Lens System

Very Small Digital Zoom

The digital zooms of camcorders of a similar spec and age to this video camera range from 2x to 1,800x, and the average digital zoom is 160x. The Aiptek 3D i2 has a fairly small digital zoom (only 4 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other comparable spec video cameras that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 4x (digital) camcorders to this camcorder and we think because of their better review scores, the Aiptek PocketDV T220 (£55.77), the Olympus LS-20M, and the GE DV1 (£169.99) are also worth considering.

If this camcorder digital zoom is too small for you then you might want to look at the easypix DVC2712 (£86.94) (8x and higher rated), the Panasonic AG-AC90 (£1,430.95) (10x and higher rated), or the Aiptek ProjectorCam C25 (£200.99) (10x and higher rated).
