A lot of people have been saying they were unable to get a 64mb micro sd / sdhc / sdxc card to work in the SJ5000+ sports action camera. Indeed the manufacturer website even states that max supported memory is 32gb. There is however a workaround which will have you up and running with a 64gb card in less than 5 mins. First off, update your firmware! The latest version is v2.6 and can be obtained here: http://www.sjcamhd.com/news/sj5000plus-v2-4-version-firmware-download/. Be sure to download the correct version for your camera and follow the installation instructions carefully. After successfully completing the firmware update and ensuring the camera is functioning correctly, take your new 64gb card, connect it to your PC using a card reader. Next point your browser to Ridgecrop Consultants and download their GUIformat utility. Open the file, be sure to select the correct drive letter for your memory card. Leave the allocation unit size as the default 32,768 and check 'quick format' if not already checked. Click start and within a few seconds your card will be ready. (Be aware that this action will wipe all files currently on the card) When it has finished formatting you can return the card to the camera and it will register as 64gb and you'll be ready to start shooting.
If you want to capture your moves in stunning HD to share with the world, there are no shortage of small, lightweight, impact resistant video cameras claiming offer every feature you might need. The king of the sports action camera has to be the GoPro. This was the first brand to really capture the market and offer a device which was not only very sturdy but also with image quality and frame rates to rival more serious camera equipment. Great though they are, the go-pro comes at a price and while there are basic versions available, a half decent Hero 3+ Black or Hero 4 will set you back at least £250. Take a quick look on ebay and you'll be presented with hundreds of cheap go pro alternatives, some for as little as a tenner. However once you look past the appealing headlines, the technical spec tends to be a little less desirable and one would be advised to steer well clear. One manufacturer which stands out from the crowd is SJCAM. They have created a range of cameras which bear a remarkable similarity to the Go-Pro, but without the hefty price tag. Their flagship product is the SJ5000+ which is based on the same Digital Signal Processor (DSP) made by Ambrella as is used in the go pro. This makes it directly comparable to the Hero 4 silver and offers all the same features minus the touch screen and 4k recording. For many this wont be an issue as the touch screen is inaccessible through the waterproof case and 4K screens are still owned by a minority. The SJ5000+ can record a maximum of 60fps @ 1080p or 120fps at 720p which is [...]
Last Thursday we were visited by Sam of sofadodger.co.uk. She visited our flagship Street Motion Academy of Parkour & Freerunning in Exeter as part of her mission to try 100 sports/fitness classes in the space of 12 months. Despite arriving with a lower back sprain and a fear of heights she gave it 110% and can now tick another sport off the list. "When I declared to my family at tea time, that I was going to Exeter to try parkour, my children sniggered. The fact that Olly at seven then preceded to beg me if he could come as well, made me worry that this might be more his thing than mine. Parkour or freerunning, is essentially a way of getting from A to B by running, jumping and if you like, adding some tricks. You can see it in music videos, where cool, fit looking people run across buildings, jumping over stairwells and anything else, which gets in their path. To watch it is pretty awesome, so although I was eager to see it in real life, I was pretty daunted at the prospect of trying it myself."
