Victure AC700 Final Thoughts

"This is great."

The camera can be used while inside a waterproof case. I was worried that it could be difficult to frame the shots. Exposed well, good sharpness levels and color saturation. And the image on the Victure AC700 itself is sharp and clear. It may be even better then my other GoPro to be honest.
