Software won't load; camera won't recognise SDcard
6 November 2013
Summary: This might be an anomaly on my own particular equipment, but the packaged software won't load on my system, and I searched for updates and upgrades on the net to no avail. I've since contacted the seller, and though they say they'll get back to me with answers, almost a week later, I'm still waiting. By the way, the camera has no flash or 'torch' light for video recording.
Summary: I will be up-front I did get this, but then returned it, nothing wrong with it, just wasn't for me. The menu's are not very intuitive, could have been done better. Nowhere before I purchases it did it say it must have an SD card to record to. Otherwise you get 15 seconds of recording.
Summary: The Aiptek 3d i2 is a half decent cam for the money. 3D Photograph quality is very good. Video playback looks ok on a small computer screen. I would not bother updating the firmware as -in my opinion- it does not improve the video quality. The picture quality tho is impressive- when taken in good lighting conditions & this alone makes this cam worth buying. You do not need a 3d tv (i don't) to view pics & vid as the pc software converts everything to 3d.
Summary: Fun but don't expect too much, good as an experiment into the 3d world, not sure how to view 3d pictures on a 3d tv via say an external hard drive as due to a black frame either side of the picture the abs merges the 2 incorrectly but fine when plugged directly into the tv however for me this is inconvenient as the device has no remote so u have to keep getting up to change to the next picture.
Summary: The item is OK at £49.99 to have a play with but the quality of the item and the output is not great in my opinion. My screen also has a bit of dust underneath it which I expect is a regular occurence.
Summary: I got this while it was on offer £49.99 and thought what the hell, mixed reviews between Amazon customers and Maplin customers, glad i took the chance, as soon as i recieved it i updated it with the latest firmware from here [...] which fixes the framrate issues. I took a quick video indoors and it was ok (average for an indoor video) and i tried it outdoors and even though it was cloudy it was great quality, easily 720p, played back on my lg 23" 3d monitor and it looked...
Summary: I've had my Aiptek 3D cam for a few days now and on the whole I'm happy with my purchase. Here are my findings: 1) The quality of the 2D video is adequate. 2) The quality of the 3D video isn't great. The 3D video produces two images side-by-side in 720P resolution (1280x720) - meaning that each image is half the resolution (640x720). As you only effectively see one image on screen (left image for your left eye, right for your right eye) the 3D output is 640x720.
Summary: In the last year or so there has been a bit of an explosion of 3D products in the consumer market. This particular gadget is aimed squarely at the low end of that market. It's roughly the size of a Blackberry, which makes it easy to carry around, but unfortunately the video quality is what you might expect from a camera phone. Aiptek is actually rather cheeky to call it "HD".
