    I just purchased an SJ8 Pro off of ebay and I can't really get it to do anything... I'm using a Samsung 128gb EVO Plus micros sd. I have updated the firmware to 1.2.4 but it still just freezes whenever I try to record anything. I have gotten it to record 2 videos at 1080 30fps but every other time I've tried at this setting it just froze. Any other resolution or frame rate just causes the screen to go black or the camera to freeze or a combination of both. The ebay seller won't take it back either... What do I do? Did I just pay $225 on a paperweight? I'm EXTREMELY disappointed by this device....

    I would try another sd card just to be sure. Also a different f/w. I'm on 1.2.5 and it seems to work fine now but they took it down so not sure where you'd get it...

    Thank you Becker! I switched out the memory card for a smaller one (32GB) and it did the trick! I truly appreciate the help.
