    Lukas: Image Quality?

    Thanks for the observation. I guess I have to start playing with "Sharpness" , "Saturation", "Brightness", "LSC" (?), and "ACCE" (?). I'm guessing "Defog" is a no-brainer: just leave it Off.

    Lukas: Image Quality?

    viz: http://tinyurl.com/n3wvsb8 Even so it is just a clip that probably suffers somewhat by going through upload/Picassa, looking at the actual vid on my PC at max size, I cannot tell the diff in image quality - what you see is what I got. What's making me wonder is that there is no way the...

    LK-7300: Does It Remember Setup Info?

    Dunno how I got the notion that the Lukas app just copied files, but I was so sure of it that I just ran a test to prove it... Oops!!...The Lukas app really *did* do a true format. I stand corrected.

    LK-7300: Does It Remember Setup Info?

    I am thinking in the context of other users looking for answers later on. More granularity in the Subject would seem to make for easier manual searching by browsing thread headers.

    Looking for an LK-7300 User

    I would like to hear how the on-demand recording feature works for you. My experience seems tb much at odds with what the user guide says. When I press "Menu", all I get is a .JPEG in "Manual". The .JPEG's time stamp/file name gives me enough info to located the event in one of the "Always"...

    LK-7300: Cannot Comprehend Page 6 of Manual

    Pretty much all of it. The English just does not make sense. This is true of much of the manual. It reads like somebody ran the Korean through BabbleFish or Google Translate or something - as opposed to having it re-written by a native English speaker. Check out E.M Scott's review of the 7900...

    LK-7300: "Please Connect After Cutoff The Power Of BLACKBOX"

    Re: LK-7300: "Please Connect After Cutoff The Power Of BLACK I think I've got it: label was on GPS wire, not power. My bad. I will venture that somebody is trying to say "Do not connect the GPS while the LK-7300 is operating.

    LK-7300: Does It Remember Setup Info?

    I have had my 7300 for a grand total of three (3) days. Having said that... AFIK, the SD card needs tb "formatted" twice before being put into the cam. 1. By Windows as FAT32. All my cards have come out of the box preformatted FAT32, so I have never done this. 2. By the Lukas PC app. This...

    LK-7300: Cannot Comprehend Page 6 of Manual

    viz: http://tinyurl.com/mqqmdah Maybe it's me... but I find this mostly incomprehensible. I get something about the angle of view affecting picture quality, but they lose me after that. Given that the camera needs to be placed behind the rear-view mirror and should be as close to the center...

    LK-7300: Unable To Make Manual Recording Work?

    Per page 9 of the User Guide: - Manual recording: when clicking the manual recording (MENU) button, the video is saved in the [manual] folder even without shocks, and the pre-10 seconds and post-20 seconds of viewo are recorded ans saved. * You cannot operate the manual recording while...

    LK-7300: "Please Connect After Cutoff The Power Of BLACKBOX"

    viz: http://tinyurl.com/n37af59 It's on a semi-permanent label affixed to the power cord - so I guess they're serious. But serious about what?

    LK-7300: Does It Remember Setup Info?

    Sounds like I was tripping over the semantics. In computerspeak, "Format" clobbers the entire card or drive. No data survives a Format. In LukasSpeak, OTOH, "Format" is shorthand for selective deletion of data. I discovered that if I back up System.dat and copy it to another card, the...

    Looking for "Monitor" tb kept in vehicle

    Thanks!... "Tablet" got me on the right track and I think I'm homing in on something: http://tinyurl.com/n3ymp4q It probably doesn't do AVI input.... but that's not such a big deal... mainly I want to whip it out and see what's on a card.

    LK-7300: Does It Remember Setup Info?

    I just unboxed one of these things. Installation was a snap and I think it's going to be a winner for me overall. But I'm not sure I understand how it handles setup parameters. On the face of it, it seems like I have to open up the SD card on a PC using Lukas' application and set the parms...
