SJCAM release official details of the $149.99 SJCAM SJ5000X Elite action camera with Sony IMX078 sensor, 4K video and Gyro features.

A few days back we reviewed the SJ4000+ Gyro, its a stunning buy for the money and especially impressive since it recorded in 2K, boasted an amazing hardware image stabilisation feature and ships with a box load of useful accessories and attachments.

Next in line and available for pre-order now, is the SJCAM SJ5000X action camera. This new model comes with a similar chassis, is available in bright colours but adds a Sony IMX078 sensor and up to 4K recording to the mix.

The 12 mega-pixel Sony IMX078 is a back illuminated CMOS image sensor with higher pixel counts and sensitivity. The sensor has a pixel size of 1.55 µm and in the SJ5000x can be set to record at wide-angles of 170, 140, 110 and 70 degrees.

A similar hardware gyro is incorporated in to the design for smooth video, so we are looking at an action camera that can record smooth video of up to 4K (interpolated) with richer detail than the already very impressive SJ4000+.

Other details include a new Novatek NTK96660 CPU, WIFI for use with an Android or iOS smartphone, a larger built-in 2-inch display, new burst and timer modes and the same boatload of hardware accessories that shipped with the SJ4000+.
