    I am going to capture my entry tomorrow for both the video and photo will feature the same basic subject, so maybe one of them will win if i am lucky.
    And to my amazement the weather forecast have again been changed, but this time for the better, so i might even be lucky to capture my entry during a sunny patch.

    I had to abandon this after seeing footage.
    First off i run latest FW on the SJ7 and i forgot ti revert to a better functioning slowmotion firmware, so the 240 FPS video i got was not that good.
    And the pictures i took at the same time also dident come out as good as i wanted, but that was more down to bad luck with timing as the thing i wanted to photograph was over in the blink of a eye.

    But the video do demonstrate what we thing of products sold online as SJcam products but are far from that ( fake )

    No i have not uploaded i think the footage are too bad, i used the newest firmware ( beta ) and it do not work well with slowmotion recordings.
    Instead i have added something about that to the error document ( bitrate for 720p / 240 FPS slow motion are just 6 mbit for the output file )

    I knew this but i forgot to load a older firmware that do better with slow motion.

    My pictures also was bad timing so also not as good as i would have hoped for, i used burst photo and 20 photos, but this action are over in a split second so only 2 pictures have any action on them.
    And though i used the 2 SJ6 cameras i only got pictures from one of them as i dident press the button good enough it seem, a little stressfull to be standing so close to a "bullets" path.

    So the best thing of the day was there are now one less fake SJ camera in the world :D
