SJCAM is one of the big hitters in the action camera world. The company name might not be that well known in the UK but its cameras are at the heart of influence in the action camera design and development.
The latest SJ8 range features three models the SJ8 Air, SJ8 Plus and SJ8 Pro. The Pro is the flagship camera and features some impressive tech and specifications.
Inside is the Ambarella H22 S85 processor which is coupled with the Sony IMX377 sensor. Both the sensor and processor are the next generation so we can expect impressive image quality.
The camera is fronted by a f/2.8, 2.8mm lens with a 170º field of view. The lens is the 7G (2 Aspherical lens), this will help cut down distortion and improve edge to edge sharpness.
On the back of the camera is a large touchscreen 2.33-inch OLED. That OLED enables fast access to settings and features. An interesting option here is that you can select either a classic or all new icon-based UI.
Resolutions and framerates are impressive with 4K at 60fps and 1080p at 120fps. Not quite GoPro Hero7 Black territory but not far off.
There’s also built-in image stabilisation, an 8x digital zoom, WiFi and a good selection of accessories in the box. – Camera Jabber
