I'm looking for a budget camera for my wife for Xmas. I have some extended time with an Aiptek Action HD (father has one, I showed him how to use it). The output of the Aiptek was great but the UI/Menu is absolutely horrible. I'm considering an Xacti but don't know which models are in the Aiptek price range and if the menus are any better. Any firsthand advice or is there another camera I should consider

I have the Aiptek Go HD and for the price was satisfied. The cam has many limitations however, which you would expect for the price.

Well, if you want to get out for Black Friday and willing to risk $80, Radio Shack has a cam called the Memorex MCC228 that seems similar to the Aiptek, but I have no experience with it.

I ordered a DXG-595v for $130 shipped after various discounts. It has many advantages compared to the Aiptek camcorders. The only thing is it is not as small as the Aiptek camcorders.

There is also a new Aiptek coming out similar to the DXG-595v but in the smaller size called the Aiptek Action HD GVS, so if it releases before Xmas, that could be an option.
