Summary: Wish I read more about the Product, Failed to state that SOFTWARE NOT Compatible with Windows 7 or 8, unable to edit my video. 3D, isn't 3D at all, claims you can watch it on the device with the glasses they provided, NOT! Pictures Okay for the price of $40.00 and video sub-standard even for the price. I love Viewsonic Products, this may have been cutting edge when made in 2009, but is now out-dated.
Summary: I ordered this and got it fast, upon opening the package the item seems large and looks like a toy but it does work, The software that comes with the camera is inside and starts when plugged into the computer but mine was corrupted so had to buy other software to view in full size, the depth of field was to be expected (not the great, yet fair), the image quality is not a crystal clear as other cams and possibly too bright as well. I'll keep it for now as a back up.
Summary: This is a cool toy. The 3D imagines are often just outstanding, but the camera does draw attention because it looks so unusual. The best 3D is when things are in the distance and in the foreground up close. I have other cameras for standard video and photos so I have nothing to say about the performance in that regard.
Summary: Whats not to like...Ive been using this camera while doing footage for the KC roller derby leagues...and Ive shot some incredible scenes of derbygirls flying right at me...its nice not having to pay $400 for a 3D camera I have to put in harms way...needs a way to hook up an external battery for extended video shooting...so 4 stars.
Summary: I got a deal on this so I for whatI paid, it's cool...very basic and featureless, but it works...the ds-esque 3d display is kinda wierd but cool, and it's onboard 10mb memory only lets you record about 3 secs of 3d video, but with my 4gig card...plenty...I'd rather have a mini-usb port than a slide-out full size one which may strain both the intit and your laptop ports...but it does make nice red/blue pics which pop with old school 3d glasses..
Summary: Since this camera is the same as the aiptek 3d camera and it had great reviews after the firmware update, I tried it on the viewsonic. I downloaded the aiptek 3d firmware update from the UK site and it applied to the viewsonic just fine. Still has the viewsonic startup screen after update. Without the update the pictures were a little blocked and only seemed like it was a 10 frames/sec.
Summary: I purchased this item with the hope of at least getting "Flip" quality video. I loved the form factor, expandable memory option and several video options. After using it (with firmware update), I can't tell anyone enough how poor the video quality is with this camera. It is very grainy and noisy. I have to say that it is unwatchable. The camera has potential in future designs, but for $100 more, take my advice and buy the Sony Bloggie 3D.
Summary: I recently received the ViewSonic 3D cam, and so far I am very pleased with it. The 3D images it takes are very good, specially for a camera that was less than 100 dollars shipped. The software that ships with it is very nice for viewing the videos or still shots, but if the video is very long, it takes a looong time to edit, even on a decent computer. I've found that if you keep the video length under 5 minutes, it does fine.
Summary: Since I already own the Aiptek 3-D HD camcorder I thought I would make a comparison with this ViewSonic 3-D HD camcorder since it's now selling for $94.00. They both physically look the same except the 2 lenses on the ViewSonic are guarded by a frame around the lenses. The functions are the same on both camcorders and both include Nvidia 3-D softwear for compatibility.
