Meet SJCAM M20 Mini WIFI 4K Action Camera

SJCAM M20 features a Sony IMX lens, 4K recording, image stabilisation, a 30m waterproof diving case, 16MP camera stills & gyro stabilisation as standard.SJCAM M20 action camera is an ideal digital camera for daily use or traveling: use it  when you are surfing, diving, snorkeling, biking or driving. Mount it on the car when you are driving down a scenic road and record your adventure! It is perfectly sized, both portable and mountable. It’s the action cam for sports fan or anyone who wants to record stunning footage. Everyone can use the 4K camcorder to capture video and pictures to share the fun with family and friends. WiFi Function and 2.4G remote – enables you to self-capture in a more convenient way. It’s never been easier to share your life with the world.

SJCAM M20 features gyro video stabilization that can produce a very stable video image. With the 166 degrees lens, the sports camera can retain more realistic scene and captures more immersive and wide-angle videos and photos. The equipped processor will provide you with 4K / 24fps video resolution. Who does not need a 4K camera that also offers the option to shoot in Full HD 1080p with 60pfs?

This vertical portrait layout makes holding the M20 with one hand feel more natural and theirs less chance of covering up the lens with your fingers. The ridged plastic grip and soft touch front give the M20 a premium feel whilst improving the overall grip.

The button placement on the M20 is intuitive and easy pick up. Along the top of the device is the power button (also back) and record (also select) whilst along the side, we have up and down arrows to navigate through the options.

Thanks to the clever placement of buttons you can access all of the device features & settings directly from the camera using the crisp 1.5″ onboard display. This display also acts as a digital viewfinder so you can line up your shots and play back videos on the fly.

Overall I’ve been really impressed with the design and build quality that SJCAM have put into the M20. The screen resolution is high enough to produce a clear viewfinder, the build quality is excellent.

Record every wonderful moment in your life. Enjoy your crazy and lifeful youth, just go and do it.
