Can't wait to get this airborne on the weekend. had this lens on the #3 camera previously and had EXCELLENT results (see link)

Wow. Not sure I'd trust it on my Stryker.

Carefull of those light poles, they have airplane magnets in them!
I thought of a piece of tape over the mic hole for airborne noise.

No change : continous yellow led blinking ! The red led is off due to fully charged battery.

I think a failure in the memory card connector.
I have cleaned the contacts of the card with alcohol : no change.

There is a small sticker on the side of the cam which must be removed to open the shell. May be this is a warranty sticker so I will wait the seller comments .
Thanks

I have two of these on the #3 808 cameras. They work great. I also added UV filters to the front of them.

One of my 808 # 3 was positioned inside the card reader that when inserting the card is slid over the reader at times. Why are you going to do the same.
Card is sitting right side of the camera and the LED blinks if there were no cards.

how are you mounting yours Tony? Hot glue also?

It seemed to work for Toronto but I have to agree with Mclarkson, it sure seems like a shakey way to mount it. Maybe blue painters tape would be better

I use 3M reclosable fasteners (velcro) to mount the camera on a plane. The velcro is glued on using supplemental adhesive -- UHU creativ.

Yeah Bill, I always (almost always) mount the camera with velcro also. I meant how was he mounting the lens to the camera.

Thx,

I'll remove the date but at some point I might want a good warbird date on my footage.

Still thinking about your idea, here's how I would do it. Font is DigifaceWide (downloadable) which simulates early (if not 1944!!) readouts. I chose the time to be same as the start of D-Day

d day - first 21 seconds.mpg (0 min 23 sec)

Follow up on memory problem

Yes indeed I can copy a word document on to the memory and lo and behold the next time I try to make a movie it works. Then if I remove the word document it doesn't work. So it's a small price to pay for getting it to work. But I now have videos.

Other anomalies (features?):

1. After turn on the shortest push of the small button I get three flashes and dark - movies mode. There is no opportunity to take jpgs which is supposed to be a short pulse as it goes immediately into movie mode.

2. I did manage to get a jpg by pushing the large button after turn on, got the flash. But would not go into movie mode until I turned it off and back on again.

3. It will only take one movie and then I terminate. After that it will not start another movie or jpg until after I turn it off with the big button.

4. After all that sort of success I erae everything - nothing works.

5. Put the word file back, took 3 movies in a row, but no jpgs.

I'll try the faster memory card next week and report.

Every thing works fine with the new Transcend class 6 memory card (4GB) rather than the old San Disk 2GB from my low res key fob card. Camera functions as it should. No need to fool around with dragging an extra file in to force it (somehow) to save a movie. Stills/videos all work per your instructions. I guess you really must heed that broken english instruction to use a high speed card. Would have been nice if they had provided with the camera. $10 bucks on Amazon.

Thanks victapilot,

Looks good. Post production is a much better way of doing it now that we can remove the time stamps.

I was just trying to use the date stamp in the #3 cams for something useful when I tried this originally.

A BIG thanks to everyone that is revealing the inner secrets of these cams !!

and now the fun begins.....

That Op is no sweat - had it done just before xmas - 15 mins, no sweat, no pain, no problems & now no glare from oncoming cars/low sun

The worst part is the Paper work system & Dragons before and after the actual OP.

Easy as pie You just lay there and the gas passer asks if you are starting to get drowsy and if you are able to answer him (I did), believe me, that's the last thing you will remember until you wake up

And empeabee is right, everything is so much colorful and bright and clearer. It will make you realize that you've been looking at things for the last several years thru a dirty window pane.

My Mom had it several years before mine and the day they took the patch off, she called me and was bubbling like a little school girl about how much more colorful and clearer everything was. I thought "that's cute". And then I had mine and I understood why she had been so happy.

Good luck
