Chinese GoPro Clone The SJ4000 – Review

Since the dawn of the GoPro way back in 2004, there have always been contenders to the throne, though certainly more sparse back then. More recently the GoPro range of cameras has gone from strength to strength with the release of the HD Hero 4 and the new more budget friendly GoPro Hero

One thing they have rarely been is cheap, and that is where the multitude of clone cameras come in to the mix. As you can expect originating from the Far East they are generally far cheaper than the branded option whilst normally offering a similar level of features.

Today I am looking at one such device; the SJ4000 (SJCAM) which looks to offer a cheap alternative to the big boys.

Specifications and Features

– NTK96650+AR0330 solution
– High definition screen that displays and replays fascinating videos recorded
– Removable battery that is easy to replace and prolongs your camera’s service life
– Video recording while charging
– 12-megapixel HD wide-angle lens
– HDMI HD output
– Support storage cards up to 32GB maximum
– Multiple video recording formats: 1080P 720P WVGA
– Recorded in MOV format
– Multiple photo shooting modes: Single shot, Snapper
– Color: Black
As you can see from the specifications, it is not too shabby overall. It is able to record in 1080P30 as well as having a removable battery and a screen which allows you to easily check what the camera can see.

What’s in the box

Not content with sending just a camera, the manufacturer also includes an insane amount of mounting options, and with my particular order it included an extra battery and an AV out cable, so you are effectively covered if you run out of juice.
