FDCam Apple Tutorials: Adjusting the Settings On Your FDCam 720

Fire helmet cam mac tutorials.

In part two of our series on using your helmet cam with a Mac, we are going to change the settings on the camera.  Your FDCam-720 has user adjustable settings for SD card file overwriting (you tell the cam wether you want it to overwrite or turn off when SD is full), date/time stamping, and resolution / frame rate.

Adjusting the settings is optional and your helmet cam will work fine if you never change any of these.  In most cases, it will work better if you never change them.   However, like me, many of you don’t prefer the Timestamp on your videos, and you’ve asked for directions on how to change them on your Mac.  So here goes.

Really the process you will use is the same as it is on a PC, it just looks a little different:

-

Step 1:  Connect your FDCam to your Mac via the supplied USB cable.

The removable disk will be called "No Name" unless you have changed the name.

You will see a device drive icon appear on your screen. If this is your first time connecting this helmet cam or SD card, or if you’ve never renamed your camera, the drive will be called No Name.
