hi everybody!



does the "Aiptek MPVR w/3x Optical Zoom" you get from Amazon.com

really have an optical zoom?



(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...Fencoding=UTF8)





it looks like the MPVR with no optical zoom and it has the same EAN and UPC. also, even if there are several sites advertising for it, nobody mentions the optical zoom in the specs!





(http://www.videocameraproshop.com/in...x_Optical_Zoom



http://www.videoavid.com/buy-camera/...G4-Digital.htm



http://www.digital-camera-review.us/...mId=B000AV14J0)



any other hybrids with optical zoom on the market?...



thanks a lot,



g.

I would Only believe Aiptek Corp.

Amazon is a traders market like Ebay.............

Target would be a startto look after june.

the site shows the MPVr with it? and if you look at the other one, it is clearly marked on the camera.

paitience. It'll be available.

now you can opt for the sanyo fisher c series c4,5,6 c40.

you can opted for svc which is Aiptek as well the dv5300 model at 8 meg but a lil different may be on page 1 or 2 look for it. all oer 300.00 that I'll buy a 32 optical jvc camcorder.

I know what you're talking about. Amazon does list the MPVR in the title as having 3 x optical zoom. That is a false statement. Just like fishy said, Aiptek itself is the only way to really know what the camera specs are, lots of retail sites list things wrong at times. So, no, the MPVR does not have optical zoom, but it has four times digital zoom.

On Amazon you'll also notice the Aiptek Zoom DV to be released May 30. Now THIS camera "appears" to have optical zoom for real, even the model photo shows "3 X Op...." on the camera's side. But I wouldn't bet all my chips on it until May 30th when it is released and we can see for ourselves. It looks promising, though, and if you like the features of the MPVR and want the added bonus of optical zoom, you may want to wait for the Zoom DV's release.

Good Luck.

:blah:I can't wait until the REAL Zoom DV arrives. If I hear good things I might have to trade my MPVR in. But I'm a little skeptical bout how well their optical zoom would work; guess we'll have to see.
