SJCAM SJ7 Star 4K Ambarella A12 Sony IMX117 MIC Gyro Action Camera Coming Soon


The SJCAM SJ7 Star Action Camera is coming soon. The SJ6 Legend is similar to the SJ7 Star except for the Star has Real 4k instead of SJ6’s interpolated 4k. 

Here are some specs:

Image Sensor: 

SJCAM SJ7 Star uses a 12 MP Sony Sensor (IMX117), the same sensor used in GoPro Hero 4 black. 

The SJ6 Legend features a 16 MP Panasonic sensor, but is not capable of native 4K recording.



Chipset will be an Ambarella A12.

The main difference of these two SJ6 and the SJ7 Star is 4K resolution video recording. While SJCAM SJ7 Star is capable of real, native 4K resolution recording, SJ6 Legend is recording interpolated 4K. This is SJCAM’s first native 4K action camera. 

In addition, the body of SJ7 is made of metal, whereas SJ6’s boy is made of plastic. Both cameras feature a 2.0″ Touch Screen’s and can be hooked up with an external microphone.


Other SJCAM SJ7 Star Hot-spots Include: 

– 4K @ 24fps

– Stainless Steel Housing

– Gyro Stabilization

– 2.0″ Touch Screen

– External Mic Support

– 12MP Sony IMX117 Lens (Same as GoPro 2)

– Adjustable FOV

– SlowMotion 

– 2.4ghz Wireless Remote Support

And much much more.
