The success of GoPro has seen Chinese brands enter the action camera market, from SJCAM to Xiaomi and now Blackview.

Blackview have been slowly building up a more visual presence online with their range of smartphones, and now they have gone out on a limb to take on the action camera market too.

Two models of action camera will be available from the phone maker, both of which appear to be re-branded versions of the popular SJCAM models that have been on sale from China for some time.

Blackview have, dangerously, named their cameras the Blackview Hero 1 and Blackview Hero 2. The Hero 1 a Sony IMX 206 sensor, WIFI, electronic image stabilisation, 1080 video and an f2.0 aperture. The Hero 2 boasts similar specifications with the additional of an included remove with built-in screen with live WIFI preview.

    Which one has better video quality? Hero 1 or Hero 2?

      That’s a good question. I’ve only seen the Hero 1 in comparison to the SJ5000 plus..The SJ5000 + looks better with low light sensitivity. The Hero 2 has an Image Sensor: OV4689 from Omnivision, which is good news…really curious on how it looks. I’m holding off on buying any sports cam right now until I see the difference.

        I like the RF feature on the Hero 2 as sometimes wifi with phones can be unreliable with other products. I’m not sure what the difference with Ambarella A7LS75 or the Ambarella A7LA50 . If anyone knows, I would like to hear

          I gues that someone from gizchina should answer this. They should know the difference if they want to write about it…
