What can break on the GVS, without given notice?

what will break due to being a budget cam.

1 Tripod metal housing:

no glue, or proper way of holding the screw mount in, in due time this will spin and fall out. expousing the inner circuitry, and as well weaken the sd card slot section

2. Drop:

Camera drop while on a tripod mount chances are all will be fine, not at all. SD card slot, body around its holding area breaks, near tripod. still able to slide peice back in without seperating body.

3. loosening parts:

Mouse by using hte mouse nav, over and over again, the mouse is worn out and feels like it is about to give out.

Screen may feel or felt loose at the start and in time will loosen not to somes liking.

These are some of the dissapointing finds I have came accross

The Fix:

taking ittoally apart to tighten the screen, some glue or filler forthe sd slot, and glue for the tripod mount.

It is recommended to use the mini tripod, over a professional one but at given times you'll just wind up with the cam blowing over in a matter of first day owning.

thank you for reading my observation

So fellas, I found this thread.

Have been looking at this camera to order and take on vacation to the Caribbean. Do you think it will suit my needs? As I am looking for something with a quick boot up and the HD picture sounds good.


Fishy, Thank for the hockey uploads

Definietly not interested in it for the camera, as I have a Nikon D50 with an assortment of lenses. (i.e. really into auto photography and just messing around)

On vacation I will be capturing most of it with the d50 however the aiptek will be nice to make some vids as well.

Dl a file test it out hd1080P, most my work is based on hd720p.

AsI observe more , and mor the GVS model, I am more and more thinking that the gvs is not 5x optical zoom, but more a 7x optical or higher zoomed camera

WIth a premature setting stuck in 2x at the turn on. and always have to step back to get more of the scenery in then zooming in. You noticed my hockey games and others. asI sit back in thebleecher I feel i need to sit furtherout the rink............

no the AIptek cam lenses are non removable they are3m glued placing a wide angle lens distorts the edging, but notthe video. Aiptek has fooled with the proper af setting. or angle
