So hard to find anything good about the PenCam Trio 4GB
23 August 2010
Summary: Where to begin? On PAPER, this is a great product. It does HD video, has an OLED screen, does 5MP photos, comes with HDMI and an HDMI cable, and even acts as an MP3 player. But in reality, all of this is horribly flawed. The design is nice, though rather impractical. By making the camera look like a pen, they had to shrink the display down to a barely usable size. And even when you use the latest OLED screen, a tiny screen isn't going to be any use.
Summary: Since this is a pen sized camcorder, I wasn't expecting a great picture, and I was right, it's grainy. The audio is good, the size is a plus, it fits easily in a pocket or purse and weighs very little. I remember when bringing a camcorder along could wear you out in a couple of hours!
Summary: The Aipek is a video camera (720p), a still camera and an mp3 player. It comes with a lot of accessories: AV cables, HDMI cable, USB cable, wrist strap, armband, sunvisor to keep out the glare and serves as a stand at the same time, and headphones. I really liked that all these accessories came with the Aipek, especially the armband. The size is pretty small, and manageable. You can put this camera in your pockets or purse.
Summary: Given that I normally take pictures with my cell phone (of unexpected events when I don't have my regular camera at hand) and my to record videos of my kid when I have not a video camera around, this product, per its description, seemed to be just what I needed. I have been using it now for over a month, I wanted to really get to know it, test it and use it as much as possible before passing any judgment on it.
Summary: The PenCam takes pretty good pics but the video recording needs practice. When using it outside it was very difficult to see the screen - the brighter the sun the blacker the screen got! I got this camera because I thought it would suit me and my disability. I think I made a mistake as I've done better using my mobile phone. If you're looking for a camera that is compact and will be used mainly indoors then this is for you, otherwise look elsewhere.
Summary: Firstly the video quality is pretty good with a nice wide field of view good colours and well exposed images,it is also pretty well built with a very pleasing feel and came very well packaged,then why only 3 stars well its the 1 inch supposed oled screen, it is virtually useless tiny ok but dont take the image on the product blurb as any way accurate its rubbish with no defined image and outside NOTHING therefore guesswork is need to compose videos and while the...
Summary: the product takes a reasonable video,transferring data for computer use is easy.the difficult bit is getting it to play on a dvd player.been at it for 2 days now and still not achieved success. in relation to xsonly remarks about my ordering the wrong colour this is totally untrue they even admitted on the telephone that it was their fault and i have emails detailing that i ordered the correct colour product.
Summary: this is a great little item to have but the hd isnt as hd as i would like it, more like vga. but its small to take around with you so therefore its a great pocket cam, one touch and its recording plus its got its own built in light.
Summary: Die AIPTEK PenCam Trio HD ist ein sehr gutes Gerät. Sie dreht hochauflösende Videos und macht scharfe Bilder. Natürlich muss man das in Bezug zum Preis und zur Größe des Gerätes betrachten. Die Bedienung ist sehr einfach und intuitiv. Dateien lassen sich bequem am PC bearbeiten, übertragen und löschen. Auch die Löschfunktion direkt am Gerät funktioniert auf Anhieb, wenn man beachtet, die Löschtaste nur kanz kurz zu drücken.
