Reasonably Priced

Several Aiptek 3D i2 owners said in their reviews that the product was good value for money. Six years ago Trustedreviews.com wrote in their review on Trusted Reviews “It's also priced low enough not to matter too much”. Photographybay.com wrote in their Aiptek 3D i2 review “Personally, I would prefer to put my money into a quality HD camcorder like the Flip SlideHD”.

Good Brand

Aiptek has good average reviews across all camcorders, however it has unexceptional reviews specifically within its medium sensor size video cameras range.

Has an HDMI Port

has an HDMI port

Like most of the other video cameras of a comparable age and type to the 3D i2, the Aiptek 3D i2 has an HDMI port.

It may also be worth considering one of the other camcorders with an HDMI port currently available including the Canon Vixia HF S30[plb_61584_price], the Panasonic HDC-Z10000E[plb_1670403_price], or the Philips CAM101[plb_1396276_price] which has better reviews.

13 Reasons Against

Average Expert Reviews

This camcorder has an average expert rating of 66% based on eleven expert reviews from sites including Trusted Reviews, v3.co.uk, computeractive.co.uk and t3.dk.

Poor Design

One Aiptek 3D i2 owner reckoned that the product was not good looking. Photographybay.com mentioned “While the idea of the pocket 3D camcorder is great, Aiptek’s execution is pretty poor” in their review.

Not Good in Terms of Size

One Aiptek 3D i2 reviewer thought the Aiptek 3D i2 was not heavy and bulky. Alphr.com said in their review “The Aiptek i2 is a handheld HD camcorder - like a chunkier Flip Mino HD - with two lenses, enabling it to record true stereoscopic 3D” nonetheless they still rated it 3 stars.

Not Full HD

The Aiptek 3D i2 is not Full HD. Most of the other video cameras of this type and age do are Full HD.

If you would prefer a video camera that is Full HD then you might want to look at the Canon Vixia HF S30[plb_61584_price], the Panasonic HDC-Z10000E[plb_1670403_price], or the Samsung HMX-QF20[plb_1387760_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The Aiptek 3D i2 does not have an image stabiliser. Most of the other video cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the 3D i2 do have an image stabiliser.

It is worth considering alternative camcorders which also have an image stabiliser including the Canon Vixia HF S30[plb_61584_price], or the Sony HDR-CX440[plb_1543751_price] which is also higher rated.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 4x (digital) camcorders currently available including because of it's better review score, the Aiptek PocketDV T220[plb_1343064_price], the Panasonic HM-TA20[plb_1109281_price], or the Olympus LS-20M[plb_1691558_price].

Video cameras with a bigger digital zoom that might be worth considering include the Aiptek ProjectorCam C25[plb_2167191_price] (10x), the Panasonic AG-AC90[plb_1834081_price] (10x), or the Toshiba Camileo P20[plb_2251043_price] (16x) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Most video cameras of this age and type do not have an interchangeable lens. The Aiptek 3D i2 is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.
