Christmas is just gone, but gearbest is always making great promotions! This time you will find many deals in the action cam category, let’s see some of them.
SJ6 Legend can record interpolated 4K@24fps videos – interpolated 4K videos from 2880×2160 resolution to 3840×2160 -, native 2K@30fps and 1080p@120fps, being equipped with 16MP Panasonic MN34120PA CMOS sensor,and Novatek 96660 sensor (the same of SJ5000X, Git2, Explorer Pro, SJ5000X, M20, Firefly 7s etc.).
Video and photo quality are very good, better then all other cam equipped with Novatek 96660, and almost as good as ThiEYE and Yi 4k. Videos are sharp and have natural colors and a good definition. Gyro stabilizer works very well, it is effective in every situation, probably the best together with git2 and sony cams.
It features a 2″ touchscreen display, very useful to change options and navigate in the menu, to see what you are recording and to playback videos and photos, and a small front status display.
SJ6 Legend features a built-in Electronic Image Stabilizer (EIS) for smooth videos without vibrations and shaky videos. It uses a Gyro sensor combined with a Acceleration sensor to perceive and stabilize vibrations and shaking during a motion and is very effective, probably the best together with Git2 and SJ5000X.
SJ6 has built-in wifi that allows you to connect the phone to the cam using the app SJCam Zone (iOS / Android). SJCAM SJ6 Legend can be controlled by a remote control, the same used by the SJCAM M20 and SJ7. Perfect when you put the cam in places you can’t reach with your hand, like the helmet, kayak, outside the car or other places. You can start/stop recording, take a picture, change mode, turn off wifi and even turn off (and on?) the cam. SJ6 can be used with an external microphone, and this is again something new for this brand.
ThiEYE T5e can record native 4K@30fps videos and 1080p@120fps, being equipped with 12MP Sony IMX117 sensor, the same used by GoPro in the Hero 4 black, and with Ambarella A12 chip and features a 170° Wide-angle Lens, f=3mm, F/2.5 aperture.
This action cam records excellent and sharp videos with natural colors, and shoots very nice photos. It really surprised me when i tested it!
ThiEYE T5e features a built-in Electronic Image Stabilizer (EIS) for smooth videos without vibrations and shaky videos. It uses a Gyro sensor combined with a Acceleration sensor to perceive and stabilize vibrations and shaking during a motion. It’s quite good but not as effective as Git2 and SJ6 ones.
T5e has built-in wifi that allows you to connect the phone to the cam using the app ThiEYE HD (iOS / Android). T5e can be controlled by a remote control, optional and still not available. It can be used with an external microphone.
This semi-professional action camera has excellent features, that will compete with Gopro 5 black. It features Ambarella A9SE chip and Sony IMX377 sensor, top quality hardware to record stunning 4K@30fps and 1080P@120fps video, and 12MP pictures. This is probably the best action cam under 250$ and can compete with Gopro 5 and Sony X1000V for video and photo quality.
It also features a 2.19″ touchscreen display – it’s really big, much bigger than gopro’s – where you can see what you are recording or shooting, change options and features just touching it, and playback videos. Besides, it has a wifi 2 times faster than the gopro one, that reaches 3MB/s download speed, a 1400mAh battery that allows to record up to 120 minutes at the maximum 4k@30fps resolution – we tested it befor saying – , and a 6-axys Gyro stabilizer that removes vibrations and unwanted movements. Talking about the audio, Xiaomi Yi2 mounts 2 microphones for a superior stereo audio quality. It has bluetooth and you can control it using the YI RC remote control (I personally tested it and it works perfect). And all of this for 249$! (206$ for this promotion).
We tested the cam and 4k videos are astonishing, sharp, bright, clear and crisp. It seems like to watch high quality pictures moving. I took my cam to the mountais near my city, and took some picture and 4k video. Talking about photos, I’m not used to see such good quality in pictures shot with a action cam. Git2, Sj5000X makes good photos, but these are excellent! Maybe even better than gopro 4 black, or at least of the same quality. Read our Yi technlogy Yi 4k review.
