Good for a first camcorder maybe?

The PocketDV AHD 200 records in High Definition (HD) 720p (1280 x 720 pixel), has a frame rate of 30 frames per second and boasts a 5 megapixel CMOS sensor. The high definition recording is in 16:9 format, whilst CIF and D1 is recorded and played back in 4:3 format. SD and SDHC (High Capacity) cards up to 32 GB are compatible and will allow up to 16 hours of HD recording. It records in a format called AVC (Advanced Video Codec) / H.264, whereby 30 minutes of recording uses 1 Gigabyte of memory. Recharging presents no problems via USB or the power adapter. The supplied remote control, the swivel-mounted 2.4-inch TFT LCD display, as well as night mode for recording in dim light are also great features so you can experience a compact, lightweight and straight forward HD Camcorder and Still image camera.

* High Definition camcorder featuring 5MP CMOS sensor and 16:9 wide screen mode
* View your films on 2.4" LCD display, HD or Standard TV (cables supplied)

This would be by far the best cam if you want something for an RC model...

Voted cold, worst camcorder ever...

Yup use flycam for rc models , these cameras are terrible and battery life is a joke.

Personally I found myself looking at this from Toshiba - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Toshiba-Camileo-Camcorder-Memory-Screen/dp/B001B3HLXO/

Can this be used as a web cam?
#10
Checked this out a while ago but the video quality is shoddy to say the least. You get what you pay for I guess though. Personally, I'm waiting for the Flip MinoHD :D.

CMOS sensor means the colour reproductive will be poor and light-sensitivity is low (CMOS sensors are cheap so are mainly used in webcams; *real* digital cameras use CCD). Expect average results in daylight and poor results in all other conditions.

Next generation of digital cameras will all do video at 720p anyway, so worth waiting a bit for those.
#13
There are a lot of these flying around some badged up Hitachi, Toshiba, Sanyo but likely produced under licence elsewhere.

They will give good daylight recording, they are light and portable and are cheap and cheerful.

However, they rarely have image stabilisation, lens is low quality and they feel cheap. The worst point is the stabilisation as keeping completely still is awkward and any shake is noticeable.

If you have a limited budget, you need it for daylight recording outdoors and you have a rock-steady hand go for it.

I was looking at the Toshiba a few weeks ago. I read on the web that it was a rebadged Aiptek so not sure it would be much better (the pinch of salt is there for 'facts' picked up on the web). I left it until I could physically see one in a shop and check out the quality.

More research required rather than just rushing out and buying. I think there is a 2 or 3 second clip available on the web for this camera on the aiptek website - not very revealing though which I suppose suggests they're trying to hide something. The reviews from users are mixed - bast thing since sliced bread / worst camera ever, but I suppose it depends on expectations.

The Toshiba is a rebadged Aiptek.

The top HD Sony camcorders use CMOS sensors.

It's pretty good. I have one, I like it. Though battery life is a joke.
#17
i used to have an early model aiptek.

General feeling for Aiptek is that It's ok for casual use. Don't expect to be wow'ed by the results. For the price, it's ok.. Neither hot nor cold really
#18
Mine is good. sound is poor but plays back well through xbox 360. Batteries are only a few pound on ebay, so the battery life causes me no probs. Loads of recording time on a 2gb sd.

Nikon's D300 uses a CMOS Sensor, and as digital cameras go, that's pretty *real*.
