I want to buy myself a consumer level HD camcorder, but I find myself torn between two different models that are almost identically priced.
- Flip Ultra HD
Beautiful test videos on Youtube and Vimeo HD with crisp, clear sound.
Small, extreme ease of use.
8 Gig internal Flash memory cannot be expanded upon. (2 hours record time.)
No macro mode
- Aiptek A-HD Pro 1080p
Flash memory is expandable.
Included tabletop tripod
Not many HD test videos between YT and Vimeo, and sound/video quality seems to be lower than the Flip on the ones I did find.
Bigger than Flip, not quite as point-and-shoot.
Does anyone here have any experience with these two cameras that could offer me some advice? If I were to go by features alone the Aiptek should be the clear winner, but the test videos for the Flip seem to be of a noticeably better quality in both the video and sound department. Because of this I’m actually leaning much more toward the Flip Ultra HD, but I’m still a bit torn. Any advice is appreciated.
