LOL, I am not that sadistic am I? No

Hint #2:

my lame and likely wrong guess is: with the Vegas knob, you can program the modes in random order. So you can have say 3300mAh on 1 and say 320mAh on 2 and whatever your heart desires? Like the TriV with Vegas.

The order is not random . . . but what order am I talking about?

Let me ask the question this way. How many different ways can you think to input 2005 as you are keying this number in?

But you can do that with the earlier versions of Spy. I could have sworn I've programmed an "HML" setup on my spy before.

So from hint #2, I'm going to take that 4 5 6 1 2 3 has something to do with the easter egg. If not that sequence, then either 1 2 3 4 5 6 or 4 5 1 2 3 6. Or maybe all three sequences?

Um Hummm yes

There are 21 ways of programming the value 2005.

And they are?

Good to see you and thanks for having us all--like old times!!

Great post, and fabulous light. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Inspiring work, Data!

An unrelated question, letting me know that I am apparently out of the smart watch technology, what watch, and what (app) are you using to obviously control your video recording with it?

The watch is part of the Sony Action Cam HDR-AZ1VR. This camera optionally comes in a kit with the Live-View Remote. I have had it for a while now and I find it to be very good. The camera has a clip for holding the camera to the side of a baseball cap.

There are 21 ways of programming the value 2005.
These are two ways of programming 2005mA.

PU4
P1
2x(P5 P4)
P1
5x(P2 P1)
P0

Or

PU4
P1
2x(P5 P1)
5X(P2 P1)
P0

But neither will trigger the Easter egg. But you are close.

Cheers
Dave

12. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

Are you saying that the way we register the place value is considered a different way? i.e. P5 -> P1 is different than P5 -> P4. If that's the case, then there's a WHOLE LOT MORE than 21 ways to program 2005.

No, I am not saying that. I was just wondering how you got to 21. How would you do it even two different ways?

14. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

Hi Dave,

How about (or is this the wrong way of thinking about it)...

PU4
P1
20x(P4 P3)
P1
5x(P2 P1)
P0

Good, but that will not enable the Easter egg either. What was Hint #2, order!

16. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

You guys are very close, so here is the final hint required to solve the puzzle.

Hint #3

The algorithm in the STFu processor that is adding up the milliamps as you put them in does not care what order you put the digits in.

But the Easter egg algorithm does care!

Cheers
Dave

17. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

Ok, I'm not sure what I programmed in, but I can feel the level changes now.. I won't say too much so I don't spoil it. Also not sure which easter egg this is..

18. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

Congratulations we have a winner. You are free to spoil it.

19. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

Cool! It now vibrates with each level change..and is quite an effect as you change one level after another. That was very unexpected : )

20. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

The solution is putting in the 5 first and then putting in the 2000.

21. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

To clear it just do a PU3.

Vibrates?

All SPY 007 Sapphires have haptic feedback motors built inside the flashlight.

There are three seperate vibratory modes hidden in the easter eggs.

24. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

Yes, kind of like a cell phone or pager vibrates..with each click though : )

25. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

That is sickly awesome - I wish I never knew that! The torture!

26. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

That is so cool! I'm just figuring out how to mess with it. I needed Dave's awesome video to learn how to get it to 3300...haven't quite got the lingo down yet...

27. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

Took me a minute to register what happened. I thought the light let off a shock at first, lol. As I was staring at the emitter expecting a candle mode. Great job once again Data!

29. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

Ok can I get it in simple terms?

30. ## Re: Introducing the SPY 007 Sapphire

I second the "simple terms" request....
