Soocoo S60 - Design and Materials
La Soocoo S60 it is characterized by a very compact and minimal design and for a weight of approx 116 grams, battery by 1050 mAh included.
Analyzing it in detail we see that:
In the front part is placed the sensor da 12 mega-pixels accompanied by a double LED Flash, from model name at the front and a "squared" weave surrounding the sensor.
In the back part the display from 1.5 inches and the navigation keys in the following order, from left to right: modality, Menu, Ok, Flash e Back and forth as well as two status LEDs, the first, red, which indicates the registration in progress and the recharge, while the second, in color green, indicates that the device is on.
Below is present hooking to which you can connect the various supports supplied.
On the upper part, however, we find one interlocking clip, orange in our sample, to open the device and access the battery compartment and the buttons power on and recording / shooting.
On the right side, finally, there is the slot microSD and the micro plug HDMI, protected by a hermetic closure, which can be opened, for example, with the help of a coin. This hermetic seal guarantees impermeability of the device in case of immersion in water and in fact the same is certified IP68. I followed a video test of the waterproofness of the Soocoo S60:
Soocoo S60 - Sensor and photo quality
La Soocoo S60 is characterized, as already said, by a sensor from 12 mega-pixel with wide angle from 170 ° which in our lyrics has proven to be very performing in all shooting circumstances, especially at night.
As happened for the Zeblaze Ishot 1, even in this case we were pleasantly impressed with the yield of the terminal in the evening, especially in dark or poorly lit environments, In which the Soocoo S60 has returned quality shots and well balanced.
The only difference from the photographic point of view compared to the Zeblaze Ishot 1, consists in the difference calibration of the white balance, more tending to the yellow on the Soocoo S60.
As regards, however, the quality of the Scatti made, let's say immediately that this device is more suitable for video shooting than for photos, which, in fact, turn out hardly focused, even in the face of one good color rendering. The software still seems to manage better, compared to the zeblaze, the shooting phases with slightly more defined images.
Some shots of the Soocoo S60:
The battery of the Soocoo S60 is a drive from 1050 mAh which allows you to record up to approx one hour / one hour and a half uninterrupted; duration that is decreasing with the use of features Wifi, some two LED Flash and the infrared bracelet.
As regards, instead, the memory of the device, we point out that it is necessary to use one microSD external, up to a maximum of 32 GBotherwise the same, due to the absence of internal storage, cannot be operational.
Soocoo S60 - WIFI and Remote Control
La Soocoo S60 It is equipped with functionality WiFi and remote control through the appropriate bracelet supplied.
Il WiFi it is implemented by exploiting the technology hotspot, so by activating the aforementioned functionality on the device, it will generate a network WiFi with SSID Soocoo. To let the smartphone communicate with the Cam we will have to download the appropriate application Soocoo from Play Store and connect to the network WiFi generated by the device.
Through the application, which differs from the application of the Zeblaze Ishot 1 for certainly more accurate graphics and greater fluidity during use, you can view in real-time what is framed by Cam and take photos and videos simply with a tap. Moreover, always from the application, we will be able to transfer the files from the microSD inserted within the Soocoo to the internal memory of our device.

Remote control is also possible via bracelet supplied characterized by two keys, one for the recording / shooting and the other for the break. The connection is via infrared on frequency of 2.4 GHz.
Soocoo S60– Software
The device is equipped with a Multilingual owner software (including the Italian language) that allows you to change various settings regarding settings e how to use.
Navigating within the menus you can change the maximum resolution of the photos (12 mega-pixel), the video recording format, date and time, setting whether to display them in the video, if splitting videos into small clips, balance and exposure adjustment options and finally i WIFI connectivity settings.
Unlike what happened on the Zeblaze Ishot 1, we did not find any problems regarding the saving date and time set on the cam. Therefore, once the battery has been switched off and / or removed, the date and time previously set will remain saved without problems.
