A hot mirror is easy to replace, if the existing one is an interference filter on the lens.
I believe some cams like Vivitar glue the hot mirror on the outside of the lens assy. Not as good, inside is better and allows thinner filters. Thin filters on the ouside of the cam should be fine, but fragile.

So, after all - is there someone, who has no problem with the lens and focus and his/her camera works 100% fine? If not, this "out of focus problem" maybe is mass manufacturing defect? If there is someone, can he/she tell us the name of his/her seller and share some image and video samples with us.
Thanks in advance.

Flashing yellow light

I got my camera, charged it up and inserted a 8G micro sdhc card in it, and all I get is a flashing yellow light. What's going on? The card has a 4 with a circle around it so it should be a high speed card. Can anyone help?

I'm inserting the micro card with the writing on top and the camera buttons on top. I press the card in as far as it goes and all I get is a flashing yellow light

With the buttons on top, insert the card with the writing DOWN, and the contacts up. It will go all the way in, and you'll have to push it in with your fingernail for it to "lock" in, it will sit just inside of the case. Push it in again and it snaps out to remove it.

Hi guys, Question, I have XP pro, quick time, windows media player, windows movie maker. What program is out there, free, and an idiot like me can simply import the .mov, edit the .mov to shorten it or grab a section for Doppler speed that I have to make a .wav file by grabbing the audio off the .mov file and save it to a format that keeps the HQ quality?
your time and effort would be greatly apperciated

Memory cards?

Great job Frank.

Having stumbled on to this thread I may give these little guys another try.
I lost interest due to poor performance - the hacking was fun for a while but the after all the fun, the results were always unsatisfying.
The first question that came to my mind while trying to decide if I was going to fork out $40 was this:
What about the memory card?
I remember that some of the performance issues of old were due to the type of memory card. Does that problem still exist? If so what card should I order at the same time I order my new camera?
I did look at the FAQs and saw no mention if this issue.
I would guess anything above 4 GB would be overkill - but what about card class?
If I missed it - sorry

Thanks for you continued efforts,
Walt Bankes

Ha, Tom - it looks like our last messages collided.
In case that caused you to miss reading mine, this is a bump.

I start the recording process then plug in the charger. Not sure if that helps, just how I've been doing it.

I tried the car charger and it filled my 8gb card. This leads me to believe that the AA charger will not power the camera, but will charge it enough to record a little more than 20 min. more (at least in my case), before it runs down and then doesn't save the last file. I guess it's just a charger after all.
