5.0 out of 5 stars GoPro Clone; Excellent Action Cam., June 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: RioRand WiFi RS4000 Helmet Sports DV 1080P Full HD H.264 12MP Car Recorder Diving Bicycle Action Camera 2.0Inch LCD 140° Wide Angle Lens Outdoor Waterproof G-Senor Motorbike Camcorder DVR (White) (Camera)
You're not going to be shooting videos that look quite like the videos seen on GoPro commercials, but then again you're not going to get that with a GoPro either :p

I purchased this action camera after coming back from a music festival where a close friend of mine had a GoPro Hero 3 (I think). After watching the videos he took of the festival and comparing the quality to those shot from this camera by someone on youtube, the only reason I could think to spend the extra $200 on the GoPro would be for its WiFi capabilites (the sj4000 doesn't have WiFi). After 3+ days of shooting nearly everything I can with the SJ4000, it's not the best footage I've ever seen, but for an Action Camera that shoots 1080p video, is extremely light, shoots for 70+ minutes, comes fully stocked with all the attachments you'll need, for less than $100 you can't go wrong.

**UPDATE JUNE 30, 2014**

I was able to show that same friend of mine with the GoPro the SJ4000... He couldn't believe the deal of the camera. "Its like better than my GoPro!" was something that he said when playing with the SJ4000. He is now considering selling his GoPro and buying one of these guys. He said having the screen on the camera to see what your shooting to be extremely beneficial.

How long the battery last if you only take photos?

Honestly, the only reason he would sell his GoPro 3 is to get the new GoPro 4. This looks like a nice camera for the money but GoPro is the way to go if you can afford it.

Apparently you didn't get one of the MANY replica knockoffs they ar selling here on Amazon and Amazon does NOTHING about! I was sent a cheap knockoff, after owning a REAL J4000 I knew the difference right away. You were lucky if you got the real deal because those ARE great cameras for the price.

How do you tell if it is a knock off or not before buying?

Will they at least reimburse you if you get a bad camera?
