also switch between video and picture mode and also watch recordings directly on the receiver and share them on social media.

Summary

If you want to take some nice video footage or even take the camera for a swim, you can not go wrong with the CS810W. The camera is so small that it can be stowed away easily in a trouser pocket and thus always has it at hand. It corresponds to the usual Action Cams and offers even more with the WLAN function. Especially if you have mounted the cam somewhere where you just have no access to the display, this feature is perfect. For example, you can attach the camera with a corresponding strap best friend and see through the app, what he is doing.

The resolution of the camera is really good. Of course, it's not comparable to a GoPro 4, but you can watch the videos with pleasure. The brightness adjustment succeeds the CS810W quite well. In my first shots, the colors were a bit too strong, but thanks to the numerous adjustment options, you can regulate this accordingly. However, where I am not sure is whether the camera has indeed installed an image stabilizer. My recordings (see video) are already very blurred. Whether it is due to my shaky hand or the camera, I can not say unfortunately.

I did not like the pictures so much. Since current smartphones make much better pictures. The sound recordings are also clear and clear without a watertight case. With housing you can almost forget the sound. The accessories are very good. There are many parts that can be attached to selfie sticks, which can be combined with helmets or stuck somewhere. A carrying strap or a buoy for diving is missing, but the accessories can be seen. Regarding the processing of the accessories, I could not find anything negative so far. They are made of hard plastic and do not look that they would break any moment.

The waterproof case is well made and the buttons can be easily operated via the pushbuttons on the case. The closure of the housing can also be easily opened and closed.

Particularly interesting is the time lapse function. If you have the camera connected to the electricity and placed somewhere, you can really create very nice timelapse videos.
