Sports or action cameras are increasing in sales. Today, everyone wants to photograph an extreme bike ride through the trees, diving into coral reefs, or maybe their kids jumping into the water.
Sports cameras are characterized by durability, water resistance and a wide shooting angle, which makes it difficult to miss the thing we want to record. In addition, in recent years, they have made significant progress in the field of image quality itself. Here, 4K resolution has become the norm. Of course, action cameras also allow simply to take pictures, although they are mainly intended, as said, for recording.
A niche product that has captured a wide range of users
Sports cameras are basically a fairly niche affair, and since we all ride bikes, skis, shoot underwater and the like, they’ve found their market in a very wide range of users who are happy to take them with them on their adventures.
Today, we can spend a fortune or 10 euros just on sports cameras. You can be sure that there will be a huge difference between a sports camera for 70 euros and a sports camera for 500 euros. But somewhere in between are affordable cameras that offer enviable performance and do a lot for the price they’re asking.
We liked the big screen and 4K recording
We recently got our hands on one of the cameras mentioned above. Shown a lot on paper, the package included a bunch of extras, including a waterproof bag, and the first impression was great. SJCAM Sj10 Pro He made a good impression on us at first sight. It is equipped with a large 5.91 cm (2.33 in) touch screen and a rather large lens on the front, which is placed in the far right corner above.
The attractive design is complemented by a 1300 mAh battery, which provides up to 140 minutes of recording in 1080p and up to 95 minutes of 4K recording (60 fps), if the screen and wireless connection to Wi-Fi is turned off. 4K recording will amaze you with clear picture and slow motion that will amaze you. 4K resolution is enhanced by SuperSmooth technology. Now what is this? SuperSmooth guarantees you, as the name implies, a “smooth” and stable image without flickering.
For storage, it supports micro SD card up to 128GB.
In the video below, you can see how the sports cam finds itself on the cycling tour.
A waterproof case worth using
The waterproof “cage” body of the camera ensures resistance of up to 10 meters underwater. But why immerse it in water without protection, if you also got a can in the package. That is why we did not immerse it “naked” in water, but it works perfectly in the case. The case is compact, opening requires some practice. It can be a little awkward when you first open it, but the most important thing is that it completely protects the camera from getting in the water. So we recommend a case for underwater projects, but the camera will work fine without it (maximum 10m). On paper, the waterproof casing ensures that the camera will remain intact even when submerged up to 30 metres.
Phone connection and video editing app is useful
One of the best options is to connect the camera to a smartphone or an app that you download to your phone. The SJCAM Sj10 Pro action camera has a built-in Wi-Fi wireless interface, which also allows direct sharing of adrenaline moments or roles (vlogs) on social networks.
You can of course record yourself and present it to your followers later, and edit the video material and photo in the meantime. The app also allows you to edit recordings, add music and upload them later on social networks or wherever you want.
Bottom line, it’s a camera that does a lot for its money and won’t drain your money completely. So if you don’t want to buy the most expensive camera on the market, but don’t want to risk bad shots, the SJCAM Sj10 Pro is a good choice. An additional advantage is the application or phone connection, which facilitates management.
