open topic, for anything cycling related.
My nice aluminium mount broke!
With all the wobbling & abuse from the torch the bolt has slowly worn away the threads, and also broke the countersunk head.
To be expected, 1 18650 torch is actually a bit of mass wobbling constantly.
Will put another one on & use some loctite/epoxy etc to really ensure the bolt never moves, or gets a chance to move.
FYI - The other thread which is on top for the mobius has no issues.
Can I ask a couple of (possibly) dumb questions please
I had 2 808's no 16s which have done alright but want to buy a new camera as I've lost one (slaps self in head) and one for my car. I think this time i'll buy a Mobius. I looked on Techmoan's forum and was happy to buy from eletoponline as one of the good sellers but asked him about the external battery packs and whether the ones that go with the 808s can be used on the Mobius because in that case i'll buy all the bits together.
he said they're not compatible and that any 5v dc thing would do instead. I'm not sure whether he sells them (couldn't find them on his website) or he's talking about something else altogether. Can anyone advise what external battery pack would go with mobiuses? If I buy from eletoponline I'm not sure what extra bits I might need, but have seen this shop does a "standard package" and a car package. http://mobius-actioncam.com/ does anyone know if these are equally reliable?
Can I also ask another question - I have a bit of footage of a serious left hook that I wouldn't mind putting up on the MM threads . totally unexpected on my part and the rear film got the number plate well. . I am a compete techno gumby on editing stuff and all this is new to me. i have worked out how to cut bits out of the mov file downloaded from the 808s in windows movie maker, but how can i put a bit of the front camera film and back camera film onto the same project.
Do i just cut and past one in a new file, then open up the other footage in the same new file and try and add it?
thanks heaps all!
thanks for any advice. much appreciated!
I have been recording rides ~12hrs a week for the last 8 months with a Mobius with
my years old 808 #16 (and #11 before that) continuous power supply battery from
eletoponline, without issue. This is good for at least 2.5 hrs of video, the ext battery
is only good for .5A but Mobius only consumes <.4A when recording,a bigger battery
would be a safer bet but would also make for a heavier helmet.
Mobius power consumption:
I havent tried one yet but came across these cases for MD80 style camera, handy for winter.

fingy - thanks - can I check what I would thing would I order from eletoponline for an external battery for the Mobius - is it one of these?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/External-Power- ... 256af1009a would it still work?
Been digging back thru the thread, but there's a lot of stuff here.
I'm currently looking to go down the cam path. More for safety/capturing incidents rather than making "kewl" videos. I'd really prefer a set and forget option rather than something I need to do anything more with than charge and turn on. And I'd prefer something quite compact and neat. The Fly6 seems to tick my boxes, but my investigation has been far from comprehensive.
I'm not overly limited on budget.
Can anyone offer some thoughts as to what best suits my needs? Ideally I'd like front and rear coverage
I've been looking at the Replay XD1080 mini to attach to my helmet - http://www.replay-xd.com.au/replay-xd-1080-mini-1/
59 grams makes my gopro look like a heifer!
For rear, the fly6 is set and forget, a great option with the rear light, checkout my review (via BNA main page).
I think they may have plans for a front but expect that will take a while. Don't know if there are set and forget front cams.
There is a helmet mount front + back cam, a kickstarter project I think.
A large part of a great image is the mounting. If you get camera movement then this is the start of a poor image. Replay XD pro mounts for poles/pipes/bars etc. use a 2 part system using a billet aluminium camera clamp and a chassis/roll cage/bar mount. This ensures rock solid mounting and a bit of security as you need an allen key to remove the mount.
A vented helmet mount is on the way.
The 1080 Mini is waterproof to 3m/10feet as is with no case.
For cycling you can connect an external battery pack to the camera with a slim 2200mAh battery pack which will provide around 3.5 hours extra record time on top of the internal battery. Connecting the battery will still keep the camera water resistant.

That web page doesn't work for me.
Works fine on my Macbook
has anyone tried this? spotted this in Bigw over the weekend, for $48, id be keen to give it a whirl
Is there an eta for this? At 59 grams this camera seems ideal for mounting on a bicycle helmet.
In lieu of a specific mount, do you know if your adhesive surface mounts work reliably on the side of a vented bicycle helmet?
Sorry No ETA at this time.
The Adhesive mounts use 3M 4991 (Specs of 3M can be found here http://multimedia.3m.com/mws/media/6710 ... l-data.pdf ). Provides you have a surface to mount to you will be fine. In the Mini there is 2 x flat SnapTray bases and 1 x curves SnapTray and a Tripod SnapTray.
