Hi there,

I'm french and i just got my new AHD Z700 from AIPTEK

I found the quality of video of my camera isn't the same i ve seen on the video from your camera.

It might be a different firmware.

How can i know my firmware and how can i change it ?

And, WHAT IS THE BEST FIRMWARE ACTUALLY, and where can i download it ?

Thanks all.

Please post your question only once. Read through the forums before asking such a question. This answer has been given many times already. Check out fishy's videos, they explain it all. There is also a firmware thread with information.
Please use the forum searchfunction to find it.

Meanwhile, try this:
How to check FW version:
1) Turn on your camcorder
2) switch to MODE UI by pressing "mode" key
3) press the joystick-down for 3 seconds and hold it
4) press snapshot key

To look at what firmware you have, the steps do work, the joystick is very delicate, and will take not uh one time to do, but number of times.

In my videos My last one, a member asks how to, and I just plane ole went real slow, I am sure when I did that, I opened up a can of worms.

we call it babblefish

Pour regarder quels progiciels vous avez, les étapes fonctionnent, le manche est très sensible, et prendra pas uh de l'un temps de faire, mais nombre de fois. Dans des mes vidéos des mes dernières, un membre demandent comment à, et je surface juste vieux suis allé vrai lent, je suis sûr quand j'ai fait cela, j'ai ouvert un bidon de vers

FW 2703 is not out it is a test version , not to the public.

I hold my info about what I recieve privately,that cannot be posted publically, and now I am lied to Worldwide. LMAO: now it is out, and guess it is no longer a secret.

FW 2703 only works with the Z700, not the GVS, will cause issues to the GVS USA version the issuesare forcing a Highspeed card usage . class 4 and lower fails to record, will record 3-13 sec's , stops recording and does not save. errors shows up, saying LOWSPEED, then CLOCK 4:15:16 in that fation.

FW2804 and FW2903 are probably the next releases that are HUSH,HUSH

ALL I can say is I have a Aiptek action GVS, model V5Z5S. and my members are here they are my team. as for info. ---------ghost towned
