Just received my fresh Akaso V50 Elite. Or is it? Doesn't look the same as in your web page pics. Box and camera read as V50 ELITE, but the front of the camera is various than your pic here. Also, I downloaded the Akaso DV application and was able to connect to my fresh "V50 ELITE???", by simply following the directions. However, it only seems to connect on the EK5000 1080P option. It does not let me to change pages to the V50 ELITE page when the Wi-Fi is turned on. If I turn off the Wi-Fi and disconnect, then I can flip through the application to the ELITE option, but then when I turn on the Wi-Fi and go to the application and connect, it has reverted back to the EK5000 1080P page in the application and won't allow me change pages. Am I doing something wrong or is this an application issue or "glitch"? Firmware? Knockoff with EK5000 hardware? Factory screw-up? Camera firmware need updated? I just don't understand.
The application works, however there are few things not quite right. I have a Brave 4, but the application connects thinking it is a Brave 6. You can't record in 4K using the app. It will only allow you choose up to 1080 while using the app. And, why can't we see the preview in landscape?
Works fine once ya figure things out. I had no issue connecting and staying connected. Your data has to be off to connect via wireless connection and control the camera from your phone. The only problem I found is that the camera saves video as a MOV it must be converted to MP4.. Then you can upload to any social media. Is it a pain in [email protected]#$% yes it is. But hey you obtain what you for. If you wish top notch use a GOPRO. As I figure things out ill update. Pics will upload just fine to any social media.
Creates a dedicated connection between camera and phone. After first connection, presents only one camera model (the wrong one), but seems to work anyway. Shows zero images or videos in the My Album space, but images present up in Samsung Gallery. Overall, a not good showing.
At first I gave this application a 2 star review because I couldn't figure out how to connect my phone to my camera. Then I figured out that ty poor experience was user error and the application works just fine. For anyone who can't figure out how to connect the phone and the camera, turn on the Wi-Fi mode on your camera, then, if you look at the available Wi-Fu networks on your phone, one should say Akaso. Connect to that and then connect to you camera on the app. If that doesn't work than I can't support you.
I just bought v50 elite camera. App works amazing and I just updated my rating after figuring out the method it works. All poor reviews I have seen is for incompetence of end users to figure out the process. I rated it with 1 star first because could not connect myself. But after reading detailed manual provided digitally on www service with a link which comes with your camera, it has step by step instructions and was surprised how easily it connects and reliable in operation. Very useful and works amazing on my camera. Thank you Akaso!
Buggy app. Needs fixes I recently purchased an Akaso V50 Pro. Thought I'll test this application since its the proprietary one. But right after selecting the camera from the menu for the first time, it reverts to Akaso A7000 when I use the application after. Application is a hit or miss, the features work as advertised but the connection is often buggy and leads to no response or crashes. I'm running Android device 9 Pie on the Honor 8 Pro. Consider using third party apps for a consistent experience.
Recently purchased the camera on Amazon for $120. Downloaded the application to my Pixel 2 (HTC) with Android device 9 + recent updates for my phone. I wanted to be able to see what the camera is looking at once I mount it to my helmet so I can angle the camera correctly. This application is excellent and quick as a wireless "field monitor". Speed: excellent! phone keeps up with the camera with almost no lag! Steps to connect: 1. TURN OFF / DISABLE Cell Data 2. Turn on WIFI on the camera the back screen will display the camera's SSID (wifi name) and the password that you need to enter in your phone to connect to the camera's wifi. After I connected to the camears's wireless connection I got a notice "no internet" on my phone which is ok as this is a temporary while connecting to the camera. Next, I started the application and received a warning that after android device ver 6 and newer must disable / disconnect from your cell service. Next, I selected the model of my camera Akaso v50 Elite. I took a still image and short video [[email protected]] and played it back and transferred the still images and video to my phone and then to my computer via USB-C and everything played fine in windows 8 media player.
Just so folks understand. 1. A lot of of us have read the manual. 2. A lot of of us have followed the suggestions of those and changed our phone settings to those that were recommended. My HTC Desire Eye has android device 4.6 It recorded about 3 seconds then the picture froze up. In some cases it rebooted itself. Several times I had to fully turn off the phone. I tried using my Samsung Galaxy tab S, I tried it there. Same with settings. Android device 6.01. It lasted 6 minutes. Then either picture froze, or dropped from wireless connection connection to the camera. It sometimes keeps recording while the picture is frozen. I had a couple of other problems with the camera so I just sent it back and got a fresh one. Tried the fresh one and had the same issues. Camera seems to work fine on its own. If you don't have a problem, post what you are using and the ver of Android. That will support the APP programmers figure out what is going on. Until they figure out what it is, I'm going to have to use my camera as a pc camera and see how it does there with obs. I'll check back. Unique thanks to Eileen at Akaso, who tried to support me through all my issues..
People are flaming this for NO reason. the application is to INTERFACE with the camera, not CONNECT to it. simply activate the wireless connection in the camera, connect to it like any other network on your phone, in your phone settings menu (check the default password for your model online). Only 4 stars because this is not stated plainly in the app, and because the video playback is a small laggy on the phone, layout is simple to read and works well.
absolutely horrible! Will not load onto the phone properly and is asking questions in Chinese characters we think so we are unable to do anything with it. this application is a disgrace. Don't bother UPDATE...I had several emails with a very nice lady names Kora that walked me through the application setup with the phone and is now working sometimes. Just very hard to connect and use. Not recommended
Beautiful not good app. The cameras from akaso are fine, but this application and the it intales just doesnt work. Ive tried with a few various phones, but the cameras just simplt dont connect properly to the device. Lots of drama dissconnecting, and images and video are almost impossible to download. Its virtually useless.
the camera is great. this application on the other hand not so much. I do everything it asks. I'll turn off my data, and use akaso's wifi. I'll connect to the application with my camera. I'll then record a video and then go to check out the video that I just recorded on the Akaso DV application and it's not there....somebody anybody please comment/reply if you know what's going on. I can record with this application but can't see the videos.
Hi, I recently purchased this product from the internet, I ride motorcycles and I thought on buying something inexpensive incase of we all know what, but this go pro has become my number 1 recorder by far. quality is good, and simple to use, I love the remote cuz I dont have to be looking for buttons while driving. I give it 5 starts by far.
just read the other reviews... nothing various with mine. won't connect.. keeps crashing... need to remove the battery when camera locks up... I don't see how AKASO can actually let this application to be "used" by the public. and I say "used" loosely because it never works.
I just purchased an AKASO EK7000, ready for taking on my skiing holiday. Setting up the application was simple and everything seems to link up ok so far. Excellent size and certainly amazing value for money. Amazing enough battery life. Plenty of accessories come with the camera and the remote control is amazing to have. Link back to Application on my phone, simple to obtain videos online and do what I need.
Will not connect to the Akaso EK7000 camera. Tried the same application on iphone and camera connects. But the application on the iphone is still terrible. Freezes not good wireless connection range cant play videos. Sending camera back to amazon. should have bought a gopro!!
Horrid but important app. Takes forever to footage from my Brave 4 4K and then extremely unstable on playback. Application keeps stopping for no reason. Downloading a 14 min clip took nigh on an hour and a quarter. Resulting 14 mins of footage stopped 18 times during playback. Pathetic attempt at a companion app.
amazing camera. shame about the app. and why does the application wish permission to create and manage phone calls... why when I deny the create and manage phone calls request do I obtain Chinese text. just plug the camera directly into your phone and search it in your file manager. don't need this application to move your files.
in short, do not use this app. while you can sort of use your phone as a remote after you sync up with your cam. if you test to stream from the cam to your phone you will corrupt the file so it cannot even be used on your pc. just use a micro sd to sd adaptor and us your pc. do not bother with the application
a lot of problems with v50 elite , data obtain disabled when application is running. once you are connected to camera WiFi you can't select camera type it will only give you random camera no swap option to select. tested it with various type of Android device os dont work.
