Summary: This is a cheap camera so don't expect pro quality! You certainly get a lot for your money and everything works pretty much as expected. Nice bonus is the optical zoom which is one of the reasons I bought this one for my 10 year old boy.
Summary: This product was a gift for a 10-year-old primarily for taking pictures and recording videos. It is mostly used to record fav DisneyChannel shows to create a library of shows. The quality is fair for both pics and videos, but the camera is loaded with features for a not so bad price.
Summary: For starters, 5+ stars to Amazon for delivering this in about 14 hours (literally) when I opted for 2-day shipping. I'm going on vacation in a week and speed was of the essence. This is my first experience with a "hybrid" camera so I had no preconceptions. Appearance: Sleek. High tech.
Summary: My husband and I recently purchased this camcorder and used it on a road trip. Having never purchased a camcorder before it's functions were very easy to figure out. We used it for inside a museum which it did very well with and for moving car shots.
Summary: I got this as a Christmas present from my parents. And it's perfect for what I use it for! I usually like to take short clips of my family, friends, or whatever and make them into slideshows that are viewable on Youtube. This camera is compact, the buttons and menu are easy to navigate.
Summary: All I wanted when I bought this camera was something easy to use every now and then, sadly this camera fails so bad that I'm looking for something new now. I go to conventions every now and then and like to snap shots while there, however this becomes an issue with this particular camera.
Summary: I think it is very much worth it, function for the dollar, I listen to loud music, and I am very active, i use this for mp3, snapping photo's of my buddies, the lithium ion battery lasts a while for what I use it for "on the go" when i plug it into the pc it charges as i load the photo's so, that is...
Summary: I bought this camera for backpacking, where size and space is critical and any equipment is subject to harsh conditions so expensive cameras can be a bad idea. My main computer is a Mac, so I had some reservations about the MZ-DV, since it uses Microsoft's proprietary ASF video format.
Summary: I got this little gadget a few days ago and I love it. I think the negative reviews have come from people who were expecting too much. For a device that does so many different things, it does them pretty darn well.
Summary: Not sure what the other users are seeing. I have used the MPVR before from Aiptek and this product is even better. Takes great video and great pictures. Very pleased with the product. Possibly other users aren't using the auto focus properly?
