I rather favored the VanTop Moment 3 action camera when I seemed at it in 2018. It was a wonderful, easy to use, low-value camera with a total host of accessories. I was interested to see how the VanTop Moment 6S compared.

The box is packed with accessories. There is a watertight housing, one extensive and two shorter connectors, a 360-degree adaptor, a two.4GHz distant manage, a tripod mount adapter, a bicycle mount, rubber plug, USB-C cable, two batteries, and a cleaning cloth.

There is also a watertight circumstance contact rear doorway, a microphone, a helmet correcting, helmet mounts, a J-hook buckle, and two adhesive pads. You do require to buy a micro SD card (up to 128GB) to go into the camera.
