  • YAGOO7 Novatek NT96660, Sony IMX078, (new Extral SJ8000 clone)

    Basically, I'm trying to find the lowest priced Novatek SoC based camera that produces some decent and satisfactory video and audio. So far I think the Firefly 7s (with a firmware update) is the best contender.

    Anyway, now I'm trying this SJ8000 clone, the YAGOO7 from a seller on Aliexpress. Item link - , or search "YAGOO7 action camera" on site. It's ~$49 USD or more if you choose different package options. There is even a series of YAGOO 6 / 7 / 8 single and dual screen cameras on Aliexpress. There is also a YAGOO7 R remote version. I'm lucky to get a 100% fully working camera. (hey, the Extral SJ8000 I received months ago had terrible focus for far objects, so it is/was unusable, and I'm not so talented to scratch away at the little glue around the little lense). Also, some "SUNGO" brand cameras on Aliexpress are similar.

    The video footage in 1080p 60fps is quite nice for a camera that costs about $50 USD. See unprocessed video samples here -

    I will post more information after some days, but now I have this:

      haha, i didn't notice the IMX117 in the listing, because I've been *reading so many posts of truth from you, AussieKev, DrekiTech and others.

    Yes this appears to be the same cam , At the time I was looking I did notice it for sale at $60ish, I got mine on E-bay for $36, was the cheapest actual correctly described version. There are about 20 others saying you will receive a camera with that same front plate, (24fps, 4k, Fan designed lights) but they all have the specs WRONG... so those would be pigs in pokes, cannot confirm, since I did to dare save another $10 to get the wrong camera. I wanted cheap but not so cheap to know I was getting scammed. He had the RIGHT specs and damn good price.
