SJCAM M20 WiFi Action Camera Sport DV Recorder

SJCAM is a well known brand for sports lovers with models like the SJ5000X that could face the GoPro proposals, with a very similar image quality and functions without forgetting the really competitive price. One of the most copied brands and that every few months bring us new products like today, the SJCAM M20. You will not find a sports camera with 4K recording so complete and also very cheap.


It seems that SJCAM wants to dissociate itself from those qualifications such as ‘the copy of the GoPro ‘, betting on a new design that departs from previous versions of the brand. To begin, we leave behind the ‘horizontal’ model to bet on a repositioning of all the elements in ‘vertical’. With the previous version of the range, the M10 , we already had a very original cube design that other manufacturers have used.

The SJCAM M20 presents somewhat atypical measurements for what we are used to by choosing its design, 54 x 40 x 23.65 mm and a weight of 54 grams (39 grams without the battery). Better figures than for example the SJ5000X Elite with 74 grams or the M10 of 64 grams. The SJCAM M20 is smaller and lighter than the SJ4000 and SJ5000 range, which makes it ideal for placing it in drones or radio controlled cars.


The new design has not prevented to integrate a 1.5-inch LCD screen to see the image in real time as well as consult our contents or navigate between the different configuration options, something that models like the Xiaomi Yi do not incorporate having to use a tablet or smartphone. As for buttons, we have the traditional on, capture, address – volume and WiFi; Notification LED, speaker and microphone, not forgetting connections like the microUSB charging, microHDMI and microSD card slot up to 32 GB. The SJCAM M20 is available in 7 colors, made of plastic pleasant to the touch and with slots on the sides to improve grip.

Use for drones. If you are passionate about drone flight , I am sure that more than once you would have liked to record your flights but the weight of certain cameras completely prevents it. The SJCAM M20 is one of the lightest cameras on the market, with its weight of 54 grams is far below the GoPro Hero 4 with its 84 grams. A lower weight means more flight autonomy of your drone, a really important factor. Autonomy of up to 80 minutes for your recordings.


Wrist control Optionally, we can acquire a wrist remote control for our SJCAM M20 integrating the main functions of the camera through different buttons. This controller is splash proof, connected via Bluetooth with the camera and is one of the main novelties of the camera. A selfie stick with the same type of controller on the handle and Bluetooth connectivity has also gone on sale. A very interesting accessory that goes around 10 – 15 euros for the bracelet and 20 euros for the suit.

Dashcam. In Gizlogic we’ve already talked about dashcam, these little devices that capture everything that happens on the road and that many videos are leaving on the network. Attach the camera to the dashboard of your vehicle and do not worry about its operation thanks to the ‘car mode’, the camera will turn on at the same time as our vehicle. In addition we will not have to worry about the autonomy of the 900 mAh battery, since we can record while charging the battery.
