  1. I don't know which was way to go. If i put 4 AAs in a build for external power for an S600, would they last longer than 2 C cells? I normally have 2 eneloops in the camera and either energiser or duracell backups. I have room for either the 4 AAs or 2 Cs. Thanks.
  2. Terrific, that's what I was hoping..but didn't want to turn it in case i destroyed the lens. Thank you for your help.
  3. I'm sure sure it's a focus issue as i can take the camera out of the build and test it outside the case. If i compare a clip from it to another from a different camera taken from the same place it's not sharp but slightly out of focus in comparison. It really annoys me so I'm hoping someone can tell me how to adjust it.
  4. That's good. Does the lens need to be removed or can it be twisted a bit? I'm guessing the camera would need to be hooked up to the computer to see what is happening?
  5. I agree that eneloops are better, i got imedions that for what ever reason don't make good contact in my s600s...they work fine as external power in a battery holder but unreliable in the actual camera. I tried lifting the battery contacts in the camera, cleaned them with contact cleaner but the imedions will turn the camera on for a couple of seconds then it turns itself off kinda like the batteries are flat. Tried them in different cameras with the same result.
  6. I have a dxg 125 that seems to be a little out of focus. It is stock standard lens with no exchanger. I only use them for daytime videos and it annoys me when i get some good footage and its like there's a smudge on the glass. Does anyone know if the original fixed lens can be focused? Thanks
  7. I'm away for a few days and will try the other settings when I get home. Thanks. The XLPs are real dinosaurs when compared to something like the SS11 that we can use today.
  8. Thats great news! Hip replacement is major surgery as there's plenty to get through just to get to this actual joint. After six weeks the light at the end of the tunnel should be getting nice and bright. You should be well over the worst of it and heading for pain free walking rapidly from now on.
  9. OK, I got the cam, flipped the board and removed the 2 coin cells... both dead flat. Rather than try to replace them I added 2 aaa battery holders and connected them to the mounting block. The board already has an external on off switch. When I turned on the power the green led blinked 4 times and then 2 quick blinks. I turned it off and on a couple of times but the led doesn't always blink. After a while it detects movement, turns the camera on and takes 2 pics. The dip positions are as follows; 1 2 3 4 off. 5 on. 6 7 8 off. 9 on 10 11 off. 12 on. Are there better dip settings to be more like activity mode on the sniper boards? I tried looking at the XLP manual but found it quite confusing.
  10. Once again you have some great pics with beautiful colour.
  11. Thanks for that. I might have some more questions when I get hold of it as I know nothing about the dip positions. FYI: Another suggested mod on those boards: Thanks for that, much appreciated. I found the battery mod post here on hags and are hoping that will be a simple fix for the board... but all of the dips had me a bit worried, but not any more. Thanks again.
  12. Thanks for that. I might have some more questions when I get hold of it as I know nothing about the dip positions.
  13. Does anyone know anything about the board below. I don't actually have it yet as its in the post to me to see if I can get it working again. I can remember seeing something a while ago about changing the board power set up somehow but don't know if it was this board type or not. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you
  14. I tried the wack on the hand trick at the start and it turns off even with a gentle wack. Camera was listed as fully functional and in excellent condition, cost $40. Complained that the item was not as described and got a full refund. I got to keep it so it owes me nothing.
  15. OK I'll give it a try next weekend.. nothing to lose. Thanks
