    SJCAM SJ5000 reviews

    SJ5000 Plus HD Action Camera with Wi-Fi (Silver) is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from gopro go home I bought the sjcam5000+ as an alternative to a gopro and was looking for something less expensive. I wanted something to use while driving and was easy to use for video recording/time lapse. This thing is packed with features including a built in screen. 720p 120fps. 1080p 60fps. Mini hdmi, mini usb. And WiFi. Comes with a bunch of mounts and a weatherproof case. The one issue I have is the menu button. You have to cycle through video, stills, video thumbnails, still thumbnails and then menu. And cycle through them to go back to what you want to use. Instead of a simple dedicated menu button on its own. Everything else is straight forward.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely not a GoPro, but don't let that stop you! Owning a GoPro Hero 3 Black, for a project I needed a second setup for time lapse picture taking. If you don't need video above 1080p, then this would be an excellent alternative. The video results are solid, with a true 16M sensor, the photos are coming out better (IMO) than the Hero3's which is only 12M. Using the same hardware (other than underwater and frame cases) as any GoPro, it is able to fit into your usage and workflow easily. Perfectly priced for what it provides, this should definitely be one to consider.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Camera I I am an owner of: sj4000, sj5000, sj5000+. I can say that I was very satisfied with sj4000. BUT, when I started use sj5000+ I saw a great difference, This camera is amazing!!! The colours are great!!! even the night vids are amazing.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, but not perfect, for the price it's great I purchased this camera due to my student budget. Having studied side by side comparisons with the GoPro Hero 3 & 4, I was convinced and didn't mind the drawbacks. My Use: -Underwater -First Person Narrative with Headmount -Dash Cam -Timelapse -Weather resistant camera for under the rain shooting -Nature trips And the way I'm rigging it is with a plugged power bank to get the most out of it. Go Pro accessories are NOT compatible for the base. They're too thick and may break the SJ's connectors. But most attachable accessories and filters are. Generic action cam accessories will work just fine, and they're cheaper. For more than 20 minutes, the camera seems to shut off. Which I figure might be from the temperature as well as the sd card's capacity. The lens distortion is much wider than the GoPro, but some tweaking in premiere or after effects can take care of it. The raw video output from the camera is actually very good and sharp. With the right White Balance, the colors also are vibrant and the shadows have some good grays and color, so it's easier to manipulate color correction later. Lowlights have some noise, specially at a higher ISO and Auto. The pictures, I gotta say, come out a LOT nice than the videos, much sharper and vibrant. Videos at 1080p 30fps have some motion blur on very rapid movements. Such as the ones I make when using the head mount. My head movements cause way too much motion blur between frames. The audio is most of these cameras, specially with the housing on, is terrible. And the SJCam is no exception. The lack of an audio jack as well requires for external audio capture, if you want to use any kind of audio at all, as the one captured on camera is useless. The Wifi handles somewhat. I haven't tried id on longer shoots, but my experience with most other wireless devices is that wifi itself is very unstable. This camera is highly customizable, and for the price, once the warranty wears off, very hackeable, making it an excellent DIY project to make it into a really cool resource. Some of the most negative points about this camera, is how picky it is with MicroSD's. Im using SanDisk 32gb Extreme. It won't take anything higher than that. Again, for the price, it comes with a whole bunch of extra accessories without the added cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grest camera - SJCAM 5000 I've owed a couple Go Pros and truly feel thE SJCAM 5000 is well worth the cost and in some ways out performs a Go Pro. The video is awesome and easy to use. I use mine for hunting and biking. The sound is good, but needs an upgrade. The battery life is great. I don't see why anyone would want to pay the cost of a Go Pro when the SJCAM series cameras are just as good. We'll done!!!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great specs, poor build Do not buy. I wish i had not. I spent 145$ to buy new sjcam5000+ elite. On first use while setting datetime and other settings, the menu arrows keys sank in. The LCD is not touch screen so without menu arrow keys, this camera is useless. I have not used the camera not even once yet. I have contacted sjcamhd to see if they can replace or refund. Overall a great disappointment to see premiere components such as sony processor and great lens, packed in cheap fragile plastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality for the price! Amazing video and picture quality for the price. The built in LCD display is a big bonus. If you're thinking about getting a gopro, consider this alternative and save lots of $$$.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pay for what you get i love low price but it really to work? Definitely no this product is just all about copying from gopro think about it. The quality of image is not the same with gopro But u still pay $ you can get a gopro 3 with little more money. Many people said that same quality and less money. But it that last long. I dont think they will last long. I read review and i bought it. But lucky i have the best customer service at bh photo. I return it after 2 days used. I dont say bad product i just want to say youpay for whatyou get. This is no way compare to gopro hero 4 or 3+ Thank for reading my review.
