SJ4000 and other GoPro copies
« on: February 10, 2015, 02:36:38 PM »
Has anyone here bought and used SJ4000 and other GoPro copies? Lazada is selling some of them for under 3k and I would like to know if they are good enough to use for DIY band videography stuff (making music videos, documenting gigs, etc.). Kung sulit, why not buy several, diba? :)

I heard na olats yung mga nasa Lazada na SJ4000 copies. 12mp yung output resolution pero 5mp lang daw yung sensor. Ang labas ay grainy and less detailed than SJ4000.

I heard yung mga SJCAM na binebenta sa lazada eh mga "clones" din ng totoong SJCAM..

my officemate is using one as helmet camera, I saw his videos its all good.. day shots and night shots are pretty impressive.. kahit yung 720p settings nya is acceptable, kita pa rin yung mga plate numbers ng mga sasakyan.

ill be getting one soon.. yung may bluetooth/wifi variant.

ill post a review/feedback here pag nakuha ko na

I got the "second gen" version of the CDR King action cams, yung sobrang daming nirelease after ung SJ4000 copy nila. Bought it only because the parentals wanted something to use for their sissy rafting activity. I tested it out and it has a pretty high EV, overexposing a lot of stuff in regular lighting. It does shine as a nighttime dash/helmet cam. Not shaky like the CDR King SJ4000 copy but it does exhibit rolling shutter when the body which the camera is attached to moves too quickly (as in when you're in the rapids).

I also tried it during the last Urbandub concert. Colors are washed out as fck because of the high EV so don't even try bringing it to a concert unless you're after the "fun" audience facing footage. The sound is horrible, trebley, as if you killed the bass and mid knobs and dimed the treble of your amp. Putting on the case evens out the response, but it's just like turning down the treble knob but your bass and mids are still dead.

It only comes with three mounts, which is fine by me (strap mount (flat base where you weave a strap in), pole mount (parang clamp partng clamp arm ng drum hardware), suction windshield mount). The interface is horrible though, as it's touch based and guess what you can't do that while in the waterproof case. You're stuck to one mode (pic, video, or dash cam) and you can only start, stop, or turn on and off the unit; until you take the damn thing out of the case.

Good: great nighttime action cam, lasted up to three hours on and off, can be mounted on tripod with or without the waterproof case
Bad: too high exposure, horrible audio, can't change modes while in waterproof case

Great for: dash cams, helmet cam, bike cam, guitar cam, drum cam, scandal cam, found footage.
Not great for: concerts, actual filming.

Tried using GoPro, hiram lang maganda sya kaso for the price hindi kaya.

ill make a thorough review soon.. here's my first impression..

Pros:

- Daytime recording is good even in 720p walang distortions (eats up around 2GB of storage in around 20-30mins of recording)
- 1020p full HD is excellent (daytime only) eats up around 6-8GB of storage in 1.8-2hrs of recording.
- Wide angle lens capture is excellent (specially pag gamit ko as dashcam)
- It has a "segment recording" mode of 6 minutes interval. (para sure na kahit macorrupt yung isang recording di mawawala lahat)
- It has a "car mode" setting where the camera automatically starts recording once you turn on the engine
- The "car kit" suction bracket na included dun sa package na kinuha ko is good..
- UI is acceptable.. not that easy to use but good enough for a standard dashcam. (the wifi version is helpful)\

Cons:

- Night time recording is not that good specially pag wala na masyadong ilaw ang paligid.. no night mode
- Sound recording is not good (or maybe because I recorded it with the "armor casing")
- The Armor Casing seems ok but not that sturdy for me.. I think a couple of drops will destroy it.
- Water resistance/proof? (haven't tried it yet) but I will soon.. it seems not that sealed to me..
- 720p and below resolution in low light is already grainy

TBC..

for your peace of mind bro, tissue ang ilagay mo sa loob ng waterproof case tapos ilublub mo sa tubog for 30 minutes. if the tissue does not get soaked, you're good to go.
