Often this is caused by an issue with the memory card.
Ensuring that your memory card is compatible, properly formatted, and in good working order can help to resolve recording issues such as freezing.
The SD Association's Formatter 4.0 is an effective tool for getting the most out of your memory card, and regularly formatting the card in the Stealth 2 settings menu is recommended.
You'll need a Class 10 memory card up to 32GB - we recommend the Sandisk Ultra range.
If you're experiencing persistent freezing please test a spare SD card to ensure that yours isn't the root cause.
Please also ensure you are running the latest firmware. If your camera does freeze for any reason, pressing the reset button under the rear hatch will get you back up and running quickly.
To carry out a master reset on your Stealth 2, press the reset button on the back of the camera - you'll need to remove the battery hatch and use a biro to press through the hole marked 'R,' on the back of the camera.
If you're having difficulty powering your Stealth 2 on, please carry out the following steps to try to determine the cause of the problem:
Power your camera on, and navigate to the Settings menu using the MODE button.
Scroll down to 'RC 1-1' using the CYCLE button and press 'ACTION'.
On the remote control, press 'ACTION'. The camera will beep and return to the Camera Settings menu if it has recognised the remote. The camera will display 'Successful' if the pairing has registered. If the camera displays 'Fail' please try to pair your remote again.
This is in fact normal and a feature that cannot be switched off. The Stealth 2 has been designed to work efficiently alongside the iOS and Android Drift Connect App, producing two video or photo files of the same recording - a high and low (thm) resolution.
The higher resolution file is designed to be played back or edited on your computer, while the .THM file is designed to work with your mobile device.
Please make sure you have downloaded the 'Drift Connect App' as our 'Drift App' is only compatible with Ghost and Ghost-S, and 'Drift Life' is compatible with the Compass only. Please make sure all other apps on your phone are closed down. The wireless connectivity range is up to 90m with a clear line of sight, and within this you shouldn't expect to experience any stability troubles. Please note the WiFi and the RC1-1 function should not be used at the same time.
'Rolling shutter' or 'Jelly' effect is usually due to the way that the camera is mounted. If the camera is mounted to a vibrating piece of bodywork or mount, you are likely to see a wobble in your video. Usually having the camera as close to the surface of the bodywork as possible will reduce this. Adding a rubber shim between a clamp mount (eg. handlebar mount) and the mounting surface can help to lessen vibration. Please also try relocating your camera to an area where there is less vibration for improved image quality.
If you're taking your first steps in video editing, iMovie (iOS) or Sony MoviEZ (Windows), will be good options. Both are fairly simple to use, don't require you to convert your files, and are either free or very affordable.
Windows Movie Maker is another free option, but unfortunately requires you to convert your files to a different format, such as .wmv. Quicktime Pro is the next step, and although it isn't free, it's very affordable. Some users love this software, whilst others don't get on with it so well, so it's worth downloading the free trial before parting with any cash.
Sony Vegas Pro (Windows), and Final Cut Pro (iOS) Adobe Premiere Pro (Windows) are great options at the more professional end of the spectrum. These are fairly expensive, and are most suitable for users with a reasonable level of editing experience.

In Car DVR Mode the Stealth 2 will record continuously, eliminating the need to stop and free up space on your memory card. When your storage is full, the camera will loop back to the beginning of your memory card, and start to record over the oldest footage first. The footage will be broken down into an interval of your choice - 1min, 3 min, 5 min, or 10 min. Powering the camera off (or cutting the USB power in 'Auto Car DVR Mode') will prevent the camera from overwriting recent footage, ensuring that the important moment is captured.
To enable Car DVR Mode, navigate to the Stealth 2 settings menu and select 'Auto' or 'M' (manual) car DVR mode. Auto mode is designed for use while connected to a a USB power supply - The camera will turn on and begin recording automatically when it detects power, and will turn off when power stops. Manual mode requires the user to power the camera on, and start recording manually.
A car icon on the live preview screen indicates that Car DVR mode is enabled.
Please note that Auto Car DVR Mode will need to be turned off in order to charge the camera.
The Stealth 2 requires a Class 10/UHS -1 memory card, up to 32GB in capacity. We recommend the Sandisk Ultra brand as these are known to be very reliable memory cards. Samsung, SDXC and UHS-3 versions of memory cards do sometimes cause issues and should be avoided.
A faulty, corrupt or incompatible memory card is likely to cause recording issues, or prevent the Stealth 2 from powering on.
The Stealth 2 has an internal rechargeable 1500mAh Lithium-Ion battery, allowing you to record continuously for hours between charges. The camera's LCD screen consumes power, so one of the best ways to extend battery life is to use the 'Backlight Timer' feature.
The camera will still function as normal when the screen backlight is off. It is possible to set the camera to power off entirely when it has been idle for a preset number of minutes (the duration can be chosen selecting 'Camera Auto Off' from the Camera Settings menu). This can be useful to reduce battery consumption if the camera is accidently left powered on.
The Stealth 2 can be charges using the Micro USB cable provided, and can be connected to any USB port with an output up to 5v/2A. USB mains adapters are the fasterst way to charge your camera.
To achieve the best possible image quality, set your camera to 1080p, 30fps. Higher frame rates are great for slow motion editing, but will require you to choose a lower resolution, and will affect the overall image quality. Ideal conditions are outdoors in natural light.
After 29 minutes of vdeo recording, the Stealth 2 will close the file in progress, and automatically open a new one - you won't have to start the recording again manually. This is a result of the file size limitations on MicroSD cards. A uniform 29 minute file duration means that the break in your video will be consistent and predictable, rather than changing each time you alter your settings. It is not possible to change the maximum video duration.
