Hi thought i would just let people know about this camera.
Some people may know already.
Its just a cheap copy of the muvi veho.
but does the job and only cost £17.00 all in off eBay.
Not brilliant quality video but hey what do you want for £17.00.
just have a look on you tube before you decide to buy one,this will give you a good idea of video quality.

MINI DV MD80.

STEVE.:thumbsup:

I checked out the Youtube vids for them as well Stevo and they look like a fantastic bargain for the price. Only thing that is a little vague is how long the battery life is. Bloody great time for air traffic to be grounded though. I want my cam :biggrin:

The advertised battery life is supposed to be two hours but the reviews seem to to suggest that an hour is about average. I wonder if you can buy a usb dynamo? :biggrin:

Note that the original ones record about an hour per Gb, the clones do about 15 minutes per Gb.

You cannot remove the timestamp and having to keep setting it is a faff.

Class 6 micro SD - something makes me think that there might be a limit of 4GB but I can't be sure.
