Aiptek Action HD GVS


The Aiptek Action HD GVS offers a wide range of features for a compact camcorder small enough to fit in your pocket, purse or briefcase. We can recommend this product for people of all skill levels for its optical zoom and 1080p HD recording ability....

This mini camcorder's 3-inch LCD screen, 1080p HD video capability and image stabilizing technology are its best features

Image stabilization technology only works in 720p HD quality or lower, low-light recording is cumbersome and an SD card is not included with purchase

The Aiptek Action HD GVS has good basic features for amateur videographers on-the-go but its drawbacks bring it down relative to the competition.

Loving this camera


This camera really is very impressive and has met my needs well. I wanted something just to film shows and friends and it does that exceedingly well. If you do your research, you'll find this is a great camera for the money.

High quality/frame rate ; Nice look ; Intuitive operation

Always seems to be a little zoomed in ; Night mode tends to make the picture grainy

The aiptek action HD is a mediocre camcorder ”


I bought the camera two years ago and have been using it since. Although the camera runs in 'smooth' HD, it is nothing special. There are still tons of pixels on the screen that you can see. For the price it's not bad though. There is also a external...

So-so Camcorder


I like this camcorder for it's price and it's pictures are better than my Polaroid Digital camera, but you can get better. It's not very good for moving videos, such as when your walking around or in a car. I love doing pictures and videos in it's...

Over all Better than expected.


After some heavy web surfing, viewing of samples via YouTube clips on the web I finely took the plunge and ordered this little bugger. Now that I've had it for a while to try out I can give it a good recommendation, if you're looking for an inexpensive...

For the monetary value you simply can't go wrong with Aiptek Action HD GVS. Some people complain that with indoor conditions this camera is inadequate. But honestly, name a video camera that performs better indoors without additional lighting. Like any...

HD Camcorder for Under $200? No Way!


Yes way! IntroductionEvery now and then you run across a product that you think just couldn't possibly be as advertised. When I read about the Aiptek HD camcorders I thought how in the world could this be a serious ...

Small and inexpensive

So lightweight can be hard to take steady videos without a tripod
