SJCAM SJ4000 – Overview

SJ4000 by SJCAM
Camera Review, SJCAM  /   /  By el Producente

This camera is some kind of “classic” action camera and was the first popular low budget camera in comparison to the GoPro. It is important to know which cameras are by SJCAM, as there are many fake models. Currently there is the SJ4000 & SJ4000+ and the SJ5000 & SJ5000+. There are SJ6000 and SJ7000 models available, but they are from other manufacturers! As predecessors can be seen either the SJ4000+ or the SJ5000+, but let’s take a look at the original SJ4000:
