I've just finished 2 different video homebrews, the first is a 4k action cam and judging from backyard testing produces excellent quality videos. Its controlled by a RCDavis Safari control board with some custom coding by Ralph and I thank him for his help. There is a sound amp for enhanced sound.

Second build is a go pro hero2 in a refurbished el cheapo crappy 4k build that I did some time ago. Threw the el cheapo into the bin and hooked up the go pro to the Bigfoot board and sound amp. Worked with the same code I had so no need to change anything else.
The go pro is a bit quicker than the 4k to start recording but as I mainly target Sambar that won't be a problem because they usually spend from 10 to 15 minutes wallowing, rubbing or at a scrape.

Both cams will be set up in the bush at the weekend and I'll leave them out for a few weeks then hopefully have some videos to share.

4k video with sound amp and 3 18650 batteries for backup.

Look great John, l can't wait for you to report back on the results.I am still waiting for my Gopro and parts to arrive. Easter and Anzac day sure slowed down the mail.
Are those 18650 batteries you have there are they rechargeable?

No preference with the batteries, I got those from eBay....certainly not the rolls Royce of 18650 batteries but they work for me.

Thanks for posting pics of your builds. Not many do this nowadays. Can’t wait to see some videos. They look great.

Hi Jim I've just got one of your sound boards out in the bush now for its first real test.
I had it set up at home and was getting a lot of wind type interference even when it's calm. Hopefully away from power lines and highway traffic the interference will disappear. Thanks again for your design and Gerber files.
