They still have to do something about that maximum operating temperatures.
specs above state “0 to 40°C (0 to 104°F)”
and if it is 0 to 40C that is 32 to 104F.

I guess that the Theta is an indoor camera here in Las Vegas. Today was 105F tomorrow it will hit 107F and the next day 106F.


#4

Hope you have the air conditioning in tip-top shape, Bob!


#5

Fingers crossed. So far, so good.


#6

Bob, do you know anything about using longer USB cables with a THETA? I’m looking to set it up with something like a 20ft cable but am worried that some cables don’t seem to work. Any hints?


#7

20 feet is pushing the limit on USB data cables. I would try the best quality USB extension cable that I could find. This looks like a potential candidate. https://www.amazon.com/Extension-Extender-Playstation-Keyboard-Printer/dp/B07C2X984S/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1529083196&sr=8-3&keywords=20+usb+extension+cable&dpID=41XKeXHiRIL&preST=SY300_QL70&dpSrc=srch

It is rated for USB 3 speeds so it should be beefier and better built then a USB 2 extension.


#8

Oh, excellent. And extender instead of a full cable, interesting. I ordered this guy, fingers crossed. If it doesn’t work, I’ll try your suggestion. Appreciate you taking a look and forwarding the link.


#9

The one that you ordered looks like a nonstandard configuration. Most likely just meant to provide power and not data.

I suggested an extension cable because they are normally just wired pin to pin so they will take any configuration by just adding your “approved” cable to it.


#10

Oof. Well, It’s arriving today, so I’ll test it and see. If it doesn’t send data, I’ll probably try your suggestion. Thanks.
