Of course, everyone has a fully adequate camera in their smartphone by now. Alternatively, many people also use action cams like the Xiaomi Mijia 4K to keep their smartphone battery power free. Only mini cameras such as the SQ8 are even more space-saving, and the manufacturer has already launched the latest iteration, the SQ11. We’ll show you what you can expect from this upgrade.
The main focus of this camera is of course on size. The edge length of this cube is actually only 2.2 cm per side. Thanks to this compact size, the SQ11 weighs only 18 g and is therefore really light. This corresponds to two 2-Euro coins. The black housing of the camera is interrupted by a rainbow-coloured ribbon. The housing also features an on/off switch and a function key. The camera also offers connectivity via mini-USB port and a microSD card slot with a maximum capacity of 32 GB. Inside, there is a 200 mAh battery that powers the camera and charges it via the USB port.
Since the SQ11 is a camera, the hardware used is of course very interesting. The manufacturer uses the Generalplus1248 chipset, which is also used in Dashcams. As sensor Quelima uses an unspecified CMOS sensor. It resolves with 1.2 megapixels and records videos in Full HD, but only extrapolated. Alternatively, you can only film in native HD resolution. The aperture should be relatively open with f/2.0, which would theoretically suggest a lot of light in low light conditions. With such a small sensor you can’t look forward to great photos in the dark. Nevertheless, the Quelima camera supports a night mode. The shooting angle is 120°.
I think that SQ11 mini camera is very good when it comes to biddable home security cameras. It is ideally a small camera with bigger functional abilities. Two functions that impress me most is the "motion detection" and the "night mode" functions. 120° angle view is massive sufficiently enough for such a tiny device. 100 minutes continues recording time is OK. Ever other thing is excellent. I give 5-star or 10/10
