Firebox is adding two budget-priced HD camcorders to its line-up of gadgets. The Aiptek AHD 200 and the Z300HD cost just £149 and £199 respectively.

The Aiptek AHD 200 has a 2.4in LCD screen for previewing footage in 16:9 aspect ratio, while the curvier Aiptek Z300HD combines a 3x optical zoom with close-ups as near as 5cm from the subject with the ability to take digital photos at up to 8Mp resolution. It also has an internal light for night-time video shoots.

The 1,280x720 pixel camcorders boast an instant-on feature and one-touch recording.

Both Aiptek camcorders are available from www.firebox.com. The British-based gadget reseller has just recently expanded its operations to the US.
