In SJCAM they are working on three new cameras that will interfere with all the most demanding categories of action cameras. They choose those who want a Full HD camcorder with 60fps or the most demanding one that wants a 4K 60fps resolution. We bring you exclusive information that comes from a SJCAM source.


The highest model will be SJCAM SJ8 PRO with 4K 60fps resolution and Ambarella H2 chip and Sony IMX377 chip. This is the same specification as the Yi 4K + ( camera review ).

The SJCAM SJ8 PRO should be equipped with a 1200mAh battery and there should be no pair of displays. The main one will have a size of 2.33 “and will be touching with a live preview of the recorded video. The front should be a 0.96” display. An external microphone and remote control can also be connected to the SJ8 PRO.
