Here's a clip of an event that I videotaped recently at a beach.
Feel free to download the original native file.

Hey, fishycomics does the wide angle lens you had installed on your old Aiptek A-HD 720 work as well on the new A-HD+ 1080. I was interested in picking up a wide angle lens for my new cam to get better "in-car" video. Any recommendations as to what lens? Thanks.

Aiptek never mentions this in its manual.

when you record a vhs do not hit any buttons on the vcr at all. so what you must do is prepare

plug all in

play the tape and allow 10 secs before that start to play then only hit the Aiptek record at your marked spot

when you want to puse or stop DO NOT touch the vcr. only the AIp.

if and when you touch the aip it triggers a shut down a defect on AIpteks behalf not ours

old one or noew one the AIpte body style never changed so yes it will work. a member says Sunpak is now the only found brand while the pheonix cannot be found no more what a steal for 15 plus

I have not used it on my trips here b/c I left it home I only use it when doing close up reviews, I also find it when super humid on my sanyo itruins the shot moisture not the AIptek b/c less heat generated from the cam.

My Sunpak adapter arrived the other day from Amazon and it works fine. This is the CAM-2110 model. The one I purchased at Fry's was missing the adapter rings so I returned it. A wide angle adapter way reduces the amount of noticeable shake just as a telephoto adapter dramatically increases it. Wide angle is particularly good for indoor shots like parties, etc. I always use one with my Sony HC1.

Here's why I continue to purchase cheap hybrid cams..
http://vimeo.com/1146741

There's no way I would bring an expensive real camcorder to the beach because:
* I wouldn't leave it in the scortching sun while continually recording.
* Leave it by itself with any chance of theft
* Subject to sand, salt water, salt water mist
* Fishy/sandy hands (well, if i caught any fish)
* Too big and bulky

Besides that, I love the 60fps mode.

As I spent a lot of time filming in [email protected] I tend to forget I have the othersettings I will now set my cam and finish my tour in 1440x1080 @30f 1080P.

It is fair to see how the camera wil lreact in this video footage a little more space will be used but hey its well worth it.

so sit back in hte next week if I can get the clips up it be awesometo see how it works out.
