fun little camera.....as long as you don't expect too much

 

Ahhhhh, the Aiptek. *grin* This will be a long term use review also, as I have had this little camera for about three years now. And yes, it still works. I have even carried it in my pocket riding motorcycles on hundreds of miles of back country...

Super james bond cam and the REAL mc'oy

 

For it's intended use, it's simply a fantastic multi function all around device, a quality feature filled 1.3 mega pixel printable camera this is not. First off battery life, really good (150-300 outdoor shots) but it also draws a small current ...

Coolest Thing Ever...Yes...Ever

 

I dont know about you, but lugging around a huge digital camera with me during everyday life and even when I have a specific reason to bring it somewhere is not extremely appealing to me. When I saw this tiny camera I couldnt beleive how cool it was....

Tiny Size, Inexpensive, Picture and Video Capture, Over 1 mp, Easy to use Software

Short battery life, low end picture quality, no flash, beeping noise

This mini camera would have made Desmond Llewelyn proud.

 

1.3MP digital camera, webcam, extremely small size, simple to use

Poor low light performance, drains batteries, no flash

Good emergency camera for outdoor pictures.

 

This camera is compact and light enough to throw in your pocket and take anywhere. Picture quality is ok for snapshots. PC software is acceptable but the download of pictures to your computer is a little slow.

Small and very light

Poor low light/indoor picture quality

Fun while it lasted.

 

The Good:

Tiny, decent photos, easy to use

No flash, bad as a webcam, no customer support

James Bond just has to have one.

 

This is the digital camera I have been waiting for ... ultra small (around the size of my old Minox) and at least 1 Megapixals. I have only had it for a few days now, but do have some opinions on it.

Spy camera" size. Can go anywhere.Good quality images

Takes getting used to because of small size.Some trouble installing due to missing files

Aiptek Mini PenCam Digital Camera

 

Extremely versatile and affordable compact digital. I'm a REALTOR and was looking for a camera that was easy to carry, yet had enough resolution for my marketing needs. I upload pix to my different advertisers who then print them out, and also to my...

Great for email, short videos & conference calling

Software does not allow conversion from bitmap to jpeg formatting. Fragile. Low light problems

MiniCam Everyone Should Own

 

This cam does it all! Webcam, Digicam, and even has a videocapture function. I think calling it a videocapture device is a bit misleading. It only captures maximum of 120seconds of video (no audio). But the real deal with this cam is that it can take...

Superb Quality Pictures, LOW LOW PRICE, TRUE 1.3megapixel, super portable

no flash, annoying beep when buttons pressed, shutter button in an uncomfortable spot
