They both appear to have CMOS sensors. The Aiptek sensor is larger at 3Mp. The difference between 2 and 3Mp is pretty significant if you wanted to print an A4.

Both cameras appear to be primarily for movies with only a secondary still image capability. If still images are a priority the third camera you listed on the other thread looks to be a better choice.

Thanks slipe. I forgot to post the link for the CCD cam.

Excelline 5MP CCD camera http://www.bidshot.com/index.php?pag...1046&view=

wont the excelline cam be able to capture better quality videos? and would the camera having a ccd sensor really matter? thanks.

I think if you really want a digital camcorder, you should look at a mini-DV camcorder. You will definately get much better quality video.

As for CCD vs CMOS, both are good. I think the CMOS might have lower power requirements, while the CCD might have better low light sensitivity, but otherwise both are good.

For example, Sony in their new HC1 HiDef camcorder, use a CMOS sensor, and it delivers excellent video.

And while on the subject of HiDef camcorders, take a look at this new one from Sanyo:

It is of a similar design to those you posted.

Thanks guys for the tip. I ended up with the Excilline cam. It turned out to be a good buy. I'll post a review here someday. Thanks again. :-)
