The smoothness of playback on Vimeo can vary by your system, the number of people on Vimeo, how your internet connection is doing, etc. This morning a few of mine wouldn't even load, a couple were choppy, etc. They could be doing maintenance. A lot of variables. If the videos play well on your system I wouldn't sweat it.

On the other hand, if they play well on your system and are always choppy on Vimeo I'd research the suggested settings for Vimeo uploads as maybe you're doing something wrong.

Hi everyone....

Quick question...

I managed to find a CA65 and had a play.
Is there much difference between the CA65 and he HD700.
I am aware of course the CA65 obviously isnt High Definition.

What about size difference? Which is bigger and which is smaller or are they about the same ?
In anyone's opinion, if I do not have a high definition TV or DVD player, would it be worth settling for the CA65 as oppossed to the HD700 ?
Or are there any other advantages with the HD700 ?

Thanks guys...

I like my video sharp and saturated so I mostly use VIVID. But here's one in NORMAL mode. I just wish that NORMAL would be a bit sharper.

It's straight from the camera. Just copied the .mp4 from the SD card and uploaded straight to Vimeo. Vimeo is quite taxing on my computer too when I have several programs running. But it should be smooth if you download the source file from vimeo and play it locally.

... Yep, and amazing: If you download a raw file you get the original .mp4. Copy that to the card, put it back into the cam and you can exactly play back the original shooting on your cam/hd-tv pp.

I don't have a HD TV yet either, but will eventually so I shoot in HD now. If you already feel that the CA65 is settling, then why do it? I think you'd be happy with either, I know I would.

Guys:
Amazon has a refurbished HD700 brown (who cares for the color anyway?) for $238.46 shipped.

My item was ordered yesterday and it has been shipped already.
30 day inspection and you can return the item if not satisfied.

I will use that cam as a helmet cam for flyfishing.
I will let you know.

I will waterproof it. (easy since there is a remote control).

Cheers to all.

So do you hold this or does it fit around the hd700 ?, as I have a cg65 which this would be perfect for family get togethers where light is low.

I was just hand holding it in the videos. I'm sure you can rig something up if you want to mount it; Velcro, 1/4x20 screw epoxied to the top of the UFO light so it and me screwed into the tripod socket...lots of ways to do it.
