Hello,

I'm thinking of buying this: http://www.sj5000actioncamera.com/

I've never had something like this before but I want to use it with my smartphone. For example, I want to be able to put it on my rear bumper, or tape it to a stick to check the gutters of the roof (is this correct English? ) I can then use the screen of my phone to see what the camera sees.

Also I want to be able to upload video with my phone without using a computer.

Does anybody know if this is easy with something like this? I've also seen an older version: http://www.foxoffer.com/sjcam-sj4000...l#.VBcPUvl_tUU maybe someone has experience with that?

Thanks in advance

I don't have experience with that particular camera but I have a GoPro Hero3 Black. It has WiFi built in and I never installed the app or used the WiFi feature strictly because I hear it's a real bad battery drain. Don't know how it affects the one you're looking at but I have to imagine it drains the battery a bit. As far as uploading video, I imagine that it wouldn't be difficult as long as you have good data signal and the patience to let the video upload.

All SJ5000 are not the same manufacturer of SJCAM SJ4000.

There are two version of sj4000 wifi,

the original sjcam one has better video effect but not stable wifi

the third party sj4000 has normal video effect but stable wifi

Geekbuying has both of them with price of 112.99usd and 79.99usd

So there is a real difference between the SJCAM SJ4000 lister here: http://www.foxoffer.com/sjcam-sj4000...l#.VBtMsvl_tUU and the SJ4000 here http://www.sj4000actioncamera.com?

As far as I can see in the list of specs is that the real difference is the WiFi and the battery (SJCAM offers 50mAh less).

But if I look at the differences in the SJ4000 and the SJ5000 there is no real difference notable, except for the wifi and the battery again. But for the 5 bucks more I guess I'd like some more juice and WiFi

I think I seen somewhere a comparison between SJ4000 and SJ5000 features, and SJ5000 was a lot better, including wi-fi support. Amazing deal for $85 http://www.dx.com/p/amkov-sj5000-14-...2#.VBzLH7B0z3g - and you can use all GoPro accessories!

According to what I have seen original sjcam cameras are marked as such and are better than their lookalikes. At present the latest sjcam sj5000 plus Ambarella A7LS75 chipped version is off the market by manufacturer as it has a wifi problem being fixed. Some old stock looks like it is being being sold through other dealers though. Some say as good as gopro 3 for much less money. Gopro4 is on aussie market at $549au sjcam sj5000plus is $207au. I am buying mine with 2 spare batteries and external charger for $243au. Around third the price but certainly not a third the quality photography or hardware.

Cool, looking forward to it. Did you order it somewhere or did some company give it to you for reviewing purposes?

Actually Sj5000 is not better than sj4000
On youtube some videos show sj5000 is not better than sj4000 camera ,sj4000 is good action camera, but blackview dv800b is better than sj4000. sj 4000 is 1080P camera, but blackview Dv800B is 2.7k camera, 1080P/60fps, On youtube you can get the original videos captured by blackview dv800b,no editing,no music,no subtitle.
