Your Files

When you VIEW your content for the first time on the card
from a desktop computer you will see a folder
containing precious files. 

This is normal and a great thing.

You have content to save and

later to edit in post production software.

This is the contents of a camera from approximately two days of recording.  Here you can see the files are split into 537.2 mb sections. This is normal camera operations. Due to the "Download to phone feature" created by Afidus. Downloading to phone has a file size limiter. Which at this time will not exceed 537.2 mb.


Note: These files are also split into two days per the custom recording schedule set using the "Split File By Date" feature which is turned on. 

next steps
save & transfer footage then edit


We think about time-all the time.


When your project is complete transferring and saving your footage is the next critical step of the process. The fastest and most reliable method is to remove and save the content using a mSD adapter or card reader to your computer system. 



Remove the card

When you remove the card from the camera use the mSD adapter/card reader to transfer the footage to your computer system for the fastest content transfer.

Content save time approx

3 minutes for 19 GB of files  



Use the USB cord

Connect the cord to the camera USB power port and to your computer system. This will allow for data transfer only.


Content save time approx

13 minutes for 19 GB of files  



Download to phone

This method is only recommended for one clip. This is the slowest transfer method.

Content save time approx.

3.5 minutes per 532mb file. 


Method 2: Use the cord

When the camera is connected to the computer this is (slow) data transfer. It is not for recharging/controlling/programming the camera.

The camera will be detected by your computer and you will be given the option to explore the cameras DCIM folder for the files you want to transfer. Select, or drag and drop, the files you want to transfer including the .LOG file.

Please note, you will not be able to enter transfer mode if the camera is still recording. Either turn the camera off, or have the camera in standby (Green LED on) before you can access transfer mode. 

When you connect to a computer it will time out due to power saving programing users do not have control of.
