1080p DVR Car camera
« on: May 04, 2013, 02:30:23 »
Finally got the jello sorted out on the camera and quadcopter
worked out that the attachment i was using was causing the jello due to prop wash
fixed camera hard mounted to frame and jello gone
I use this camera for my FPV as well as it has av out to connect to my video TX
Copter not very stable waiting on APM 2.5 board to arrive then will sort out the trimming

Hi Gav
not sure on the weight but its very very  light i have to have my battery way forward to counter the long frame and video TX on back

Ive been using one of those cameras in my car for the last few months or so as a incident/accident recorder.
The images I get using it in the car are good quality and I thought about getting another for multi use but ended up getting a keyring camera with wide angle lens.

The only downside Ive seen with the ebay car camera is they are a little picky with the micro sd card and I have to check all is ok. Saying that its only done that twice and both times sorted by reformatting the card with the camera.

I haven't had any issues with mine when not mounted on quad it's used in the car I am using a class 10 micro card on mine

I am using a class 4 32gb card here. Problem seemed to happen when I swapped the 8gb card I had in there to the 32gb thats in it now.
Saying that it gets used every time car is started (it auto starts with the car) and the card issue has happened twice in a few months.
Could have been down to a bad conection on the card due to the cold weather or anything.
Im going to have a look for a better spec 32gb card as I thought it was higher spec than it is.

edit got myself a class 10 32gb card on the way now so hopefully that should solve the card issue.
      Saying that it hasnt happened enough for it even bother me anyway as it lives in a pretty horrible place (direct sunlight and freezing cold never does electronics much good)

you should notice a difference with the class 10 card especially in quality of picture
im only using an 8 gig dard

also found that putting the setting to -2/3 gives a better colour quality as the movie above the colour was a bit washed out
