Ordro 4k camcorder – Review, Unboxing
ORDRO 4K CAMCORDER - OVERVIEW
If you’re out looking for the best third-party budget camcorders, then this Ordro 4K camcorder - Ordro HDR-AC3 is the best one. It has excellent ergonomics, featuring a 3” touchscreen, detachable handle unit, and IR lamp built-in.
In terms of performance, it is a tough competitor to Zohulu/Seree camcorder because it records top-notch video content at 4k with the smoothest video quality. That too, the camcorder provides microphone inputs, so you can always add external mics whenever needed.
Go ahead and look at its other specs.
BUILD QUALITY AND HANDLING
The handy design of this camcorder makes it a great partner for your long tiresome shoots. All the buttons are rightly placed on the camera body. The camcorder measures L5.04 * H2.75 * W2.68 inches while weighing only 0.89 lb.
The camera body is made of heat-resistant materials, so you can use the camera even for continuous handheld shoots without worrying about heating issues.
This 4k camcorder from Ordro features a 3” 270-degree Rotatable LCD screen, which is touch-screen enabled.
A built-in IR lamp in this camcorder will allow you to use the video cam under dark pitch conditions where you have to crave for some light.
That too, the camera comes with an IR remote control that will help you capture infrared shots anywhere very conveniently. But make you remove the lens so that it’s doesn’t block the IR light from entering the camera.
- Built-in WiFi
- Built-in stereo mic
- Detachable handle unit
If you’re shooting in 4K all the time, it is evident that the internal camera battery drains off soon. However, I’m glad that this HDR-AC3 4K Ordro camcorder supports recording while shooting. You just need to plug in this camcorder to any portable battery bank via a USB cable. That’s it. Now you can comfortably record videos while charging at the same time.
IMAGE AND VIDEO QUALITY
The Ordro HDR-AC3 4K camcorder features an EXMOR 13MP CMOS sensor to deliver the best quality shots even in low-light. The CMOS sensor always stops unwanted stray light from disturbing the footage, which is also appreciable.
The maximum frame rate with which you can capture 4k shots is 60 fps. Now you must have understood how fast the processing speed of this camera is.
In terms of video resolution, the camera can shoot at 4K UHD (UHD 3840*2160 “DAR” 24fps), which is stunning for a camcorder of this price range.
On-the-go shooters will find the 3” interactive touch panel very useful to change the camera settings or view the preview of the footage easily. Adding to it, the display screen is made of 1,152,000 color dots. The overall color graduation of the display screen looks impressive.
It's nice to see a budget camcorder under 300$ like this Ordro HDR-AC3 to have a high-resolution display like this!!

You have reached the end of this Ordro 4k video camera review. In a nutshell, if you're on a tight budget and don't want to spend money on a professional video camera. This Ordro AC3 4K camcorder is my solid recommendation. Yes, indeed, you can't expect a professional video quality like that of a Canon XA50 or a Panasonic DVX-200. However, for the price of under 300$, it works splendidly!
