Medebe: That was a very thorough and well explained piece. As someone who just received the GP3 for Christmas I've read the transcript twice after watching the video and have saved it so I can test at the different settings you provided. I think I ran into the problem you described charging the battery when I attempted to charge it via the USB port on my desktop PC. I used a separate, stand alone charger and it appears to be charging, we'll see. I also noticed what appears to be a scratch in the lens, or perhaps a discoloration of the lens coating (?) straight out of the box, so I may be returning this one to Best Buy today. One question, I noticed you had a lens cover that snaps on in your video. Did that come with your GP3 or did you purchase it as an accessory? It didn't come with mine. Thanks for your excellent post.

Rdown65, mpgxsvcd, I had my daughter (17 years old and my tech wiz) look at it and she figured out it was just something on the lens that could be wiped off (I was scared to wipe it with anything lest I scratch it further). It didn't appear to affect the video results but I'm glad it wasn't scratched. I'll look into the Frame Kit which I have seen advertised and appears worth the money. Thanks for your replies/responses.
