With nearly 2,700 backers from all over the world and $433K+ raised on Indiegogo so far (as of the time of writing of this article), it’s fair to say that Mokacam – the world’s smallest 4K action camera has had quite the successful crowdfunding campaign. In case you haven’t heard of Mokacam, here’s the skinny – it’s the world’s smallest 4K action camera with dimensions of 45 x 45 x 30mm and a few unique features that make it stand out from main competitors like GoPro.
The Mokacam features a rotating screen, which can also charge the camera battery and has a magnetic back allowing the camera to be attached to any metal surface without the need for any extra accessories. Additional magnetic snap-on batteries are another cool feature of the Mokacam, as they allow for hot-swapping while recording extending the running time of the camera to 4 hours in 1080p.

Here’s a quick look at a Mokacam camera prototype from about a month ago:
The magnetic batteries and built-in power, not to mention a 270 degree rotating screen are all features that a pretty cool for a small and well designed camera like the Mokacam, but when it comes to 4K, it is rather disappointing to see that it can only do 15fps in UHD, rendering it borderline unusable for serious video use. 1080p of course is a different story, but I really with they had at least 4K/24p.
The good news is that the camera is really affordable – right now you can grab an early bird special on the Mokacam for $99 and get a waterproof case with it as well. To learn more about Mokacam and pledge yours head over to their Indiegogo campaign.
