hi recently purchased a aiptek 1080p

Action HD - 1080P High Definition Camcorder w/ Optical Zoom

thats the model number and link.

heres the werid thing when i record and press the zoom in button the camera it self starts making a werid noise and when i stop zooming in, and just record the noise continues from the camera until i turn off the machine is this normal? i feel like something is broken about the machine. does this camera has alot of grain? just curious when i export my videos out the videos have alot of grain and noise. maybe poor lighting? does any one know where to get a lens cap also =/ i dont know whats the size of it is it a 25mm or a 35mm i dont know which size should i get. also what tripods work for this? im searchign through ebay.com and trying to figure out what works.

You hear what we now like to call gear noise, two motors run back and foward. these motors are realy small, andcause noise how much depends on th user.

and posted link, are the same, will help show you firmware as well. What firmware is on the camcorder. just the top line ver 1.308 is what I m running that has very low noise , hardely heard. I am sure yous sounds like an older one.
