Theoretically last Sunday I was out for testing, but I crashed at launch (what a #fail) and I do have only the crash, so I will not post it right now

But yes, the few seconds of the video shows that there are some improvements in the color.
What I have changed is the Color tone to Warm and added one level of exposure.

I do hope I will be able to fly this weekend, but the weather will decide for me.

Yep, the changes in the new firmware are impressive, almost perfect now, the only missing for me are:
- have folders name as date
- remember the last generated settings, now every time I want to make a single change I must check all again.

Also, make Contrast slider operational, is disabled now.
Adding at least two level to Contrast and Saturation would be nice too

Kudos, RunCam ! Mobius should start to fear

Even more kudos if you would "remake" the operational video so that those of us that are not so computer "savvy" could operate and programme our cameras without having to go to night school
So many manufacture's assume we all know about these things . I think with clear -precise, WELL translated instruction , more "OLD like me would buy goods from overseas
This is a great camera and no doubt even better still if all the wonderful "tweaks" can easily be changed

I lost my RunCamHD but now I found it again. Uploaded the new FW.

As far as I can tell, the "custom date stamp" does not work, it only puts on the date.

I'll do a new video soon. unfortunately my DRV is broken but a new one is on the way and I'll do a "live-out" video.


Drambuidhe I had trouble with getting the updates on to the card. My PC is a little tired. If yours are failing try a different cable or maybe restart your PC before doing it?

Update

looks like since the FW update, the runcamHD will not output live video in either PAL or NTSC

Can anyone else confirm this?
