PROS

  • It has GoPro-compatible mounts so lots of accessories are available, and it costs less than the GoPro Hero.
  • The 2-inch built-in LCD screen displays a live view and settings.
  • Built-In Wi-Fi gives you camera remote control from your iOS and Android devices.

CONS

  • No memory card is included.
  • The screen is not touch enabled, requiring you to use buttons to navigate.
  • An AC charger--which cuts the charge time by an hour or more--is not included.
ActiveOn might take away GoPro’s entry-level camera position with the ActiveOn CX. Cheaper than the GoPro Hero, the CX comes with a superwide glass lens, a built-in 2-inch LCD screen for live view and settings, removable two-hour battery, micro SD card slot, micro HDMI port, and a USB port. The 5-megapixel sensor produces video at up to 1080p with video effects and stills with optional color effects. Control the action from the camera or from your iOS or Android device via Wi-Fi. The action cam can be used at a depth of 196 feet with the included underwater case. Compared to the GoPro Hero, you get more features for less money, and can even use GoPro mounts.

In use we found that the image contrast is slightly heavy but saturation is good. If shooting indoors, make sure the area is very well lit. If outdoors and shooting in a very bright area on a sunny day (such a ski slope) we found it best to manually turn down the EV setting to reduce the risk of 'burn' in bright, reflective areas.

While the photos made not show, I put the camera though the ringer. The Activeon CX survived with flying colors. This is one action camera that’s came into the game to give GoPro a good market fight.

The Activeon CX Action Camera looks a lot like a GoPro, and even can use some compatible mounts thanks to the standard screw . But unlike that well-known series, with the CX you are getting a nice onboard 2-inch LCD screen for viewing your footage. Plus, your purchase includes a waterproof case, something that few sets include, and it’s good for use at depths as far down as 196 feet.
