Quite reasonable price for a 4k High resolution Sport Action Cam.
It looks like a Gopro! That was my first thought after putting on the waterproof casing.
The mounting accessories is even the same with Gopro.
Anyway with this tempting price, couldn’t ask for more.
I like the blue lights and those buttons are quite easy to understand to function, just that the device is too small and you may accidentally pressed some button.
Display screen is only 2″Inches, kinda small for me.
Comes with a 3.7v Li-ion Battery at 900mAh. Approximately of a 2hours+ standby time and Max would be 1hour+ running the device continuously. Advise to get replacement battery.
The Manual and some accessories given. Standard stuff and not sure whether we will fully utilize those accessories. For some Pro, maybe!
A total of 7 pages of setting to your own preferences, to test on the Video resolutions.
I have chosen 1920×1080 for time lapse and a 4k resolution during the drone flying ( refer to video at lowest part).
Connecting to your WiFi devices :
Well I can only figure out the only device would be my cellphone as SJ5000X does not compatible with any SJCAM remote itself.
1. Install SJCAM apps from Apps store or playstore
2. Connect cellphone with sjcam
3. Launch SJCAM apps and Connect Camera
And there you go.
*With the apps, there are some limitations on the settings. Some settings still need to configure in the cam itself.

Price comparing :
I’ve found a few page for the price of this cam, some is cheaper where some is more expensive. As a smart consumer, you know what is best.
After using the SJCAM SJ5000X , I would rate 4 stars out of 5 epecially with it’s performance and price .
Before buying this action cam, I’d compared a few video quality of the SJ5000X elite with comparison to other action cam and mostly found that SJCAM SJ5000x gave the best quality.
-Value for money
-Does not come with Bluetooth that can easily connect with a remote
-Using wifi that only connect/control using handphone
-Low battery life
-abit confuse at the User interface at first
Time Lapse 1 – Using 1920×1080 30fps (The cam is stabilize with a tripod)
Time Lapse 2 – Using 1920×1080 30fps (The cam is stabilize with a tripod)
Shoot using 4k 24FPS, 21.2Mbps while drone (XK X251) flying
-It was mounted on my cap and you gotta focus the video quality instead of focusing on the drone)
