It has selectable field-of-view, image stabilization, touch screen, and the aforementioned mic input. This combination, a must for me, means that this 4K camera can be used for everything from an action cam, to a standard 4K cam (with the right choice among the 170°, 140°, 110° and 70° fields of view), or a webcam.And right now, with decent webcams being hard to find because ov covid-19, this is a real plus.
At it's regular price just under $100, the AKASO V50X (an improved model of the V50 with a great many additional features and a complete accessory kit) is a no brainer. At the sale price this afternoon (should be 10-20% off or more), I'd grab one. It even comes with two batteries and a charger.
