Price ? $59.99 US
Release date ? Mid-April was anticipated
More specs ?
Dimensions: 58x36x17mm
Weight: about 46 gms. with 500 mAH battery
May not have a photo mode in the first release, but FW development will continue.
Video-out mode is planned.
Configuration via a GUI program is planned.
I hope to have a test version soon.


Also, it will have some competition from a 1080p camera from the #16 developer, also in the final stages of development. I posted a video sample in my #16 thread.

I see the 30 FPS video, the vehicles are jerky if you look closely. I would want better than that for my next one.

Judging from the sample movies, looks like the new #24 (from the #16 developer) will be better than this...

Look at the corners, very poor focus.

People are getting confused. There never was an "official" #24 (the naming convention comes from ChuckLohr.com/808). Someone posted the sample from THIS #26 camera and called it #24 for some reason. The #26 designation was later agreed to between the developer and Chuck Lohr, even though this camera has a considerably larger case in the same style as the small 808 cameras.

The #18 and #16 developers originally worked together to develop the #11, but then went their separate ways and developed the #18 and #16 cameras, which now compete for the same market. The #16 developer will have a new 1080 camera ready for release shortly. The case will be approximately the same overall dimensions, but will have it's own unique case design. I do not expect it to have a number designation like the #26 for that reason.

Anyone interested in seeing a sample video from the #16 developer's 1080p camera can go to my #16 thread in this aerial photography forum and do a thread search for "1080". My post with the video link to the sample will be in the first several posts.

Maybe it's best to wait for a new thread relating to the 808 #16 1080p cam, as it's not the 808 #16 cam it seems slightly off topic to post there, even if the developers are the same.

From previews of THIS cam (808 #26) it seems like the same crappy lens they use in the jumbo hd, with a narrow fov and poor/slow adjusting to lighting and not good at filming something when there is a light behind it, unlike the 808 #16 (original) which is much better in both these areas, so I'd assume the 808 #16 1080p HD should be better than this one for results.

And, the jumbo hd 1080p records at a bitrate of 17.4 Mbps but the raw files from chucklor for this 808 #26 it's only 12.6 Mbps.
so really the only advantage I see of this cam over the original jumbo hd is a better case design, and maybe (can't tell from the previews) no more frame jumping, dead pixels or crashing.
(and yes, I know higher birtate doesn't always mean better quality, but it's a major factor)

You can indeed search within a thread, the option is at the top right, right next to the rating. You can also restrict the search to posts by a particular user to narrow the results.
That said, here's the link to Tom's post concerning an eventual 1080 camera from the makers of the #16:

Look near the top of the page, there is a button called "Search this thread", use that on the #16 thread.
