After going to the video and camera presentation at the 2015 expo, and approaching my C license at the time, i started looking at cameras. On the recommendation of the guy who did the presentation (whos name i forget, im useless with names, so if i ever remember yours, youre honoured lol), i got the SJcam 5000. Identical specs as the highest spec gopro at the time (i think it was the hero4), but a better quality lense.
The picture quality is amazing, and im more than happy with it for what i paid for it
the battery life seems to really suck
Yesterday during 3 jumps i went through 3 batteries, and recorded a total of 22 seconds of footage of the back of someones head as the door was being opened
all of these batteries were fully charged about 2 weeks ago
I had even bought 2 higher capacity batteries and a seperate charger, as have suspected for a while the batteries are up to something, and my next plan is fo fully charge every one the night before jumping to see how they fare
If they let me down next time, im going to be looking at getting a new camera, but, i dont want to spend a fortune. I know gopro released a £99 camera about a year ago, i can find results about it in google, but nowhere selling it, does anyone know anything about these cameras
Or, could anyone recommend something for around £100, with good battery life, or do you think its possible that i just have 2 packs of naff batteries for my current camera?
