If this is anything like the camera I have the video quality is amazing for the price, mine too is a MD80 clone but one of the better ones with metal body rather than plastic, makes a great security webcam too.
#3
I nearly voted cold because you can get them from ebay for a tenner but then realised it included the 8gb card.

#5
Awesome, been after one for ages and that's a great buy with the card and other bits!!
#6
Have some heat :p

This was posted a while ago but still a very good deal so well done for posting again.

7dayshop also gives 2% TCB not much you might as well get it.

The limiting factor of all these mini cams is the memory has to be Fat32 formatted so max file size is something like 1.8 gigs at this point the recording will stop.
This gives approx 20 mins recording time.
You can still record another file on it though.
I tried formatting with NTFS and the camera locked up had to wait for the battery to run down before I could use it again.

Still a good deal.

OOP'S sorry file limit is 4 gig on fat32_ - sorry

If this is like the one I got then once you work out how to work it (the instruction guide is a bit obscure and dodgy......mine spoke about green lights when it had blue ones. for instance) these cameras really are amazing value.
The 720p (720p!) image is surprisingly good, the audio isn't bad & the little clips & holders enable easy mounting in a car or on your clothing (the pocket/lapel clip is very useful).
I found a class 6 micro SD card was needed to get completely smooth playback.
With 8gb's your card will outlast your battery.

They are day-time only really but a lot of video camera for your money.
#10
great price i would buy it
#11
Nice one ordered.
#12
As you mentioned mounting in the car I've been thinking of putting a camera in the car to record in case of accidents. I would want something that would just overwrite the memory when it became full because I'd only need the last minute or so of video. Could this camera do that sort of thing?
#13

You can easily connect the camera to your PC by USB to mini USB, the card will then show up as a memory device & you just delete the video files in the folder.
It would take less than a minute.

Actually my earlier comment about the battery & an 8gb card is probably not accurate, I just reviewed some of my vids & they are over 80 mins so it had enough juice to almost fill the card.
#14
Is this also known as the MD 80?, Just wan't to know for some quality tests and what class is the 8GB SD Card?

EDIT: Iv'e seen a few differnt models. Im guessing the real Model is the AEE Version? or are they all the same?

Ooops, my bad.
Nevertheless full SD res (lots of films won't actually give you 720 x 480 on DVD) is pretty damned good in my book.....especially at these kind of prices.
#17
i have one with 4G card from 7dayshop too , it was OK when it work but mine only work for a month then sent it back..still waiting for any replace . but is good price for 8G .
#18
Good value for me, as I ordered the one without a card and received it with an 8GB card included.

The instructions are apalling, probably the worst that I have ever seen and actually give no useful information on how to use the camera.
I am still trying to figure out how to change the time/date stamp, as it is years out of sync.
#19
These things are just gadgets to play around with, they don't last due to the battery failing after 50 or so charges.
To set the time, there is a file on the CD called TAG.TXT if you open it you will see the time and date, just edit this to the correct time/date and copy to the cameras microSD card. the next time you turn on the camera it should set the right time.
#20
I noticed on Youtube that a lot of the reviews mentioning poor video results are solved by using a better quality microSD card.
#21
why is it only 10 minutes per gigabyte - that seem very low to me ?

Ordered one from 7 day shop last time but it is on backorder - hope it comes through soon

Many reviews was saying it was 2 Hours Recording time per Gigabyte? also is this 8GB SD Card Decent? i don't want any dropped frames.
#23
FAT32 max filesize is 4GB. I bought a 8GB micro sd card from play.com, was 10.99 now 9.99, didn't have any branding on it and is class 4 which works fine in the camera.

Copy the file Tag.txt to your PC edit the time and date to the current one, Just make it a minute or so ahead.
Link the mini camera to your PC and copy the file to the root directory of the card. (Not inside any folder). Disconnect the camera from your pc and start it up, it will then use the time and date you have just set in the file.
Just be careful not to lose the file format, IE there is a space after the date this must be kept.
#25
Anyone know what class the Micro SD Card is?, I don't want any dropped frames
#26
The cards that come with these cameras are the lowest of the low -believe me I got one for £18 with 8GB card and it's poor, use dskspeed or hdtune to measure.

Danny,



I'm using a 4gig class 4 card and see no dropped frames.
Remember what you are dealing with here, don’t go expecting too much from it after all the camera, lead, clips, charger and silicon skin is only £13.

Personally I’m impressed with the quality of this for the price.

Yes, im just wondering if i can get a decent type of model, im getting so confused with all the different types on ebay ect. I'm wan't to just buy the Camera its self so i can buy a decent Class 4 Memory card as im guessing the one you get with this is awful.
#31
I think if you film a moving image it creates much larger file sizes than a static shot. A steady hand is required also! They will work as webcam but need right software - I used the sunplus version and its still hit and miss
Yes known as md80

Mine is being used as a security cam (set up in an upstairs window via a 5m USB repeater lead) through the pc and image is good, I have one of these and 3 Playstation eyetoys, these are much better image wise,
#36
In low light such as now (well 4 minutes ago) this is a screen capture from it, bear in mind this is from inside so through a double glazed window, and the only light is one streetlight.http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s308/harlzter/Ch01_2010_09_20__20_56_29.jpg?t=1285012735

Heres a clip from it being used as a security camera, a few minutes ago someone was delivering fake so called charity bags and this is the moment he see's our dog (a big daft Alsatian cross Lab, but with a very intimidating bark), no sound as the camera is indoors though, he bottles it in the end, even though there is a five foot gate in the way.

Open the time text document and set the last letter in the time string to "N". It must be "Y" on your present setup.
