LeEco jumps into the action camera game with the Liveman C1

The Liveman C1 is an action camera which marks LeEco's entrance into the highly populated action camera market.


LeEco announced a new product yesterday and it is first for the Chinese company. The Liveman C1 is an action camera which marks the company's entrance into the highly populated action camera market. Xiaomi backed Yi, is already competing against GoPro and it seems like LeEco doesn't want to be left behind.

The Liveman C1 can shoot 4K videos which puts it at par with GoPro and Xiaomi's new Yi 4K+. However, it cannot shoot UHD videos at 60 fps, something which the Xiaomi camera is capable of.

Rest of the features include a 16MP sensor, a 140-degree wide angle lens, a G-sensor which can automatically start recording when it detects any kind of movement. It comes with built in Wi-Fi, a microSD card slot for storage expansion and a 1.8-inch TFT touchscreen display.

The camera will come bundled with a waterproof case that allows one to shoot up to 40m underwater, two self adhesive mounts, some extensions and of course a USB charging cable.

The Liveman C1 is expected to go on sale before Chinese New Year which is 28 January. We haven't got a confirmation on the pricing but it should be closer to what Xiaomi is offering and less than the GoPro lineup.
