save file

Is there a problem that this camera DOES NOT save the file that it was recording when the battery gets too low to power the camera?

I use Packing Tape to secure my old keychain Cam directly on top the Drone Hull. It's pretty secure and stable, buttons are operational. The buttons on the HD version seem to require less force to operate but I dont think it will be an issue.

My 808Hd(s) arrived yesterday after 7 days in transit to NY, from seller Eletoponline365, both are working well. 10K bitrate.
Here's my first 808HD video:

Any idea ?
papayankee, can you describe what happens when you put in the car charger cable and then try to record?

Good news here. Received my HD camera. Removed timestamp successfully.

Good news for those who want to have an even wider field of view.

This jelly lens:

I was using this one on the #3. The HD has appr. the same angle as #3 plus jelly lens.

But..... jelly lens + HD camera results in an even wider view!!! (I guess about 90 degr.). I expected to see dark sides, but this isn't the case! This is based on some tests in the living room incandescent lighting. Will do some outdoor tests tomorrow, and show results here.

Alright. Problem. My computer doesn't seem to 'see' the camera, when I plug it in via the USB cable. With the 808s, I'd plug them in and Windows would chime and a new device would appear in the File Explorer (Drive H: or whatever).

I am not getting anything with the new camera. The USB cable and port are known to be good and working perfectly with my old 808s.

I am using a SanDisk MicroSD class 4 8GB card.

The light does come on on the camera. The camera charges successfully and appears to work afterwards. But the computer doesn't see it.

Should this work? Anyone else have a similar experience?

They work a little differently to the #3's. You need to press the on button after you plug it into the computer to exit charge mode and enter usb disk mode.

If you connect the camera to the PC in the off-condition, the red light will be on. You need to push the on/off button to enable the file transfer. It's in the Chinglish manual .

* edit * sgbfly, that was at the same time . You won.

For those who wish to add a 180 degree fisheye, this is how it looks with and without (sorry for the fingers on the side, couldn't hold the lens properly!

TorontoR, which lens is that? I've noticed that many of these lenses all look the same, but can vary greatly when it comes to image quality... That one looks pretty good!

I actually used one of those Jelly lenses once on my old keychain camera. It didn't want to stick in place, though. I'd need a different mounting, especially on my Stryker.
