CNET First Look
Replay XD's Prime X action cam shoots for prosThe company's fourth-gen camera has one of the most compact designs we've seen, built with components and features that raise it above your average action cam.
[MUSIC] What's great about the action cam market is that there is a lot of variety, so instead of just a bunch of copycats, you get things like this, the Replay XD Prime X. I'm Josh Goldman with CNet, and the Prime X is the company's fourth gen camera and has been designed with professional use in mind. Made from aluminum, the ultra compact body is tough and waterproof without a housing. It has a custom-made, cinema-quality lens paired with a high sensitivity 16 megapixel Sema sensor and enough processing power to capture video at 1080p, at 60 frames per second, or 720p at 120 frames per second. Settings can be changed with the buttons on back. Via an Android or iOS app when wirelessly connected to a mobile device or by altering a text document that gets stored on a micro SD card. This includes frame rays of 24 or 48 frames per second or making adjustments to exposure, white balance, saturation, [INAUDIBLE] and more. The micro HDMI port supports full ray streaming to a display, external recorder, or wireless transmitter, and adapters are available for feeding the camera with an external mic for better audio quality. A nice assortment of accessories are included too, so there's very little not to like here, except for maybe its built in battery, though even that depending on what you're recording at. It lasts for between two and three and a half hours of continuous recording. Video quality is solid, especially if your goal is playback on tablets and smartphones. Well, you could read the whole review on CNET.com, but if you need a low profile camera with some pro features, this is a stand out. I'm Josh Goldman and that's a look at the Replay XD Prime X.
