More than I can review. ;)
@Sunny, thank you for great review, you spent your time and effort on that. :):):)
Thanks.
Still need to use more mounts and configuration settings but so far it's working great.
I've PM'ed you about the camera body housing problem.

Firmware updated to latest from the innovv site.
FW update is very simple.
Download, unzip and copy the FWC3.bin to the microSD card.
The card must be empty except the fw file.

You can do this while the camera is plugged in or just use microSD card and then insert the card with fw into the camera.
Power on the camera and it'll flash green, fast and slow for a while and done.

The file number issue seems fixed:

The lock files were created when I had the lens in hand and moved around. Need to disable the G-Sensor.

It had a magenta issue in one frame after FW update.
I was really surprised I caught it as it's only one frame at a time in two places, a quick flash. ;)

Frame 2015.01.31 04-12-53 (0-01-03.225).jpg
Frame 2015.01.31 04-12-53 (0-01-03.269).jpg
Frame 2015.01.31 04-14-08 (0-01-21.358).jpg
Frame 2015.01.31 04-14-08 (0-01-21.392).jpg

Video here: Magenta flash @ 00:06 and 1:21. You have to pause and may need to slow down to catch it.

Video clip from outside the window.
Couldn't adjust the level but looks pretty good.

10 years, many dashcams
Yeah the C3 is a cool little camera, i am torture testing the erly sample i got, and so far i have only encountered 2 issues.
The magents flash.
And i just notised on files last i had the SD card out the clock seem to have been reset or somthing. ( but for me thats okay i dont use the clock, just a little confusing when trying to locate a bit of action captured )

Allso the C3 is not a stellar night performer, but for the money its not bad.

i am hoping to be able to strap mine to my friends quadcopter on a long stick to get some behind and above action footage :cool:
