Even if SOOCOO S70 could seem a medium range action camera, let’s try it togheter to understand all his innovative features!
You will receive your your SOOCOO S70 in a very comfortable and nice designed black bag. This incredible bag allows users to carry their personal camera with no problems.
SOOCOO design is very minimal and compact. Its front side is black with a squared pattern all around the lens and a flashmode button while on back side there is an orange grip sorrounding camera screen.
Grip is ergonomic and easy to use, and has got 6 buttons to go through camera Menu. We have Zoom, Copy and Ok buttons on the left side, Flash and Up or Down arrows buttons on the right. We also have a USB and HDMI input. Remember that USB cable can be also used as recharger.
There are lot of great accessories within the box that make sure buyer has all his needs satisfied without spending anymore money in extra accessories.
The first four are of common use and they don’t need a detailed specification; we are talking about User Manual, EU Power Recharger, USB and two, one Screw 3M double-sided adhesives. Remember to buy a Micro Sd memory because it is not included in accessories.
Other elements are very important for everyday filiming.

Then there is a special bike base fitting sport and bike trips lover enthusiast needs that can be placed on bicycle handlebears.
By the way, if you don’t like this method you can still use the exclusive elastic strip to install your camera directly on your arms!
Of course, battery is included in the pack. It is a 1050 mAh battery allowing about 2 hours non-stop filming, which performance above the average. What is really important is that SOOCOO S70 battery is detachable and rechargable, so you can carry extra-batteries with you to extend recording time.
Also the camera comes with a two buttons watch remote control that transmits with the camera by radio frequences. This is a very smart designed accessory for two main reasons.
First, wearing a remote control as watch makes it much more comfortable and it is less likely to be lost than other remots.
More over, using simple radio frequences ensures that battery will use less energy power (contrary to Wi Fi).
With Remote Control you will play, stop or record just by pressing one of two dedicated buttons.
Camera & Display
