KitVision Escape HD5W Waterproof Full HD Action Camera Review


with Accessories

Im excited to have the opportunity to show you guys this incredible piece of kit.
Do you love your camera's and video, always wanted a GoPro but just cant justify it, Well now you can have that technology for less than half the price with a bag full of accessories.
Are you planning an adventure holiday, or are you off hiking, mountain biking, abseiling or do you just want to capture every part of a special moment to treasure and keep in Full HD video and 12mp photos.

If you have been watching my reviews you would have seen my action cam The Splash in December also from KitVision.

(Scroll down as well for series of 3 videos Part 1& 2 part very soon.)
I warn you guys now its a long review as Ive so much to tell you and show you as I have lots of video footage as well as photos soo...go grab a drink...some nibbly's and I'll begin.

Where's WALL-E?
Confused....see more after the break.




Packaging
I really love the packaging as I feel I'm getting an expensive, high quality gadget I can see it its full glory and the box has all the basic information for me to want to rip it open and start using it.
A plastic transparent packaging with a cardboard box and the action cam screwed firmly to the lid holding the whole thing securely for any delivery.


 Inside you get your gorgeous Waterproof Full HD Action camera attached to the cardboard box using its own tripod mount.

But thats not all, you also get a full 17 piece kit...including the Waterproof case and the Escape.
  • Bicycle Mount
  • Helmet mount
  • Mount connector clip
  • Curved adhesive mount
  • Flat adhesive mount
  • 2x3M adhesive pads
  • Action cam to 1/4 inch tripod screw adapter
  • Action cam to 1/4 inch tripod thread adapter
  • Tripod adapters
  • Mount adapter
  • 90 degree adapter
  • Vented helmet mount straps
  • 2x Velcro straps
  • Waterproof case to 60m
  • User manual
  • USB cable
  • Safety cable 
  • Escape camera


Mounts and Adaptors
I cannot stress how excited I was to find all these mounts and adapters as with another...er...well named action cam...you have to buy most of it separately costing you a small fortune ontop of the camera. If you guys are anything like me you don't know what mount you need till you need it; but with the Escape you can juggle and build your own mount from what they have given you in the box.

 The straps are made from nylon webbing that mountain climbers use so your cam seriously isn't going anywhere once strapped in place. You then have a back up of a sticky underneath the mount of choice. The 3M stickers are known for being super strong.


The bicycle mount and indeed all the mounts and adapter are made of super strong black ABS plastic and have been well designed to adapt to whatever you may need. Along with stainless steel nuts and bolts.

You can see here how simple it is to pop it on your bike.  Plus you can add an extra adapter to make it swivel etc.
You could use this same mounting on a car, jeep anything which has a pole or crossbar. 
Even a bird feeding station...see later on...!

This image shows how to make the tilt mount with the attachments provided. I love how clever the designers have been with these.

 You then have this mount made from the 2 adaptors shown above. You have the choice whether to add the straps or a sticky pad.
You can then add the 2 long straps to secure it onto a helmet or skateboard etc.

Looks super cool on a selfie stick too.


Sexy isn't it?
Its all ready to join you on your adventures.

Description
Well guys and gals, this is one incredible piece of kit. The perfect action cam for those of you with a mad hectic life and don't want to miss a second, or someone into extreme sports who wants to capture what they do to show their friends or to capture that special holiday or occasion.

 Front of the Escape.
The KitVision Escape look round
When you take out the Escape it really is so very dinky at ONLY
 6cm x 3cm (over the lens area) x 2.5cm in size. I knew it was small but when you take it out the case its tiny!
It has an excellent quality feel, substantial in weight for its size and the outer sides are made of the soft black rubberized coat. So you can grip it even with damp cold fingers. However its that type of coat that marks easily which is a slight peeve of mine. 
It has a front mode button which allows you to scroll through the settings too. The wifi symbol shows clearly what this little cam has compared to some others.
The camera lens itself is only 2.2cm in diameter and protrudes out slightly from the camera by approx 0.5cm.

 Back of the Escape
The back has a complete clear cover making it easy to clean but the actual LCD screen is smaller than the Splash's which is a shame as there is plenty of space.
It measures 3.2cm x 2.4cm; The Splashes screen is 3.8cm x 3.2cm, but saying that it is extremely bright and clear and is still easy to see.
Down the side you can see 2 small LEDs the top shows red when charging and the one beneath it shows blue so you know when its trying to find the wifi signal.

Ontop of the Escape is the rubberized shutter button with a red ring on; next to that is a green LED which flashes when its recording.

 Underneath the Escape is the battery compartment which allows you to replace the battery or buy a few spares if you are going hiking and know your not going to be near a leccy supply to charge it.

 On one side you have your HDMI port, charging port and SD card slot for upto 32gb SD cards.

On the other side you have your wifi sender button which also doubles as up and down scrolling settings buttons. These are both extremely responsive and good quality.
If you look closely you can also see the built in microphone holes.


Not forgetting the waterproof case which is excellent quality. 

 
I cannot stress enough how good quality this case is. 
Inside there are moulded side struts that hold the camera firmly and securely getting no jiggle at all. Perfect during any energetic activity.

 Front of the case.
The front of the case has a reinforced area over the lens to add real protection, this cam is for serious hobbyist and this screen isn't going to scratch or crack without a real fight.

I particularly love the mega secure top latch, its so secure you have to fiddle a little to get it open, it has a locking slider to open and close. Despite being completely made of plastic its super strong and Ive given this some real use and hasn't in any way weakened or broken or bent.


Use
I just couldn't wait to start using this adorable little cam so I plugged it in straight away. The instructions don't say anywhere for how long to charge it for, so I left it till the led went off which was approx 4 hours later so I left it for an extra 2 just to make sure as you know Im picky on first battery charges.
Note: the instructions say its a blue indicator while charging, I just wanted to show you...its red!
It turns off when fully charged, I love it when gadgets do that, Ive noticed more and more doing this...yay...KitVision.

Next pop in your SD card into the SD slot and away you go...but your best to just scroll through the settings first to set up your preferences and it dosent hurt to format the card in the unit itself.  
*For those of you that struggle with settings my Part 1 video has a guide through every step with explanations of what they mean.

To turn on press and hold the front mode button for 5 seconds, the same to turn off.

Video Footage
I have 3 videos to show you.

Part 1 Unboxing and look around and a complete settings overview with explanations.

Part 2 is at this moment 415 minutes till publishing and Part 3 will be coming straight after.
YouTube uploading is taking     for-evvvvver !

Part 2 Is all about the amazing remote viewing with some fun footage samples.

Part 3 is some actual video samples to show you guys how good the quality is, you can see for yourself rather than me rambling on. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them.


Video Part 1


I will just mention to you briefly the settings as my main video Part 1 shows it much better. As soon as you turn on your Escape it takes you straight into video mode, so you can start recording instantly.

By pressing the front MODE button it takes you to the main screen for 6 main options.
  1. Video for recording video.
  2. Photo for photos.
  3. Burst Takes series of 3/5/10 images for sports etc.
  4. Time Lapse Takes a photos at a chosen intervals until deactivated.
  5. Playback views all captured files on the LCD screen without downloading.
  6. Settings for changing all the cams settings.
The wifi side button and the button beneath it allow you to scroll up and down through them; so easy peasy. Its easy to set up and easy to alter on the fly too.

 The screen is bright but it is small; but then your not spending alot of time looking at the back screen, its only for settings.


Audio
The audio is good as you will see in part 3 of my video series...coming soon! But inside the case it gets quite muffled so if you want good sound too, you need to remove the case.


Footage

So Ill start with what we did to get footage. First of all we decided to take it with us on a trip to the Sealife centre miles away from us. Ive wanted to go for years so what better time when I needed to test out our new cam.

So what settings did I use...well I have to say I simply set anything I could on Auto and that was it. I carried it in my hand like a normal camera rather than fixing it to my hat or jacket as I wanted to see how stable it was as I do have a problem with shakey hands...not the best for a photographer so I knew there maybe a problem with the person holding the cam...er...me.
BUT...I was pleased to find as you can see from my video its NOT shakey at all...OMG Im so pleased...thank you KitVision!

Next quality of video...well what do you guys think...I personally think its gooorgeous. The video is crisp and clear and the colours are rich and well saturated. There isn't a setting for saturation but I love that its automatically so bright and colourful.

I found it easy to switch between video and camera; something important when on day trips as you want a mix of both and don't want to miss anything while having to fiddle with camera settings...we've all been there.

The Sealife center is filled with massive aquariums which of course is set in darkness except the light from within the glass tanks. So the KitVision Escape is dealing with low light, movement and glass. These 3 things are what most cameras struggle with.
We asked if we could put the cam in some of the aquariums for special footage but we were not allowed as it could add human bacteria into the aquarium.


 We were both surprised at how stunning the footage was once we got home and uploaded it on the system.

 It took my breath away with how gorgeous the video footage was and I cant wait to just show you rather than waffle on. Take my word for it for now its stunning.

 Colours well saturated, images and video bright and crisp. Audio clear.


For the next bit of footage we decided to attach it to our jeep, and do a little off-roading for the sake of science of course.


We did actually need an extra clamp just to make sure it was secure as the roof has an odd shaped edge...but it worked beautifully as you will see in the Footage video coming soon.




Remote Viewing
First of all this needs to be a separate post in itself as I have to so much to show you; but Ill try and cram the main details in this post.
When I first got this little cam I assumed it wasn't going to be much better than the Splash which was already fantastic and I even had doubts of what made this one almost double the price...well where to start...wifi..and...remote viewing...oh my goodness wow Im so excited with this setting. I don't have this on any other action cam I own. I have separate units which do this but not an all in one.



So what is remote viewing?
First of all you simply download an app from Google Play or itunes called iSmart DV this clever little app allows you to place your cam somewhere else and you view what the cam is seeing in another place.

Soo what on earth would you need remote viewing for...loads of reasons;
Dashcam, roofcam, undercar cam, birdtable cam, dog cam and thats just for starters. But most importantly you can use it for security as long as it is within your own wifi and have enough battery power.
There are so many ways to use just the remote viewing alone;
  • Think of a baby cam.
  • Keeping a close eye on the kids upstairs in their bedroom.
  • Putting it in the garden to watch the kids while having a quiet cuppa indoors.
  • Watching a disabled child or someone ill in be.
  • Dashcam.
  • Roofcam.
  • Birdtable Cam.
  • Dog Cam.
  • Racing car Cam.
  • Keep an eye out for the postman Cam.
  • A Cam Cam. Ok I made the last one up but you can see that I like it.
Let me know when you think of some more ideas Im really interested. But for me you know I love my wildlife so that was my first thought.

Pairing with Wifi
First of all you need to pair your Escape to your device you wish to be viewing from; this is identical to Bluetooth pairing those of you that have done that before.


 Both my S4 and my Nexus 10 found the wifi and the Escape quickly and easily.

I did however have a few teething problems getting it to stay paired with wifi, it seemed to have a time limit of approx 15-20 minutes before it crashed, but apparently this seems to be from the app itself which I will hope they will add updates soon.
Despite this I got some fantastic footage and Im in love with this aspect of the Escape.

I set the Escape up in 3 different positions around my garden and on my bird feeder.
  • Cam over seed tray.
  • Cam opposite feeder in the bushes.
  • Cam opposite the complete feeding station.

 This was my 1st position and I did get some great birdy action from a distance and it did allow the birds to get used to the tripod infront of their "restaurant".

(Part 3 video coming soon).
 You can see here the live viewing on the app on my S4; its so clear too.

Area 2 showed up really well on screen as it was shaded from the sun.


The best position was directly over the seed tray and wow it captured my shyest bird and his female.

 This was some Woodpecker footage I was viewing live on my phone sitting in my lounge drinking a cuppa. I would never have seen these guys otherwise as they are sooo shy.
The live footage is bright, colourful and sharp as watching TV.



Here you can see a screen shot of the app and live view on both my S4 and my Nexus 10, the screen is identical to viewing on a phone or tablet; but of course its so much more fun on a larger screen, so I always use my tablet now.

Note: you cant view 2 devices at once, its 1 at a time.

You have complete control of the cam and can click record video at anytime or snap a pik with the record button at the bottom. This records directly onto the SD card on the Escape; not on your device your viewing from.You can see the icons at the bottom show how easy it is to switch from video to camera at a touch, it also shows the battery of the Escape NOT your device this is genius. 

You can also view the images or video you have just taken on your device from the Escape while they are connected...Im in love!

Plus the app has a few settings too; but ISO, movie size or exposure etc has to be done in the camera before setting it up.

 One of the photos taken from the Escape.
 My Lesser spotted Woodpeckers were frantically flying too and fro feeding their chick..(which I haven't seen yet.) I didn't even know this little fella had a mate, let alone a chick so this cam opened my eyes to whats in my garden. Sorry you have to be a birdy person to understand my excitement.
 I have to say I was blown away with such amazing footage and the quality too was incredible, the video is bright, crisp and sharp whether recording normally or remote viewing.

You do have to stay within your wifi range to keep connection and I found it started to crash as I walked away at around 30 feet and of course you have to be aware of thick walls and other wifi devices (we have quite a lot) that could interfere with the cam. You simply have to play around to find whats right for you.



Just a bit of geeky fun
Well if having a Wall-E Cam makes me seem a bit of a Geek, then Geek me up. You guys may know how much I love my robot Walle's; well it just had to be done as specially as we had a few of the stickies in the accessory kit. Like this review isn't long enough already but this was fun.

 Plus to show you guys this amazing little Escape can stick to almost anything even Walle's head.

 Just to show you what Wall-E is seeing on Wall-E cam, despite being slightly wonky.

 We then used remote viewing to get some fun video of annoying the hound...just a little bit...

As you can see he was not impressed at all at being followed around the garden by a foot high robot. You can see here he's trying his ignoring technique he uses on me regularly...I wonder why?

Video Part 2
I just want you to see just how much fun this setting alone is.

KitVision Escape Photos

Photos
I was pleased with the images the Escape took at the Sealife Center considering it was without any flash or daylight. I have not altered these in any shape or form they are as they came out the camera. Not bad eh!
It has the settings of a high-end camera being 12 million pixels with 10 fps on fast shot mode.
The colours are well saturated and it managed to capture movement too without any flash or upping the ISO and through glass...Im impressed.

A few more I took and again good colour and quality.


Recording video.
(Staring the KitSound Swing)
Opinion
I LOVE my KitVision Escape I have the KitVision Splash which is also amazing but this does alot more and thats shown in the price. Im blown away yes I said it again its a fantastic, fun little camera.
Its extremely well built and feels substantial in weight and looks more expensive than it is. Plus it looks so damn sexy too.

The quality of the video is gorgeous; its crisp and well saturated and the audio is just as good. Its also easy to set up and alter on the fly too.
I used the cam in extremely low light and through glass at the Sealife centre and the footage is just gorgeous; it was as if it were almost daylight and the colours were beautiful of the fish.

For me what stands out is the wifi Remote viewing...oh my goodness I cant stop using this, if its watching my many wild bird feeding stations around the cottage or just watching our elderly dog downstairs when Im upstairs to check he is ok...dog cam....its definitely the most favorite part to owning this camera.

Its small and light enough to fit easily into most handbags and most jacket pockets for the guys. I personally have got a generic case to keep all the mount attachments and cam together. Another great tick for this cam is the battery life; we spent 2 hours at the sealife centre and I still had charge left after videoing on and off most the time.
*Note; Remote viewing I have found doesn't use as much battery as the LCD screen switches off, but its still recording inside. 

My only niggle is that even though it has wifi you cant upload to your PC or to social media despite having wifi; you still have to take the card out which seems strange in this day and age; but its no problem to me.

I have to say too about how great the image stabilization is for those of you like me who may have shakey hands or that do high energy sports like mountain biking or skate boarding doing jumps etc. I was shocked at how stable my Sealife centre footage was considering it was handheld and moving all the time; yet it showed it was fluid and smooth when moving...brilliant!

To sum up its amazing quality, great design and you get a bag full of accessories, buy a card, charge it up and your ready to go.

*I will be uploading PART 2 " Remote Viewing" and PART 3 "Video footage"  in the next few days. 

I have been rushing so much to just get this up for you guys, I haven't finished editing all my video footage as Ive got miles of it to go through and I hope you will like it when Ive finally posted both videos.

Pro's
  • Full HD Video
  • 12 million pixels

  2. Hello I just want ask can I use electricity to charge it or just my laptop and if it's possible to buy an electricity adaptor or I can use my mobile charger to charge it

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Mina thanks for popping by. Yes you can use electricity to charge it but you need a USB plug adapter.
      For example one of these, look around for good prices they are not expensive.
      http://www.amazon.co.uk/HL%C2%AEWHITE-Adapter-BLACKBERRY-ERICSSON-APPROVED/dp/B00C66XJQI/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1438433766&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=usb+plugadapter

      You can also use your laptop; anything with USB port or that uses a USB cable. Using your mobile phone charger should be ok if its 5V as the Escape is 4.2 just check the volatge on your charger it should say.
      I just use a wall plug with USB or my main PC to charge it and this is perfect.
      I hope this has helped let me know if you have anymore questions.

  5. I wondered if you could tell me which is better out of the Kitvision Escape HD5 & Kitvision Splash please?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Karen this is quite a question as they are quite different cameras.
      If you can afford it go for the Escape as it does far more. It has wifi for the remote viewing, it fits Gopro attachments. The video and photos are slightly better quality too.
      However the Splash is more affordable and has a fun edge with its bright colours, the kids will love these.
      I can go out without worrying too much too, weve tied it under jeeps etc.
      I love both of them but its a personal choice and what you will want them for, which will help decide which one.
      Hope this helps, let me know if you have anymore questions.

  7. Hi my hd5 only has one USB port and no wifi! Can you tell me how to delete files as there's no delete in the settings

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Karen yes all Escapes only have 1 USB port, the other is the HDMI.There are 2 different versions of the Escape, the HD5 and HD5W.
      If you have HD5 this is the version without wifi. My review is for the HD5W.
      I can explain where my delete image is they should be similar, I would have thought.
      The easy way to delete the images from the card is via your PC.
      But to delete from Escape;
      1. Press the mode button at the front to bring up the settings, you will see video, photo etc.
      2. Then using your up and down buttons on the side scroll down to the bottom to 'settings' then...
      3. Press the shutter button ontop, this takes you into another section.
      4. Then scroll down and the delete file will be here.
      I hope this makes sense and thanks for popping by.
      Just ask if you have anymore questions.

    How do you upload the footage onto a laptop? I have a MacBook Pro and would like to know how to upload it onto that.

    1. Hi,
      You will be uploading your images via the Micro SD card; probably through a card reader which you can buy cheaply from most places.
      The fact it has wifi is for the remote viewing part of the camera, you cannot upload your images via its wifi, like I thought originally.
      Hope this helps and just ask if you have anymore questions.

  9. Hey
    I just wanted to thank you for this amazingly detailed review. You helped me pick out which action camera to buy, and I have just ordered this one. I'm going on a lot of vacations this year, so I hope to make some good videoes with this camera, and for someone who is still a student the price is really good.
    Thank you :)

    1. Hi Amanda Thank you so much for your kind words about this review, I had so much fun making the 3 videos on this.
      Im also pleased you chose this, as it really is a fantastic camera, Im still using mine alot. The remote viewing is so much fun to use.
      I think this will be perfect for your skiing holidays and more and yes I agree the price is just brilliant.
      One thing when buying your Escape HD wifi do check you choose the right version as one is the very basic without remote viewing and the other is the one Ive reviewed above with (wifi) everything on.
      I feel you will get more from this version than the basic, but its easy to get them confused when buying. But then if your not really going to use wifi - remote viewing then you could save some pennies.
      Please let me know how you get on, I hope you love it as much as i do.
      Thanks again for popping by :-)

    1. Hi Megan thanks so much for your kind words we had so much fun making these videos and Im still using it now, its a fab cam.
      There isn't an extra slot for an external microphone, you do have a micro USB, but I dont think it can be used as an extra USB port as its the charging port. I dont have a microphone to try.
      You could ask customer services to be sure.
      Sorry I cant help you more.

  12. Hi! I'm considering buying a KitVision Escape camera, however I've been thinking about which one I should buy, and I can't find any comparison reviews about the HD5 (cheaper) and HD5W. Do you know anything about the differences, mostly video/picture quality? I just want a comparably cheap action camera which still does the job and has nice quality, but I'm worried the HD5 has bad quality compared to the HD5W, but at the same time I don't need the wifi with HD5W which is kind of the point of the camera. Otherwise, a great review and hope you can answer my question, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Horseen, yes there are several differences; the HD 5 is 720p which is still fairly good, but the HD5W (my review) is 1080p, so you get a slightly higher resolution.
      However there is a big difference in photo resolution the HD 5 is only 5 million pixels for photos, the HD5W is 12 million pixels.
      I personally would go for the HD5W for the extra quality photos and higher resolution as its only approx £4 more on Amazon.
      Hope this helps a bit, let me know if you have anymore questions. Goodluck.

    2. Just a suggestion have you thought of the Kitvision Splash (video review here)
      http://www.gadgetgirlreviews.com/2014/12/the-kitvision-splash-action-cam-review.html
      Its got 1080p and 12 mill pixel photos and approx £28 Amazon Uk. Good value and we still use ours as its fab quality.

    1. Hi Jasmine no it doesnt take piks at the sametime the video is recording. It will stop recording if you press the button to take a pik. Thats so exciting and you certainly need a special camera to record a special event.
      Goodluck and let me know when you find a camera to do both.

    Great review, was looking at the Kaiser Bass X90 until I read this. All the extras make it so much more value for money. Thanks for the tips & tricks. Cant wait to get out & try it. Gonna be perfect for my holidays. BP
