Mine are looking like a month for delivery!

What editing software does everyone use to upload the card and do any editing required?

I remove the card from the camera and copy the files to the PC.

If you time your turn on and off of the camera well you often don't have to edit it. However you can use Microsoft Movie Maker which is quite simple to use and is free (and already included in Windows) but there are lots of other programs for editing. I use Adobe Premiere Elements 12.

Or if you have data overlays you use RaceRender or similar to edit and overlay.

It is best to have a look on the internet and see what is the best settings to use for each program as it is very easy to produce a crap looking video due to having the wrong encoding settings etc...

I just use RaceRender for all vids now (even without data overlays) .... find it quicker and easier than others.

Sony Vegas Pro is good, but takes a while to get to grips with and is MASSIVE program.

If I'm doing something with slow-mos I'll prob use the standard issue GoPro CineForm. Its a bit slow and buggy but does something well enough

RaceRender is good. If often just use that too for a simple edit. Although it is 30 for the full version of RaceRender so IMO it is only worthwhile buying it if you have data overlays to add.

Ahhaha- I have one of them (harness, not the exact same one) but its not a great fit for the BrunoBeast. Its the largest possible to fit his chest and neck but is too big to fit other parts Laughing

The one you linked has more supports/straps though, so may be better Smile

I'm not sure how many videos of dogs sniffing other dogs arses I could watch before the novelty wears off.

Have I mentioned my Corrado is for sale?

Well that's the kit all here.



In the process of dropping the gearbox to swap for the SR box so will get the camera setup next.



At least you got the proper SJCam SJ4000, I think that was a wise move. My Sj4000 copy arrived today. It looks the same but most importantly it is missing the car mode. I am going to see if I can update its firmware.

Pic of the box:




So my mega cheap one arrived. It is an SD28 rather than a Sj4000. It lacks the car mode function Sad

Yeah I read a few reviews and decided the extra cash was worth it for the hassle that the copies could cost.

It's laughable really that mine is still a copy of the gopro but even it is now being copied.

I am a little disappointed however if you don't want the car function then the camera is worth the 17 I paid, well 34 as I bought two of them. I am still trying to find a work around.


The real SJ4000 wifi can be bought for 33. I'll end up getting one of these instead.
