If you don't do it and you try to start GUI again, for instance, it leads to another error msg.
I believe it is better to do not drive disconnection via GUI.??

I still haven't had the time to test, but after the camera's parameters are updated the camera semi-disconnects itself making the drive unusable. I am aware of this problem but it is low on my priority list at the moment and most probably there's nothing I can do anyway.

However, I expect (hope) you can close the GUI and simply pull the plug. Depending on how you ran the GUI you may get a Windows error message telling you that the drive is no longer available. This is normal, for obvious reasons . In the early days of the GUI there was no built-in "safely remove device" and I'm sure many thousands of people just pull the plug on their #11s and #18s and #16s? without ever "safely removing" them beforehand. If you do this, Windows 7 may sometimes complain when you connect your camera again and ask if you want to scan the drive for errors. You can simply click away the warning message.

As long as you don't pull the plug while you are copying something to and maybe from the camera, I don't see any harm except it's not a super clean solution

In a future version I'll incorporate some error checking when the GUI is run on the camera's card, but this will not be this week or next week. Sorry

Nothing new here, and not something normally encountered in AV clips. Not to mention the subject matter (rats in the NYC subway) is less than appealing for demo purposes.

Then quote the post you are responding to in your post so we know what is being answered! I've read back through Colins posts, and he asked for how the #16 compares with the HK camera. Your video shows NOTHING that compares the cameras, plus we have enough comparison posts already. Further posts on the HK camera are off topic. Please stop posting stuff like this in this thread! If you cannot follow the protocol that accompanies this thread (meaningful, understandable, on topic posts) then don't post ANYTHING at all. This is not your personal playground, but you DO have one you created in this forum.. please go play there!

its unfortunate "pocket cam" has taken priority over rc model use. personally carrrying these around in your pants sounds like a bad idea to me for a variety of reasons. and imo delays of any kind are a step backward. too bad it cant be turned off or versions available w/o this "feature".

I agree, the broader uses of this camera has become more dominant in this thread, which is not my intent in starting it, and I try to discourage this. But even within the AP/AV use, your project use is pretty specific and not likely what the majority of users will apply. I've accidentally turned the camera on just by handling when I mount it to my planes, so it's not just a "pocket" issue. But that said, there will always be SOME delay after power is applied for the camera to digest what mode it is in, and start in that mode. Maybe the startup delay can be shortened by FW to a minimal amount... stay tuned!

reviewing this thread will show im not alone in wanting faster response there. and several have expressed interest in mcu control so not that peculiar either. btw its not the delay before pics can be taken (although the shorter the better there too) but the time one must hold down that button that causes the failure. making that an option or alternate versions w/o the delay would be great even if only beta. fingers crossed. for now the 0.36 is doing the job anyway.

thanks to you and isoprop for helping me decide on the a lens instead of b lens or #18 cam. i see from other posts now it was best for my needs. and thanks again for helping choose #16 to begin with.

Camera was set up Time Lapse 5 seconds, fully charged. I am showing what I (I) call unstable, at a given time, firmware 49. I feel there are issues that I will not use Time lapse, and just the camera at default.

All in perfect working order, and thank you for viewing

Fishycomics use your "808 #16" camera and get us some good video of the storm. From a pier if possible. You can test contrast and weather tightness. that away we can stay on topic. Thx
