... and another GoPro helmet mount broke, this time after less than 2 months of use. Quality engineering, that. :roll:

the latest version of Mobius is EXTREMELY good in low light levels - compared to previous versions.
with a good light up front - visibility in the recording is excellent.

What's the Mobius' battery life like? The real, not advertised.
Which Mobius package did you buy? Was it the ITPCam 64 cycling package?

eletoponline or something.

I'm running the Mobius2, and get close to 2hrs - around 1:30-1:45 from memory.
Running 1080p (AT) 30fps from memory.

I've also looked at getting some external batteries from hobbyking & connecting them up.
can get 2000mah batteries for $8, the battery in the mobius is 850mah. But i'll need to be external & some modifications - but works really well (did a prototype)

Thanks for the reply. I ordered a Mobius last week, the ITPCam 64, so I'm looking forward to trying out something that isn't a GoPro. Take heed, GoPro! You drove me away with your continual feature upgrades while doing stuff-all about weight and battery life.

i don't know whether you've come across this but someone was talking about that in the comments to the DC Rainmaker review. there's heaps of comments so you will have to go looking but its useful stuff and Cycliq are interacting also.

Anyone use a basic INCA 4k HD action cam? I have been gifted one and have not yet set it up. Anything that I should know?

What the??? Saw a Fly12 copy on Fleabay
No info of SD card size or run time. It looks crap but it got view screen on top of body.
Might have plastic body and not good mounting bracket.
Poor form of description info.

My new Mobius camera arrived, 13 days after I ordered it, which sounds pretty reasonable to me. I've charged the camera, and also the external battery that comes with it. Now I just have to get used to using it. I've been using GoPro Hero series cameras for many years, so I'm used to them.

I charged the Mobius camera, then just set it to record until the battery ran flat, and it lasted 2 hours 15 minutes, so I'm happy enough with that, as it more than covers my one-way commuting time. Of course, it's a new camera, so I expect that over time the battery life will decrease slightly.

I noticed one thing with my new Mobius camera (an ITPCam model): it has a wide-angle lens which protrudes from the camera a bit more than was the case (apparently) with the Mobius 1 and 2 cameras. Because of this, the weather cover doesn't have any cover to put in front of the lens, i.e. it covers all of the camera except for the lens. I'm wondering how this will work in wet conditions. Comments, anyone?

Regards,

Between the glass & the plastic you need to do something - otherwise moisture gets in the lens & affects visibility.
Get some conformal coating (or just clear nail polish!) & paint it around all the joins in the plastic & you'll be fine.

My Fly12 filmed a car vs car incident yesterday while riding around with my son. Cut the segment out and emailed it to guy who got hit. Low speed, everybody was okay.
