Will SJCam offer this?
May I know where are you using the extension cable?
If you mean AV cable for FPV, then it is offered at SJCAM store:
Analog TV cable is also available, If your TV has no HDMI ports:
No, I mean WIFI extension cable.
Wifi cuts off when the unit or the smartphone is submerged underwater.
A physical line is necessary for the signal to travel from the camera (wet end) to the phone (dry end).
I see another competitor brand offer it.
I want to use the cam to observe fish in a submerged cages.
How about this?
Then I just misunderstood your camera model, because there are different models SJ4000 and SJ4000 WiFi.
@Sulev: I am using an SJ4000 WIFI.
My concern is that when I bring it underwater, there is no more Wifi connection.
I need to have a continuous WIFI connection to observe the fish under water and a WIFI extension cord can help me do that.
Now, I was asking if SJCAM will also offer the WIFI extension cord as it is available in another action cam brand.
Is that clear now?
@Nianeko: Yes, that type of cable. But do you think it can be attached to any action camera?
That cable sounds interesting but how many people would buy it as most of the people wont buy action cameras and use its wifi functionality just to observe a fish. But who knows, maybe SJCam can think about creating one. Im sure SJcam will release more cameras and accesorries soon. Just keep visiting the SJCam Official Store
It does not compromise the use of the action cam for other purposes as the cable can be detached.
So I think it will be a plus on the usability side of Wifi action cams rather than a minus.
Yes, that cable should work with any action camera with WiFi.
Yes, I agree to that. Like I said, we have no idea yet at this time, maybe SJCam would think about it and offer that type of cable in the future.
It was clear already yesterday. I just explained, why I read your thread heading as "Extension cable for SJ4000 WiFi"
There is DIY video, but in Japanese.
You can do it on the cheap yourself if you want.
