Rain-repellent camera lens


By rain-repellent, I don't mean waterproof. The camera is already waterproof.


What is mean is a camera lens design that will be more resistant to water drops gathering when riding.


The current (C5) design is a convex lens cover that appears to hold water between the lens cover and the outer housing. If the glass was flat against the outer housing - or even protruded a little past the housing - I am sure that rain would dissipate more easily.


Until then, I get rain drops that gather in the small recess between outer housing and lens cover.


Does my description make sense?

Thank you for posting, and sorry for delayed reply as the forum has been fulfilled by spamming messages.


Your distribution is very clear and especially the video link.


We have been thinking how to get such issue fixed.


Will see if to make the lens to be more smooth.

I have similar problems with the Honda civic rear dash camera. I ended buying RainX, and cleaning the lens with it. It helps!

  • Hi, Last week we(in Europe) changed time to be one hour back(-1h), due to switching from summer to winter time. My C5 doesn't want to switch to correct time and stays one hour ahead. There is no way to change it through the app settings manually. C5 firmware and the App on the smartphone(iPhone 6) are both last versions. I leaved the Phone app connected through the WiFi to C5 permanently, everything works fine, phone has the right time, but C5 still works with timestamp 1 hour ahead. What to do to fix that?
  • The camera doesn't connect, and the red light stays on, so I have no idea if it has recorded anything, the forum is no help, waste of money!
  • Hello, I bought a replacement C5 for a broken one. I updated the firmware and it seems to behave normally but I cannot turn off the WiFi. When I press the green button it flashes and eventually reconnects. It never gives the 1 flash per second. Has there been a change? Thanks.
