Summary: I have owned 1 aiptek previous to this ISDV model, the other one served ok till a button decided to pop-in rendering it non-operational. This ISDV model is a great entry level camera, understand that it is actually a 3MP camera that converts video to 5MP, this could explain some of the brief lag time some users in other reviews experience when they take pictures.
Nice Gift for capturing young children's mood on Christmas Morning

Summary: My niece has a young child. He is growing up very fast and she does not have money for a video camera, but I found this camera and the price was something I could handle with a resolution I found acceptable for capturing the very short moments a child is a child. I set it up and charged the battery so that she could use it Christmas morning. A great gift!
Summary: i bought this camcorder for myself and my husband but decided to give it to my son for his 14th birthday, its a wonderful easy electronic device , simple, efficient, lightweight, pocket size and handy to carry around any day any time a perfect gift for a teenager who likes to take videos and photos as well as listen to MP3s all together.
Summary: I guess it's ok if you're not a proffesional(of course), but if you're just starting out, this is actually a pretty good camera. The biggest help for me was the auto-stabalizer; however, if you're taping from a long distance, it can kinda be a hastle. It has a whole bunch of features(I've had it for a year and a half and I haven't even tried them all out!
Summary: When I ordered my camera it was to be delivered on the 9th of October. It wasn't. I called and was told I had to wait until Oct.20 to reorder the camera. Had no choice but to wait. On Oct. 20. I reordered and was told it would be two (2) day delivery. I finally got it on Oct. 28. So much for 2 day delivery. Other than that I am happy with the camera. Also bought a memory card for it.
Summary: I bought this camera years ago when it first came out for around $120. Now that I have had it for several years I must say I have gotten my moneys worth and then some. I've taken this camera with me from construction sites to vacation destinations and I've been able to get consistently good pictures. Not GREAT but good. It's well worth spending a few minutes learning the menu options and settings because it will make a big difference in your picture quality.
