Hi guys,

I have had a look at the thread and I have probably missed it (a million apologies if I have ), but has anyone ever done a GUI version of the setup for this camera?

A GUI wouldn't help - if you have an original #11 then there's NOTHING that can be configured

I don't understand the "rolleyes;" not very friendly. I thought I was asking a perfectly legititmate question and a simple "yes" or "no" answer would have been better than a rude and patronising one. I am not very tech savvy, most of this stuff passes right over me and I appreciate it when people are polite, courteous and respectful.

I was more inetersted in adjusting the time date stamp and if there was any new firmware that had been developed for it and whether it needs to be updated or not; I guess I was wrong.

I see people have different understanding of the few faces available on this forum

They are just esthetic stuff .. don't have any special 2nd meaning

There's nothing much to configure with #11, but editing a text file is easy, even for #16.

I'm sorry if you misunderstood the smiley. There was certainly no insult implied. Smileys aren't intended to insult people anyway.

Nowhere in this entire thread has there ever been any mention of a configuration method for the #11, hence the sarcasm - which applies equally (more) to the developer, who never deemed it necessary to support #11 users once he "renamed" his camera #18 (for the developer!).

Click here and you'll notice there are different firmware files for the #11 - but note that some have bugs. The #11 has never ever had a configuration file of any sort.

If all you want to do is accurately set the date and time then you have two choices:
A simple version
A more complex version

The two time setting programs also work perfectly for the #18.

If you are not 'very tech savvy', as you put it, are you sure you have a #11 and not a #18? There is enormous confusion here, but I believe all new #11s are, indeed, #18s. If you have an original #11, consider yourself lucky. The #18 firmware, although configurable to a certain extent, has never been reliable .

Until the developer corrects the bugs in the firmware, I can't recommend buying this camera.
You would be much better off buying a #16. Click here for a link to the #16 thread. Only buy from one of the recommended sellers listed in post #2.

Hello all,

9895 posts is too much to read, so allow me to ask a simple question: Is it possible to buy a #11 or #16 somewere else than ebay?

I do not have (and I will never have) a paypal account. And if I pay by creditcard via paypal, they charge pretty some extra money for that.

Does anybody know whether it is possible to buy outside ebay and pay by bank-transfer?

Paypal does not charge extra

There is nothing better then PayPal for payment ...



ps: #11 and #16 are old cams ... you should look for something better like a mobius

You don't need to read all the posts, just the first few like the thread title says! I'd forget the #11... it's truly obsolete. But the #16 is still alive and much more user adaptable. See it's support thread here for verified vendors.

There are other re-sellers for the #16, but they will cost you more. You'll need to contact each verified vendor (listed in the second or third post in the support thread for the #16) to see if they can accept other payment (even the China direct sellers)!

They do. First of all, the exchange rate from Euro to Dollar is, well, 'paypal friendly', and secondly they charge an extra fee for foreign currency translation.

Maybe I've overseen something, but that's exactly what I did - and found only eBay-references and this note "NOTE: POSTS #1-#5 ARE NO LONGER BEING UPDATED ..." which rendered the titles invitation somewhat obsolete.

Thank you, I will try this. I'm not afraid of paying a few bucks more. Instead, I'm afraid of any kind of eBay-services:I have never experienced a worse customer-care than there. But thats a personal view and thus not worth a discussion.

I will go for the #16, and to be honest: When I wrote my posting I was mistaken as I assumed to be in the #16 thread (due to a misleading link).

Thank you anyway!

You are free to pay as you like.

Just remember ... unless you send money transfer to a 3rd party ... you have no insurance that you will get anything after your payment ... with PayPal the money goes to PayPal, and then to the seller, in case of problem the seller may not see any money and you get full refund.

Paying by credit card directly on the net , it is risky ... your credit card data can land in wrong hands, and you can have big troubles ...

Exchange rate is not for free anywhere in the universe ... so either you pay PayPal for exchange or to your credit card company

I'm using PayPal since 2001 ... never ever had a single issue with it.

Just recently one of my credit card data have been leaked (possibly some bad physical shop, since I only use in person not online), and only since it is an AMEX, I had not trouble, the fraud transaction (an online one) has been block automatically by AMEX and short after my card got fully blocked ... so .. annoying but not a single cent lost ... but I know people with different credit card provider that has not been so lucky like me.

..........

So ... for me there is no better way to take the #16 from the source on eBay on the vendors verified on this thread ... also remember ... there are a lot of bad clones of these little cameras, some are even fake HD ... so ... you just take a risk, on your money and on what you may got ... without any advantage ... only because for some reason (possibly wrong) you don't like payPal or eBay




ps: Mobius is not much more expensive then #16 ... for me it make not much sense to go for #16 in these days ...
