I see there is no HDMI port on the sj8. How do we connect it to a television?
Type C to RCA Cable for YI 4K+ can be use as SJ8 Video Out Cable.
･Must enter FPV mode, and exit before power off
Lack of HDMI port is the biggest drawback of latest series. The FPV over RCA cable can't deliver even FHD quality, forget about 4K. The camera feels so crippled without fast and convenient connectivity option with modern high resolution TV-s.
Not sure why they would eliminate a HDMI port. I guess the best bet would be to transfer sdcard to a mobile phone and project video to a HD tv . Or I may use my sjcam 5 elite to connect to hdmi port. I will test both and give news …
I also see a usb-c connector to a HDMI connector cable. Would this work? They call it alt-mode. Standard created in 2016.
SJCAM is using different pinout than standard USB-C alt-mode. Standard adapters will not work with SJCAM cameras.
What were they thinking … Makes no sense..
Last night I took out the sd card and placed it in my phone . I cast casted the video to my television . Worked well, but a pain to go through this process.
