Summary: I took this on our trip of Route 66 and took obout 4 hours of video and 300 pictures on the 16GB card. Had no troubles. Very easy to work once it is set up. The only issue is the lense cover. The cable is not long enough to attach to the camcorder so the lense cover is easy to misplace. A little string solved the problem. Would suggest visiting Aiptek's home store for free details when available.
Summary: Before purchasing, I read all the reviews. Several talked about poor video playback with a herky jerky picture. My opinion was that they must have gotten a defective unit as anyone can get. My unit arrived very fast and I was very happy but after several test videos, it became apparent that the reviews were correct. I experienced the same herky jerky picture when played back on my PC but they played just fine on the unit itself and on YouTube.
Summary: So far this product is as expected. It's not great with little light, but for the cost, I didn't expect it to be. It's pretty easy to use, which is important because I purchased it for my 11-year-old son. We have not downloaded any video to the computer to edit with yet, so I may be updating this review after that is attempted. Getting a SDHC card is a must. The internal memory is not enough to hold more than a couple of minutes of HD video.
Summary: Given for a birthday present to a 13 year old. Has all the features of a more expensive camera. Really likes the ability to post to You Tube and the stabilization feature. Night vision was a plus.
Summary: I drove close to an hour to order this product from Wal Mart. Waited 2 weeks for it. Drove another hour to pick it up. The camcorder did not work. it just would not turn on. We tried everything. We called Aiptek, not a call collect, and they suggested we had a faulty battery and could send us a REFURBISHED one. No thank you. I am driving back to Wal Mart, another hour in the car, to return the Aiptek GVS HD.
Summary: Not sure at first because of the low price on a HD camera compared to the price's on other such camcorder's. I looked at the review's on this camera and a few folk's actually put mini video's from the camera and so I got it and it really exceeded my expectations for what I wanted from a camcorder
Summary: This camera may do a nice job capturing the images but it is not easy to share. I needed to download to my computer and convert to a dvd. Can not be done, easily. The software with the camera did not even play on my Vista system. My video software would not work with it. I didn't feel I should have to buy separate software just to make a dvd. My computer makes them otherwise just fine.
