Great bang for your buck

 

I really enjoyed this camera. Its just as easy as my go pro hero 3+. The lcd screen comes in handy aswell were as my go pro i have to turn the wifi on and go to my app on my phone to just even see if i took a decent picture or video.

I was impressed.

 

Awesome action camera with features you would pay much more for from a "name brand" version. Easy to use, and works very well.

Worked well for about 2 days

 

I planned on using the camera for some time lapse videos (3d printing), filming while driving, and bicycling. But 3 days into owning it, it stopped working.

Not bad, but not perfect, for the price it's great

 

I purchased this camera due to my student budget. Having studied side by side comparisons with the GoPro Hero 3 & 4, I was convinced and didn't mind the drawbacks.

Big Bang for the Buck for a Tiny Camera

 

I originally bought the Xiaomi Yi to attach to a quadcopter in order to get some aerial images. However, it gave me images which appeared to have been over processed with details looking more like an oil painting than a photo. I quickly returned that...

Definitely not a GoPro, but don't let that stop you!

 

Owning a GoPro Hero 3 Black, for a project I needed a second setup for time lapse picture taking.

Fantastic product and Support

 

I purchased a sj5000 for our family vacation. I used it for a few days to get a good understanding of it. The screen went white with update. Camera was replaced in 24 hours, WOW. Vacation pictures are great.
