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...

Fanntastic Camera


I like companies who stand by what they sell. With a 8 GB card I can take video of excellent quality, and I found when I need help it's there within a few minutes with Aiptek's phone support. Many thanks to Aiptek for what other companies fail to do!...

I am a disabled VietNam Vet with nerve damage in my hands. I had another mini dv camera I just bought but was difficult to use because of my hands. The instructions were poor to top it off and I gave that to my sister. This Aiptek is excellent in every...

Compact & Inexpensive


It is rated for a 32MB SD Card. I bought an 8MB SD-HC card and the capacity is 8hrs 55mins(!!!) for normal 480 video and 4 hrs 25mins for HD 720 video. I think a tripod for stability since it is so light is real requirement - I did get one.

Inexpensive! And quite compact. I bought it to make video for YouTube (how-to's), take videos of my little girl, and help me review my figure skating.

You need good bright light to ensure noise levels are kept low - which is not really unexpected. Normal lighting indoors is acceptable but not great, but perfectly OK for something like YouTube. It has an odd habit of not being able to shut off the...

Great Investment


When I purchased this camera I also bought an 8gb SDHC card because I wanted to maximize my purchase by not limiting myself to just 1-2 hrs of video. Upon receipt of the camera, the information inside said that it actually supports up to a 32gb SDHC...

Compact, performs everything I need it for. Camera takes pictures at up to 8 megapixels. Video is amazing from this camera.

The camera side of this is a little iffy. If you have shaky hands (like myself) it's hard to get a good picture but when you do, it's REALLY good. The zoom is a bit slower than most cameras that I'm used to.

It's okay, maybe good compared to others.


I don't really recommend it because I have found much better products, but you can choose for yourself if it suits your style or not. Good price though.

Easy to Use, Compact, Great Design

Bad in Low Light, Weak Zoom

Wow. This camera/camcorder/MP3 player/Voicerecorder sounds like a fantastic deal right? I got mine on sale for $89.99 and I was so excited. I couldnt wait to take pictures of my son on Christmas morning and record him opening his new gigantic dinosaur...
