I received few comments asking me to review and write about the SJCAM SJ4000 (Amazon link) action camera. This camera is very popular worldwide. Many reviews were written about it online. Now, it’s my turn to test it out :
I surly can’t say that the SJCAM SJ4000 action camera records videos as well as much more expensive cameras like GoPro. But still – you get
great value for your money. The video quality is very good. If you need an action camera that you can use from time to time – this one is perfect for you. For professional uses, I would say that cameras like GoPro 4 are better. As I mentioned, the SJCAM SJ4000 camera is very popular worldwide. One of the reasons to that is it’s video quality. It’s not disappointing for sure.
There are many other similar action cameras like GeekPro 3.0 .I recommend checking some of them out as well. Each one has it’s unique features and pros – maybe a different camera will fit your needs better.
The 900mAh battery this camera comes with lasts about 70 minutes (Full HD recording). That’s pretty average – so no problems with that. Spare batteries (and chargers) can be bought online. I always recommend having at least 2 batteries. That’s useful when you go on a vacation and want to record many videos every day.
Since this action camera has a built-in WIFI – you can easily connect your smartphone to it .There are many Androdi + iOS apps that will do that for you .One of my favorite one is iSmart DV. It’s really easy to use. Not all cheap action cameras come have WIFI. Some people find the WIFI functions very useful. I personally don’t use it much .
Old Review – Previous Version :
The SJCAM SJ4000 action camera is very popular worldwide. One of the reasons for that is it’s price and it’s video quality. While a GoPro costs a lot of money , the SJCAM SJ4000 is reasonably priced. It comes with diffrerent clips, mounts and cases – pretty much everything you need to start receding videos immediately. The video quality is very good. This action camera records in FULL HD – so that’s great. You can go to Youtube and you’ll find there hundreds of videos captured with SJ4000. You will see for yourself that the quality is very good. Take a look at this test video . The video looks amazing, even underwater. This camera is waterproof – so if you dive or would like to records videos while swimming – it will be perfect for you.
I think the SJCAM SJ4000 action cmaera has anything you need. Why spend so much money on expensive action cameras when you can buy one like this for so cheap. I’m not saying this camera is better than a GoPro – but for most people, it’s more than good enough.
