It’s a pretty basic video editing package, but it’s still more than adequate for editing anything you’re going to make with the PenCam. Which, as I’ve said before in reviews of cheap cameras, is not competing at all with things it’s ten times more expensive than. Like the software that comes with most cheap webcams, the Aiptek driver saves video clips as AVIs, without much compression – though they’re not the gigantic raw-data files you often get. It’s mm high by 32mm wide by 23mm deep at its largest points 4. If you want a driver, you could try to download one from Medion, for their pen drive model MD Use the next link: You can transfer 26 high res pictures from the camera in about 17 seconds, which is what you’d expect for USB transfer of 8Mb of data.

In untethered mode, it just won’t take a picture if it doesn’t think there’s enough light. Another approach is to scroll to the bottom of the page.

Answered on Jun 01, You’ll want to use some other program to save them in a more compressed format if you take a significant number of pictures.

The PC also powers the camera while it’s connected, taking the load off the batteries. There’s some basic image processing built into the Manager, and it also works as a TWAIN driver, allowing you to import images directly into all sorts of applications.
Along with the driver, you get Ulead Photo Express 3, a perfectly OK home user pseudo-desktop-publishing package for doing simple image manipulation, and putting your pictures on greeting cards or calendars or what have you, or automatically creating HTML pages with the images on ’em, ready to be copied to a Web site.
Aiptek Cameras Answered on Feb 01, This goes for the self-timer mode as well, by the way – you can activate that mode and set yourself up to be photographed, and then just hear the low beep that tells you to try again, this time with a lamp pointed your way. Give Dan some money!

The PenCam has no scaling ability, and so when you pick a resolution other than those two, you just get an appropriately sized piece of the middle of one of them.
It’s got a decent amount of storage, reasonable image quality, and you can work around its low light cutoff problem, which might otherwise sink it. Even daytime indoor shots commonly can’t be taken. The Astracam can’t take seven pictures a second, but it can store 46 by shots in its built in memory, and aipyek low light performance is excellent.
You can’t possibly include an on-camera image display. You can transfer 26 high res pictures from the camera in about 17 seconds, which is what you’d expect for USB transfer of 8Mb of data. A 26 frame by movie comes out at about 2.
The Aiptek’s lens is a basic webcam unit, down to the rotating focus ring. So it should work fine with Microsoft NetMeeting and pretty much any other Windows video package you care to name. My Aiptek pencam 2 is over 9 years old and it works! When you save the images, though, they come out as uncompressed BMP files much larger than whatever format the camera stores them in.
