Oh boy i got it on tape. ust that every time I started a plane went by Lol when I wanted to film someone came by. and then well i gave up.

I can say I was 64 ( 2 foot ) paces from the cam. and perfection

As the sun is rising, here is a shot on the building I am sure the pic needs more or less adjustment for a better still

Today went out, and was at the high point overlooking the Hudson river. I had to tie the cam with the mini tripod securely to a post, did a 15 min clip, hopng I have a steadi shot.

At a given time when filming, wit hte GVS,I noticed , not having a issue wit hthe low battery icon this time, it will occure on the cams. I had the Card protect, wonder why we , or I am getting tossed icons up. I again am stuck by removing the sd card and reinserting, this allowed me to film.

otherwise I am stuck either formatting the sd or rebooting the cam. not good

the other day I had the sanyo with me and I think I am leaning to the GVS due to the cmos over a ccd. I may now like a simple point-n-shoot. when I at tines go on a vacation I do not need to sit there and think, which setting I should be in.

I had a mourning shot I know the GVS would fail, so it may be best i had a pro model at given times Lol



one day I feel this way, the next that way. glad I can blog my thoughts and hope it helps others

Well, I had purchased both the DXG-596V and the GVS, and the DXG went back. The video was not nearly as clear on the DXG in any of my tests. The GVS had far more detail-- you could see texture on the paint on walls, etc. In addition, the DXG's video brightness changed a lot when zooming-- the lens is not very good and didn't keep a stable exposure at all. Also, although the Aiptek sometimes does not ignore dead pixels, the DXG had constant dead pixels which never went away. The DXG also had a lot of trouble maintaining a focus, which the GVS seems to be very good at-- autofocus is always very fast and accurate. Lastly, the DXG had loud interference in the background sound of my videos due to my 16GB memory card (it didn't like my card).

I found the bundle and featureset included with the Aiptek GVS to be nicer than the DXG-596V and would recommend it over the DXG any day. It's obviously not a perfect pro camera, but I feel that it is a far better choice than the DXG in all aspects.

hi, fishy huge thanks for your hard work to review all the camcorders out of the world :-) today my new ahd z700 or gvs is arrived. i test it a little bit and the quality of videos are good, but when i stick the usb cable in it my pc restarts. i've tested all usb ports and another usb cable, but it was the same result. another issue, when i put the composite in hd out, i have no signal when i choose "my video" folder, the menu before works where i can choose "settings" "camera" "my video" "voice rec". anyone an idea? thx devcoax
