So You both have the same camera and delay time is different?2 seconds is fine but 7-10 probably to many.

Like I said before it's 1-2 seconds that's all as just tested it again. Also I knew beforehand it had this delay before I got it for gutter clearing :rolleyes:

I did a quick gutter clear by ladder on a front of a house earlier as one of the brackets needed sorting . There was approx one metre return on the end wall that I could not get my ladder set due to bushes being in the way on next door side so to check if the downspout and gutter was clear.

 

To be honest without a camera I would have been stuffed for sure. Turns out was all clear and took me no time at all using my new gopro guttercam. If it had been blocked then I would have had to setup my guttervac.

 

Customer was impressed by my kit and reassured by seeing the vid that part did not need doing :D

I have to say nice quality pictures...Do you need that remote to take a picture or you can cut it out of the video with software?

At the mo for inspection work as I'm waiting for some bits I've ordered to arive I just set the gopro to record a vid then stick it where I want it to go. Then bring the pole back down and stop it recording. It has a bacpac screen fitted so I can playback the vid and show the customer.

 

To save pics from a vid I just connect the gopro to my pc and copy & past the vids to a folder. Then open the ones I want in realplayer where you can pick the individual frames you want to save as a pic.

 

Once I get the iphone tough case & quick realse strap mount for my pole I will be able to view and take pics there and then through the gopro app on my old ipone 3gs attached to the pole.

I can't see any need myself for that remote but would have liked the black edition gopro instead of the silver as it's a better spec camera

True but I just like to have the best but was so disappointed when they did not have any left in store that day when I needed it.

But I'm not going to do a test and drop it from 20-30' from the ground to land on concrete to see what happens that's for sure. :D

When using this which will be most of the time I will put the phone in a clear plastic bag so it don't get wet when it rains.

Quick update as the so say waterproof phone case and mounting strap bracket arrived today.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120897492612

 

In my opinion is not worth £30.48 as the case looks like cheap plastic and is not fully waterproof either. I found this out when dunked it in a bowl of water the inside of the case got wet (no phone in it as I'm not that silly). Then on further inspection seen the split/hole for the power socket for the phone in the rubber seal. Therfore I will not go dropping it into water but should be fine for the odd rain cloud I hope

 

The mounting bracket for the phone case is also cheap plastic but does work on a variety of things including a pole upto 38-40mm.

 

Another use is the case and mounting bracket could also come in handy if I just want to use my iphone 3gs as an inspection camera on its own attached to the top of a pole. Just need to set the camera recording before sticking it up where I want it to go. That's my backup plan that is if my gopro doesn't want to play ball.

 

Was only 4 left so I decided to buy one. So that's my survey pole kit sorted now:)

I'm still buzzing like a little kid as the phone worn on me forearm/wrist looks so cool.:rofl:

 

Not only that I swap arms quite a bit and move the guttervac pole in different directions/angles when clearing gutters. So for me it will be far better to wear the phone on my left wrist than trying to keep moving the phone mount around on the pole so I can still see what I'm doing. :)
