SJCAM SJ4000 Reviews

Great product

It works perfectly. Very useful for kayaking in NYC.

Low quality, choppy capture, low refresh rate

By Terisa

It might as well be 180P or more accurately, VHS quality picture. The refresh rate is extremely low for an action cam. It could never capture enough frames to interpret any form of action whatsoever. The picture stills are also of low quality. The processor is so slow that video capture is choppy at best. There are chunks of freeze frame in every attempt to capture. I know, it's a cheap camera, so what could I expect? Well, I expected more than what we used to get on those old first gen Flip knock offs. Yeah, it's that bad. The same quality we used to get from a generic non HD pocket camcorder from 15 years ago. I want to be nice, but I also want to be totally honest.

Great value for the money

Really impressed at what you get for the price. Out of the box it comes with so much. It took me a while to figure out how to use the myriad of different mounting accessories

Works great underwater & everywhere else

I have been filming swim meets for many years, and use this for my underwater shots. The video quality is great, and equals or surpasses my $400 Go Pro. I also give this to the students in the stands at sporting events to pass around and film what they choose. I get some great footage doing that, and the video quality is excellent. So, I bought another one and am using both. Great little cam, especially at this price. The underwater footage is amazing.

Great cam for the price.

I have used one of these for several years filming swimming meets underwater footage. Great picture quality and good sound even in the enclosed case. So I bought another one just because I like it so much. Also had a Go Pro Black priced at $400 and this just as good as the Go Pro. So I sold the Go Pro and have been using the sj 4000 ever since. Exceptional camera, especially at this price. Totally recommended.

Good as of Better than GoPro

I checked out a lot of reviews. I found there were more pros than cons. When I received it, I was really very easy to figure out especially when going back to some of the review and I am technically challenged. I bought it for a dash came in case of a front end accident and am thinking about get on to point to the rear for rear end accident. I went through the menu, set it on dash came and plugged it into the UBS. It always starts with the vehicle is turned on. Every thing matches up with my old GoPro camera attachment. Great camera for the money for my needs.

Great video and dash cam for the price.

This is my second camera. The first one I have used for years as a dash cam with zero problems.

Surprisingly very good

For its price, you get the best value for your money. It does not have those bells and whistles but just turn it on and go. When you get home, you will find that you got the images that you need.

does this camera fit the Zenmuse H3 3D dji Gimbal ?
Asked by: Anonymous
While similar in size the SJ4000 is not recommended for that gimbal as the cover lock cannot secure the camera.

Two questions. 1. In Camera mode, is the 5-digit number shown in the lower left corner the remaining space available on the memory card? If yes, then 2. After taking a few photos and recording some videos of less than 1 minute each, I re-formatted the 32GB MicroSDHC memory card (deleted the entire contents). When I checked Camera mode afterwards, it indicated only 19.578GB remaining. Why isn't there about 32GB available on the card?
Asked by: Joe F.
No card after formatting will show as much space as the card's stated size. This basic computer engineering and has to do with how files are created and controlled. However, losing a 1/3 of capacity is wrong. I am guessing that you may have some protected files still on the card. If not, then try with another card.

The accessories which comes with this camera does not have a cold shoe adapter. Maybe you could try Ulanzi Universal Cold Shoe Mount for GoPro BH #ULUCSMGP • MFR #2123
