720P HD Keychain Camera - 808 HD #18 (1280x720)
|When connecting the camera using the USB cable for the first time a box will pop up "installing drivers" which are the USB mass storage device and video camera USB device. A new drive will be listed on your pc, as example: Removable Disk (J;)|
|Pictures and Videos|
media files will be saved to the "DCIM/100MEDIA
folder on the camera drive. Right click any of the media files you created
in the folder for options like Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete. What I do is
highlight all media (or edit, select all), cut
and paste them to a folder on my pc, this removes them off camera SD card and saves
them to pc.
25 minutes of recording time will put you around 1.3 GB.
USB takes about
60 minutes to fully charge if the battery is completely empty.
When charging the (red light) will remain solid, when fully charged the light will shut off.
Note: There are 3 cables for this camera, the RCA cable with red & yellow ends used for A/V out, the single wire data cable that charges or transfers data, the double wire charger cable used with car charger to record and charge at same time.

SD cards range from 2-32 GB. The cards used are the Micro SD/TF/SDHC with storage space 4GB/8GB/16GB/32GB. Tip: TF = TransFlash, SDHC = Secure Digital High Capacity. Your local computer store may sell these cards but you will probably find them cheaper online. The higher the class number (2, 4, 6...) the faster the read/write speed. Transcend, Kinston, and SanDisk are popular brands. Class numbers will be circled, see pic below.
Class is the rate in
which data flows to and from the card.
the SD card the brass pins on card will face towards top of camera.

|Inside the Mate 808 1080P|
|Take a closer look at the internal parts of the 808 #18 HD 720P|
|Pros / Cons|
Pros: Sharp clear audio/video. The new mini 8 pin USB makes a much better connection than the standard mini USB. Battery and lens use a plug-in type connector for ez replacement. Using the configuration utility (GUI) you can create your own settings. You can also view videos and pictures directly from camera to tv using A/V cable.
This is what the time stamp looks like on my 808 #16 HD cam.
