Sj5000+


Nice pictures, I couldn't remove the PCB, only the metallic part. Do you think the brown label is the wireless antenna?

Yesterday I uploaded a video recorded in the car at dusk time. Now one a little earlier of day:
SJ5000+ vs Mini 0806 - 1080p sunset wild road (1 min 32 sec)


Somebody asked if the sound is stereo or double mono. I think is double mono and this is a sound volume test at 60% setting:
SJ5000+ outdoor volume sound recording test (0 min 13 sec)


More nature pictures here.

And a short timelapse made from pictures:
SJ5000+ sunrise timelapse 4K from 16MP pictures (0 min 56 sec)


I think sjcam.com and foxoffer.com delayed the shipping because firmware have some problems and I consider is not finished even you can see camera is working, recording, taking photos.

enjoy,
Mtz

Thanks for posting videos and pictures!
I have the SJ4000 a half year, very impressed for 85$ camera.
I expected more from the 5000, I don't know which sensor it use but its definitely not 16MP.

Will wait to see more videos and photos at clear sunny day, right now I don't think its worth 170$.

Considering this - $128 for Sony cam!

Price for SJ5k doesn't look attractive AT ALL!

Sony isn't the best cam for gimbals, but price for sj5000+ should be less for sure.

The battery was going from full to empty in 47 minutes (latest 5 minutes were with „Low battery” warning on LCD display) of continuous recording and:
- 1080p 60fps
- dual streams enabled
- Wi-Fi = On and streaming to my android smartphone
- LCD= On almost all time.

The latest file was saved correctly when camera was shut down because empty battery.

enjoy,
Mtz

It is using the same battery as SJ4000.

Next things are about Android application and smartphone because this is what I have. I don't have iOS devices or tablet, which should work in the same way both.
Dual Streams = On is needed if you want to use the wireless connection.
Dual stream means the camera is recording at the same time the video at your selected resolution (for example 1080p 60fps) and another video with very low specs 240p 10fps, 615kbps needed for live viewing on smartphone screen of the current recording.

If you want just live viewing but not recording you can disable Dual Stream in camera settings and you will have live view of the high resolution you set on SJ5000+.

This dual stream mode cannot be set from Android application and I posted few screenshots from application/camera settings here.

You can see these settings which are available in reality if you enabled Dual Stream = On:
Playback streaming (High resolution - Low resolution)
Download size (High resolution - Low resolution)
For example a 1 min High resolution video is 180MB and the android application is telling you that you need 6 minutes to download the video from camera to smartphone storage. When you want to play it to your Android smartphone it will take a lot of time to buffer it.
For 1 min (20MB) of Low resolution you need 1 minute do download.

About file sizes:
The filesizes are always multiple of 20MB. For example: 20512 KB, 40992 KB, 61472 KB, 81952 KB and these example sizes are for small test videos between 2s and 20s. For example a 8s, 11s, 13s video will have the same size, 40992 KB.

More about wireless:
- I consider the Wireless is needed when you want to start/stop the recording and you don't have access to the place were camera is . For example the camera is under water and you want to start the recording only when you see some activity.
- The smartphone application is better to be started when SJ5000+ is in stand by and not recording after pressed the camera button.
The card must be always inserted in the camera because the Wi-Fi settings are on the card. So you cannot have live streaming on your smartphone without card inserted. You can not trick the camera to start smartphone wireless connection when card is inside camera and then remove the card because you want to use just the live viewing. You need at least one old card, even 1GB size.
- Wireless area coverage is depending a lot of open area or not and your smartphone quality components.
- You need to set the SJ5000 Plus to always on to not lose the live view.

enjoy,
Mtz

Did original battery from camera SJCAM SJ 4000 or camera SJCAM SJ 4000 Wifi go to new Sjcam SJ 5000+?
According to http://www.banggood.com/3_7V-900mAh-...-p-949908.html battery from SJCAM SJ 4000 Wifi is not sutable for SJCAM SJ 4000?! If correct, how is that possible?
