New SJCAM SJ8 Series Action Cameras

A while ago there were rumors that the SJCAM is developing a new SJ8 action camera. It has now been revealed by PoshGadgets that SJCAM is actually creating a series. The new SJ8 line will consist of 3 different action cameras, all of which have their own pros and cons. The most notable out of the 3, is the SJ8 Pro version, which is rumored to have a native 4K resolution at 60fps. Which should definitely be enough to compete with latest additions from Xiaomi and GoPro!

As of now, there is no information about the release date yet. We do however have the technical specifications of all of the 3 action cameras.

The two action cameras I’m most interested in are the Pro and Plus. Especially the Plus as it can easily be the next best bang for buck action camera available as it also comes with a native 4K resolution now. Either way, hopefully we will have more information regarding the release date and pricing soon. Oh and for pictures, you can
