W9 HD sports camera

W9 HD IP68 Waterproof Wi-Fi Sports Action Camera

The market is full of action cameras like the W9 HD, although there are only few image processor (SoC) manufactures. On all these GoPro clones the concept is the same, they put together an imaging processor and a CMOS image sensor on a reasonable looking body. Mainly, the accessory pack is similar and interchangeable between the models.

This new W9 HD action cam is based on the Sunplus 6630M imaging processor and the Aptima CMOS 3MP image sensor, the 12MP photo resolution is achieved with software interpolation.

Through the Wi-Fi connectivity, the W9 camera can be paired with a smartphone (Android or iOS) to frame the shots and share the photos and videos instantly.

With a generous accessory pack this camera is a perfect mate for outdoor sports.

      Sorry, I’m afraid that you can’t do that. The WIFi password is probably fixed by the W9’s manufacturer.

      Thanks for your reply or I be lost. There no video or other info for this action cam. I had to google it to bring me to this page to get the website you wrote down with password was the only way I learned how to configure my Lg g4 cell phone to link through WiFi the action cam and get the download for the scanner to auto download the app to do it with. Now I can use my phone to look through the action cam W9 which being use for my quad-copter.

    I had this camera early this year and just used it once due to the Time Stamp that can’t be removed though it was set to OFF on the settings.
    Anyone here has the same problem?

    When I record from my iPhone it will only record in one minute sections.
    When I record directly from the camera, it records fine.
    Is there a way of fixing this to record everything on one clip on the iPhone

    Thanks for this INFORMATION…Manny offers this kind of action cameras, almost all of them are identical, we all know how cheap they were..
    The problem is consumers do not know exactly the specification of what they are buying up until i found this site..

    So the CHIPSET of W9, probably W8 utilizes the SUNPLUS chip rather than NOVATEK series..
    and the Sensor used are APTINA and not SONY EXMOR…

    That make sense of their cheap price..Thank you Blog poster..
