QUMOX SJ5000+ Action Camera Review




QUMOX SJ5000+ Action Camera Review

I have been using the Qumox SJ5000+ wifi action camera for 6 weeks since I purchased it from Amazon. These are my initial impressions and some of the good and bad points I have found. One thing I don’t mention is the wifi part of the camera. When I bought it I assumed this would mean I could download videos to my pc via wifi. In fact it is a facility to connect to a smart phone so you can watch what the camera is capturing (I think). I don’t (won’t) have a smart phone so that facility is of no use to me. I wish now I had just bought the SJ5000+.

Good points: Low price, neat design, full HD quality, battery life (now), accessories, time-lapses

Bad points: Manual, firmware update problem, unable to set to PAL, highlight blow-out problems, file numbering system

As I mention in the video, I have sent an email to Qumox support about some of the issues but so far I have not had a reply. When I do I will probably do a quick update video.

I have never used a Gopro so I cannot comment on how this compares.

If you have any comments or suggestions please feel free to share them.


I have been asked to return the camera for replacement as it seems that some of the above problems may be due to an internal wiring issue. I will keep this updated.

Update to update

The camera was replaced and now works fine
