but I thought their sales pitch was that it was all tried and tested because they provide a super duper model to the forces and police???

are well at least I get a reprieve for a bit!!!

will you get an extra discount though?? :)

Replacement model Vee Cam will have 8 hours recording capacity instead of four on the model they were supposed to send.

This is the only good news.

Its kind of not relevant to me as unless you can free up space on there by editing on unit i will still need something to dump the files on to when on holiday.

Hopefully there is a way to edit down film on unit. I say this as the game plan is kit up switch on to record and don't switch off till back on the boat so there could be literally hours of nothing video to delete with a few moments of action near the end as we exit the water.

I was sooooooo excited about this but not having it for Mexico is a major kick in the balls.

Well I for one am not even going to be tempted until I see how they perform at depth. Real trials not rhetoric.

They are now 100m rated. I discussed it with them and they said in tests the screens implode at 150m Buttons dont work below 10m. Just switch it on and go.

Point taken about the depth rating Mark, but I still want to see how they perform, quality etc at depth.

Mark, can you not approach them explaining that ths was a major reason for your decision to buy, and can they not lend you a development model for Mexico.

I know you are a bit shy and wouldn't like to ask, :rolleyes: but i may be worth a call.

Apparently not, there is some shalow footage available I believe, but nothing at depth. We did offer to test one on some recent trips, but could not get hold of one.

Patience Grasshopper.

I have some deep footage and the VeeCam is still being improved based on testing IIRC.

It's a nice piece of kit and I agree with Chasey that the way to use this is to turn it on and forget about it till you get home. Bear in mind there is a plethora of camera options from the military side so there is huge upgrade potential in the future. Squaddie-proof is not the same as diver-proof however and I think it's to Persides' credit that they have proved the VeeCam is not vapourware and are delaying release until it is ready.
