The race for who will knock GoPro off of the throne as Action Camera King is heating up. 2018 may be the year with GoPro is finally replaced on the “Best Action Camera of …” lists.
PoshGadgets reported that they just received a leak picture of the SJ8 Native 4k Action Camera with 4K@60fps from SJCAM. While it probably will only support EIS up to 4K@30fps, this is more than enough for action camera usage.
The SJ8 has several features that the Gopro Hero5 and Yi4k+ don’t have. While SJ8’s specs are still only tentative/guesswork, things like GPS, dual screens and FPV PWM mode will set it apart from its competitors.
Things like the User Interface have not been confirmed. The SJ6 Legend and SJ7 Star Native 4K action camera UI was good, but, if SJ8 is able to up the ante, user experience will be that much better and the SJ8 could very possibly topple all other candidates on the Best Action Camera of 2018 lists.
Other Speculated SJCAM SJ8 Specs Include:
Ambarella H22 Chipset
Sony IMX377 Sensor
Dual Screen – 2.33″ Touchscreen + 0.96″ Front
FPV Mode (PWM)
24fps / 25fps
External Mic Support
2.4GHz Remote Support
EIS (Gyro) up to 4K30Fps
