What SD CARD should I buy?

If you want an SD Card for your camera - these are the ones I use and recommend. 

I'd strongly recommend not to buy any SD cards off ebay - I've heard about too many issues with counterfeit cards - often sold on by unwitting resellers. My inbox regularly gets messages from people who bought a £150 camera then cheaped out and bought a £3 memory card on ebay - Then when it doesn't worth they blame the camera! It doesn't make any sense. Good memory is cheaper than it's ever been - see the links above.

A lot of HD cameras will not work properly with cards larger than 32GB (cards over 32GB are usually SDXC rather than the SDHC standard used by 32GB cards. SDXC cards use the ex-FAT system rather than FAT32 - in short they are a different standard). - so don't just buy the biggest card you can afford - read the specs in the manual to see what it accepts.

CLASS 10 UHS-1 CARDS (For HD Cameras)

SPECIAL DASHCAM CARDS

The SD card in a dashcam is re-written over, more frequently than in other types of cameras. Some manufacturers void their guarantee if an SD card was used in a dashcam. So, no surprise, there are special High Endurance SD cards made just for dashcams...here's some.

 

VERY IMPORTANT. These links take you to the product, however Amazon have three different ways of selling. There's Amazon Direct - This means that you are only dealing with Amazon themselves, then there's other sellers that use Amazon's facilities - these show as Fulfilled By Amazon and finally there's Market Place sellers that advertise on Amazon, but operate independently.  I strongly recommend that you only use the first...the Amazon Direct - Sold By Amazon option. Even if it appears that you are paying a couple of £/$ more it is more than likely you are comparing the price of a real item against the price of a fake.

To give you an idea of the extent of the fake goods problem. In a 2016 survey by Apple - 90% of the 'Apple' chargers sold through Amazon - using the other the two methods..which includes the "Fulfilled by Amazon" option -  were found to be counterfeit....90%!

At last it's the Real SJ4000 WiFi Review

Here at last, is my review of the SJ4000 WiFi review. Whilst there isn't a massive amount of difference between this and my original non-wifi version, somehow I've managed to stretch this out into a half hour video.

If you just want to know about the WiFi function and whether there are any other differences between this and the older models, you'll find your answer in the first few minutes, so no point skipping to the end. 

In this video I also take a minute to explain why you should think twice before ordering the SJ5000 camera that's doing the rounds at the moment.

My video review is below.

Here is a short video of the SJ4000 HD 1080p wifi camera I bought off from ebay for $84.00. I thought it was a good deal and a good quality video for the price. Please check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks.

Does the wifi version affects the battery too much? wifi can be turned on/off right? both non-wifi and wifi version uses same battery?

November 19, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterashish

You'll see in the video, during the section where I demonstrate the Wifi when I turn it on using the button on the side the screen on the back of the camera shows a big WiFi logo instead of the viewfinder. You only use the wifi for a few seconds to transfer files and line up shots. It's not supposed to be left on for any amount of time.

As we know this camera can take still pictures up to 3Mpix without interpolation (sensor limitation). However it seems that 12Mpix pictures are a little bit better than 3Mpix afte resizing. Any recommendations to get best results in still pictures?

Would be nice to view the MP4 file especially when we don't use insecure FLASH.

November 20, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterEE

Link me to a file sharing service that allows at least 100GB downloads per month, 250mb file size and no auto-deletion of old files that doesn't use flash and I'll adopt it.

Awesome review. Thanks so much for posting this. I can't wait for my camera to come in.

Hi great review.
Does the Gopro wifi remote work with the SJ4000 wifi?
Also best picture settings for Snow? :)

Great review, many thanks. Are you aware of an action cam like this one which actually takes good high res (10 -14 mpixels) stills also? I'm into bike touring and am trying to cut out on the tech I need to take with me. Many thanks in advance.
