    When you look on the list of resolutions they have a suffix of either 16:9, 4:3 or SV

    Under V1.20 I see 16:9 and 4:3, but nothing like SV, per se.

    It’s definetly there, my video posted a few posts back was shot in it. V1.18 or possibly 1.20.

    Maybe .18, which was/is a beta (for all intents an purposes, if not in name). But definitely not in .20, which AFAIK, is a production release. V1.21r2 (is there an r3 or later?) is no end of buggy. At least for me.

    ADDED: I stepped through all of the resolution options. Nada.

    Hmmm... I have a "road trip" coming up later today. I guess I'll see what r2 does with 4K. 1080@60 crashed too often.

    ??? I am perplexed. I scrolled through .20 looking for SV's and came up empty. They are certainly there now. Baffled is the least of it. ???

    I'm still puzzled about why I didn't see them when I scrolled the resolutions earlier. NTL they're certainly present in the latest 1.20 load.

    so.. i just got two replys from 'SJCAM.US' on youtube where i asked about the release date of the sj8 pro . 'some time after the Chinese New Year holiday....' and 'maybe still 2 months....'

    i dont know how serious i/we should take that but since this is a puplic comment, i thought a share here could interesst someone


    and i have to say again, i really hope that the sj8 pro will be a good camera with a superview mode like gp.. if only there were a way to be beta tester or something..

    please dont mess this up, this is a huge benefit and probably the reason/selling point for some to buy gp cams. even if they do not care about the costumer, just about money.. (3th party batteries blocked after release, bulky way overpriced external mic adapter, login/ gps needed for app to get user data..etc)

    There's no release date yet. SJCAM is sorting out everything first. :)

    Today GearBest notified me that the SJ8 is already available to purchase. What does it mean? Has the official release of the camera already happened?

    I think it was said it would launch after CNY, but i did not expect it to be so literal.

    Now i am stressing over seeing some footage soon.

    Um... Gearbest has been showing SJ8 pictures for many weeks, long after other sites pulled those pictures.

    I hope these cameras come out within the next few weeks! I want to buy them before I go on vacation.

    As of email with SJCam yesterday, I doubt the camera will be released that quickly. I'll be very happy to find out otherwise, of course. Take an SJ7 on your vacation and upgrade later.

    That was my backup plan. I currently have the 4000wifi version and the 5000X. I'll most likely go with the 7star

    Yes Sj7 Star will be a safe bet, only problem i had with mine are due to weather ( no 2017 summer and a lot of work for a person my age and health helping family and friends ) is that i have not gotten the chance to use it as much as i would have liked to.
