Description: SJ7 Star has several minor changes compared to its predecessor, the SJ6. In the previous version, the cam has a tripod mount but the SJ7 Star doesn’t have it. It’s able to record in 4K or 2,7K, however, you can’t use GIS in that filming rate. GIS is only available for 1080p @60FPS. Although it uses Ambarella A12S SoC, it doesn’t support H.265 encode and USB 3.0. Another let down is how the camera will return to its default rate, which is 720p @24FPS every after shutting down. The footages are good but low-light mode isn’t as nice as expected.

Video Resolution This is the pixel number that a display or a camera sensor has (refers to the digital image of the action camera).

If you have more pixels then they can provide the display with the ability of more visual information. So, simply put, the higher the resolution, the better images/videos your action camera will be able to take. The best resolution an action camera can have is 4K, Ultra HD (3840 x 2160).
Video Frame Rate The frame rate or FPS at which the action camera takes it pictures/videos. Many high quality cameras record at 30 fps.
