I just got the Action HD. This forum had a great deal to do with it and I'm quite happy with it. It would be great if I could use it as a helmet cam for skydiving. The motion of my helmet is realitivly smooth and in good light so I think the CMOS will be OK. At least worth trying. I understand the description how to make the plug but have no idea why it works. Could I get an explanation? I have some general understanding of electronics and circuts, but don't know the specifics of the circuits in the camera. Anyone know where I could get a schematic of the Action HD?
Thanks in advance. I'm looking forward to being able to cotribute.

The A-HD camera has a switch inside the AV in / out jack that will sense when a cable is connected to it. The LCD display will shut off if you set the camerafor "AV out" mode. This is normal operation, it will turn off the LCD and you can see the same display on whatever TV you connect the AV out cable to.

I do not think there will be any schematic available for any of these cameras. They are not repaired in the field.

Thanks for the reply and explanation.
I will be using this information. It will be awhile before they let me wear a helmet cam while skydiving but I'll post when I know how it works.
Thanks
