Shielded Mobius Case Now Available

Shielded Mobius Case Now Available

Dec 10, 2014

Shielded Mobius Case Now Available; Based on input from a number of users in the RC (Radio Control) and Cycling markets; along with testing, we have decided to offer a shielded version of the Mobius camera. We are also offering the shielded camera housing and buttons for those that already have a Mobius camera. Who Needs it: Anyone using their Mobius in conjunction with another piece of electronics that may be susceptible to interference from RFI. At current, these seem to be devices that rely upon use of GPS systems; i.e. some remote control vehicles, cycling computers, navigation systems to name a few. The Video: The video shows a side by side test of a typical UN-shielded Mobius along with a totally shielded version of the Mobius. The test on the video was performed using an Android GPS App on a GalaxyS4 phone. Actual field tests were also conducted with known problem RC vehicles and also in the cycling market where individuals were using GPS devices. Both have yielded positive results. When viewing the video, pay attention to the (3) areas circled in Red.  (GPS Status, Accuracy & Bar Graph showing satellites in view and strength) Note that the “GPS status” 3D Fix drops out, “accuracy (in feet)” goes way up, and “bar graph” loses all satellites for the UN-shielded camera, but not with the shielded camera. The dramatic impact of this can change based on devices, day, location, indoors vs outdoors, cloud cover, etc. About Shielding (the basics): EMI/RFI (Electromagnetic Interference/Radio Frequency Interference) shielding is used to keep undesirable signals from either getting out or into a device. These signals can cause undesirable effects on the device itself or to other devices in close proximity or in the area. In simple terms, it can be thought of in relation to light. If you had a box or container that you didn’t want to have light get into or out of, you wouldn’t make it from a material that is translucent and you would want to minimize the amount of openings that the light could enter. So in the case of shielding, there needs to be an electrically conductive cage encompassing the device. Typical...

New Firmware for the Mobius Adds New Features/Functionality

The new firmware that has just released (v2.10) gives the Mobius ActionCam some new features and functionality. Most notably is the addition of the 25-50 fps options. This has been long awaited in markets which use PAL TV. Other new features now allows the date format to be set in one of (3) formats. Also, user can now select the mode the camera defaults to on Power Up. Both of which can be seem form the msetup screen shot below of the “Basic Sttings” tab. (msetup is developed and maintained by “Isoprop” which deserves many thanks for a great job on a great interface making the Mobius easier to use)             A new “Misc. Settings” tab has been created in msetup; which now includes the Webcam configuration selection. (MJPG or H.264 + audio) again, these can be seen by the screen shot of the “Misc Settings” tab below. Video Mode 1, Video Mode 2 & Photo mode now have their own configuration tabs, which now includes (4) different video or sound type file creations. Wide Dynamic Range now has a “Low Light” option, and the new 25-50 frame rates are now available. The Mobius now has the ability to capture time lapse videos in predetermined intervals or custom, where hours and minutes can be entered. (this custom interval is now also available for phots as well) The user can now also choose to time stamp videos and photos separately. Below are the screen shots from Isoprops msetup. The screeshot below is of the Advanced Image Settings tab from Isoprops msetup. Other changes have been made to address some of the previous issues having to with memory cards and their...
