Cheap digital camera comparison – Aiptek PenCam VR 2 and PenCam Ultra versus Hercules DualPix
I’m not expecting these tiny cameras to remember how far they’ve got and start counting from the next number all real digital cameras do this – my CL’s file names are up to PC In any case, the only kind of image data you can get out of the PenCams, and various other tiny-cams, is uncompressed. Support for Aiptek GS Dashcam.
I took pictures of this test scene at two light levels – once with the room lit by just the hundred watt bulb in the ceiling fixture, and once with more watts of illumination pointing at the ceiling, and a 40 watt bulb pointed at the test scene from a few feet away.
Worth what you pay. PenCam Ultra I get the feeling that Aiptek isn’t aiming this product at big hairy men who subscribe to Soldier of Fortune and own Rottweilers. Press the camera to the trunk of a tree.
And there’s often also a general make-this-photo-nicer button, which produces results about as good as anybody could, if they were starting from a tiny-cam picture.
If you want to at least have a swing at taking quality photographs, though, the Hercules DualPix is the way to go. We powered this up and checked the functions, and it appears to be working as intended. The VC 2’s close focus setting lets it down badly when you’re out and about. The built-in memory’s apparently enough for 13 minutes of record time, which is tons by voice-note standards, though nothing much compared with proper apitek. If you happen to be a bouncy 19 year old female style leader, on the other hand, the PenCam Ultra probably looks exactly the way you want a camera to look.

This is the low light output from the PenCam VR 2 click for the full-resolution version. Recording audio on the VR 2’s easy enough once you figure it out – the multi-language manual voie tells you that there’s an audio record mode, but you have to work out for yourself that you hold the shutter button down in that mode to record. Show only see all. In the middle, Hercules’ DualPixwhich doesn’t have the unusual styling of Aiptek’s products, but claims by “XGA” resolution and superior image quality.
These let you store titchy VGA-resolution images as kilobyte files, which look no better than a 50k or smaller JPG. Fill-in mode, auto mode, flash OFF mode, red-eye reduction.
The dialog box that appears asks if you would like to restart your computer now or later. The DualPix also offers a by pixel resolution mode – indeed, it defaults to this “HQ” mode when you turn it on.
If your gymnastic photo-taking exercises result in the destruction of your camera, it’s not as if you’ve just dropped a ten thousand dollar object into the ocean.
