First gen Flip vs. current image quality

Does anyone out there have image stills (full res preferred) of the current Flip vs. the first gen flip?

I'm looking for a couple things. Has the GG grain cleaned up a lot more and am I able to drop the f-stop on the front lenses more to deepen my DOF at all. I love shallow but the one drawback I have with my Flip is it at times has to be too shallow. If I try dropping my f-stop to 4 or 5.6, I'm definitely going to be seeing the GG showing up.

I've been using a first gen Flip, I really like it but it has it's issues with what I stated above.

i'd like to ask if it's possible, quyen, to replace the ground glass to a hd version? or to replac it at all if i have a first generation flip?

how much would that be?


thanks in advance

Fine with me... good point. Quyen, are we able to ship back and upgrade our GG if you have a cleaner one available?
