Do your movies and photos feel a little flat? Lacking in visual oomph? Then prepare to step into a whole new dimension with the jaw-droppingly, eye-poppingly impressive Aiptek 3D HD Camcorder.

This amazing compact camera utilises two lenses and two sensors to capture stunning high definition (1280x720) 3D video and stills. But you won’t need special glasses to view your handiwork on the fly because the Aiptek’s on-board 2.4” display boasts a built-in 3D filter. Impressive? You’ll be poking its screen to make sure the third dimension is just an illusion.

If you’re posh enough to own a 3D TV you can enjoy your movies straight away, no glasses required. Just get connected via the Aiptek’s HDMI socket. ‘Look out, incoming beach ball!’

If you want to view your footage on a standard 2D computer or TV, just pop on the included red/cyan specs and make sure you convert the footage beforehand using the Aiptek’s super-intuitive embedded software. The whole process is smoother than a gravy sandwich.

Okay the shades look a bit daft, but who cares about funny face furniture when you’re watching little Johnny’s first steps or gazing at some numpty falling off a skateboard in glorious 3D. You can even paint the family blue and head to the nearest forest for Avatar: The Remix.

Plugs into your computer via a flip out USB connector

Of course you’ll want to share your astonishing 3D movies and stills with the rest of the world so the Aiptek plugs into your computer via a flip out USB connector. Pals can even watch uploaded vids on YouTube 3D (3D glasses required). Wow!

Did we mention that this groundbreaking cam also takes high quality snaps and vids in good ol’ 2D? Probably not, but that’s only because we’re so excited by the incredible depth and realism of all this 3D business.

Unsurprisingly the idiot-proof Aiptek is powered by a rechargeable battery (1.5 hours recording time) and movies are stored to memory card (SD/SDHC/MMC). It also features a built-in stereo microphone and speaker. In fact the only thing it doesn’t feature is an integrated dustpan and brush to sweep up your popped-out eyeballs. Seeing is disbelieving!

Given that the movement on the camera lags and it's such a pixelated picture along with the several purple dots that appear on screen mine will be going back 5 mins after coming out of the box, shame seemed so promising but HD? I'm just not wow'd.

Chris Jones, Southampton - 11th September 2010
As I am new to 3D filming I don't know if the jerky nature of the movies when filmed with the camera in my hand is due to it having 2 lenses but when filming using a tripod the image quality is great. Lighting should be a major consideration if you plan to view movies in red and cyan (anaglyst) for me daylight is best, colour wise. For the money this is excellent purchase and will add a whole new dimension to family and other movie projects :o).
James, London - 10th September 2010
This would be good little camera for those wanting to enter the 3D photo and video world if it did not unfortunately have some flaws. I found the image on screen which is used as the viewfinder to be almost impossible to see in bright sunlight as it was so dim. This meant that I had to take videos and pictures more or less 'blind', hoping that I got the shots I wanted. The video quality was also quite poor with one of the most jerky zooms I have used on a video camera. On the plus side however the 3D stills the camera produced were excellent.
Michael Sorrell, Isle Of Man - 27th August 2010
I am extremely disappointed in the quality of the video produced in 3D. Stills produced in 3D are of a higher quality and are generally acceptable, which almost makes this camcorder acceptable as a 3D stills camera. But thats not really what its designed for is it. You do get what you pay for and if you don't expect much when you order the camcorder you won't be disappointed, its a toy but certainly not something you'd want to display through your expensive 3D TV to impress your friends.
