    New Video Recorder Coming October 2013 - Vievu - 2013

    Since Virginia is a one party consent state with regard to recording, it is pretty common for those of us that Open carry to also have a digital Audio recorder ON and RECORDING whilst openly carrying. I have played with some VIDEO cameras.. but they were bulky or not really what I wanted. Looks like VIEVU is going to be changing that.

    and before Peter and Skid suggest something about my having ANY financial interest in this product.. I do not.

    I couldn't watch the video Ed. Where to wear it is always the problem with me. If it has a very wide angle, fast lens....something like an F1.2 and 120 degrees....it should work pretty well.

    Getting better - I own two of the old pro clip on recorders. The biggest issue is the HUGE AVI files these things generate and the limit of only 90min of battery life, then having to wait for them to recharge. Maybe in a few years they will work out a real-time swap battery? They are good, but have some down sides, one of them being they are VERY overt. Depending on where you clip them you may not get a "level" picture do to the weight of the camera allowing it to shift on your clothing. Overall good cameras for OC just be ready to deploy a back-up camera near the dreaded 90 min mark. This new model having live streaming capability to a webserver is a huge plus.

    I think it was a commercial. I don't think they're out of prototype yet....looked like they're still trying to get seed money.

    When it's available, it will be a question of price. This appears to be a high end product.

    How would he do this when the post clearly states that it is not available until October?

    1. Yeah. 199.00 (if you order now)
    2. President of the company says they will make it anyway even if they don't hit their fundraising goal.

    Here is what it will supplement/replace for me:

    All well and good - BUT!

    Will this newest version of sliced bread prevent the lens from recording the ground and your feet, as opposed to whatever is happening in front of you?

    Yes, one of my pet peeves is the failure to keep the camera level and facing forward. Wel, that and one certain cop who apparently had a body deformity that pushed one shoulder up higher than the other which unfortunately caused his body camera to point downwards. (Certainly you don't think he was intentionally trying to not record the activity, do you?)

    I understand that audio takes far less room than video, which is why I can record 36+ hours of audio onto a mini smart card. Apparently audio also takes less power than video, which is why I can record 36+ hours of audio on one battery. While expensive (some costing even more than "all get out") there are lithium film batteries that might give the same life to video recording as NiMH batteries currently can give to audio recording. As important as this issue is, I would be most likely willing to pay up to "all get out" for a video reorder coupled with a battery that gave the same run time.

    Storing all that data apparently should not be that difficult, since my <$25 dashcam records 20 15-minute long files to a smart card before starting to write over file #1. All I want to do is be able to untether it from the cigarette lighter outlet long enough to go all day (OK, maybe half a day) before I have to sawp batteries and have recharging the batteries not require a physics degree. Is that too much to ask?

    stay safe.
