After reading many GoPro reviews and tests I found some action camera that would do for the same purpose for a lot less money. I’m not telling you not to buy a GoPro camera, in fact, I think you should stick to it, unless you’re short on money or you’re not willing to spend a few hundred bucks.
I was interested in a GoPro Hero 4 Black or Silver, but their battery time was really low and so I thought, why spending over 400€ when I can get something cheaper? Some product of not such high quality but that will work for my needs?
I then watched many youtube videos comparing different action cameras and I got surprised by this one: The SJ7000. That you could buy for only 50€ !
In fact, a few days later my friend Velicu from Romania purchased one of these, and told me it was a good quality camera and if I wasn’t looking to spend a lot of money it would be a good choice.
And I did… I have now the SJ7000, I haven’t tested it much, I just shot a few photos and videos because my free time has been really scarce lately. Anyway, let me tell you something more about this camera.
