What does that mean? I had the same issue with the video doubling speed and audio fine.. I hope the ZX5 I just got and update to 1.06 doesnt have this same issue....

One thingI notice on the ZX5 is that STILL the audio is distorted and the limiter works too hard.. For instance, I was in the car today.. I turned on the camera, shot some video out the front window and had my stereo on.. every time there was a LOT OF BASS the audio distorted and the sound level dropped since I was near the speakers... is there any way around this.. a friend of mine took video on the iPhone and the audio was much better..

motinon, vibrating the lens and causing to shake, and rattle, this does not have af, yes so i expect it to happen.

The sound cam only be recorded as best as the circuitry of the cam, by that maker.

Default Review of the Zx5

I have found a review written by a kayak paddler. He doesn't sound to thrilled by the Zx5.
The review can be found here
