As you may know, SJCAM is working on their SJCAM SJ8 Pro which should be their best action cam to date. But besides that, there will be 2 more cheaper variations with less features. The manufacturer has already sent us more detailed info about these, so let’s take a closer look.

SJCAM SJ8 PRO

It is meant to be the most advanced SJ8 version with 4K/60 fps recording capability, which means it will be on the same level as Xiaomi YI  4K+ (our review here), and GoPro Hero 6.

SJCAM SJ8 PRO

SJ8 Pro specifications:

  • processor: Ambarella H2-2S85
  • Max resolutioní: 4K/60fps, 1080P/120fps
  • sensor: Sony IMX377
  • Back 2.33” IPS touchscreen
  • Codec: H.264/H.265
  • Waterproof up to 30 meters
  • 8x digital zoom
  • Gyroscopic stabilization
  • 1200 mAh battery
  • Wifi, external mic jack, support for remote control, voice control, front screen

SJCAM SJ8 PLUS

This one seems to be the golden mean. It can handle 4K recording, albeit 30 fps only this time. Both, gyroscopic stabilization and two screens are still present.

SJCAM SJ8 Plus

SJ8 Plus specifications:

  • Processor: Novatek 96683
  • Max resolution: 4K/30fps, 1080P/120fps

SJCAM SJ8 AIR

Same as SJ8 Plus, the SJ8 Air will house a Novatek processor at its core. This time it’s called Novatek 96658. The sensor is also different. SJ8 Air will offer 14 MPx Panasonic sensor. The front screen is now gone and so is probably the 4K capability.

SJCAM SJ8 Air

  • processor: Novatek 96658
  • Max resolution: FullHD/60fps
  • sensor: Panasonic MN34110PA
  • Back 2.33” IPS touchscreen
