I wrote about the Aiptek A-HD a while back as an inexpensive 720p HD camcorder. Today I just realized that Aiptek has a newer model, the A-HD+, which will also record in 1080p @ 30fps and 720p @ 60fps. This economy, high-definition camcorder looks to be a great entry-level camcorder that just happens to be HD. This camera also has the appeal of being easy to carry with you where ever you go, without having to worry about damaging or losing a high-dollar piece of equipment.
Here are the product features from Aiptek’s site:
