Or this is the end of SJ7Star support ???
assume it's the end; I don't think SJCAM really cares at this point
Overall, SJCam has gone dark. V1.21 is about as stable as the Unabomber, the camera still cooks batteries to the point of swelling (lost two that way), and the SJ8 remains a YT video about the case with nothing in it. One person reports responses from support over a dead camera. Otherwise... crickets.
I think the v1.21 is the last but sj7 still have many problems with video quality and stability This camera have potential but without long support is just another china commercial experiment and if you want better cam just buy next model. This is sad true
You've got it right. Unfortunately, SJCam seems to be focused on the SJ8.
Nevertheless, when sj7star came out, support for sj6 continued. Why now with the release of 8pro stopped support 7star...
I think you've answered your question. When a new product comes out, there's no product end of life update. SJCam just forgets the product.
In general, this should be no surprise. However, some companies keep older product versions at least minimally supported. The idea is to get customers, at a low price point, who then want to move up to the high end product. That's a sale for the low price unit and a sale for the high end unit. Win-win for the company.
When the Sj7 came out it was also just 1 camera, the 8 series will take a lot of attention, not least as it are build on different chip-sets too where you can take little from one and transfer it to the other.
