Once you obtain the AMK-OX5 by AMKOV, you’ll definitely fall madly in love like we did. It is essentially as small as a lens, weighs only 99 grams (excluding the car battery), and may even be that come with a phone. It is especially perfect for people who don’t produce an assistant as it could be controlled remotely via your touch screen phone (as well as android smart watch, though that will be a bit tacky) through WiFi. The advantage of WiFi over Bluetooth would be the increased range and speed.

It incorporates a 20 megapixel sensor for clear and sharp images which enables it to compete with many DSLRs alone. The inbuilt lenses allow upto 5X optical zoom, which enables it to zoom in one more 4X digitally. The images we took in the evening were impressive and far better than the default camera of Samsung Galaxy S6.

This small wonder even includes a 900mah replaceable battery that lasts a long time. It has three shooting modes by itself, single shot / self-timer (2s & 10s) / continuous shooting (3 – 5 photos), though when attached directly using the phone, it's also possible to use the various shooting modes accessible in different phones. The default viewing angle is 74°, with an attachment (within the package), additionally, it can take 120° wide angle photos. The images and videos can directly be transmitted towards the phone or they're able to also be held in the lens itself, within a MicroSD card (not included while using camera).

When launched, it retailed for upwards of $220, but has become on sale (albeit to get a limited time) which enables it to be bought for $114 ($112 if you work with the mobile app) on Aliexpress (includes free freight). The package incorporates:

1 Smart camera
1 Camera bag
1 120° wide angle lens
1 Phone clip (can be attached with almost any smartphone, including iPhone 6S)
1 Connector
1 USB cable
1 900mAh Battery
1 Lens bag
1 User manual (Chinese & English)

Highly appropriate for geeks enthusiastic about pictures and videos, or YouTubers to record themselves using a decent remote control camera that doesn’t cost 1000s of dollars.
