http://www.hanshing.com/products/Dig...al-DV-406.html

This is sold in the UK by Comet as the IT works (own brand).

ITs also a DXG :

Does anyone have any experience of it ? and would a AIPTEK DV6800 / MVVR be a better buy ?

TIA

welcome NXG.. just taking a quick look at the camera, and gonna re-look at it again.

the second site I cannot view upclose Lol

As a previous owner of hanshing imay not have a good comment. sorry

I do believe we are all not perfect but how do we spell mega pixals magapixals?

what really catches my eye is the Sony ccd lens. and it is a Pmp camera hoping it means it is like the aiptek and digilife, has excellent features , but only a 512 sd external capacity, while others are going up to 2 gig.

the battery life hmm hope it is the same as ours. it really is a new camera and not out in the North america region. so we'll have t owait.

the body is awesome hope it is diecast metal looks kewl, thats all I can say for now.

I've been to comet and had a look at one close up. Its plastic but not that really cheap plastic feel as per some of the digital cameras they had in store. Its quite small, feels solid. The people in the shop knew nothing about it and I couldn't see a working one

The fact thats its CCD make it stand out. Though they describe it as "4 Mage pixels CCD Sensor" Mage ? hehe oh well.

Didn't spot the 512sd limit, thats not so good.

I've seen a Aiptek DV6800 as well which looked nice, very shiny ;-) Also comparing to Samsung digital camera V700 which can do 640*480 30fps and Sony DSC-L1. Price wise they are only £20 more ! They would be CCD for sure, well made etc...

Not sure if to go for a digital camera like the Sony with the bonus of videos at 640*480 30 fps or get the DV-406 or DV6800.... confused :| Do you think the sony / samsung would be better quality video ?

I would go for the sony camera , over any hybrid. I seen a sony vid frm the old 1.4 floppy drive WOW1and that was thebest camera on the market back then. if you stick with the hybrids I love my aiptek 6800 (mpvr2k6) just not an indoor low lux camera read my review, decide? hanshing had glitchs aiptek has totally worked out their flash and flaws on the ir model which had none.

I will post a vid up of my friends kid in his session of tai kon do (spell check)

qvga I was in by mistake low res and then fixed it to late for high res a few sample shots soon

1 1/2 hour showw and on/off i had the camera going

I am behind a galss and there is a door to my left and I cannot believe how the camera picked up the sound as it was not that loud in the room they were at l60 feet away the master and his voice was demanding.

the first pix or vid is at low resolution


the sec is at high resolution


you'll see grain at low and clear at high

upload later

Aiptek 6800 video is uploaded and should work this time , the grain around the masters head is unnacceptable but the person can be made out he is at least a distant away, as you should focus on what is in view, not the outer parameters.

A sunny warm fall day. floor is blue and a lot of indoor lighting reflections as you see a clear image in the glass as well as the kids. the high res shot will be perfect filming point, you get the whole scenerio in there, and the feeling of a economy camera. I call that PRICELESS!

another day and I uploaded again th correct video, somehow my repair vid got mixed up in there Lol do not ask how?

Low resolution shot http://media.putfile.com/CLIP002570

high resolution shot http://www.youtube.com/?v=ItlaI4sP5ms

* youtube Loss of resolution big time

Here is the high resolution from Putfile I needed to log in for a higher upload file I forgot about its 25 mb

high res at putfile http://media.putfile.com/CLIP00303261

so much better

remember these are mpvr not hanshing

again Like I said ' thee is a glass in front of me and I am nose up to it.while a door is at arms length about 3 feet away the noise must travel through and around, while others behind me do not know how to turn their cell phones off I picked up , in some videos the ringing and it was not as loud as I expected the mic might have a foward directionl point lol.

Nice clips, the high res video was impressive. I'm going to read up some more ! If the DV6800 was a bit cheaper here I'd get one I think :-)
