    SJCAM SJ5000 reviews

    SJ5000 Plus HD Action Camera with Wi-Fi (Silver) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big Bang for the Buck for a Tiny Camera I originally bought the Xiaomi Yi to attach to a quadcopter in order to get some aerial images. However, it gave me images which appeared to have been over processed with details looking more like an oil painting than a photo. I quickly returned that camera and got the SJCAM 5000+ which uses the same DSP as the Xiaomi Yi. I made the right decision. So far, I'm ecstatic about this camera. Unfortunately, I have yet to put it airborne because of the weather. However, the photos I've taken on the ground have been superb and I'm inclined to play around with this baby more than I thought I would. I was concerned that the sport case would reduce the clarity of the shots but I haven't found that to be true. I like that you have some manual control over some aspects of the image such as WB, ISO, Sharpness and EV. I also appreciate the auto shoot mode. Since my quadcopter is not one of the GPS models which basically fly themselves, I have to keep a close visual lock on it. That means that I really don't have the time to look away at a screen as the wind could quickly relocate my flier. But, I can set the auto shoot mode, send it up and it'll just snap away without my involvement. Like a blind monkey with a machine gun, I'm bound to hit something. I don't have to be concerned about WiFi range either. Yay me! With the rear screen, which the Xiaomi lacked, I can check my images before I leave the area and make sure that I got, at least, one or two keepers. Each still photo file only takes up about 2.5 MB at 16MP so I got lots of room with my 32 GB micro SD card.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product and Support I purchased a sj5000 for our family vacation. I used it for a few days to get a good understanding of it. The screen went white with update. Camera was replaced in 24 hours, WOW. Vacation pictures are great.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked well for about 2 days I planned on using the camera for some time lapse videos (3d printing), filming while driving, and bicycling. But 3 days into owning it, it stopped working. Pros -- The camera had much better contrast when compared to others, and i liked the ability to do 240 FPS with it. I used the camera on a 2 hour car ride and the images looked stunning. Cons -- User interface wasn't very User Friendly, and upgrading it seemed to be more trouble than it was worth. The firmware on the camera seemed like it was sort of thrown together last minute, before i updated my screen would get horizontal lines across it, and so did the recordings. After i updated, it was fine. Then about a day later, the camera stopped working all together. It would power on, but it would not show a video feed, just a screen that said SJCAM I don't think i would buy again (i since returned it to BH and they refunded me) simply because the user interface was clunky, and it stopped working.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap and works fine Compared to a Go Pro 4, the image quality is little bit worst, but it costs 1/4 of the price, so it worth it.
