Ya, rgvcam vimeo's conversion times are excessive. Trevmar, there is no way I see of powering the cam other than the battery (there is no power input on the cam). Another feature of this cam that I did not mention is called "Face Detection Technology". Using this function you can identify and focus on up to 9 faces in a scene.

So does it have a separate charger? I remember when I trialled the HD700 the battery was charged in camera.

Does this model allow for in-camera clip trimming?

I just viewed the original video ie the downloaded mov file not just the vimeo playback. It seems the bitrate is not any higher than the 720p Sanyo's for this 1080p file and in fact seems to be a bit lower as both Quicktime and mediainfo report just a little over 8Mb/s. Oddly Quicktime reported this as 1920x1080 although it reports 1440x1080 in mediainfo and VLC player.

Personally I think the Aiptek Action HD has nicer video than this. The video from this camera appears a little washed out to me, especially the white on the house on the right. I'll reserve my judgement though untilI have seen a few more video clips.

Privite Idaho: There is no on cam video trimming. rgvcam: There is only a seperate battery charger for the cam, no power connector on the cam itself.

Looking at that clip, Media Info shows that the HD100 uses an Ambarella chip for encoding, at 8Mbps (1440x1080) with AVC [email protected], CABAC.

This compares with the HD700 which used a 'Sanyo Digital Camera' codec, AVC [email protected], at a rate of 9Mbps, 1280x720 30p

Don't forget that the Sanyo bitrate was for 720p as well, since the HD700 only goes as high as this. So I am assuming that the bitrate for the HD100 must be much lower for the same resolution and as it uses the Ambarella chip it's probably about 4Mb/s for which bobcat can verify this?

No, I measured the bitrate on the HD100 clip at 8Mbps, even though it uses an Ambarella chip.

Yes, the HD700 was 9Mbps at 1280x720 30p

Not sure what you were saying in the first sentence here as I agreed with you. I did say also that the HD100 was 8Mbps but was clarifying that it was for 1440x1080 which I thought was a bit low considering that the HD700 9Mbps bitrate was for 1280x720.

There are 3 "Quality" settings for each of the 3 resolutions the cam can take (640x480, 1280x720, 1440x1080). They are "Economy", "Standard", and "Fine", the bitrate increases as you select a higher setting. 1440x1080 with the "Fine" setting uses 8.2Mbps. 1280x720 with the "Fine" setting uses 6.1Mbps. 1280x720 with the "Standard" setting uses 5.1Mbps.
