I think every Action HD owner should have access to the new firmware.

Aiptek can post a download of the firmware on their website.

1. it seems to handles rolling shutter better "i'll retest it and try to clone fishy's example. I couldn't find my 4-way like fishy used. but ,i used a lawn mower blade and it looked like the sanyo's example┬* in fishy's test. I'll set it up in bright lighting and use my 4-way when I find it to be sure on that test."

2. colors are more natural "red colors"

3. zoom is quieter┬*

4.┬*it doesn't get as hot while using it using it
Hmm. that might be because of revised processing, or a revision of hardware (like the ambarella chip). I wonder how it compares against the DXG 595v video quality now. You would probably notice a difference in the data-rates (the DXG seemed to be higher on the limited videos I have here). If there is a hardware difference, the firmware might not make the same difference tool hardware.

BTW, I would be interested to know what it says for sensor model on the new ones?
