Question about HP V5040u 1080p High Definition Digital Camcorder (Navy Blue)
We just received a brand new hp 1080p camcorder as a gift on the upcoming arrival of our baby, and we just discovered that it doesn`t seem to be working properly. Our video clips are *very* grainy and dark, with no details at all. The camcorder records worse videos than our point-and-shoot camera does!! Is there anything that we might be doing wrong?
Please help! We want to fix the problem ASAP as our baby is due any day now!!! Thank you.
I am afraid that you are seeing what I found out for myself when I bought my sister an 'HD video camera' around the same price point of the HP V5040U (when she was about to have her second boy.) I found the video and stills so disappointing I just returned it to the store. I found I could take MUCH better video for her with an older Lumix digital still camera.
You can make the most of your camera by recording in very bright situations, and by not using any zoom function. There are many reviews out there that will give you the idea you are not doing anything wrong.
I hope that helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.
This is the problem with every HP V5040u 1080p High Definition Digital Camcorder. It has a problem of taking grainy pictures and it's zoom is useless, as If you zoom in, the picture becomes increasingly more grainy.
I would suggest you to take it to HP service centre as it is in warranty period.
Hope you get it repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
Good Luck and have a nice day.
