As a customer driven brand we need your help! Your suggestions and feedback dictates what we implement in our future models in terms of features and firmwares. Therefore, we genuinely invite ALL of you to detail below what you’d like to see in our future cameras and firmwares.
It’d also really benefit us to know what you use your camera for, and why you are making your suggestion…

I’ve already sent an email about this so it’s not news to Olfi, but anyway, here you are Olfi (et al).
Here’s my wishlist…
I do a lot of touring on my motorbike.
I’d like a camera which i can externally power using the waterproof case though.
I’d like to be able to attach an external mic so i can position the mic by my engine (vroom vroom)
I’d like an aluminium material mount to use on my bike as i don’t like or trust plastic ones!July 26, 2018 at 10:59 pm #10965AnonymousInactive
I’d like a camera that’s waterproof without the case please Olfi. I use my camera as a dashcam daily but use it on my mountain bike and motorbike too.July 27, 2018 at 12:31 am #10970AnonymousInactive
I’d like that too Shamari, but don’t do it Olfi, you’ll ruin your rep. it’s so unreliable. Wait until a better solution comes along. The camera is really small anyway, the case isn’t that big a deal
Look at the comments, never mind the actual video.
I did my homework before buying my Olfi. Both GoPro and Drift (the only other options for me) both had water damage complaints when i was looking.July 28, 2018 at 9:34 am #10972
Thanks guys, keep them coming!August 12, 2018 at 1:46 pm #10980AnonymousInactive
I’m a Horse rider from North Wales. I use the camera on my helmet or chest on hacks. It’s big enough to be noticed by passing vehicles but it’s not heavy so it’s ideal for me. I bought the camera from Bolesworth Horse Show.
It’d be great to be able to mark the videos when i’m out and something happens, or i see something worth keeping as i do edit some videos when i get the chance so it’ll be quicker if i know which part of my videos i need to go to without looking through all the footage.August 30, 2018 at 7:51 pm #10981AnonymousInactive

It’s been a while since anyone suggested anything through the forum but just FYI for forum post subscribers, the 2nd generation olfi one.five has been announced for release in a couple of weeks, with external mic, and time and date retentions amongst other things.

I like that idea too shamari, but it’s such an unreliable feature in cameras which are already out. Have you seen the YouTube video of the American guy in his swimming pool (which isn’t 10metres deep) having an open argument with GoPro about his water damaged camera? It’s meant to be waterproof but they wouldn’t give him a replacement camera because they don’t warranty for water damage, and he needed to prove he only went in his pool with it, and used it correctly?!October 28, 2018 at 9:34 am #10973

I would like an option for lens, possibly equivalent to 35mm in 35mm film format as a starting point, it still has a wide angle point of view but not quite as wide as normal. would still have great depth of focus as well
One other thing on a slightly lighter note, how about a wrap for the waterproof case to make it look like Kevin minion 🙂

I would love GPS tagging/logging. That way I could track my trips & associate photos with locations. Speed & elevation logging would be even better.February 25, 2019 at 5:27 pm #14125roberttbadgerParticipant
GPS tagging/logging. Definitely higher capacity batteries, 1hr 20mins with the 900 does not go far on a 100-mile cycle ride.February 26, 2019 at 10:55 am #14128Gregor_in_CornwallModerator
Hi Robert, which model of Olfi do you have? If it’s the latest Black version there is a case which is available with a weathproof access point to attach an external power bank if you think that would help with battery life.February 26, 2019 at 6:36 pm #14137roberttbadgerParticipant
Thanks for the quick response.
I have the new Olfi 1.5. Can you recommend a power bank? How long is the mini USB lead? I wear the camera on my helmet so it could be awkward. Another idea I am toying with is recharging the batteries with the charger plugged to my Garmin 1030 external powerpack. This would run as hub dynamo -> external power pack -> Olfi battery charger. Would this be viable? bearing in mind it can take up to 3hrs to fully charge the batteries in a conventional way.
