Fishy, the problem with your video is mainly that, as a viewer, I have no idea what you are trying to show me. I keep looking at a picture of some RV at night, and the transistions keep comming. Nothing is explained. The RV is definatly not a thing of beauty, so I am guessing you are trying to get us to see something different between scenes, but I'm not sure what it is. However, Funkydmonkey is right about transition addiction. Most people, when first learning to edit video, use far too many fancy transitions and other special effects. They think it makes the video look more professional, but in reality it makes it look less professional. When a video is edited correctly, the average viewer shouldn't even notice the transition. Where a newbie editor tries to draw attention to transitions. In your case, I think you were trying to draw attention to the transitions because you were trying to compare camera shots or something, so that is probably okay (although some subtitles or audio would have been nice to tell us what we were looking at)

Generalg - I looked at your video. I think it is the first video clip from this camera I've seen that was taken on a tripod. I've always wanted to see how this camera would look when tripod mounted. The video quality was very nice. However, I suspect that the A-HD's lack of frame-buffer is causing parts of the RC car to appear to "wiggle" when in fact they were probably moving up and down very fast.

Adric.. the vid clip is removed?

A-HD, Go-Hd in natural use? no more.

In Gen's Vid if you want to realy look into detail?

1 You see the gas bubbles,

2 you see Horizontal lines

so rather just be very picky which some of users, it is just a economy camcorder LOL? never insulting anyone we're all friendly here?:G

now for Aud-VId issues yes this camera has them. not as bad?

This is something Aiptek avoids, andrefuses to fix since the 2nd stabilized camcorder on the market of 2005 of Septeber?

The video, with its sound wasawesome if you ask me I see nothingwrongwith a perfect shot, very colorful, vivid, and detailed? I could not ask for anything more, but possably a remote would be great if you decide this m odel is for you?

Purple Blue neon type color of a sign. I wanted to sit longer, but afety more an issue?

The Sign , and flood light grabs my attention, and said vid shoot me?

I do pay close attention at times, and i am totally sure thissign has the correct color filled in? take note that some letters are not present of missing the color?

Thi? is something I am , or just noticed.

I also noticed more and more, andwoonder if it is a sd card issue or camera? the camera needs rebooting on start up?

would a RESET BUTTON ever be placed in? if it is an ongoing issue, they say there is a black model hmmm updated or not?

For the "locked down" and motion sickness crowd (don't go see "The Kingdom") here are two clips that I shot today in the rain on a tripod:

This one is a zoomed shot that really shows the A-HD has digital zoom:

almost se those rain drops on the 1st vid?

2nd one, yes it has a 3x digital zoom LOL? why 2 where 4 is anormal number on most?

asalways digita has its moments but hey we're in Hi-DEF so it is far better than a 640x480 zoomed?

Appearently Aiptek still does not know how to make a digital zoom on the A-HD. How much of the sensor is actually used to produce the video image? I'm not sure on the A-HD, but it looks just like the digital zoom on my IS-DV2. In the case of mine, the sensor should have ample resolution to zoom in at least 3 or 4 times without becomming blocky. Instead they are reducing the image down to 640x480 BEFORE they zoom into it, which is dumb.

However.. I'm curious about something. If I owned an A-HD, more than likely I'd do a lot of my shooting in 720x480 mode since I wouldn't want to store the HD shots for everything. I'm curious if the digital zoom looks better in the 720x480 mode? Or, if their programmers are lazy morons, then they may very well be sampling a 720x480 picture and then zooming into that. I suppose that would be analagous to me using my IS-DV2 and setting it in 320x240 mode and using the digital zoom. I should try that tonight and see if it works better.

Oh... Aside from the zoom, the HD image looks spectacular, though. This particular image puts my Sanyo CG6 to shame. But I know my Sanyo would do better than the A-HD in several environments.

Adric do you use smart zoom or the standard on your IS-DV2 and do you see a difference?
