I cant wait to put this on a plane and take some aerial videos now that i have it setup with a class 10 16gb card. Thank you for the effort you have put into this, making the use of this cam like childsplay.
To give credit where credit is due, it's Isoprop's GUI program, not mine. That makes this camera's many user toggle accessible and changeable with the click of a mouse button! I just try to help with planning suggestions, follow-up testing, and keeping this thread updated and focused on the main topic of aerial video.

Oh, can you list the advances we can expect in V3 in '13 ?? ?
1. Will it be in the same case, or a new GOPRO type case ?
2 LCD view finder ??
3. more buttons ?
4. will it have a better battery?
5. what new features are planned?
6. what is the release time-line ??
7 Are you personally fixing all the unstable parts of the F/W

Come one Fishy, don't be shy, give us the real stuff, don't hide your managerial skills under a bushel we need detail so we can plan our budgets.

Or are you bound by a Non Disclosure Agreement wit The Developer?

From what I read in this thread, when the charger is connected and the battery is full, the camera will use only the power from the external source.
Because my battery died in just 2 weeks I suspect something is wrong with this procedure. In theory, if using external source for recording, the battery should live more.
If external source amperage is bigger than the power needed by recording+power needed to charge the battery, should be no problems.
Also the developer must check this type of connection to not have more bricked cards. I wrote in some previous post how I see this procedure.
The charging amps was limited (according to the developer) to about 140 mA a long time ago to be kinder to the battery. This is why it can take as much a 2+ hours to fully charge the 250 mAh battery from a fully discharged state. The camera comsumes about 300 mA (based on prior testing results by others) when recording. And the charge circuit does not "deliver" amps if the recipient does not "require" it!. So, it's not logical that the charge circuit is doing anything to the camera or the SD card from an over-amped condition. Not to say there might be something else going on with some cards. Sandisk has told me there is a "mechanical" issue with their cards that caused one of mine to be toggled into a read-only state, for which they gladly replaced the bricked card. I've not had the same issue with an identical card, so I'm still not convinced the root cause of "read-only" card failures has been isolated.

#16 does not record

I need help with my almost new #16 Camera. Did work fine but now does not record at all. When turned on, have red LED that turns steady yellow and shutter button has no effect. Tried new TF card with no change. Does not connect to computer. Is it time to buy a new one or does someone know how to correct this problem?

Thanks, Paul

Nothing could be FURTHER from the truth. As an engineer, I NEED details to understand what you are saying in your posts. You NEVER said anything about posting AV video in your recent post here about the hurricane damage. Your recent posts have been "walking tours" of the NYC subway and streets that many might find entertailing, but it's off topic in an AV thread! The problem with most of your posts is LACK OF detail, or incomprehensible "thumb texting" from a something other than a keyboard. AND, it' is getting Very, Very, Very old! Please stop. What part of that sentence do you NOT understand!

Try:
1. Powering the camera with the external car charger cord. Test again.
2. Try pushing the rest buttom, Test again.
3. Try a different USB cable. Test again
4. Try un-plugging the battery for a minute then reconnect. Test again.

Report back your findings.

I think the charging is working OK. But...
Recently, there are some „coincidences” like: the swedish user blue ghost low light bug (also I have this bug), the swedish user bricked card (also I had 3 damaged cards), my too early damaged battery (waiting for the swedish user or another users to announce this, if will happen).
This is the reason I suspect something strange in the charging firmware code. Or some lower quality electronic component from the PCB and/or some lower quality lenses and/or batteries.
I have the feeling that something is not working as it should. I hope the problems to be solved with a firmware fix, not hardware.

Thanks, Paul
Two things to look at:

1 In house format. will clear what is on the sd card, some cards need to say hello to the cam.

2 reverting to an older fw, and back to the fw?

those are two other choices to do?

Keep us all posted
