11 Reasons For

Good Size

One customer who reviewed the Aiptek PocketDV T220 thought it was compact. Nik mentioned in their Aiptek PocketDV T220 review on Amazon “Free-standing, this cam/corder has a fair suite of 'compact digital camera' settings, including flash options”.

Easy to Use

One customer who purchased it concluded that it was easy to use the menus.

Reasonably Priced

One Aiptek PocketDV T220 owner wrote in their reviews that it was a bargain for the price. Mr. Mark Provan said in his Aiptek PocketDV T220 review “Cheap and cheerfull” .

Aiptek Has Good Video Camera Reviews

Whilst Aiptek is one of the superior video camera manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, Aiptek has unexceptional reviews specifically for its medium sensor size video cameras.

SD Memory Card

This camcorder supports an MMC|SD memory card, which is typical of many camcorders of a similar age and spec to it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

Chart Edit

Has One Photo Effect

The PocketDV T220 has a greater number of photo effects than most video cameras of this age and spec. This video camera has a Black&White photo effect, which is the most commonly found photo effect found on similar spec camcorders that have been on the market for around the same time as the PocketDV T220.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Display

Like most of the other camcorders of this spec and age, the PocketDV T220 has a built-in display.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with a built-in display and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony HDR-CX240, and the Samsung HMX-R10 is also worth considering.

This camcorder has an Auto white balance mode, which is the most frequently found white balance mode found on camcorders that were released more than two years ago. The white balance modes "Cloudy", "Fluorescent", "Sunny" and "Tungsten" are also found on this Aiptek video camera.

15 Reasons Against

Quite Small Maximum Memory Card Size

Across all the camcorders of a comparable spec and age to the PocketDV T220 the maximum memory card sizes range from 2GB to 130GB. The maximum memory card size of the PocketDV T220 of only 2 gigabytes is one of the smallest amongst camcorders that were launched around the same time as the PocketDV T220.

If you want a video camera with a larger maximum memory card size then you might also want to look at the easypix DVC5227 (£70.62) (8GB), or the Philips CAM101 (32GB) which is also higher rated.

Medium sensor size video cameras that have been available for more than two years have screen sizes of between 1.5" and 4", and the average screen size is 2.8". The screen size of the PocketDV T220 of only 1.5 inches is one of the smallest amongst camcorders that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PocketDV T220.

Very Small Digital Zoom

Alternative 4x (digital) camcorders currently available which you might want to consider include the HM-TA2, or the HM-TA20 both from Panasonic which has better reviews.

If this camcorder digital zoom is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Camileo BW10 (10x), or the Camileo S40 (10x) both from Toshiba or the Panasonic AG-AC90 (£1,239.00) (10x) which also has a higher rating.
