Aiptek A-HD camcorder, great alternative to the Flip ”


I saw a Flip camcorder display at Office Max and I decided I wanted to ask for one for Christmas from my best friend winter of 2007.  He said do research first, and then if that is the best camera for the money I will get one for you.  Well I went...

Suprisingly good for the price


I must admit I approached the purchase of this item expecting to be disapointed, and possibly looking to return it under the 7 day "cooling off" (which I had checked was OK before my purchase) I was pleasently suprised by the results.

Consumer review (

The concept is sound, but the end result is sub-standard.


The camera has some sort of auto white-balance running, which means as you move the camera around and point at different things, the brightness of the recording goes up and down - and not smoothly, in big jumps! It's very annoying.
