SJCAM SJ5000x Elite V1.1 Firmware – Download Link


Dear SJCAM SJ5000x Elite Users,


SJCAM has a v1.1 firmware upgrade for the SJCAM SJ5000x Elite Edition Action Camera.

Note: This firmware will not work with the limited edition version.

This release fixes several things namely the yellow tint in pictures and videos when indoors.

This firmware release improves a lot on other aspects as well.

If you received your SJ5000x with V1.0-s firmware, please upgrade your firmware as soon as possible.

      First format the card using Fat32 format. then save the file into the root of the card.

      Then insert the card and power the unit on.

      This should work. If you still do not know how to upgrade, we can make video.

      Hello, Please try Fat32 format for the memory card. this should allow you to upgrade the firmware.

      Regarding the 4K, it is interpolated 4K. The latest version of the firmware if v1.1, but, we should have v1.2 very soon.

  7. Hi. Just bought a sj5000x with version 1.1

    My problem is with other video resolution aside from 1080. Video is dirty, it is like watching from an old VHS or Betamax. Although 1080 works fine
