WiFi SJ4000 Waterproof Camera half price £26.51 from EUBanggood.com NOT SJCAM

27
Found 3rd Jan 2015
I was browsing Banggood EU website and they have a clearance sale with lots of items half price using code EU0505.

This is NOT the SJCAM SJ4000 and seems to have mixed reviews.

Might be worth a punt at £26.51 for the camera if it does everything it says but likely it is a fake/copy that fails later down the line.

I am not sure now but does anyone own this camera or had experience with it and could maybe share information/advice?

Anybody used the site before? I'm very tempted to buy but have no idea if the site is trustworthy
The link goes to one that is not an original SJcam Wifi SJ4000. You can't use the voucher with the original SJcam.
Just bought it. first time using this site but notice a lot of users here used it without problems. Also i paid with paypal so i am covered in case of a bad experience

This camera is not the SJCAM Sj4000 as littlesos has pointed out. I am going to cancel my order as I should have read the description as it does state this. It is frustrating that they use the same name as I thought it was a bargain but too good to be true and all that.

If you do want to go ahead jeremyhurley type in EU0505 in the checkout page under the coupons section.

Sorry I will edit this post so not to dupe anyone.
Thanks for the heads up, I won't bother ordering!

Good site.

Looks like you can't cancel your order once it has gone through. I am in two minds whether to keep it or send it back. Feel confident that I am protected with paypal and as it is EU website there is the distance selling regulations to fall back on. I have been trying to find reviews or assessments on the camera but sadly can't seem to get anything clear. If it works out okay I might just use it as a dashcam as it seems suitable for this but not 100%.

On getting to checkout enter code EU0505
The problem with these copies is you never know what sensor is in them, the cheap makes like xi mi n Sjcam etc all use ok/good sensors so u know the quality won't be too bad after a little adjustment but this could have the same sensor as the £10 eBay cameras or even a decent one like the xi mi (doubtful though).

Lots of these copies on eBay … Lots of these copies on eBay cheaperhttp://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/161834331446




Got a copy of a Ferrari on my drive, just need to peel the Dacia badges off and you would never know. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR when it comes to cheap knock-offs of cheap knock-offs I always find.
Ordered as a spare cam for use with my quads . Reviews not so good though . But ,at £26 not much to lose .
I still have all the accessories from my bricked original SJ4000 including battery's and charger , so hopefully they may fit this fake.
I've got an sj can off that site and it all look genuine to me. Checked out the copies on YouTube but you can tell the fakes as they don't have the correct software.

Wow that is cheap (nicely under import limit for tax) and probably worth it as a spare just to get battery, case, fixings etc. However I don't think the camera has wifi and they aren't clear about the video resolution, so maybe not such a good camera.

I bought a genuine SJCam from Banggood in 2014 for a ski trip last January. Didn't find out until I went that it was faulty!! I had a major pain getting it replaced... The customer service was terrible, having to email them many times and speaking to a different person every time. They insisted I filmed the problem and sent it to them. Eventually after finding their Facebook page and posting on there someone finally got on the case and agreed to exchange it BUT only if I paid to return the faulty one!! Another post on Facebook and they agreed to send a new one and didn't want the faulty one returned in the end. (In fairness to them, this was all happing in February which is the Chinese New Year so that may have played a part in their poor service)
I don't think there are any poor chipsets that have WiFi -- so this should at least be a genuine 1080p. Plus Banggood are relatively reputable and don't sell the really bad stuff.

The £15 clones are utter sh*te. 640x480 sensor and GeneralPlus, 720p chipset that interpolates a cropped 640x360 up to the 720p. The 1080p side is an out-and-out lie as the chipset doesn't even support the 1080p interpolated, it just records at 720p interpolated when you select the 720p option in the menu.

This kind of crap is fine when you're paying £5 for a cheap dashcam but is unusable on something like this.

Don't know if it will be comparable quality to this one or not, and the seller isn't reputable enough to post as a deal on HUKD. But here is a Wifi model for a tenner: ebay.co.uk/itm…974

Hmmm seems a bit too cheap and only 5 people having given feedback. Also -
Postage: Free Services from outside UK. Item location: London, Surrey, United Kingdom! Oh well maybe worth a go. What's the worse that can happen. It might even turn up.

Yeah feedback history is on random things over the past few years, suggesting private seller. And then suddenly lots of these, so realistically I see two possibilities. Either their account has been stolen and eBay will probably shut them down before long, then you have to wait out the delivery time to claim back or push them for a faster resolution which is a hassle, either way you would get the money back. Or someone found a cheap source of these and is drop-shipping them as a test run to possibly trying to start their own business. Either way, nothing really to lose, except of course either time or a tenner if it arrives and is absolute horse-manure. There may be other possibilities as well, but these are the likely two I can think of.

Did you order one? I did and I've had an email to say it's shipped. Listing is however now removed due to 'listing error'. Probably realised listed too cheap. Either seller is doing the decent thing and sending out the ones ordered at a loss, or just saying he's sent them and will then refund the money when we eventually get fed up of waiting for the non-existent item to arrive. We'll see.

I did order one and got the same, seller had sold 20 on 3rd according to their sales history and another 48 on this one before ending the listing. So maybe they are sending them out, only time will tell.
My camera has just arrived from Banggood. Looks an exact copy to my late , deceased original SJ4000 . The old case fits the new cam , hopefully the spare batteries will to. I'm certainly not expecting a top quality camera but for the money it's not bad .
I didn't like the SJ4000 ,it was used on my quadcopter and on certain views the horizon was circular ,I know the earth is not flat.....................but this isn't as bad on my Runcam.
Good find ,cheers OP .

update: Just tried it , very good I must say , quality looked as good as my SJ4000 . A very wide angle ,good clear picture indoors . You can zoom in to the image which gets rid of the circular edge but naturally the picture is grainy once zoomed . Sadly the battery bay is a tad smaller than the SJ4000 so my spare battery's don't fit but still overall a good buy .

I received my camera today and it appears that it is the genuine SJCAM SJ4000 Wifi model.

If you have an original SJ4000 model there should be a serial number sticker in the battery bay . At least there is with mine ,although it 'bricked' after I did a firmware update using a file from the SJ4000 website .
My new cheapy camera has no sticker but is almost identical , picture quality looks the same .
