I ordered one of the #11 cams now too. I asked may they could ship a TF card instead of the car adapter and the USB cable, I'll see how that turns out I also asked them may they could remove the date+time stamp - I'll report back.

Hey Tom,

Great video!!! You're convincing me to refocus my cams

I want to try a polarizing filter next. I was thinking some filter film CA'd to a metal washer. Then a rare earth ring magnet glued to the cam would make a simple clean set up.

Keep the video coming!

Sure you removed the firmware file from the card?

I purchased two cams from eletoponline365 a couple of days ago, and they shipped yesterday.

I was just curious where he got that particular camera from and what # is it. It's the best keychain cam vid I've seen yet. None of mine are that sharp!

This thread is all about the camera described as #11 by Chuck Lohr.

The sellers identified in post 2 are all selling the same model (in that post, Tom even mentions which of the sellers he purchased from).

Tom has refocused his cam (see post 3) and also applied some sharpening in AviDemux.

. The refocusing for far field videos definitely helps, but the post processing sharpening (I use the "asharp" filter in AviDemux) definitely helps even more! I also desaturate the colors so they look like the real scene, and back off the contrast one click. On that last video, I think maybe it could look even better if I hadn't diminished the contrast quite as much. I used the settings I had set up for my prior camera, and I think I need to tweak a bit for this newer camera.

BTW, the still picture of the eagle plane was NOT taken with the HD key cam (it's taped on the birds neck). I don't think my focus would be quite "on" that close up with the far field re-focusing I did for AV use.

That's because they are all HD cameras. I got it from eletoponline365 but all the stores listed are from the same company.
