Powpro PowX AMK6000S Reviews: What do travelers think of this camera?
Two good signs for the PowPro camera are that it has all 4/5 star reviews, and the majority of their reviews are from verified purchases. Users seem very happy with the quality of the camera including the resolution and ease of use. Many have posted videos so you can see the camera quality in action. One con mentioned was the battery door which felt flimsy and may eventually break with heavy use. And one user mentioned that there was no battery life indicator showing that the battery was fully charged.
About Powpro the brand
I could not find any information about the Powpro brand, not the be confused with LED lighting system rental house with the same name. It appears as if all of their cameras are sold on Amazon, eBay, or other marketplaces. But don't let that dissuade you, however, as the camera has great reviews and of course is backed by Amazon's customer friendly return policy.
