Before the arrival of the GoPro Hero action camera, most people never even realized that there is a need for such a camera. But after watching countless GoPro Hero video clips online, everyone wants one even though they don’t have any interest in extreme sports. With the popularity of GoPro cameras, it is inevitable that copy cat products start showing up in the market including lower cost versions. Among the low cost alternatives, the SJ4000 WiFi Action Camera seems to have gotten a lot of attention as being one of the best in its price range.
While its price is a fraction of the cheapest GoPro Hero, the SJ4000 WiFi Action Camera is no slouch when it comes to features. For starters it has a 12-megapixel CMOS sensor with HD wide-angle lens. Its water-resistant casing allows filming water sports and activities. It is capable of capturing still photos and 1080p videos at a speed of 30 FPS. At the back of the camera is a high definition screen for displaying and reviewing images and videos.
It comes with built-in Wi-Fi and when connected to your smartphone, you can watch the captured video live on your smartphone’s display thus letting you frame your video capture or still shots on your phone when the display on the camera itself can’t be used.
An app for both iOS and Android devices is available that lets you operate the camera and review captured video. The SJ4000 WiFi Action Camera provides HD HDMI output support. For storage, it has an SD card slot that supports cards up to 32GB in size.
While action cameras were popularized by extreme sports enthusiasts, many have found other uses for the small and handy action camera. Like the GoPro, the SJ4000 WiFi Action Camera’s portability and extremely good battery life makes it a great alternative to a normal camera or even a smartphone. Also like the GoPro Hero, there are many accessories and mounts available for the SJ4000 WiFi Action Camera including waterproof casing as well as helmet and handlebar mounts. Even owners of the GoPro Hero are getting the SJ4000 for situations where they do not want to risk their GoPro Hero.
