MGCOOL Explorer Pro Integrated Wi-Fi Module Exposed [Teardown Video]

MGCOOL Explorer Pro

MGCOOL recently released MGCOOL Explorer Pro action camera with Sharkeye lens including the capability to capture 4K videos at 30 fps. In a significant development, the product team has released a teardown video, which not only exposes the internals of the camera but also compares with another 4K action camera.

If you look at the teardown video, you will know that the traditional 4K action camera includes RF antenna. However, the MGCOOL Explorer Pro provides an integrated wireless Wi-Fi module, which helps you to experience stable Wi-Fi connectivity and data transmission. You need not have to worry about the loss of connectivity due to Wi-Fi module.

If you watch the video, you will be able to visualize the real difference and structure of the sharkeye lens (Explorer Pro) and the normal fisheye lens included with the traditional 4K camera.

The highlight of the MGCOOL Explorer Pro is the addition of a Sharkeye lens, which provides enhanced light transmission paired with distortion correction and improved color revivification. The video demonstrates the internal circuit of both cameras in a first-ever teardown exercise by an action camera manufacturer.

MGCOOL Explorer Pro is equipped with an antioxidant interface, which is not only durable but also antirust. Moreover, the camera is integrated with a heat insulation film, which will automatically block the heat generated by the internal circuit. The video clearly shows both sides of the film. MGCOOL has designed the PCB with mounted tin to ensure trouble free functioning of each component.
