Summary: Let me start by saying I'm 65 years old. I remember very well the old betamax and vhs format video recorders. With that in mind I disagree with the reviews on here that claim this camera is a "toy." I suppose if you compare it against the real expensive 3D camcorders it would seem like a toy.
... back or so and it seems to be a good camera for 3D pictures
12 November 2015
Summary: Got this a month back or so and it seems to be a good camera for 3D pictures. Videos are not bad either. Good starter camera for 3D. I tried Sony Bloggie 3D as well (a used one). The video seemed better as it was a 1080p video when compared to Aiptek's 720p.
Summary: This item comes with a USB cable only, no actual charging unit. The manual however states that is can be charged via PC USB port. After setting my PC to not go into sleep mode overnight, the battery light remained flashing red/green and upon removing the cable, the unit was completely dead.
Summary: First of all, I have to say that I bought it for under $70 on Amazon last summer. Currently, it is at $150. Whether you'd want to pay this much - depends. As a 3D photo camera, it is dead simple and effective. The photos are cellphone-quality, but in decent light they are solid, with great 3D.
Summary: Be honest. Buying a 3D video cam for less than $100.00 you shouldn't expect much. This is a great cam to keep around and take home pictures or throw in the car "just in case." I've taken a few videos and been satisfied with the image and sound quality for the price.
Good 3D implementation piggybacking on mediocre HD camera

Summary: As others have mentioned, it's a good idea to start off upgrading the firmware before you use this camera. See the discussion thread for this product for details on where to get the firmware, and for my corrected instructions on how to determine your firmware level.
Summary: I bought this camera of Ebay used for $103, at first the video was dropping frames if there was any fast movement in the video you were tiring to capture but after a little research online I found that there was a firmware up date from the manufactures website that fixed the issue, so I checked...
Summary: A neat little camera. The 3D really works, although the supposed 3D viewing screen on the back really doesn't give much of the 3D effect, but that's not really why you buy the camera. On the TV screen it's foolproof...you point, shoot, upload to YouTube and it's done.
