SJCAM models like this new SJ5000x became over time one of the most popular sports cameras for extreme sports enthusiasts. Not to mention that they are probably the most feared competitor of the GoPro cameras. The SJCam action cams are popular for the good after-sale customer support (firmware upgrades) and very good image quality at a quite affordable price.
This new SJ5000x camera comes with an interesting innovation called “Gyro anti-shake” which allows clear and steady images/videos even in low light conditions.
The AV-out and 2K video resolution make this camera also suitable to be installed on remote-controlled aircraft (drones/quadcopters) for aerial filming and first-person view flights.
On the SJCam’s website, this SJ5000x action camera is listed to be a “Limited edition” model. Probably they are planning to release a totally new product line.
