The Aiptek 3D i2 has two lenses each one with it’s own CMOS sensors, therefore the Aiptek 3D i2 can record in true stereoscopic 3D. All of which is displayed on its inbuilt 2.4” inc combined all in one 3D / 2D screen. The screen is a 2.4in parallax-barrier LCD panel which allows you to view your 3D videos directly on the device without the need for 3D glasses. This is certainly one of the Aiptek 3D i2’s USPs (unique selling points) as it provides a compelling illusion of depth which is both bright and clear, even in direct sunlight. As for the still images, the Aiptek 3D i2 JPEG compression has a resolution of 1,296 x 1,444, stretched to a 4:3 aspect ratio, the quality of which is on a par with reasonable phone camera.
You will also need to purchase an SD card to record the videos on to. The Aiptek 3D i2 will happily support an SD card up to 32 GB in size.

The Aiptek 3D i2 records in the side by side (SBS) format, which as the name suggests is a format in which the 3D image is composted together side by side. The left half of the image is sent to the left eye and the right image is sent to the right eye. This means you do not need to use the Red,Crayon 3D glasses. Below are a few 3D videos I short using the Aiptek 3D i2, they are in SBS format and should be watched on a 3D compatible monitor / TV or ideally through a 3D / VR headset, such as Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or Microsoft Mixed Reality headsets for best results.
