Today more and more camcorders that use the. Ambrella chip, will not have. The added features
Of mp3 webcam voice recorder etc etc . Companies engineers may want mass vs quality. I preferre quality. But with. Leaving the added features you tend to lose interest in that device.

I rather give up the webcam and purchase seperately.

Why the cam never has 1920x1080. More likely [email protected] fps that. Is an example.

Other webcams will most likely have hd720p today.

I used my cam and two things occurred. Hesitation or smoothness. Both sides were fast. So if
I wait a few more years maybe the webcam will work for me.

Only hyrid that has. All may. Be a standard def model.

Ispan ddv920

Dxg series aiptek had.

The companies can add the feature but I feel they arelimiting it.

Just my opinion

What is your budget? I have a Sanyo VPC-FH1 (on sale at Amazon for $329) which takes awesome video, more than decent stills and also works as a webcam. For cheaper the only one I know is 1st generation 1080P camcorders from Aiptek like the A-HD. The 2nd version, the GVS did not have this function, not sure about the H12 which is the newest.
