Very relaxing, loved the short film.

the Tripod may work, just be careful with it not the best. i think makingyour own would bea challenge twist ties hmmmm vibration will shake it loose for I, in my car i am lucky the head restworks fine . just my pitted windshield lol out the sunroof , wit ha suction gps mount modded, next.

The macro is up to 2 inchs, and zoom should be desabled, was it? while for addtional information the A-HD/Plus macro is ont at max closest 20 inchs LOL

I liked the dial of the meter

If you're goingto do close up shots , on vimeo there is a person who does a great job, heturns the cam upside down, and instead of going super fast, or you think you are filming normal. slow down the vid gives it more character, and sapkire effect.

again great Job

Letus know BB now will charge 15% in certain areas,

Oh, and tommorrow I am going to return my A-HD and go to bestbuy and pick up a A-HD+ so I when I don't want the AF getting in the way....and for a second angle at weddings I (hope to) shoot.
Do you think the AF is so disturbing? Which are the situations where it has more troubles?

Can someone do a short macro video with AHD+ please ?
Is it worth choosing the Action Hd instead of AHD+ only for the macro function?
Thanks again!

Sorry, my macro i permently desabled it for these reasons

1. when in a shirt pocket or pants, will be switched in macro,and not knowing when shooting video or film, shots ruined

2 closest macro range 20 inchs anything closer wil not be macro.

the Action HD will film and still up to a 2 inch range,and electronic switch it is.

I had some difficulties posting links on my blog yesterday so I'm posting them here for the time being. Keep in mind thatthe camera was in full auto the whole time.




Set 1
Here is a couple of HD examples shot on different HD settings.

1440X1080 30p

1280X720 60p
http://www.bigupload.com/files/JWJMTRVQPL/FILE0003.MOV.zip.html



The imager of the A-HD+ is 5MP but there is also an 8MP photo mode so here is a couple of photo sizes to let you see for yourself if you think it marketing or not.

5MP

This morning's Best Buy flyer shows the A-HD+ for $149. I'll have to drop by and see if they actually have as it is not listed on their web site so I can check that way.

:-) Yes, I saw it on the review you posted on youtube.
I also watched the Navigon 2100 test on the snow

1080p jazz? I thought the one you got only did 720p. I prefer the Ambrella encoder though.

They didn't have any in yet at the local BB. They said 3-4 days.

I also found when I was at Fry's earlier this week it appears a vendor has recognized the majority of hybrids have a wider that 3" barrel lens and are selling a reasonably priced case for them. Looked perfect for an A-HD.
