I was thinking about getting a gopro for fun for my next trip. Any suggestions on which one to get?

 

Is it worth the money?

Sj4000. Look at comparisons on youtube. Sj is only 130 aud on ebay. I have the newer wifi.

I have two of the latest GoPros and hate them.  The old versions were better.

 

I am changing over to the SJCAM4000 as mentioned by another poster.  It has a viewing screen on back; and takes better focussed videos (you can read about all the focus issues on GoPros all over the net). 

 

If you are shooting porn with the GoPro, be warned that HIDDEN low resolution video files are created on the memory card and are only deleted when you re-format the card.  In other words, if your computer isn't set to "SHOW ALL HIDDEN FILES", you will not see the hidden low res copies.

It's a fucking tiny camera that's for sure! Quite happy that I picked the silver since the screen on the back is a huge bonus.

 

Accesories:

- GoPole Bobber

- PolarPro No-Show Extension Pole 

- PolarPro Backpack Strap

- Joby Gorillapod Action Tripod

- Extra batteries

- Polarizing Filter

- Diving Filter

 

Intending to use it for wintersports, holiday videos, extreme sports. Potentially some naughty videos. Will probably end up with me making only naughty videos haha.

Plus it gives the girls a good laugh when you wear your chest harness during your short-time.    :)

I've got a go pro silver, thought I'd use it non stop.

 

I've brought it three times to pattaya, once to Phuket and pretty much every trip to any place I go in Aus or NZ.

 

Yep it fit well in my suitcase where it spends its time on these holidays.

I never use it. Even when I go for a surf or bike ride at home, I don't use it.

And the times during the first week of purchase when I did use it.

No one including myself watched the awesome HD video recordings either.

GoPro > sjcam4000 in image quality and lots of other things.

 

sjcam4000 is an amazing budget product, but that's all there is to it.

I have an Sj400 bought at tukcom and am happy with it for the price. If I find that I am making lots of videos, then I will look at upgrading. But it's a great first gopro clone camera

I still like it and I just purchased my second one.

I paid MORE for the first one:

Compare that to the last GoPro Purchase:

The sjcam4000

... has better LOW LIGHT video imaging. (think making porn in your room) and has exposure, white balance and other settings!

... doesn't write other "hidden evidence files" to your card when recording a movie.

... allows you to set the "video-to-save" time from 2-5-10 minutes or don't save until run out of space.  Saving every 5 or 10 minutes guarantees that you never have a corrupt video because of battery or card failure.

... comes with more mounting options, including un-cased tripod mounts, motorcycle mount, and car suction cup mount. 

... can be used as a dash cam and is pre-programmed to turn on and off based on power to the camera. 

... comes with THREE batteries

... has better focus at 2-8 feet AND has zoom!

... has motion detection recording.

... has wifi connection

 

The sjcam4000 DOES NOT HAVE

... a ONE TOUCH setting to turn on and start recording like the GoPro.  To turn on the sjcam, you press power, wait for it to power up, then press record.

... time lapse recording (native)

Unfortunately, I remembered something else after I made the last post and it was too late to edit ...

 

Be careful in Pattaya as there is a FAKE SJCam being sold.  For example, if you look at 2nd floor Royal Garden, you will see a kiosk selling SJCam fakes and "clones".   Tukcom might be the same way ...

 

Here are a few sites that help you get the REAL SJCAM.

https://forum.dashcamtalk.com/threads/about-the-sj4000-action-camera-original-and-copy-version.6779/

 

The biggest things to notice ... fake doesn't have SJCAM on the front; and fake box has "SPORTS" cam on the front instead of SJCAM.

Thanks for sharing your experience. I was thinking about getting one but I think I would probably have the same result,

I don't even use my still camera or the cam on my phone very much.
