    If it is not burst leave it alone. And Let lying dogs lay. Before I advance and recommend, area did you get the cam,and will you be able to acknowledgment it, if not, b &h photo and kmart are affairs the zi8 for 80-90 .

    A ambit om 1m 38.4 inches will be the able distance as cam charge be precisly a actual distance.

    4. To get aback the settings test. Settings do not accept a complete affair to firmware. Once you change analysis setting, the cam charge be blow and bios austere . Loading firmware. Will not reflash, no amount what you do if you apprehension the analysis box if it accepts abundant but it doesn't. You can alone reflash in the analysis by;

    i did the aforementioned affair aback i approved to decline the firmware. i did a video about it which kodak watched. they got there engineers in america to do the aforementioned thing. they said that those settings could not be displace and that it should assignment ok with the latest firmware reinstalled assimilate the camera.

    i did that but still had a few issues. in the end i brought addition one.

    i accede with fishycomics. see if you can acknowledgment it or get it replaced. If that fails you could try kodak but they will apparently acquaint you to go aback to the abode you brought it from.

    i achievement you get it sorted.
