Hotter than M1?only at superfine framerate (44mbps) or also lower?I don't want to disappoint you guys, but I wouldn't recommend using the MM as a dashcam, at least not at this point and unless the developer gives his OK.
The MM gets very hot very quickly. I honestly can't imagine driving with it recording for hours on end - unless it gets a full blast of AC all the time it's running.
Exactly....while I keep checking specs, in the end firmware updates & support should be much more taken into account.Tried the C3 , lasted a year & although the concept was great as a remote dash cam the hardware/firmware failed. Mobius original has been very reliable.
In comparison, the M1 only becomes warm. You can always hold it in your hands. Not so the MM.Hotter than M1?only at superfine framerate (44mbps) or also lower?
Even with the added copper sink mount? Then we'll need a full metal suction cup mount....
A 'Locked' folder is created on the card, but I haven't found out how you can create a locked file. I've mentioned this to the developer as it could be a bug OR the "Locked" folder shouldn't be created.Does the Mobius Mini have the same File Protection (write protect) while recording feature as described in the Instruction Manual for the Mobius ActionCam? It is not specified in the User Guide for the Mobius Mini ActionCam. Anybody know?
I have talked it over with the developer, and we both agree that dashcam use is not recommended with the MM
Well, we need a suction cup/tripod screw supporting mount fully made by copper/aluminum in order to act like a big HEAT SINK and..presto, you have a cooling solution at hand.In comparison, the M1 only becomes warm. You can always hold it in your hands. Not so the MM.
I've only tested the 'Fine' video quality.
I don't have the release version with the copper heatsink, so that may run a little cooler.
well, if there is metal-to-metal contact and maybe thermal paste too...I don't see how heat transfer would not apply.well on the new M2 the mounting do act like a heat sink, and it do get warm.
But i an sure what even heat is generated will be more than can travel up the mounting screw and away from the camera itself.
I am just forgetting the mobius mini when it comes to dashcam use, and i am sure there will soon be more options in the "ultra small footprint on window" segment of dashcams.
Ouch! I don't know why but I thought I remember to have seen a metal surface between the 4 screws, therefore I guessed the copper tripod round disc-to tripod screw would have that surface against the internal heat sink, not only trhough the 4 tiny screws (thus a bigger exchange surface....my bad memory...Sure heat will propagate thru metal just fine, the question is how fast it will do so.
Take the M2, it do have a heat sink on the inside of the case, but how good it contact with the chip generating the heat i don't know.
And then moving on the heat captured by that heat sink have to go thru the plastic housing minus the 4 screws/threads that hold the screw mount in place to the camera.
And plastic don't transport heat that well.
So the heat captured by a 1.5 x 1.5 cm heat sink have to go thru that first then to a degree a plastic "wall" and then find its way up a small " 6 mm " screw and on to the rest of the mounting solution.
