Ok, thank you!
Fishy, please give me advice about "upgrade" to Z600.
May you see my videos and make an expert conclusion?
Your opinion is very important for me

Note. I select most dark video. Lights is placed top and behind the daughter's face. Online it looks terrible, but source not so bad. With more lights and in the right angle picture is quite nice. There is long clip in my profile with better picture.

Paul Priceless moments:|

GO-HD model you have is OUTSTANDING. at scenes like the sidewalk wet sun WOW. night time WOW,and indoor station FINE. I am sure goingto the mistaken GVS USA version you'll not reproduce shots like that again or maybe.

The Z600 will only give you the same zoom, forget the digital zoom. uncertain if it will improve night scen , because the Action or AHD Z500 I believe the Action HD is a lesser senser, and the Z600 worse. my opinion.

If I had the chance I keep my options open I do not turn people away from a Aiptek, no do i give a bad take, I just do my best with what i got.

Ad dall my cams up, I be lugging a 3k heavy cam around LOL

newer major brand company is our dream, low budget is what we are stuck with.

in my eyes and my vid is out i tell you Low light of the GVS is Horriable POOR ev setting is not helpful. , I turn back to my Action, I turn back to my AH-Hd

I think if you get rid of this you may make a mistake with what I seen, but I must say Ask others before you decide time is the issue we know

Maybe I have translation troubles, sorry
I mean I will not sell or change this one now.
Just would try Action HD if I'll have a good opportunity to order it.

BTW, can someone help to ship me Action HD from Walmart?
They doesn't ships internationally, unfortunately.

I understood ya. ifyou are only goingto opt one level from the Go to the Action isay stick with what you got. nothing is different at all. you'll get a lower, POORER level lighting. just a tad faster Af and s till have the hunt. sound be lower and not improved.

I just got this the other night. I am very impressed. Low light levels are not that great, however it's not too far off from my expensive (at the time) Canon Elura DV cam. The low light is manageable with an extra light or two turned on, and night shot or EV settings (maybe I'm not picky and just happy that it somewhat works at night indoors).

The one observation I'd like to make is regarding the 1080p 1440x1080 mode. On some PCs, it comes out with 16:9 aspect. On my self built GB-PVR HTPC, the picture is square 4:3. The 720p modes are 16:9 and look spectacular. I'd like to know if any others have noticed that the 16:9 vs 4:3 view changes from computer to computer based on the codec used? The HTPC is using CoreAVC and it shows it 4:3, the desktop is running MPC home and it shows it at 16:9 and also with 5-6 lines of weird green moving lines on the bottom. I should also mention that the MPC codec is being used on an ATI 48xx series card with hardware acceleration turned on. I'm pretty good with codecs, merit values and all that jazz. When I switched the desktop to CoreAVC, I got the same thing - square picture. Really odd.

I'm not currently using quicktime, other than quicktime alternative which I believe just basically uses another H.264 decoder.

I also have a question for fishycomics - do you write your reviews on an Iphone or something? It looks like your letters jump around like you're on a weird keyboard or maybe a touchscreen. Just curious :-)
