Aiptek HDV21X 1080p High Definition Camcorder

Aiptek‘s HDV21X is a portable video recorder that uses SDHC cards to store as much as 32GB of HD video. You can get 8 hours of 1440 x 1080 video on a 32GB SDHC card. The price point of $199.99 is significant: you can’t get anything like this for so less.

Now there is one concern. I am hesitating to say that the HDV21X is a 1080p camcorder because if that’s the case, I want to see a pixel format of 1920 x 1080. Not the 1440 x 1080 pixel format; that’s pseudo 1080p. If you want to keep your digital video archives nice and simple, keep to the 1280 x 720 (720p) setting and shoot at 60fps; those settings will better match any flat panel TV setup you have at home since all of them run at 60fps or higher.
