5.0 out of 5 stars Better with the Mystery Firmware Update, October 8, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Aiptek 3D-HD High Definition 3D Camcorder (Black/Black) (Electronics)
After getting over the excitement of a 3D camcorder to support my 3DTV, the disappointment began. There were few, if any, instances where the camera was shooting in the promised 30 Frames Per Seconds. Normally the camera would dip down to 15fps and at that point, I stopped taking the camera with me everywhere I went.

So why the high rating?

I stumbled upon a video on youtube shot with my camera and the title to the video was "Aiptek 3D video with new Firmware" The video looked great and was running at a steady 30fps. After asking a few questions, I discovered that Aiptek's European website had a downloadable firmware that fixed the framerate. Nothing was available in the US site, so after asking a few people who had the firmware if it was safe, I installed it into my camera, and sure enough, my usability has taken a huge turn for the better. For 200 bucks, and with this firmware, the camera is an awesome introduction to the 3D world.

Click on driver and software.
The 4200 worked for me.
Also the HDCam software was essential as a patch in order to install the TotalMedia HDCam software from the camera.
