I do want to thank maxprime, at the start for pointing out that we have a difference in depth of resolution. Guess we overlooked the obvious...

Depth of field, the width and angle of the lens when choosing a vid resolution varies.

you have a wider, narrower, field on each setting. When choosing macro, the camera lens adjusts for close up, and when taken off We never even noticed the extra distance ?

If one does not use macro, the depth will be closer in infinity.

If one wants the greater distance , a wider distance you must turn on/off macro, but cannot set back the depth when camera is in the "ON" postion, the cam must be reset, by turning off.

Can it be said, this is a defect? a glitch. or common mistake apon Aiptek, or something they never pointed out?

I think , in my own opinion that the AF (auto focus) adjustment can be set to a correct depth, and has a greater range of the actual field given.

a video speaks for itself.

Demo on what I mean.

Funny.

Does not matter what cam, or what Firmware.

1. turn on cam

2. mouse up to macro

3. mouse up to infinity

record your shot. just do on hit zoom.

when finished you can hit zoom to OUT wide. andall will go back to normal. repeat forwider depth shot. no need to turn cam on/off.

in the video I show you exactly what I do. and that iswhat i found out..

Ok, I just did a video of how mine works and it is different. I shot it on a semi black screen to better highlight the screen icons. But, i tried to keep the bottom grey in the shot to show that there is no zoom movement on mine.

I wonder why my camera continues to act differently than others?

black background is not good.

you're saying yours either does readjust back to norm, or does not adjust at all

gvs works totally different then the action HD . my newvid does show the exact proceedure. not perfect but there you go. you see it working.

I wonder if this isadefect on some or yours. or a glitch etc...

The black back ground is to see the icons on the lcd better.

In your video demo's when you enable the macro functionit looks like your whole bar greys out and the camera widens the zoom angle. When I do the very same thing. Mine only greys the top of the icon bar from the digital zoom line and up. But, mine does not widen the zoom angle. It stays in the same postion and doesn't move.



I'm trying to figure is mine working correctly or not.

1 does the adjustment go when macro is chosen?

2. does it readjust when macro is turned off?

Max...... I now understand that to the two questions I was after DUH!

FW2003: Does no have that feature

FW2100, 2201, and 2302 DOES

I do appologise for not seeing this as I had to reflash.

So when NOW choosing the macro mode the lens falls back deeper into the camera, allowing now for us to bypas macro all together and get a greater field of depth. and if you do not want thefield ofdepth all one has to do is just Zoom out.

AIptek Does not know this, or have a comment for this. these are great finds.
