Hi fishy, i live in casa grande,az and i just picked up the a hd+ 1080p(black) for 119.99 at my local target. They had them on the same rack as the black 720p ones(which are on sale). they scanned to the same price so I'm guessing they must not know the difference. Just before this discovery at target i was at the best buy across the street where the same camera was only in silver and for 169.99. i lucked out since there was only 3 more left on the rack with the other black 720p's. also at best buy got myself an 8gb sdhc class4 as well as a 4gb sdhc class 4 for a measly $5.40(thats right) due to my gift certificates i got for my birthday from best buy($50,20,10,10,5). total 135 dollars spent out of the 217 dollars i received for my returning the Action hd 1080p got extra money in my pocket plus i forgot to return the battery for the action hd so now i also have an extra battery too! I'm so stoked:blah: now if only i could edit with full quality. which forum could i use for that i have a pc dual operating system xp pro, and vista home premium, intel core2 duo 64-bit proccessor, 2.13ghz and 6gb of ddr2 ram, sli connected dual-nforce 7600gt video cards. any suggestions? my tv is the sony bravia xbr4 black with glass trim:G also could i possibly make my full hd quality videos somehow play on my ps3?

Hi Fishy,
if you compare the bad quality of a full zoomed A-HD 200
to the now full zoomed 3x zoom at the A-HD plus ( AHD 300)
in 1080p mode it is a fully difference.

Please fishy, can you make a new video with 1080p mode
and show the different zoom levels with small structures in the background,
so one can compare this versus the older cams ?

How is the zoom mode in 720p 60 frames/sec mode ?
Many thanks.

P.S: Make sure you download the original 1080p MOV file
and compare it versus another original MOV file
of the old A-HD zoom test...

I just picked up a HD+ at Best Buy for $149... I was given a $100 gift card, so basically got it for $50... I like it so far.. My firmware is 1.3, is there a new firmware that I can upgrade it too?

I use a MAC with iMovie to edit my videos.. The camera is mostly for my Motorcycle riding and posting on YouTube...

I just bought an A-HD+ in black and my firmware is 1.404 xs so yea, i just don't like the zoom one bit, has no sensitivity sensor, wish the action hd could have just also manual focus and it would be almost perfect for being a cheap camera at least ha

I just bought an A-HD+ and the firmware is 1.2

Where can we find the updated firmware and loader. Is it posted anywhere?


Also... has anyone had any success editing in Cinelerra?

Not sure about how to update the firmware that's just what mine came with. 1.404 it is but all of a sudden i'm having trouble with windows xp not recognizing the camera plugged in via usb 2.0 but my sdhc card reader does just fine for transfering files.
