For $40 it is technological miracle. When I bought the Jazz HDV 178 for a $100 a few years ago I thought I found what I needed even though it was 5 ounces with battery. I found the V3 keycams and was amazed by the quality and lightweight package. And now the HD version. Best of all, I can velcro it to a plane or to my hat.

In another few years we will have that 60 FPS key cam with no vignetting. And, it will only cost $15. It's only a matter of time.

Here's a video I took skiing today. Don't blame the 808HD for the pauses in the vid in a couple of places, the original files are smooth with no pauses. I blame myself for doing too many clips and removals from the original clips and also using Win Live Movie Maker on an ancient (3 years old) computer.

You can really notice the vignetting on this one because of the white snow.

Nice, Yabba.

You sure do get a lot of nice sunny winter days there. What's the temp like?

Yabba,

Very good. The snow covered your beautiful soccer field. How long before it melts?

Actually, there are some good banjo versions of Wipeout floating around! You might also like the one by Bobby Badfingers. Or in my case Danny Dumbthumbs? LOL

Touch and goes on snow look easy, but it ain't so! Nice job!

Well Tom it didn't work. I added the on file next to the dcim on the root. Powered off then back on. It hesitated for a few then activated. I took a still and a short vid and got no date so, I added the file again and it must have bricked the cam because it just sits there. When I connect the usb the red light glows for a couple then turns off but trying to press the on/off button nothing happens. So now what should I do?

I should ad that I got Diana to remove the time stamp when I ordered the cam so I don't know if I did something wrong.

LOL, Thanks Victa, I'll check it out

Tom and Bill, actually, I waited to long to go skiing, the temps have been in the low 50's the last couple of days and the snow (as you can see from the foot tracks) is going fast and was really too mushy for good skiing. Had fun though. It's suppose to be warm all this week so looks like we're headed back to the skool.

I hadn't flown at that place before and I really didn't like it. Too close to a main highway and the guy in charge says we can fly there but not to fly over the highway. So that means going to the south into the low sun. Plus there's a wicked rotor or something just as you are trying to get down after the little rise on the final approach from the east. Really kicks you around.

I see Hobby-Lobby now has a HD version of the FlyCamOne, with more options of course, but you still can't beat this 808HD for the size and money!!!

Are you doing this with the USB cord connected to the camera? The camera must be disconnected from the PC USB port when doing this.

You shouldn't have to add the "ON" file again either, since it should still be there... it doesn't get automatically erased... you have to manually delete it or it will load the firmware eveytime you turn on the camera.

Might be worth going back to read the step by step instuctions I linked in post #3, and make sure you followed them exactly.

Yeah... 4 times the cost... 3-1/2 times the weight... same video quality. But people will flock to it like they did they old one, because they see the ads for it, not knowing the HD key cam exists.

I'm comparing the keychain and the Flycamone HD. The only thing the flycam might have is a remote shutter. I kinda want to to be able to control pics/videos in flight. Is there a remote shutter option for the keychain camera? Beyond that, its hard to justify an extra $110 for the same video quality.

Thanks!

I know of no remote shutter option for the HD keycam. You are going to have to decide what's most important to you. Decisions, decisions.

I really dont think a remote shutter option on the 808 camera would be very useful. The still pictures just plain suck!

Now if they can give us live composite video out while it records... Might be useful for FPV!

That makes sense! I guess I will have to see if the Flycamone HD takes decent photos. At this point though I will probably still get the keychain cam.
