14 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Average

This camcorder has an average expert rating of 66 out of 100 based on eleven expert reviews from sites including Trusted Reviews, v3.co.uk, computeractive.co.uk and t3.dk.

Poor Design

One Aiptek 3D i2 owner reckoned that it was not good looking. Photographybay.com said in their Aiptek 3D i2 review “While the idea of the pocket 3D camcorder is great, Aiptek’s execution is pretty poor”.

Not Good in Terms of Size

One person who bought the product considered that it was not heavy and bulky. Expert website Alphr.com wrote “The Aiptek i2 is a handheld HD camcorder - like a chunkier Flip Mino HD - with two lenses, enabling it to record true stereoscopic 3D”.

Very Slow Maximum Frame Rate

The Aiptek 3D i2 has a quite slow maximum frame rate (only 30 frames per second) compared to most of the other comparable spec video cameras that are a similar age to the 3D i2. Video cameras that are a comparable age to the 3D i2 have maximum frame rates of between 25fps and 60fps.

Chart Edit

Not Full HD

The Aiptek 3D i2 is not Full HD, unlike most of the other similar spec video cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 3D i2.

The average digital zoom of medium sensor size camcorders that were released around the same time as the 3D i2 is 170x, and the digital zooms range from 2x to 1,800x.

We compared this camcorder to all the other 4x (digital) camcorders and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic HM-TA20, the Olympus LS-20M, and the GE DV1 is also worth considering.

Video cameras with a bigger digital zoom that might also be worth looking at include the Aiptek ProjectorCam C25 (10x), the Toshiba Camileo P20 (16x), or the JVC GY-HMQ10 (20x) which also has a higher rating.
