Fun For Kids

  • Summary: I purchased this camera for my 15 year old son. He's really enjoying it. Make sure you purchase a CF memory card for the extra storage. The good news is they work well and if the loses it were not out a bunch of money and if it breaks we purchased the warranty.

Best overall for the price

Boo Radley, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought mine in the summer of 2005. With a 2 GB CF card, I can take a 3 to 3 1/2 hour video. The still pictures come out as clearly as digital cameras costing 4 times the cost of this unit, and this camcorder is smaller than most digital cameras.

  • Summary: It's OK if you own a PC computer running Microsoft software. It should have been plainly stated in the description that the video file won't download and run on a MacIntosh.

5 February 2009
  • Summary: Here is a raw video clip of a dark dance room from my Aiptek DV-5100M: -- Video and Audio tracks are exactly synchronized (i.e., audio talking matches video of talking). -- Audio microphone is very quiet, and does not have any hum or hiss noise (like some other small camcorders).

A toy

K. Randolph, Amazon
28 January 2009
  • Summary: I got this for my 13 yo daughter, who really wanted a video camera to play around with. The Aiptek seemed to be perfect; simple to use and not too expensive.

Aiptek DV5100M 5 MP Pocket Digital Camcorder

Brisentine C. K. Hellwig, Amazon
17 February 2007
  • Summary: Bought this for my son to replace his broken JVC camcorder. It was one fifth the price of the old one he had and he loves the features, compactness and ease of use much better than his old one.

I returned it

F. Nelson Barquardt "Mad Dog", Amazon
7 February 2007
  • Summary: I ordered this camcorder and gave it a test drive for a couple of days. I sent it back to Amazon because the sound was awful. It picked up a narration from the camera operator, but anything from a dog's bark to a conversation five feet away...forget it.
