Hi all I'm new to the forums. I picked up a Jazz HDV178 2 weeks ago for pretty cheap and figured I'd test it out for a bit to see if its worth keepin. I'm up in Canada and I've not see the Aiptek cams up here yet so I picked up the jazz to give it a go.

So far I can say that its pretty good as long as you've got a lot of light. I've uploaded some un-edited clips to vimeo



there will be more to come i just need the time to upload them

I like my HDV178. For the price it's a very good camera in my opinion. Many people are gobsmacked by the clarity of the videos for the price. Sure it's a little bit starved bandwidthwise for complex scenes but still not terrible all things considered and it's low light ability is actually not bad for a CMOS camera.

Out of all the cameras I have, I am finding this one is being carried by me quite often! I got into these type of cameras because of my young son. It's often the video you take OUTSIDE of birthday parties etc that is often the most enojable to watch.
