We just ended a four week road trip in our VW Vanagon (Philadelphia PA to Key West FL) A failing starter motor's bendix gear knifed the trip, ending it two weeks early. Pulling previous trip-related posts together... (applies to 1080@60 fps) Using the SJ7 in its "motorcycle" case, as a dash cam, allowed the camera to heat up to absurdly high temperatures. Singed fingers aside, heat kills electronics. Absurdly high temperatures can only accelerate reaching end-of-life for the camera. Used as a dash cam mounted in the open frame, the camera "only" reached "sorta hot" to "hot" temps (subjective readings, of course) V1.20 crashed with a "pull the battery crash". I went back to V1.15, but didn't shoot much video with it; thank the shortened trip. I also saw the "flickering screen" effect with V1.21 (changed later to .20 and finally .15) but it cleared itself. No idea why it cleared up - magic? All of the video, shot with 1080p@60, is inverted (upright camera mount wasn't an option). EIS did a good job of coping with bumpy roads and vehicle motion (VW Vanagons are prone to "nodding" - motion in the pitch axis - when stopping and starting). Either heat or extended charging while using an external power source caused a battery to swell to "almost didn't come out" size. This is both an annoyance and a high-risk issue. The best way to set a lithium battery on fire is to short it externally or internally. Swelling compresses the battery structure which can cause a short. Using the camera solely on external power, without a battery is an annoyance but survivable. Overall, the results are essentially the same reported from my week-long motorcycle trip in July '17. On that trip, the camera ran from the start to end of the day's riding. On this trip, after shooting a day of looped dash cam video, it shot video only for "looks interesting" scenes. The biggest differences in the experience, in order of importance, are: Overheating using the motorcycle case and battery swelling Having to operate without a battery after a battery failed (swelling) Two firmware crashes After the "absurdly hot" episode, I decided to use a GP Hero 5 Black instead. That was an expensive learning experience. Using the SJ7, out of its case, proved to be tenable. Anyone want a deal on a slightly used GP Hero 5?
