No offline option means you can't use it in a remote environment with no connection. Need to fix that if they want users to come back.
One thing I learned from off roaders and sand runners...you can deflate your tires to reduce bumps (usually between 15 to 18 psi). Just keep it at 15mph or slower and have an air compressor handy to re-inflate them.
Do have a safety plan in place. Do try to use some sort of restraint to avoid falling out.
People might try using a pickup truck or van. Use a restraining belt for safety. Can do the same in a trunk if you think it through.
They made it pretty clear, this camera is going to be more for rental then purchase by the low budget indie crowd. Rental houses will purchase several and production companies will use them. Unless BMD improves reliability, they will be ignored by those very same people. (As a general rule).
I see where a lot of low budget "indie" movie makers think they should be given some special treatment just for being low budget and outside the studio system. 99% of those movies are just studio wannabes. Total crap. Sorry to break that to you, but it's true. I'd rather give my money to someone who I think has a good chance at making a good movie, regardless of their personal wealth. The rest is whining. I don't have a problem if they use sophisticated equipment and techniques as long as that's not the only thing they are selling. Going through crowd funding means you don't have a couple of rich executive producers telling you how to make your movie. You rarely see directors use their own money to make a movie. They go for investors (either the studio or experienced investor groups). If Spielberg went to kickstarter to fund a movie, I'd donate. Period. If some unknown low budget movie maker can't raise 10K on their own and make a good movie, why should I believe they will somehow do better with more? Make a low budget movie that people like, then come back and ask for more money on your second one.
