Aiptek DV5900 Camcorder

 

I bought this camera in 2005 as my first small digital camcorder. It was $90 at the time (now it's only $29.99). I just needed something to record video that I could fit in my pocket. This one certainly did fit in my pocket; in fact it's smaller than...

Overall this is a perfect basic camcorder. Again, you can get it refurbished straight from Aiptek with a guarantee for just $30. For that price you simply can’t beat it. It’s great for a young kid who wants to get into video recording and doesn’t need...

Aiptek DV5900 Digital Camcorder

 

The camera is quite good for a beginner who wants to experiment with a digital camera. I am quite satisfied with that. I am attaching a photo taken through that also for your satisfaction..

A good camera for taking outdoor shots. Satisfactory video shooting. A lot of loaded features like mp3 player, TV playback, PC connectivity and a good editting suite (software)

Close ups not so good, poor performance in dull light
