same look = irrelevant ----> same design ... fewer costs for production

the "inside life" makes difference :-)

Please share your findings with us and thank you for doing so!

The audio recording quality is very important to me as well.

Hi guys!

I got¬*an Aiptek Pocket DV Z500 plus¬*on the way. I'm also wondering how sound quality is compared to other small cams like the Sanyo Xacti HD700. My¬*fear is, tht it's still bad as the former Z300/GO-HD. The cam looks totally the same as the former but in silver.

Info/tests on this cam later this week.

I'll hopefully be getting mine on Friday if WalMart ships it on time. Aside from the weak mic, bad AF and 640x480 AV IN is there anything else I should check for in comparison to the GO-HD?

Check the shutter roll issues as well, the wobbly effect on fast movement.

Check the optical zoom and see if it is satisfactory. That is another point of contention with the GO HD. My first GO HD seemed to have okay zoom but the replacement did not.

Ahd300 AV-IN captures @ only 640x480!??!?!??!:X I'm really disappointed.....
Aiptek is probably afraid that nobody will buy the A-Hd200 no more....but i m not sure a D1 capture is enough to beat the Ahd300....

thought Ido a little searching two peoplesay they got it already and from Circuitcity called the aipte go hd + hmmmmmmmm

220 dealmac.com I think was the site I read

they say it is bad real bad and one is doing a side by sid ewith a sony cam and cannot post hisvid due to 10 meg space

I am sure the A-HD sold at 99.99 and holding at 119.99 the price will be 199.99 will drop to 150 in due time

the Go-HD was300 max 200 dropped holding at 200 will see it rise to 250, if not no lower than the 199.99 sites price

Holy hell, avaible on Walmart's site and JUST $200. Please when somebody gets this, put up 1080 and 720 uncompressed videos. If this does as good as I want, I will get this.
