SJCAM M10 Firmware Download. The SJCAM M10 color rendering is relatively natural in daylight, with a somewhat too high contrast in my eyes. In the dark, the Actioncam has more often problems with the white balance, where the picture in my interior often too warm and outside then too cold. Compared to other cheap actioncams, I found the brightness transition from dark to light pleasantly fluid here, and I also noticed occasionally that it overexposed a bit. The footage is still sharpened a little too much for my taste at the lowest softening level. If it gets a bit dark, the picture also starts to get a lot of noise and the internal noise reduction causes many details to be lost. But this is due to the size of the sensor and not better with comparable cameras. Even more expensive models have the same problems in the dark.

Beautiful and remarkable is the integrated digital stabilization by means of "gyrosensor". Hereby, the cam also records the wobbling movements at the same time as the recording and then stabilizes the video material with them. Since the whole thing is digital, you lose a little bit of wide angle and the camera zooms in on the video a bit to have enough room for mending the jerks. Overall, I would call the picture as very useful, although of course you can not price-based comparison with the current GoPros pull. These have bitrates around the 60Mbit/s compared to the 14Mbit/s of the M10 + in the details much higher-quality recordings to offer. Especially at faster pans noticeable (washed out, block-like artifact formation).

Since the cam seems to have limitations in terms of maximum data rates, I advise you to make the lowest possible compression and few artifacts unnecessarily high settings, if you do not want to use them. Means: If you do not want to use slow motion and the image output should be normal FullHD, synonymous "only" 1080p at 30B/s to choose. In my experience, the camera is the least s.einen limits and although only synonymous with ~ 15Mbit / s on, but the image looks much cleaner than at 60B/s and relatively low 20Mbit/s seen.

For photos, I would not recommend the Cam. These are much worse and blurred than my four year old smartphone. For reminders and photos in action-packed situations, however, it may be enough. In addition to the already mentioned underwater housing can be found in the scope of delivery a few more practical parts. These are well made and compatible with the usual GoPro accessories. For attachment to discs or on the body by means of headband or chest band, however, one would still need accessories like the one from this set. Due to the simple WLAN connection, price-convincing picture and material quality as well as the compatibility with the usual GoPro accessories, I can recommend the M10 + so far with pleasure.
