Foxeer Legend1 16MP 1080P, Ambarella A7LS, Sony IMX206

Anyone tested this cam from SZ?
http://www.surveilzone.com/Foxeer-Le...ee-Lens-g-1435
Maybe it's released with another name and already tested?

If not - it looks very impressive. Processor and sensor identical to Xiaomi Yi and very good form factor/weight. If it delivers similar IQ to Yi - bye bye Mobius/Runcam ;-)

Ordered one to check....

How big is the latency from the live AV out?

And how does it manage rapid brightness variations?

Been waiting for something like this. Would be nice to see pictures of the internals. That video is pretty poor quality, but it looks like compression from the upload.

Davidsz: Some questions if you don't mind I'm sure a number of people are wondering.

- Can you configure auto record and auto save based on power provided by USB?
- Can you buy a replacement lens?
- Any RF shielding built into the camera case?

Blur - 5 minute fix (have 5 of them, refocused 4 of them - really easy) and Yi weight is comparable to mobius/runcam with new 850mAh battery, so not bad.
But form factor is issue, Yi with 22+ rev. (early revisions had way too short flat cables inside) can be made flat (and even lighter! ~24g IIRC without batt.):

but this requires new case, also not so nice access to USB/SD...

This one has very nice form factor, but there are 1000+1 unanswered questions:
  • Is firmware available? Would be nice to check if it can be modified like Yi (extra res for stab, more bitrate, raw photo and so on)
  • Description is.... Well ;-) Need real description - how to set modes, what we can use to change settings and so on
  • Lens close-up pix? Some Yi revisions used GP3 lens available everytwhere for 12-15$, so easy to replace even if they are scratched. Which lens are here?
....and so on

I am talking about Yi 1080p60 mode blurriness even with lens refocused. Quality of this mode is not satisfactory even with a script hacks.

Will this cam go better?

Could this camera be a Mobius killer, if they play their card right?

Looks great, and the specs are pretty impressive. Just send SurveilZone (anybody dealt with them before?) some questions; will see what their respons is.

already got a reply from SurveilZone (that was quick) which didn't answer most of my questions, but pointed me at the new website: http://www.foxeer.com. Links in the Support Center don't seem to work (yet) though, but according to SZ they will tomorrow.

Really? The video looks terrible to me. I was excited about this until I saw that video and attempted to watch it in YouTube "HD." I know that YouTube reencodes and compresses every video, so you don't get the quality of the origin, but that was just bad. It does not look like 60fps to me and the focus seems all over the place and scratchy. YT compression didn't do that.

Until people will realize that camera test samples is necessary to share only as downloadable RAW files we will suffer from this stupidity watching all kind of utube crap!

I have to agree with you 1080 60fps doesn't look good at all.
I hope it's only youtube that's doing a crap job encoding it...

there's some serious weird image warping going on in that video; did you see that tree shaking its hip (@1:34)? That's not Youtube for sure. Guess that's an image stabilizing attempt? The image from high above looked pretty good tho.

Same here...I was gonna buy until I saw that video. Decided not to. Not Yi camera quality yet.

And it's not the compression artifacts that I don't like. The color rendition and exposure. They could have picked a better day or time of day to put out first samples from the camera.

Still have hope for this camera. Simply because the form factor is what many of us wanted. Looking forward to better video examples.
