several versions of the 808, and because the
instructions are unclear there is some confusion
about how to create the file that sets the date. The
instructions say to create a text file
in the root of the
storage TF card, "then change
the file name in "TAG", than open the "TAG"
right something." Ergo the
confusion. After all this time they haven't fixed
the wording in the instructions.
This how to do
it in Windows. Open Notepad and type:
NOTE: After each line type an empty space
with the spacebar. Do not press <Enter> after
the last line.
Save it to the camera as a .txt file with the name TAG
and make sure the name "TAG" is in upper case.
put in a different date and time than shown in the
example. There isn't a clock in the camera, so don't
put "now" as the time and expect it to be different
in an hour. Put in the time the movie will be taken.
When you look at
the camera card it should look like this:
I'm using the
cheap $8 cameras. I think I have a #3 and a #11.
There is a new version (#16) as of 2014 that records in HD and
sells for $40. I haven't tried one yet but
I've read that the date issue is still a problem.
