a great free photo hosting site is www.photobucket.com it does not have the popups, spam and image compression like image shack does.

that images is pretty good, a little noisy but really good for a low cost camera.

I'd like to know that too. Right now, I can't find any HDDV 8800 auctions on Ebay. Lowest BuyItNow price is $169!

Yes that is the best I could find and digitaliquid has a not so friendly return policy.

Although I have been lurking here for some time I am new here.

I have an Aiptek PVR firmware 3300 & I am wondering if the SVP HDDV-8800 is better or if there are opinions from someone who has both or has used both? I am not happy with the picture quality from the pvr although the video is ok, on a sunny day I get dark washed out pictures using every setting or if they come out bright they seem over contrasted shaded areas are very dark & sunny areas are way too bright.

After researching what is available in the sub $200 level I have been looking at the SVP HDDV-8800 due to the MP, features & the fact that it is a ccd instead of the cmos in the aiptek.

Any & all suggestions would be welcome, especially if there is something else out there that I may have overlooked.

Thanks!

73sc........

Welcome aboard.

Aiptek MPVR , IS-DV 3 mb sensor has a brighter sensor in video

Aiptek PVR 5 mb sensor should be off by an active

Ispan DDV-920 5mb ccd sensor darker

for SVP ccd sensor I do not know, should have a criper, vivid picture

But never film with theSun in front all pics, andvideo becomes dark,

IS-DV in a car and the sun out does just that, while the MPVR works fine, while one member shows the Zoom-dv6 and it is dark in his vid same as IS-DV.


The SVP ifa member has one we'll wait awhile for a response .

So does the MPVR+ take the same video quality as the PVR butwith better stills?

I will upload what I am getting soon, the video is crisp & nice on my pc or on the 55 inch samsung tv but the pictures are junk.

Between the two the 5 meb sensor model MPVR+ or PVR vs the MPVR. PKDVr

not at all. the higher model tends to have an octive difference in the sensor.

When taking a shot pic on these particular hybrids, we must remember to not take facingto the sun, having the sun in front, but having it on your shoulder , or back.



the Aiptek .inc says the hybrid is great up to a 60 inch tv

1 3 meg jpeg is thredefault, are you snapping 6 or 8 interpolated (jaggied) ?

Are you counting the 10 second rule

from preparing your shot to after you finish , not to move the camera?

[line]



remember the hybrid does its job and we take for granted that these are not a proffessional model, that they do just fine, and serve the purpose, of leaving that 3000.00 model home. lets seewhatyou have in a pic but it will only be that online a pic?

I just bought an MPVR+. It works pretty well for $105. The user interface is easy. The battery last almost 3 hours and recharges in about 3 hours. I mainly bought it to record in-car video with a bullet cam. It works well enough for that application since I needed a unit that is really small and self contained that accepts external AV in and inexpensive if it got broken.



I could post some video and pictures if I knew how and where.
