A coin rotary knob is provided at the rotating shaft interface, a rotating shaft is provided on the right side of the screen, and the screen is removably connected to the main body via the rotating shaft.

[0005] Further, an operation button is provided on an upper side of the screen, the indicator light and a charging socket are provided on a left side of the screen.

[0006] Further, the coin rotary knob is a suction lid of which outer ring is bright, and an inner ring thereof has a frosted surface, the SD card slot and the USB interface are provided with a silicone cover.

[0007] Further, a shell of the lens, each buttons and the rotating shaft are provided by two-shot injection molding, an external thereof comprises flexible silicone or plastic and an internal thereof comprises hard silicone or plastic, wherein a chamfer edge of the shell of the lens and a graphic slot of the each buttons are provided as bright surfaces.

[0008] Further, each surfaces of the main body and the screen is configured as an aluminum frosted surface.

[0009] Further, the screen is equipped with an automatic battery cell.

[0010] Further, the metallic elastic piece under the strong magnet is also provided with a power supply module to supply electrical power for the main body.

[0011] Compared to prior art, the present disclosure has the following beneficial effects: when the FANCAM mini action camera with rotating shaft of the present disclosure is in use, the screen and the main body are detachably connected to each other by the rotating shaft. When the coin rotary knob of the rotating shaft interface on the main body is turned on, the screen can be connected to the main body, and can rotate freely in either direction to change the angle, which can achieve a view observing the contents shot by the camera from different angles. The strong magnet can attract metal devices and be fixed conveniently, and can connect to the external power source. The metallic elastic piece under the strong magnet can be used for supplying electrical power for the main body with the external power supply module, the battery cell of the screen can supply electrical power for itself and also for the main body. A circular microphone port can also serve as a ventilation opening, which is practical and convenient. The present disclosure has the advantages of small size, beautiful appearance, good hand feeling and powerful functions.
