SJCAM SJ7 Star by Salesberg Youtube review

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.

Pros

  • Can shoot at FHD 4K @30FPS or 2,7K @30FPS
  • Has Gyro Image Stabilization (GIS)
  • Employs touch screen
  • Supports external microphone & car mode
  • Package includes 2 waterproof housing (Deep diving & shallow depth)
  • Body is made of aluminum
  • Boasts a 12MP Sony IMX117 sensor & 7.81mm with pixel size 1.55nm
  • Sports Ambarella A12S SoC
  • Provides Smartphone and Smartwatch connect
  • Camera footage looks good and smooth

Cons

  • A12S chip doesn’t encode H.265 and USB 3.0
  • Videos and images saturation might be too strong for some people
  • Low-light mode in 4K is a bit blurry, dark and lacks of details
  • GIS can’t be used for filming 4K & 2,7K videos (only available on 1080p @60FPS)
  • Camera rate goes to Default after shutting down (720p @24FPS)
  • Heating issue due to newest update
  • No tripod mount
  • Oversized protective case
