    yesterday I got my hands on Sj6 . Since then I am trying to find the best settings but whatever I do, the quality of the video is Noisy and Crappy.


    I am using the latest firmware .
    Any way fixing it? It is not even close to what I saw on youtube.

    Can you post the mode and the settings you use?
    Kind of hard to guess what is wrong.

    Video looks a bit hazy, only happens when the protective lens sticker is still there. Could you check if there's anything on the lens?

    Hi @ytoldschool
    Please contact Technical Support, go to support.sjcamhd.com or email them through support@sjcamhd.com and have them see this problem.
    It could be a lighting in the room that may be forcing this, if the lens's focus is okay. Still best to contact the support center, so they can check.

    Yeah to document camera performance then you really should do so in good lighting, i often recommend you set up with the camera on something where its steady, and then have something in the footage at different distances to the camera, for instance a car park near some shopping so you have cars at different distances and store fronts at different distances to the camera,,, and them not moving.

    It dont take much in regard to low light before all cameras drop to slow exposure times that are really no good with movement in the footage.

    Wow, that does NOT look right at all. I reverted my SJ6 Legend from 1.4.6 back down to 1.4.3 because in my opinion the image was much sharper and clearer on the 1.4.3 than the newer firmware, plus the gyro function seems to much better with 1.4.3 as well. Hope you get it sorted out.

    Same problem here. Bad quality video. Camera is came to me with 1.4.5 firmware updated to 1.4.6 but didn't change. Bad sharpness video, with noise even in day light condition. Picture is wonderful. The finnest adjust for me is with 1080 60fps resolution, wdr on, gyro off, sharpness strong, fov narrow, distortion off. Becare if you enable distortion correction on the fov doesn't change the angle view. I hope SJ find a solution fast. I read from other users that in firmware 1.4.3 the video quality didn't have problem. Does anyone know how i find the 1.4.3 firmware to download and if i can downgrade the camera?
