Excellent poll

as I already own the Aiptek series

Isay go with the Viewpoint. it is of the digilife and panasonic company, the a-snap model for sure on the newest version

the dv da1 vp model is the panasonis look alike

2.5 inch and power director are the only difference and probably a far better hybrid. Congrads first poll


Newegg.com reviews the hybrid read this one it'll change your mindreal fast...........


Decent Camera
Reviewed By: Camera Chick on 10/3/2006
Tech Level: somewhat high - Ownership: 1 week to 1 month


Pros: Very nice quality, easy to operate and master. I use it to listen to music, record videos and take picutres, and it works decently for everything except...

Cons: When recording a video you CANNOT zoom. You can zoom up to 8x in camera mode, but when in video mode the zoom is dis-abled. Had I know this I would not have purchased the product, and since that is so important to me I am considering a return of the product.

Other Thoughts: If the zoom is not an issue I would HIGHLY recommend this product. The owner's manual and instructions are not helpful at all, but overall the camera is self-explanatory.

Hey thanks for the advice........

i would like to know if you can hook the VuPoint digital camcorder to the t.v., vcr, dvd player, ect. and record the video coming out of the t.v.

i know u can do it with the aiptek mpvr but i want to know if i can do it with the VuPoint...

and i would like to know if you can zoom while recording video on the aiptek mpvr one cuz it would be nice to zoom.... but for now im still liking the VuPoint one better...

Thx
