Thought I was done upgrading for a few months :shifty: Caught wind of this last night as I doing my periodic website check for firmware. So far the only thing I'm getting is that it's smaller, uses micro SD and supposedly has better distortion free lens (this can be a nice thing if true). Everything thing else seem to be on par with the SP model, but it would be nice if software & component tweaks are done to add to the quality.

Doesn't have Wifi, but that's not a big deal for me since I have no need to review on my phone.

Me being an ITB product fanboy I placed my order for 1 unit which should be here by Wed or Thurs..

Thanks Kookm. Did you order through Ebay? Looking forward to the reviews. I'm looking in getting new cameras and putting my old ones in the rear. Thanks again

I'm hoping there are quality improvements, but if not its not a big deal.

Already picked up a 32GB Micro SDHC UI card to go along with it. I'm not really crazy about the usage of the smaller card due to the bad experiences I've had with it with reliability and removal when using the Blackvue DR-200. Even though it was the BV poor design and heat issues that were the root cause, it still left a bad taste in my mouth.

Some other things I've noticed is with the new player 1.34rev player. There are some settings that are not labeled that can be toggled with current units which I think is for use with the 1000HD. I tried a few different things, but don't notice any changes other that some gibberish within the app.

I am using the mount as reference which looks to be the same as the 100HD/SP. It looks to be not as wide.

Holla I don't know if you found it but I know if you go on ebay and search "seller:apple-ct" you should find other items for sale from them, then just send him a message and indicate you are interested in the camera, not the item you send the message for, that's how I did it. If someone has a direct email that is prob better of course.

Been busy.


The main issue is it has no GPS! Quality is not on par with 100HD-SP, but this is manufacturing variance issue with the lens on this unit not being as good as the current SP model. Or was it done to create separation between models by using a known batch that's has lower qual? Its the SAME component based on part#. I did a swap and the quality was improved on the 1000HD and SP quality declined.

I'll post some vids later today

Thanks for the followup! Those a great pictures.
Seems like a bad move from itronics, specially since it's more expensive than the SP.
So if I understand correctly, you loose GPS but you can get a GPS hooked up to it?
And it seems you can replay footage from the cam, not just view as you record? Was this and the micro SD the intended "upgrades" with regard to the SP then?
It would be pretty lame if they were trying to get rid of a bad batch of lenses... I would hope that you just got a bad unit.

Think NK had them shook they cut design short and started producing :shifty:

Correct. An external GPS will be an option in the near future.

And it seems you can replay footage from the cam, not just view as you record? Was this and the micro SD the intended "upgrades" with regard to the SP then?

There is no ability to review on the fly. That over-sized button is there to manually trigger an Event recording. And yes it was supposed to be an upgrade, but the HD-SP is still top dog.
The quality is significant between the 2 IMO.

It would be pretty lame if they were trying to get rid of a bad batch of lenses... I would hope that you just got a bad unit.

It's hard to say it's bad as it closely matches the quality of the Blackvue DR200G quality, so that along with no GPS has me thinking this is a lower end unit. I mean how else should one take it ...lol Unless it was done to reduce heat by moving the GPS chipset off-board? Then again heat issues isn't a problem the Itronics have. All of my other units have been ultrareliable.

Thanks for all the good info.
It would be cool if they allowed you to review on the fly or replay, that event button tricked me.
I actually have a more hi-tech approach to labeling a file as an event file, I just give the camera a little tap which triggers it, of course it only does it for the remainder of the minute file, but it's good enough for me so I can find the file easier later on:cool:
I'm glad you were able to adjust the lens, it always feels good to fix things.
Thanks for the vids, "event" included!
