Aiptek Pocket DV2 digital camera


I like baby digital cameras. Little plastic toy-cams that cost about the same as a half-decent point-and-shoot film camera are, of course, not nearly as technically capable as certain far more expensive gadgets I could name, but they have many...

I Like It!


It takes decent pictures compared to a 1.3 MP still camera. The video is jerky because it is only 10 fps, but I still like it. It takes good pictures under fluorescent light in situations where a film camera would not get anything. The LCD screen is...

Good quality pictures, video with sound, can be used as a removable drive

Poor quality LCD screen, sometimes I forget to set the focus from Macro to Infinity

You get what you pay for


At $57 it is hard to complain about anything this device does or doesn't do.

Small, Light, CF Card Compatible, video capture, $57

Poor battery life, less then expected image/video quality, awkward left-handed operation

Consumer review by:

Nice little camera


This little digital is easy to use. Hooks up to the computer easily. Only draw back is that to get more than 9 pictures, you have to buy these little compact flash cards. They are rather expensive, starting at $40. This adds to the cost of the camera....

Small, will fit in a pocket. Good picture quality. Easy hook up to computer

No flash

Consumer review by:

An overpriced toy or incredible bargain? You decide.



Take-anywhere size. Ease of use. Coolness factor. SO many features for the price

Alkaline battery life. Dismal in low-light conditions. Beeping. No date stamp

Consumer review by:

Inexpensive digital camera


I received this digital camera for a gift.

Inexpensive, pocket size

No flash, POOR battery life
