I ordered one for me and another for a friend. I look forward to mounting it on my USP.
My friend looks forward to buying a gun to mount to the SHOTCAMWink
They're supposed to arrive on Wednesday.

They are all gone.  Once I process the orders that have acrued since Friday at 5:00 pm there might be some that free up due to credit card declines but I would not count on it.  We ran out around 2:00 pm Saturday.

I'm sure your email is around here somewhere.  I am busy making boxes to ship out all the orders tomorrow but will get our customer service people to contact you tomorrow to figure out whatever the problem is.

Thanks Chris. They should have the right credit card on file from all my recent scope orders, that's the one they need to be using.

Thanks for the offer!  My order is in.

Chris,

I have some questions:

1) What battery does the ShotCam use?
2) If proprietary, where can I get replacement batteries, and how much do they cost?
3) I will mount this on an AR15; what sort of remote, or tape switch does this unit take?

Thanks,
mbogo

1.  I have no idea, just saw my first ShotCam on Friday and it does not look like something you will get at Wal-Mart.  You'll need to contact Burris.
 
2.  We are looking into this but have yet to get a response from Burris.
 
3.  It does not come with one but some of the images show it with one.  It might be available as an accessorie from Burris.  We do not have any.

Ok guys, we've gone through all of the orders and free'd up some due to credit card issues and suspected fraudulent orders.
 
We also put a limit on them of 2 per person to keep people from buying them in large quantities like they did the first go round.
 
I don't have to tell anyone that if you want one you better JUMP ON IT NOW!  Our servers have been smokin' since we launched this deal and what is left won't make it past today.

headed for the Lay-away line. Thinking the old red rider might can use one of these. Then I can find out who has been shooting the cat from next door.

Got my first one today, pretty cool.


Pics coming.


Wanna see it on a suppressed 1911 or an HK45?  Either way, it is definitely medium pimp'in.

I should have video of a hog's life ending soon, then it will be pimp'in large.

Got mine, played with it, very cool.

First thoughts:

1.  Battery lasts 4 hours on pause (ready to take video with the press of one button) but in standby for 9 days.  I need to take a magnet and figure out how to put it in standby - since they don't make a holster for my gun.

2.  Video quality is better than I expected.  It needs lots of light to look its best, but the light on the device serves that purpose well.

3.  It is heavy.  You could say "robust" or "not fragile", say what you will, it is heavy.

4.  The weight at the muzzle-end of a handgun changes the balance of the weapon, spend time on the range before considering yourself ready to use in a real recordable situation.

5.  The USB connection is 1.1 rather than 2.0, it's a minor thing, but larger videos take awhile to push to the computer.  Minor issue.

6.  The light is bright, the laser is brighter, everything works as it should - thus far.

Today's objective is to find the area that is sensitive to magnetism; with that, I can put it in standby and have it start recording when I remove the magnet.  I'll let you know how that goes.

Respect is something you earn.
Equality is something you whine about not being given.

Quote USB connection is 1.1


USB 1.1?  WTH?  Whacko  Why would they use such a slow and outdated standard?

RC,

What does the label on the battery say?

Thanks,

FYI: a small magnet attached to the rail interface (the metal piece that attaches the shotcam to the 1913 rail) will put the device in standby mode.  Pull the magnet and the camera immediately starts recording.

Cool beans.
