So how do you turn OFF that annoying bug logo in the upper left? If not able to remove that, it would be a deal breaker for me.

Seems like I looked at a Z Edge cam a while back that had barrel or fisheye correction. Ambarella chip I think. I was about to buy one but it still relied on an internal battery. This one doesn't have the distortion correction from the looks of the video.

Probably possible to remove the logo by editing firmware that adds that image.
I'll ask the manufacturer to see if it's easily done.

It's much simpler than I thought.
Go to settings-stamp set up and unselect Logo stamp. :)
