I guess they must've fixed the filename as when I downloaded it, it was the correct name.

One of the fixes listed: Re-Adjust the built in microphone sensitivity

I cannot tell any difference. In fact I was hoping they'd reduced it a tad as I still think the gain is too high.

Dropped the Aiptek again. this time 4 feet on the tripod, what occures forthosewho are curious. AF will go BLUR. shut down cam, allow to turn on camera resets. again my other cam will need glueing due to poor craftmanship on design. the tripod hole has been loosened again
Aiptek a better tripod design budd

here is the movie Vimeo fault if gone after a weeks time, youtube, make sureyou're in HD.
http://www.vimeo.com/5564043

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrSl1uzPeHc



What I noticed after the saving:

video field of depth once again tapered in a degree. The field ofdepth must be let out, rather taken in, unless my eyes decieve me?

Sound indoor it is more noticed, outdoor you'll not. Zoom, and I can be very picky gear noise from 1-100 100 be loudest 3. like isaid I can be picky, it is heard outdoors.

Sound is noticable, the change same loud voice , set two cams up, andyou hear me talk, one is loud the otheris lowered. how much in numbers you ask, Allow Aiptek to answer?

Video, is shown in thebeginning one has a touch of hmm , cannot put my finger on it. but the outdoor is by far better, and at times it is how the lighthit the object, and filming.

macro, zoom and adjustments work fine at given times the cam will hunt, will u focus, and blurr, this may be normal, aswe have a AF lock, do not forget the Gyroscopic stab is ON and causes the issues as well. the cam is tryingto balance left/right/up/down, as well as in/out. so wondering further testing will be needed.

I am not torn between a rock. But I am requesting a field of depth to be added back in. if that can be done lets hope I can hear the answer, rather checking the page online at the firmware, with other corrected issues.

Guess we can repeat over, and over EV setting Icon M.I.A day one, and never be heard of again till a new model arises. Aug 2009 should be expecting a new one, but I am sure OCt 2009will be the date, but Nov 2009 on sale at online. its been almost 3/4 of a year. and yet a battery option. enjoy the clip.
