Downloaded and upgraded. Video still jerky and blurry as heck.
Tried 2kx30 and 1080x24.
Tried Gyro on and off.
Tried bitrate high and normal.
Tried MP3 and MOV.
When I don't move the camera I get a nice clear picture.
When I move the camera I get a video I can't use.
What a waste of time and money.

My fake 'SJ' sj8000 camera takes so much better videos in the same room.
The low and medium bit rate are swapped. Someone else confirmed the bitrate booster is working well...

Bugs:

–very poor german translation:
…make it better –>
Intervallvideo = Zeitraffer
Intervallbild = Timelapse
langsam Recording = Zeitlupe
Fortsetzen = Burst
belichtung = Belichtung
Bewegungserken = Bewegungserkennung or Bewegung or Motion detection
DistortionCorrection = Verzerrung
delaycapture = Verzögerung
PoweronRecord = Autoaufnahme
DoubleFile = doppelte Aufnahme

–solved with v1.3-s Mar142016 : 4K/24P not working in high bitrate
–4K/24P high bitrate only 23 mbits!
–high bitrate setting up to 35 mbits, the microsd can handle it!
–normal and low setting in bitrate is swapped
–distortion correction not working correct when gyro on
–FOV not 170 degrees because of waterproof case makes black vignettes you have decreased
–color normal to cold, warm is right color temperature setting for normal (make the warm setting from now to normal and change the other settings and all is ok)
–saturation a little bit to high or make it selectable (low, normal, high)
–solved with v1.3-s Mar142016:camera wifi is connecting to phone, but the ios app is not working correct (i can connect app , but no action take affect t cam and i cannot see live foto from cam)
–please change german translation thats so creepy!!! (i give you right translation for the faulty expressions)

change logs would be good for every new version!

positive:

–starting in last mode
–options can directly changed in modes (up/down)
–gyro is working better (though the video quality looses a little bit, normal that FOV becomes smaller?)
–WDR is working good in normal light conditions
–not much white hot pixels (only 2-3)

I've just updated mine to 1.4.3 and going to give it a whirl tomorrow as we get a new place after 18 months of waiting :)

New build thanks mate, it seems to have taken forever from us doing the paperwork and it's got a few issues but hopefully we get the keys in a couple of hours :D

I've built before, it's the worst, builders are a nightmare at the best of times

Just downloaded it and yes 24p 4K is recording in high bit rate. Nice! And the quicker options settings! Yes!

-Nate
Glad you are liking the upgrade :)

"Fixes pixels issue when in Delayed Capture, Long Exposure" Sorry but this is not fixed, infact its worse than ever :( I have tested 3 seperate sj5000x elites 1.4.8-s and they all show the same hot pixel issue. We have tried the hotpixel fix 5 times and still its bad. These images were taken in photo lapse long exposure mode 30seconds exposure, ISO 400. Please see attacked images.

Thanks for the feedback. We will relay this to our firmware team and improve in v1.4.9.

Hello,

We have a fix for you.

1) Please power the unit on.
2) Cover the lens with a cloth
3) Press the shutter button down for 3-4 seconds and then the pixel patch will update.

Hope this makes sense. Please let us know if we need to make a video tutorial for you.
