Hello.
Just got round to fitting the super capacitor. Now when I plug it into the PC I get a yellow light permanently on, but cannot record, it seems. Shutter button switches the camera back off again. Mode button no longer switches between modes.
Any thoughts gepreatly appreciated.
Cheers
Al

It is normal for the camera to enter standby mode when plugged into a PC because the camera is making a data connection with your computer. If you connect the camera to an external battery bank or plug it into a USB charger in your car it should work fine.

You're welcome! I highly recommend reading the Mobius Instruction Manual which is available HERE.
The manual explains the PC connection issue you encountered, for example.
