I agree Anker should have taken a little more time before putting this product out in retail stores. Even if it is kickstarter orders only, still people did not pay for something with these many issues.
It is understandable that this is an expensive product and Anker cannot just give it out for free unlike other products in exchnage of honest reviews/feedback/etc. A lot of review websites take the product back. Maybe Anker should have selected a larger pool of beta testers, send them the camera for a month and then get them returned (in exchange for something for their effort and time).
After reading so many issues it feels like a rushed product to get first movers advantage (ravpower came with vava cam with same features recently)
