"This is a great combo."

It also has a bigger battery than the other cameras I've tried. I will be taking this to my trip to the Philippines. This is a very well-made little camera. I tried an 128G SD card and it worked. And it’s not so much the video quality, but rather the size.

ULANZI V2 Case Final Thoughts

"We love this camera!"

You can shoot your videos and frame them later. It's surprising how well it produces results electronically. There is no need for me to buy extra batteries. Great price, best quality and as tough as nails. Cannot tell the difference from the two that came with it.
