I recently bought an Aiptek Action HD GVS camera and have some footage on it. I watched it on my non-hd tv and it looked great, but when I put it on my MBP, the quality drops greatly. Dark shots get grainy and outdoor shots look pixelated. Why would this be? Is there a better way to get files off of a SD card then plug in the camera? Or are there settings or programs that allow for better HD playback? I use Final Cut Pro for editing with my footage from a Panasonic GS300, but when I try to import the HD clips, I get an error. It says unknown file type? So I put them into iMovie HD, and they play smooth and fine, but still not near the quality it should be. I know that this camera takes really good quality video, I have seen it on a HDTV. I dont expect the quality of a $3000 cam, but its just no where near what Ive seen from it on a tv.
