  • 270-degree Rotating Screen – Compared to other brands with only 2-inch screens, Kenuo Touch Screen IR Night Vision is a bit generous with its 4K camcorder as it comes with a 3-inch capacitive touch screen.

Conclusion 

While the product works for me, I also understand that it may not be the perfect fit for other shoppers. For instance, some buyers might have an eye for more high-end features and more customization options in their 4K camcorder which is not being offered in this product. Obviously, such buyers will find the Kenuo 4K camcorder unimpressive due to their high standards.

However, for newbies like me who is not really a professional-level photographer or videographer yet, the product is perfect. I have to say that for its price, it packs quite a punch in the features department.
