C1-C2-C3 Basic settings and how they work

 

LOOP RECORDING


When SD card becomes full it will loop back to beginning and over write previous videos. As example, say you have 3 videos on your SD card v1, v2, v3 and the card is now full. Loop recording will loop back to v1 and over write it to v4 and continue recording, next it will over write v2 to v5, then v3 to v6 and so on. The switch on side of camera needs to be set to loop recording (center position)
