added note I hear others complaining about well the focal is off, and I may be not centered. and others say to center the lens. it is not about centering a lens if a cheap glas and film is on. it is about a 10 cent product costing a consumer 15.00 even at 40 plus from kodak.

I expect perfection wit ha Professional cam, and take it as it is with these toss aways.

I did not buy my wide angle lens from Deal Extreme, got it on my trip to HK a couple of years ago, never the less it is probably the same lens sold at DX, they are intended for cellular cam. I think I paid somewhere around $15 more or less in a retail store.

Got new windshield mount for the camera this yesterday so I tried it this morning when we went to Richmond (Canada's China Town). The video is very steady even without EIS turned on.

Here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82-du1_uE2c

I tried to switch to 1080p and the EIS MUST be turn off otherwise the video jelloed too much, probably due to slow processor.

Looks like I will just get universal remote from Dollarrama (for $2) and program it for vizio to try out...

Wish I found this site before ordering battery from Dealextreme. Looks like their prices is even better and battery lasted 2 hours!

Default Play Sport

Just picked up a playsport yesterday at Real Canadian Superstore. The sign said 40% off. without know the retail price, I asked the clerk to check the price, he scan the bar code and the register show $39.95!!! add HST and I ended up paying just over $45 out the door. Info screen show version 1.03 and what seem like a computer picture with 704 besides it. The manual is quite bare, not much info in it to explain the various things in detail. Taking video in dark places shows up quite a grainy screen, specially in total darkness. wonder if I should update the firmware?

Kodak Playsport will work wonders if you put it to the right low levels. Howdark is dark to you?
