Any idea why the color looks *much* more vibrant\vivid on the Action vs. GVS. Was it a difference at the time of day or are the GVS colors muted (because of 60f?) or a nasty byproduct of the video conversion?

I don't know. I think the GVS's colors look more natural. The reason I say this is the room behind the fountain. The lighting in the ceiling looks like florescent lighting in the GVS and with the Action HD it looks too yellowish. Also, when that person comes out in the red shorts. They look too red in the Action HD footage to me. With that said it would be my guess that it is only a WB setting between the two.

the Action HD has a white balance issues, and a Firmware fix is available for correction, just for the White Balance Only.

I am not testing out their Firmware as last time the sound was the issue, and video and other problems occurred with the load.

We need to compare not on the background, but the main object, the fountain.

Owning both cams, I am happier that the video does a lot less focus hunting.

The difference of time and day is only minutes apart different days

action: sunny before dinner night after dinner does not matter if a light is on or off, the fountain and store is the lighting.

GVS cloudy before dinner night after dinner does not matter ifa light is on or off the fountain and store is the lighting.

60 fps 30 fps modified by the servers to a flash player gets the video to you to view, there is no sports movement here or angles for 60fps
