The SJ9 Series. All New SJCAM Superpowers.
The up-and-coming SJ9 Series, namely the SJ9 Strike and SJ9 Max, has been stirring up some commotion in the action camera market since the release of the photo below, and here’s why. Although it is an openly welcome idea to get better and better with resolution and framerates, SJCAM has been focusing on delivering more than just that.
It Will Be Waterproof Right Out Of The Box.
The recent announcement that the new action camera series will be waterproof right out of the box is a big win for those wanting an integrated dive-housing. Unlike previous SJ models, you can go straight into the pool with it, record videos, take photos, all without having to attach anything else.
Sure you will still need a separate housing for much deeper than snorkeling dives, but for almost everyone else, this is more than enough. For scuba divers, of course, a separate waterproof housing for greater depths is needed, allowing the camera to go as deep as 30 meters.
You Can Record Supersmooth Stable Videos.
We all know that having a gimbal is imperative if you want to keep the camera rock-solid steady. Gone are those days where action is best captured with a shakey footage, as it adds to the drama of spontaneity and just being in the moment. The norm these days are buttery-smooth camera movements that seem to glide through the air. But can you do this without having to purchase a separate device?
Now, with the SJ9 Strike, SuperSmooth is made possible through its 6-axis gyro sensors coupled with the technical wizardry of software. Now video footages feel as though the camera is riding on rails!
You Can Now Wirelessly Charge Your Camera.
The first action cameras to employ wireless charging, the SJ9 Series, takes centerstage when it comes to features.
You can now charge your camera just by simply putting it on top of a charging cradle. This is a huge convenience when you consider the hassle of opening a port door and plugging a cable through it with wet hands.
SJCAM made sure that even with the Wireless Charging capability, you can still charge your SJ9 as normal using a USB-C cable. The battery is, as with all other SJCAM models, user-replaceable for those times when you just need to switch between batteries.
There Will Be More SJ9 Series News Coming.
These are all that we can report for now, more announcements will be made regarding capabilities and features in the next couple of days. The SJ9 Series will start shipping in the first or 2nd week of May 2019.
Soon, the official SJCAM webstore will accept preorders. Keep posted here, we will update this post the soonest we have additional news. Join us on Facebook and Instagram!
