A big surprise in a small package

 

I actually bought one of these that someone else returned. The sales people at one of the box stores told me to transfer video to my computer I was going to have to buy $40 cables if I wanted the cameras that cost hundreds of dollars. This little thing...

Small, easy to use, good quality images, recharges on usb

quick time means playback is limited

I Like It!

 

When considering this camera I feel you need to consider the value of the camera. For about $200 you get a very easy to carry camera that takes good video and photos. It can easily be placed in your pocket. It takes some time to get used to the...

Good Video and Photos

Takes Time to Learn; Hard to Keep Steady

Just ok...approaches but does not achieve mediocrity.

 

This product is little more than a toy...bought it and returned it after one day of use.

Small, convenient, marginally decent vid quality

Horrible (unacceptable) sound quality

Consumer review by:

Poor! Solid State recording and still a noisy buzz?

 

This camera is terrible. It is so bad that I think the one I received may be defective. I hope that's the case for Aiptek's sake. I ordered mine from JCPenny. First negative indicator was that the clam shell packaging had already been opened and taped...

Small and very portable. High Def

Atrocious sound quality. Night Shot mode for photos has no effect — I see no difference from regular mode. Video must be shot in bright sunlight to look decent

Great Idea Poor Execution

 

I tried to get away with an inexpensive hd cam. it didnt work out so well. the cam. freezes and wont playback video

Small size ,Sd card option

Broke in 20 days !! terrible sound

Consumer review by:

I love my GO-HD

 

I would like to share to others who bought this camcorder and are having problems with video editing from .mov files to other files like .avi, .wmv, etc. Not to worry, I finally found the answer to that after countless days of frustration, all you have...

Compact, portable, easy to use, uses rechargable NP-60 lithium ion battery

It would be nice to have a 10X zoom and image stabilizer

Consumer review by:

Cheap - video not bad - audio no good

 

cheap hd video with OK video quality

Audio is terrible

Great Video, but now what?

 

The movie files created by the camera can be played on a PC with the right codecs installed. But if you want to burn the files to removable media and retain the high definition (h.264) video there aren't many options. Ulead (Corel)VideoStudio 11.5 Plus...

High definition video is awesome. Fully charged battery lasts almost one hour (spec says 30 minutes.) Macro mode is great for exploring nature. LCD viewfinder is sufficient. Many settings can be manually adjusted or left on automatic. 3X optical zoom...

I was disappointed that the Quicktime movie (MOV) files that are created by the camera on the SD card were not compatible with my PS3 media center. After converting the files to MP4 the video looks great but the audio bit rate (32 kbps) is too low to...
