    Good evening

    Just received my Olfo one.five black.

    I’m really impressed. However, having turned motion detection on, I’ll be damned if I can work out how to turn it off! Could some kind soul enlighten me, please?

    BTW I’m going to use it to film aerobatics in a Zlin 326. Anyone here have any tips?


    Hi Tim,

    Ah Motion Detect – Yes i certainly can see why this would be challenging to turn off when you don’t know how (note to self to add this little gem of information to the User manual – I will!)

    To turn Motion Detect off, cover the lens with your hand to stop any light from entering the sensor (this will stop the camera from stop starting motion detect whilst you’re trying to turn it off). Next, stop the camera from recording (as i imagine that it’s detected motion and activated the 10 second record time if you have a memory card inserted), and then go into your Main Menu and select the video/photo option (the 1st Mode option available)

    If you take your memory card out, you can change from this mode much easier (if you’re struggling) as it won’t start recording/detecting motion on its own.

    Selecting Video/Photo Mode will turn off all Modes – Motion Detect, Dashcam, Underwater, Burst etc

    To Turn off specific settings (stabilisation, distortion correction etc), you’d need to either go into the Quick menu for that mode by pressing and holding the down arrow on the side of your camera to bring it up the quick menu for that Mode, or by going into the Main Setup menu (the last option in the Main Menu) and finding the feature that you want to adjust and setting it to Off.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I actually fixed the problem before your email came pinging in by just doing a default reset.

    I’ll make sure not to turn motion detection on in the future…

    I’m just starting to play with the camera and I’m really quite impressed. We’ll stick it in our aeroplane today and see how it performs.

    One hardware issue so far is that the one of the press-fit brass threaded inserts in the skeleton cradle rotated loose and then came out altogether when tightening up a mount.

    I fixed this with a generous helping of super glue, but thought you’d like to know about the issue.

    Again, thanks for your help.


    Hi Tim, glad to see that you have sorted the settings out. I would love to see some of the footage you are shooting from your Zlin! that would be epic šŸ™‚

    I haven’t yet cut a British
    Video of our aerobatics, but here’s a link to a formation sortie last week.

    The Olfi feed is the fixed view over the pilot’s shoulder, the moving camera was my Google pixel 2.

    The flight was arranged at the last second, so the shoot want will planned, but it turned out quite well. I edited the video in Shotcut.
