      did you dump (backup) BRN firmware file from this camera? and how?
      i ordered an Amkov SPCA6350M camera that is similar to an Eken H9R from Aliexpress and I want to get a dump of its firmware.

      The backup procedure for SPCA1628 based cams is different from SPCA6350, but you can use this step by step guide for Eken H9: http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showt...#entry47019203

      It's in Russian so here is my short translation:
      1. Download 'Eken+h9_Drojjeed_2015.rar' https://drive.google.com/file/d/1z4u...ew?usp=sharing
      2. Unpack and run 'SPCA6350_v1001.exe' (driver)
      3. Restart Windows and disable driver signature verification
      4. Connect your cam to USB with battery removed and 'up' button pressed - 'Icatch Null Device 6350' or 'Icatch' device should appear in device manager
      5. Run 'frm.exe' from 'download' folder
      6. Check Backup/Restore RSV in Options, and set Flashtype to SPI
      7. Switch to Advanced tab, right-click RSV and select GET - then you'll be asked for backup path

        Hi, I am new on this forum.

        I did bought the F80 camera expecting that I can uses it as an 720p action cam. However I am experimenting lots of drop frames at 720p ( an amazing number of drop frame at 1080p ).

        Do you know if there is any alternates firmware for this camera. or if it is an useless devise?

        Thanks
        Andre

          Thanks Petesimon for the feedback.

          I use a Class 10 card ( Sandisk Ultra ), a I was filming outdoor in plain daylight doing a smooth panning.

          Regards
          Andre

          try a smaller size card (8gb, or 16gb), and try a different brand or different speed card, and format the card inside the camera, but if that isn't good, then format the card as FAT32 with 64 kb allocation unit inside a computer http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/guiformat.htm

          Thanks again for the hint.

          I did reformat my SD card ( which was 32kB alloc ) to 64 kB alloc, the problem was worst. This give me the idea to reformat with smaller allocation block.
          When formatted with 4kB block, the 720p footage look a lot better, in a very short test movie.

          I will make more tests over the next weekend.

          Thanks-you very much for your assistance.

        Does anyone know if this camera's micro usb can be connected to a video transmitter?

          Seems like the microusb socket pin #4 is not hardwired to act as composite AV-out. Moreover there is no settings option to switch between PAL/NTSC...

          if HDMI port is there, then yes but a HDMI to analog video converter device would be needed

        What would be a good camera to get that I could do this with?

        The camera does have video out to a PC though. When I hook it up to my PC it will send video to it. How is that possible?

          When you connect it to a PC it turns into UVC/webcam mode and starts streaming in digital encoded format.

        Hey, I just got a camera branded under "iBuy", but it has an SPCA1521A chip an also has the sj4000 in the lens wire... Do you think i can use the backup you posted instead of my original firmware? My camera gets a lot of frame drops at any resolution using a 16gb class 10 sony micro sd

          Please backup your firmware first.

        I wasn´t able to backup using the method you posted earlier, my camera is not listed as iCatch or similar, it just says "Generic Image Device", and frm.exe is not getting it either. Any ideas?

          Oh, you should use 1628 chip driver and older ISP TOOL for it (not frm.exe).

            Ops! Hehe, I have now started to think on a sensor upgrade... but first, how do I flash the .img file?

            Also, is there a path to follow to change the sensor on my cam?

            I saw some guys swapped Eken H9SE GC4603 sensor with OV4689 and after proper firmware flashing it worked fine.

            IMG files can be flashed with an SPI programmer device.

          Thanks nutsey! You have really helped me a lot
          Today I recieved another camera, but this time I cannot tell the chip it has, nor the manufacturer, because it came in the generic SJ4000-like box, and after disassembly, theres not too much to look at, I mean, the chips are not branded and are smaller then what ive seen. I know the sensor is a VGA OV7675 CMOS, but the only thing I got with the other internals was the "1710" printing. could you help me figure out what type of cheap board am I looking at?

            Oh, this is something not very common among action cams. I believe it could be a Syntec chip.
