Since the camera doesn't power on with battery only and it's already out of warranty, you could try cracking it open to check any soldered connections. If you're lucky it might just be a poorly...

I am assuming from your message that the camera is no longer in warranty right? If that is the case then sadly you're out of luck as Aiptek doesn't do repairs. Basically all they do is swap them out...

Not sure what you mean here but Polaroid as a company doesn't exist anymore. It only exists as a brand name they slap onto electronics now, some of which happen to be cameras. This is what many think...

The thing is the internal mic doesn't seem to record in what I would perceive as stereo. It would also be odd if the external mic was mono while the internal was stereo. Either way this seems a bit...

Aiptek GVS Stereo Separation

A friend just bought a Sony ECM-CS10 to play with as an external mic on his GoPro Hero 2 camcorder so I asked to borrow it to see if it would work in my Aiptek GVS as well. I found that it does, but...

I am surprised they are not already listed for sale on amazon by now. I can't even find them on their own website. This suggests that it's just a quick re-branding to associate the old Xacti range...

Well to be fair, the Jazzcam was just a cheap $99 camcorder from Walmart :) There wasn't anything comparable at the time for that price, but I don't think anyone ever denied it was bit starved...

I don't like the fact that it says the battery is built in.

I think we can safely say the Flip served it's purpose and that finally there are now better alternatives.

Having said that, the Flip's lack of features was it's asset. We tend to forget on this...

Just copying Samsung that's all. I guess if you didn't already have a device like this, it's just another extra feature that may tip the balance to this one.

Even though I saw this post yesterday it was already out of stock. I have the previous version 16 so it wasn't a must have for me, but would've still made a nice upgrade.
