Hi guys, I am a newbie into the Hybird world. I bought the Aiptek GVS and recorded my backyard early in the monring. I also had bought Kodak Zi6 last week and recorded the same in the morning. I uploaded the zi6 video to vimeo (http://www.vimeo.com/2588813) and the aiptek to youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9ImpDdowhY)

The settings are identical - Can anyone help me figure the reason for KOdak being crisp and clear while the Aiptek is really not comparable? Is it this camera that I have or the settings that can improve. Zi6 works even in the low light. Aiptek GVS is worse when it comes to low light (compartiviely). What is it that I am missing?

I am so disappointed and want to return.

Pity the link is broken. I think the Kodak uses the same/similar sensor as the Aiptek HSHD, but that has color issues too, but latitude and low light seems better. The sensor is likely to have much bigger lower res sensor pads, collecting more light then the GVS, making it better.

That's a DEFECTIVE Aiptek Action HD GVS.

RETURN IT.

There's a problem with the lens of the Aiptek Action HD GVS. You'll need to swap it for a camera without this DEFECT.

Yeah, I was thinking of buying a Kodak zi6 as well.

The GVS may have something inside the lens smudged on it, we hope not on the outside . Have you made sure that the focus is on auto and non macro? You might also try the color balance, auto might not always work.

It could be a more general lens defect, in any case if you can't see it on the outside return it.
