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.
Gizchina News of the week
Pricing hasn’t been announced but both models come with plenty of mount options for fitting to your helmet, chest or anywhere else you plan to made a video from.
More details can be found over on the Blackview website.
you can buy this on efox.com.pt, i bought my there last week
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…
This camera can record 1280 * 720 120fps?
