    The 1st link that says 1.21 beta firmware is what you want. The second link that says raw converter tool is a tool to convert the raw images taken off the camera.

    The link should take you to a google drive containing a 7z zip file containing the bin files.

    I’d suggest right clicking and choose download file as rather than just downloading. There seems to be an issue with your file associations.

    Or download a 7z unzip utility.

    If you have a google drive you should also be able to go into the folder and download the bin files.

    Hot been able to replicate it yet - tried recordings on both cameras from 30 seconds to 1 hour and haven't had it stall.

    My camera has serial number starting 201701 and is the original layout with the mic on the side
    @RBEmerson has the camera with the mic next to the lens and a serial starting 201705

    Apart from the position of the microphone was anything else changed between these two cameras - any other change to circuitry routing, components, etc that can accont for the fact we get different results?

    It’s an official beta, direct from SJCam.

    There should be a folder named in Chinese, imthere are 2 bin files.

    1.21 is a beta and unstable. V1.21r2 appears to crash at least my camera. If you don't know exactly what to use, please don't use it. V1.20 has everything in !.21 except support for RAW and maybe a couple of bug fixes.

    It doesn't record MOV files. RAW Is for photos and you set it in the photo settings

    Today I shot 5-6 clips with 1080@60 fps, under V1.20, and there were no crashes or problems of any sort. The settings were as listed earlier. BTW, yes, in 1.20, the mic is off but the audio is still on. That's old news but, I think, worth repeating.

    At least here, V1.21r1&2 have both failed during shooting.

    Hi everyone. I updated my sj7 with 1.21. The raw files, are all red color cast... no way to fix the colors in Lightroom or Camera Raw (I'm a professional photographer and shoot raw with my Nikons). What's wrong?

    I don't use Lightroom, I use Darktable but I found that adjusting the levels of red in the White balance works.

    This is a reported problem. Please remember V1.21 is a beta version - no promises anything works.

    Can't wait time for a stable 1.21 update :) I love shooting raw, SJ6 Legend has a very good image quality with this format. :)
