What is the better camera, the Aiptek A-HD or the Go-HD. I don't care about cost, I just want to know hands down what is the better camera. I have never seen a review compare the two against each other. Any info would be greatly apprecaited.

I believe I did a comparison review, but anyway.

You're only interested inthe inside of the Aiptek GO vz. A-HD

we will start with the A-Hd being the better of the GO

1 AV input, lens cap fixed lens longer battery life

these four items are the better of the GO.

so lets see what the GO has over the A-HD

1 3x optical zoom , , led lights electronic machro switch , extras battery remote control carrying case

In dollars the GO-Hd comes out the winner in extras.

In Dollars the A-Hdc omes out the winner with the budget.

Fixed focus uses less power, Auto focus more power

Fixed focus will get a clearer shot, while Auto focus will go in/out causing blurriness.

Discounted the A-HD had been dropped from 170 down to 119.00

dicounted the GO from 299 to 199

If you're asking me which one may be better of the two. a tough decision but I can easily convience you

Aiptek A-Hd getinga remote, a extra battery , andif I ever feel the need to upgrade I onlywasted a few dollars

Thanks fishy, I saw a lot of your reviews on both cameras but I guess I did not see the one where you did a comparison on the two. By the way I really did think you did an excellent review on both cameras. I saw the A-HD at Target and it was a shiney black instead of the blue, I got to play around with it, and I found when you zoomed in it looked blurry. From your review it looked like the zoom on the go-hd didn't not look blurry and maybe the A-HD looked that way because I was in the target store. I have been leaning towards the GO-HD because it looked a little bit smaller to fit in your pocket and the zoom looked better. Thanks for your feedback.

Thanks for the info fishy. I just went down to target and looked at the black A-HD again and the zoom looked better then it did before, maybe because it was during the day and not at night like last time. I almost bought it because I think the black looks so cool, but they want a 149.95 for it and I know I can the blue one online cheaper. Is the GO-HD any smaller then the A-HD or are they about the same size and weight.

hello

i'm having the same doubt deciding between the 2 cameras,

I will use it mainly for recording my 7months old daughter

and most of the vids will be inside the house



will the leds light of the go-hd make a difference?

in low light indoor filming?

thanks!

it is a debate.

If you are on a dark object more to the colours black it is not the best, but more on an object more to white it is better? You can only turn on the light and record, or turn off the light and record, You cannot record and turn on and off the light

Night mode is like any other feature it opens the shuter up for more light,

I would get the A-Hd and a reflector a professional ligh or a better camera.


Addtitional info the Autozofocus will always be working causing a blurr shot some times
