    I've had this one for 2 years now and really like it. I just drilled a hole in 2 caps, 1 camo and 1 orange to mount a bolt to the camera through the tripod hole and use when for moose hunting and waterfowl hunting. It's a great little camera. Only draw back is the battery is only good for about 2 hours...

    I have a Go pro hero 3+ Black but I think I am going to buy one or 2 for different views. I'll have my GP for main views and use this one for back up/less important views, it aint no GP but for the price its pretty close

    The beauty of the SJ4000 is that you can switch the batteries on it… so, you can buy extra batteries (I order an extra one) and switch them out if you're running low… I think I paid $8 for the extra...

    Hoping to post a report on it one I get it….

    Splaker,

    Is there a model that you are not able to do this on? I ask, because the way your post reads, (whether intentionally, or not) is worded as such that it would indicate, you can't do this on other cameras. Just curious as to which ones?

    As splaker mentioned, I can't do it with my polaroid. It's about the only reason I would consider a second camera. Having said that, the camera switches on and off within a few seconds so I tend to use it as needed and battery isn't too much of a concern.

    I did try to film a couple of waterfowl hunts but watching a few hours of video and trying to figure out where 30 seconds of shooting footage was is not an enjoyable task...

    Ah thanks Jeff, I just saw the good for 2 hours portion, but I didn't see where it made mention that you couldn't actually change it.

    I wonder if the GP batteries and the SJ batteries are interchangable, I have 10 batteries now for my GP's as you can get really good sales on the Digi Power version, can get 2 batts, and wall charger, or charger and a bat, they have all kinds of combo's that come on sale, so I grab them when I see them.

    I still haven't got through all of the 2012 season footage. About 1TB, with 95% of it being scrap in the end.
