|04-06-2013 08:37 AM|
|DeputyDaveS||I guess I'm the sucker because I didn't read this thread before I bought my silver. I want a looping camera just like my car has but I figured I'd get one more suitable 4 cycling. My cars loops indefinitely and stops when it registers a impact so it doesn't overwrite the accident. It has a gps and its just as small as the gopro. And it was $200. Let's get with it Gopro looping means looping not "false advertising". Also I making an alunimum bike mount 4 the gopro because the cheap plastic mounts keep snapping mid trip. What do u do when ur on ur last mount and it breaks 30 miles away from home? Ill post the mout when I'm done.|

Your new scenarios.
1) Three seconds, give or take. Depends if you have the camera set for one-button mode. Add time to look at the LCD display or listen for the turn on beeps, rotate the camera towards subject, push record button. In one-button mode perhaps a little quicker???
2) Minimum of 3-4 seconds. There is a time lag from sending the command until the camera receives and responds to the command. Wi-Fi needs to be turned on of course, both on the phone and camera and the application on the phone running and connected to camera, with the camera in the right mode when command sent.
These minimum times are based on watching the LCD display, there maybe a time lag from then to actual recording. Plus do you use a lens cap? Is the camera naked, in the Frame or in a case? Adds more time.

Looping tip from the manual:
|03-28-2013 05:25 PM|
1) camera held in hand, walking casually, powered down. what is the delay time from turning power on for it to startup and ready be start recording.
2) camera mounted, in power standby mode, e.g. outside moving car, use iphone App to start recording, what is the delay time.

1. Need you to answer some questions: Do you mean with the camera turned off, then push the record button and then start a recording? Or do you mean the camera is already on, you push record button and then start recording? Is the camera mounted, already focused and powered up? And are you using the iPhone app to control the camera? Describe this situation just a bit more. Thanks.
2. Just returned from a trip doing loop recording as a dash cam for nearly nine hours. HOWEVER, used the open frame and near a windshield that was cold. Camera was warm, but not hot. Used an external battery pack for power, not the 12 volt outlet in the car. Which should NOT make a difference.
3. Yes the camera will stop when the card is full, it has no choice. With a simple loop recording, yes the card will not get filled. However, if like me, I stopped the recording every so often you will create a group of loop recordings and if each is large enough the last one could fill the card. (I stopped recording using the iPhone application at rest areas and restaurants, but left the camera turned on as with an external power supply starting up takes a small bit of time.)

Loop recording & start up time
I am considering getting a Hero 3. and I am hoping someone can tell me their experience with the following
1) What is the startup time, ie the time from power on to actually starting the recording.
2) Are there any overheating problem if we turn the camera on all the time, for about 9 hours with external power connected ?
3) Does the loop recording function works? How does it work? I have read many people saying that it does not work and will stop once the memory card is full.
Thanks for any input to the above.
