ok

i tried a couple more editors and found it just wasnt worth the effort. BUT i did correct a sound issue (so far anyway). i drilled a tiny hole, being careful not to go in too far, in to the mic cover. presto chango! better sound from the little jazz. guess i will just pan slower now! thanks to all you for your assistance

This is true of the Aipteks as well. Enlarging the hole in the case above the microphone(s) drastically reduces the background noises of the camera lens zooming and focusing.

Improving the Aiptek camcorder!

What if anything does anyone know of this particular 720p non interpolated
$53 spy camera w/ 12 megapixel still camera? Anyone use this model or any particular similar model.

I would think that true 720p in a spy pen camera for $53 would be a really good deal.

But I would stay far, far away from the very cheap Jazz and Vivitar "HD" camcorders that are selling for around $40 to $80 these days. These are NOT true HD -- all they do is take a VGA-quality image sensor and upscale it to 1280x720 resolution. So technically the video comes out meeting the specs of "HD 720P", but the actual image is very grainy and pixellated.
