808 #11 #16 #18 Camera. Which one is the best in your opinion?

I've created this thread to discuss the pros and cons of these cameras in a very short discussion as there are big thread talking about it.

I have not decided which one I should buy. What is the best buy in your opinion?

Thank you!

Prefrence is the key

If you run an Old pc/mac and New, there will be issues? that is where each individual will need to work out which cam works for them? As well for their Operating system with software there are requirements. that we overlook.

WHat works best for me is the Keycam 808 #16. Using .MOV format and the latest Firmware.

I like #16 the most due to its TXT configuration. However, in some lower light scenes the #16 perform quite poor. Showing pulsing noise all over the frame, and the video is crap. That's where my #11 gets back to action. I don't own #18, so I can't give opinion about it.

Great guys,

Thank you very much for the feedback.

I have both Windows 7(PC) and Snow Leopard OS(Macbook PRO). The camera will work on both OS right?

I will read more about the #16 and #18. I know there are some settings that works great on the #16 and it does not work on the #18. However, there are new features on the #18 that the #16 does not have. (AV Output?)

That will very soon NOT be true (along with several other additions to the #16 feature set).
