HuiHeng SJ9000 Ultra Wide Angle lens WiFi Waterproof Sports Camera Review – Settings menu #2.

– DATE STAMP: Off (Default), or On.

This either enables or disables a time and date stamp on images or video recorded.

– MOTION DETECTION: Off (Default) or On.

Quite honestly, this is another feature I can think of little use for, unless the camera is externally powered even with the reduced power consumption of not constantly recording it is still not going to last much longer than recording constantly. As for the argument of conserving memory card space, this is a non issue as a 64GB card is capable of recording approximately 7 hours of footage using the SJ9000.

– GYRO RSC: Off (Default) or On.

When GYRO RSC is enabled no matter how the HuiHeng SJ9000 action camera is orientated whether upside down or on its side the lens always records footage as if the camera were orientated the correct way round and the view screen on the rear does the same. As the GoPro mount on the waterproof case is only on the underside sometimes it is only possible to mount the camera upside down, such as when mounting on a car windscreen and enabling this option will ensure the footage is recorded the correct way around when the camera is mounted either on its side or upside down.

– IMAGE SIZE: 16MP (4608×3456), 14MP (4320 x 3240), 12MP (4032 x 3024), 10MP (3648 x 2736), 8MP (3264 x 2448), 5MP (2592 x 1944), 3MP (2048 x 1536) or VGA (640 x 480).

This sets the quality of pictures taken.

– SEQUENCE: Off (Default), 3 Sequences, 5 Sequences, 10 Sequences.

This is a burst mode for taking still images, when set to off when the shutter button is pressed a single still image is taken. When set to 3 sequences, 3 images are taken in less than 2 seconds, when set to five, 5 images are taken in less than 3 seconds and when set to 10 sequences, 10 images are (supposed to be taken).

There are some problems, however when using the burst or as the SJ9000 likes to call is sequence mode. When set to 10 sequences the camera only took 6 images and then locked up with the HUD or overlay disappearing from the rear screen. All buttons became unresponsive and in the end, I had to switch the camera off to regain control at which point it was found that only 6 images had been taken.

– CAPTURE MODE: Single (Default), 2s Timer, 5s Timer, 10s Timer and 20s Timer.

This mode is more often called timed or time delay mode. When set to single, a single image is taken when the shutter button is pressed, when set to 2s, 5s, 10s or 20s Timer there is a 2, 5, 10 or 20 second countdown between the time the shutter button is pressed and a photo is taken (This can be used in conjunction with sequence mode to set the camera to take 5 images after a 5 second delay for example).

Something offered with previous cameras that I have reviewed, although not evident with the SJ9000 is a continuous time delay. This constantly resets the timer so when set to 5 seconds and the shutter button is pressed it will take an image every 5 seconds until the shutter button is pressed a second time, which can be very useful if you fluff the first shot or want a series with different poses for example. Odd that a camera with such extensive settings options lacks this feature.
