Adventure Kings full had action camera
I bought 2 of these cameras late last year and neither one will accept the ad card. Keeps coming up with card error. Is this a software error or something? And I can find my invoice which sucks!!!!
Purchased at 4WD Supacentre.
It does the job well for a cheap trail camera
I bought mine from someone who had purchased two on a deal from 4WD SupaCentre. It was still in its unopened box.
I wanted to bust a cat that keeps getting into our yard, and it worked. Took a few photos and a video of it sneaking around at 4am, and you can clearly see the cat. I had placed the camera on the ground, which was not ideal for triggering the sensor either.
Daytime photos are clear and not overexposed as some other reviews say, but daytime video has weird colours through it and could be a lot better (issue resolved now, see below)....

My Kings camera caught fire on first battery fitment.
I bought two cameras in january. I loaded a full compliment of batteries Everready gold. I left camera off overnight on my bench, next morning no battery life, case had expanded, all batteries seriously expanded and burnt. Battery lid extensively warped and keyboard partially melted the result press buttons are now burnt and non funtional. Photos taken of damage. My "Good" working camera has night vision reduced to a small circle and very dull. Tried recommended cures, new batteries different memory and re format, still same.

For a weatherproof outdoor trail cam very hit and miss. Mine are miss. No help under warranty. If insects can get in so can water. Insects shorted the batteries which obviously leaked, and have corroded everything including the sd card. Both cameras take a maximum of 5 viewable photos then freeze. Mates have some that work perfectly though I have obviously got 2 duds. Less than 12 months old.

Cheap and unreliable - don't waste your money
Bought a year or so ago but this is the first time I've used. Photos are OK (none of the problems reported by others) but the video does not always work.
I cannot see any recorded videos on the actual camera (screen says No File), but when I downloaded to my PC I had all the videos. Image quality is OK on computer monitor.
Sadly many of my videos have not recorded properly - image is frozen after a few seconds but timeline and sound continue to the end of the actual recording.
The camera is so small that it's very easy to get your fingers i...n the shot - selfie stick definitely needed to ensure cleaner shots. I connected to a small selfie stick but the brass nut in the adapter came out after a few seconds rendering that mount useless. Luckily the camera only fell a meter or so onto grass.
Purchased in December 2019 at 4WD Supacentre Online store for $28.00.
The video is clear but photos over exposed and white
I set this up and in full sun the jpegs are overexposed / all white and you can not detect anything. I thought it was good value for money if it worked but unfortunately I bought a dud as I have read other reviews.
If it worked I would recommend it but spend a bit more and get one that can take photos so you can use it as a trail camera and it is fit for purpose.
Purchased in October 2019 at Burliegh for $89.99.
Bought this camera 6 months ago.... "never been able to get it to work " ...wanted it as backup for GoPro unit. waste of money IMO. purchased from 4WD Supa Centre... I only removed it from packaging recently ...so disappointed...
Purchased for $45.00.
Good cheap temporary camera
I bought this camera from the Burleigh 4WD Supa Centre around 07/2019. It was used primarily for SCUBA diving footage between 1msw and 17msw.
The footage came out pretty clear however there were leaking issues that started this month at only 6msw (the camera is rated waterproof to 30msw) and I believe that is what caused the issue where the camera will no longer recognise ANY memory card. The camera is now a brick that lights up with the adventure kings logo and that is it.
I don't know where the 'overexposure' complaints come from as I have ...used it for 11 months underwater and taking pictures of diving groups above water and the quality was always good. They are not built to last (probably made in some chinese sweatshop). 11 months out of a camera is appalling, however the footage was good. I have included a video taken just today with it to demonstrate the quality.

Poor quality photos during daylight. All washed out and overexposed.
Date and time constantly reset, they work sometimes and then they just randomly stop working.
Cheap product, wouldn’t recommend these to anyone.
Purchased in November 2019 at 4WD Supacentre Online store for $338.20.
Overexposure a huge problem
Unless the camera is fully in the shade and pointing to the shade the photos are basically white.
Looking through the camera it looks fine but all photos are overexposed and of no benefit.
Purchased in November 2019 at 4WD Supacentre Online store for $175.00.
Cheap & unreliable
When Camera did work, it was ok. pic`s and videos are ok. Easy to operate & transfer data to computer. Problems, buttons would fail, unable to turn on, unable to navigate between functions, 2 units under warranty both, had same problems.

hi, I found my adventure kin’s FHD 1080 washed up on the beach after a storm. It seems to be in good order. I have charged it up but I don’t know how to work it is there a manual?
There is a good reason that it was In the ocean...they are crap just like the reviews say. Go Pro is the the answer
Good Morning John,
We're sorry to hear that has happened to you, we do have a manual for this but I cannot attach to this thread.
