Nice

looks pretty good for price heat added

Looks very similar to the SJ4000 wifi except for the brighter coloured housing.

Tempted by one of these as mentioned above looks similar to the sj4000

Anyone know when they are due in store as couldn't see a date on the link

Thursday the 20th of November

Schumacher!

I have one of these from a year ago with out the wifi, and it is superb. The picture is lovely and you get some fantastic mounting options in the box ( as long as it is same as last year) it did come with a t adapter so you could
then use go pro mounts which are cheap on ebay. I have used it on motorcycle track days and recently used it under water when snorkling in Cuba. Battery life is over 2hrs but you can buy extra batteries, i think when I looked they are a phone sony battery again very cheap on ebay.

Any ideas what the frame rate is at 1080p? The new entry level gopro is £20 more, also worth considering

Wasp is the manufacturer.

If the lidl camera gives the same results as in that video then this is a good buy. I've had a few cameras in this price range that simply can't handle the shift from light to dark enviroments.

quite a few vids on youtube like this below

Yup - I can't help but think I'd spend another £15-20 to get the big name entry level GoPro.

is the go pro cam only? might be a bit more than £20 by the time you buy mounting, housing, etc.

Not sure about mount, but it has a built in housing and battery, and is also waterproof. Just an alternative for folks, as it is compatible with all of the standard gopro paraphernalia

The GoPro doesn't have WiFi though

Looks good

Can this be mounted in Car at all?

Looks good for those of us who don't want to spend a fortune due to little use. WiFi is good at this price.

yes you could mount in car, cycle, motorcycle, on a helmet.
you will not be disappointed with this camera.

Just don't crash with this on

search for jamie catchpole on you tube thats me and there are 2 track day videos using this camera. sorry about sound i have a loud exhaust.

cool

Seriously tempted by this to use on my helmet whilst riding my bike. I can then show the family what I have to dodge on the commute to work!

Is the recording continuous ie does it record over the first clips when it runs out of space on the SD card? Or do you have to delete earlier clips before it records any more?

I use my cam on my commute but alas it has not as yet encouraged better behaviour by drivers. Maybe I should have got one of these more noticeable colourful cams from Lidl instead of an inconspicuous black SJ4000.

On the SJ4000 the recording loops if you set it to cyclic mode, so there is no need to delete old files to make space.

For those who don't need the wifi the SJ4000 is under £50, and the wifi version around £65, but there are a lot of fakes out there so beware who you buy from. I got a genuine one from foxoffer.

Yes but looks a lot like an expensive GoPro to the local scumbags, you'd be better off with something more discrete in case you ever forget to move it from view when parked. Great list of alternatives here: techmoan.com

I use an SJ4000 I don't know whether it's subconscious, but I notice bad driving far more now, watching a recent recording it's shocking how few fake 4x4 indicator lights work.

It is always cyclists who are saying it is great for catching bad driving and what not.

So in the interests of fairness it is also good for catching bad cycling.

You know the failing to give signals, the complete and uncontested blocking of the roads.

The 'how dare you attitude' of cyclists...

And so on.

Let's face it there are some absolutely ridiculous attitudes from the cycling master class out there and to be fair and objective EVERYONE has to be more careful and considerate on the roads.

Cyclists are very vulnerable and therefore other road users must and need to give them more room and consideration. Other road users must indicate and drive past or near a cyclist as if a loved one is on the bike.

But at the same time many many cyclists need to wise up too and be considerate to other motor vehicle users. We all have to share the road. And the attitude of too many cyclists is 'this is my road until I decide to let you use it.'

I don't know what a good solution is but in relation to this camera it is a great product at this price. And contrary to the above comments and support of the camera as an evidence gathering device you will be happily able to use it for recreational purposes also!

You missed out that some of your best friends are cyclists.

I was thinking of ordering the SJ4000 WiFi model from Foxoffer too. Presumably yours was shipped from China. Were you hit by customs charges when it arrived?

I am a driver and a cyclist with many years experience of both so I've seen this from both perspectives. What surprises me is that it is almost always those encased in powerful motor vehicles who complain about cyclists. Pedestrians who are far more vulnerable to cyclists rarely do (unless cyclists mount the pavement). I've had several near misses with pedestrians crossing the road without looking, assuming silence equates no vehicle is coming. Rather than berate their "bad walking" I understand just how vulnerable a pedestrian is to injury when crossing a road. Bad driving injures and kills cyclists but bad cycling does not injure or kill drivers. I feel much safer on the roads driving, than cycling.

But my comment re. the camera was just to point out how it could potentially be useful to a cyclist. Drivers might also benefit from a camera mounted on their dashboard in case they are the victim of other's bad driving/cycling and need to make an insurance claim.

Thanks. Will go ahead and order.

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone had to commute on a bike for a month? There is so much that people who don't ride a bike regularly don't understand; potholes, drainage, debris, vegetation, momentum etcetc. I also don't understand this general hatred towards people when they are on a bike. The fact is there is one less vehicle in your Q of traffic, it's healthy in both body and mind which would benefit so many. Red herrings like helmets, headphones, lights, "road tax" (no such thing), seem to cloud judgement and cause out of proportion moral outrage. A real shame imo. Seems to be the British way to get so angst on the roads, no idea why.

Drivers might also benefit from a camera mounted on their dashboard in case they are the victim of other's bad driving/cycling and need to make an insurance claim.

Just to clarify I have no hatred towards bikes, I do however dislike the attitude of some cyclists. (I also dislike the attitude of many motorists). It is the 'I'm right your wrong' attitude, the attitude of 'I have more right to be on the road that you.' 'I'm an eco warrior, a do gooder, a combating hero.' The road tax cry is folly and rested upon by too many cyclists, yeah ok you don't need to pay tax as you don't cause pollution and so on on... that's grand. But insurance thats a different matter. IMHO cyclists need insurance. This should be absolutely mandatory. It also should be considered that cyclists can be wrong and I'm sure often are.

The items you mention...potholes, drainage, debris, vegetation. These are absolutely hazards and need to be treated as hazards, that means slowing down and being prepared to stop and then negotiate the hazard when it is safe to do so, not just zipping out regardless of who is behind you, beside you, or having any forethought of the consequences.

And just to clarify this isn't a go at every cyclist, it is a fact of life however that people only remember the bad experiences, so every day for a month you could pass 100 perfectly sensible and considerate cyclists, you will tell no one. But the day one pulls out in front of you, scraps down the side of your car, by goodness you will tell the world that's just how it is.

For me personally I have a car, ride a motorcycle and also cycle, but it is fair to say I am a good weather cyclist and have no interest in taking on pot holes, man holes and leaf litter in the wet, for me it is just too dangerous to be on the road on a push bike when the conditions are so poor.

Anyway sorry for the rant, it isn't personal, its just I believe everyone needs to wise up a touch and share the road sensibly, no one has more rights than anyone else oh and bikes need insurance

That's another pres sorted with luck!thank you!:)

You can buy the new Gopro for £99.99 in Argos add something for 1p to get the £10 voucher, worth considering as an alternative. I've had no problems with Silvercrest in the past but Gopro is undeniably the biggest brand in action cameras.

Valid point (maybe I'm exceptional in that I stop at red lights, wear reflective clothing and use lights at night - probably because I take my boys out on rides a lot, you get into the habit of being squeaky clean as far as behaviour), reviewing my camera footage after rides, and I've probably got footage of around 200 miles of cycling, I was quite surprised to capture cyclists waiting at lights and indicating, because the general opinion seems to be no cyclists stop. More worrying was the number of drivers failing to indicate, running red lights (had one this morning, between posting the first message and now) and driving without side lights when street lighting was on.

I use my camera mainly to show my boys how to behave when cycling, the quality is good enough to view way into the distance and teach them about anticipating other road and pavement users, how you can tell a driver is turning, even if not indicating (on quiet roads drivers seem to forget to indicate) and generally anything that is useful to learn.

But the real eye opener is the quality of these cameras under water, I reckon my little SJ4000 has better images under water than my expensive Panasonic video camera ever managed not in water. Just make sure the one you get is a true 1080P and not some fake, of which there are many.

Compared to GoPro, this camera should be at least as good as their new cheaper model, but WiFi to me is a bit of a gimmick, so I'd probably go for the SJ4000 without.
