I got the ATC2K for Christmas. Mounted it to my helmet and went off-road bike riding to try it out. The camera works great.

I used the ATC-2K for a number of activities including bungee, skydiving, snowboarding and Go-Karting. Really cool gadget! I know Oregon Scientific promotes this for use with bikes, skateboards, skiing, and other sports. Great compact designWaterproofEasy to change SD and Batts None

Great Value- I was impressed I purchased this camera right before going on a mountain biking trip. AWSOME ACTION I mounted this on my x7 phenom barrel, and it works perfect for its use...can take a shot to the system and keep rollin...its tough...

this is a nice camera. it was used in my case as a helmet cam for skiing. i would suggest that it is used in a stationary position. I own several high end helmet cameras. These looked like a bargain and the lure of not having cables to mess with was too much to resist so I got two.

Small, smart, durable, excellent quality! What more could you want from a small camera like this?

Average, but a bargain. This unit is not bad, considering how cheap it is now. When attached to a motorcycle on a track day. Almost Perfect - But Flawed I had one of these (making the big mistake of buying it from French company - Pixmania - bad move) I didnt like the Spanis...

Put your money to better use Battery life is very poor. It does not mount to a helmet. I have had a lot of problems with recording. Sound is terrible. Bought the ATC 2000 primarily for filming ski/snowboard holiday. Mounting kit is comprehensive.

Wait for the next generation or seek out a different company. Product is simply not worth it yet. Small, easy use Bulky for a headcam.

Dear customer,

Thank you for choosing the Oregon Scientific ATC-2K. Designed and engineered with extreme precision, the Oregon Scientific ATC-2K allows you to record cool action movie footage. We recommend parents help their children with their Oregon Scientific ATC-2K. This manual is designed using technical information to allow you to achieve the best results. Some children may require your guidance setting up, learning and understanding how to use the different aspects of the ATC-2K.

ATC-2K is not shock-proof. You should avoid dropping it. For your safety, do not press the buttons on the camera during sports activities. Do not place the camera in a damp or dusty location for extended periods of time. This may cause a fire or an electrical shock. Do not leave the camera in places exposed to extremely high temperatures, such as under direct sunlight for extended periods of time. This may affect the camera housing and internal components. Clean the lens with a blower (typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one end that you pump to produce a stream of air out the other end), or wipe it with a soft cloth in a spiraling motion to remove fingerprints or dust. We recommend using Alkaline batteries in temperatures between 32 F to 104 F (0C to 40C). The working temperature range of a normal Alkaline AA battery is 32 F to 104 F (0C to 40C). Above or below this temperature may cause the batteries to malfunction. We recommend using Lithium batteries in temperatures below 32 F (0C). Turn off the camera before removing the batteries and the memory card. The card and the data may be damaged if the memory card is inserted or removed while the camera is still on. Remove the batteries and memory card before storing the camera for long periods of time, then keep it in a well-ventilated place to prevent mould. Under the following circumstances, have the camera repaired by qualified personnel: a) The plug is damaged or worn. b) The device has been dropped and/or the housing has been damaged. c) Liquid has entered the camera. Disclaimer: Oregon Scientific will not, under any circumstances, be responsible for injuries or property damages incurred during participation of any high-risk sport/activity not endorsed or recommended by Oregon Scientific. Should the camera malfunction under these circumstances, it would not be covered by the warranty. The warranty will cover manufacturing defects. Notes on copyright: Users are asked to note that the transfer of memory containing photos or data protected under copyright laws is only permissible within the restrictions imposed. Users assume all responsibility in the event that copyrights are violated by the use of this camera.

X) Troubleshooting

There's no display -Are the batteries properly installed? -Do the batteries need replacing? After the ATC-2K is connected to my PC, it cannot find the new drive in the, 'My Computer' folder -Make sure each end of the ATC-2K USB cable is properly and firmly connected. -Make sure your USB port is working properly. Try connecting another USB device into the port. If the other device does not work, the USB port may have a malfunction. In this case, contact your system manufacturer or the manufacturer of your USB card.
Troubleshooting (continued) I can't capture the video footage -Make sure there is enough space on the internal memory of ATC-2K or the SD card; the display will tell you how much time there is left for video recording. -Make sure the SD card is not locked if you have inserted the SD card. The letters Err will be displayed if the SD card is locked. The remaining time is not accurate -The remaining time is not always accurate, it is an estimate. -The remaining time depends not only on the time recorded, but on the color density of the video footage. Under conditions with high contrast, such as outdoors, the actual time available will be less than under low-contrast conditions, such as indoors. I can't play the video footage on my television -Make sure each end of the AV cable is properly and firmly connected to ATC-2K and to your television. -Make sure the ATC-2K is turned on. Some captured video footage cannot be found when SD card is inserted -The video footage may be stored on the internal memory. Connect the ATC-2K to your PC without an SD card, and it will show the files in the internal memory. 27

X) Troubleshooting

Before contacting an authorized service center at 1-800-853-8883 or sending an email to atc@oregonscientific.com. Please carry out the following simple checks as they may save you the time of an unnecessary service call. There's no display -Are the batteries properly installed? -Do the batteries need replacing? After ATC-2K is connected to my PC, it cannot find the new drive in My Computer folder -Make sure each end of the ATC-2K USB cable is properly and firmly connected. -Make sure your USB port is working properly. Try connecting another USB device into the port. If the other device does not work, the USB port may be malfunctioned. In this case, contact your system manufacturer or the manufacturer of your USB card. 26

Page 16

I can't capture the video footage -Make sure there is enough space on the internal memory of ATC-2K or the SD card;the display will tell you how much time there is left for video recording. -Make sure the SD card is not locked if you have inserted the SD card. The letters Err will be displayed if the SD card is locked. Troubleshooting (continued) The remaining time is not accurate -The remaining time is not always accurate because it is only an estimate. The remaining time depends not only on the time recorded, but on the color density of the video footage. Under conditions with high contrast, such as outdoors, the actual time available will be less than under low-contrast conditions, such as indoors. I can't play the video footage on my television -Make sure each end of the AV cable is properly and firmly connected to ATC-2K and to your television. -Make sure the ATC-2K is turned on. Some captured video footage cannot be found when SD card is inserted. -The video footage may be stored on the internal memory. Connect ATC-2K to your PC without an SD card, and it will show the files in the internal memory. 27
