Hi
I'm so happy to find this forum with so much information about Key Cams.
I bought a #11 camera that should be a *real* HD, but I'm not convinced, and I need your knowledge and opinion.
One thing that I'm happy about, is that I found the seller name (eletech086) on post #2, but there is mismatch between what appears on the sales page and the item I got.
Here is the sales page:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...d=957289070006
In the attached image you can see that I got Item that is different (AV-out) from the one listed on sale page.
Another mismatch points:
- It creates .AVI files and not .MOV files.
- It creates a new file every 15 minutes (~625MB) and not every 4GB as stated.

Here is the information for a video I took:

Can one please confirm if I have a REAL HD cam or not?

In addition, if it is a real HD cam, is there a firmware to restore the date/time stamp for this version of camera?

EDIT - 13/8/2013
Finally, after the weekend vacation, the seller sent me an e-mail and inform me that I got the advanced version, the #18. He attached an instruction file + FW (mov/avi) + setup utility. The FW & setup utility I got, is the same version as available on the #18 thread, post #3.
I've played with it and I'm very satisfied.

Thank you
