Summary: This was a pretty cool camera for my 11-yr old budding movie producer. He ran around and took videos and still shots of everything and rendered them to CD. It had relatively good resolution. After several months, something happened to the display, we shipped it back to the vendor and it was promptly replaced with no issue. I feel we got our money's worth.
I have had this thing now for two years. I got it a C.City on sale. It had a mail in rebate so the total cost came to 50 dollars.
Pros: It is cheap and it works. It fits into your pocket and you do not worry about wasting DVD disks. It is fun and for the price you could care less if it breaks on not. It has yet to break and i have two boys that grab it and shoot there own videos. What do I care. We shoot all the time on it and they love watching themselves. IT is fun.
Summary: Got two of these last christmas for my kids. Ended up paying around $50 each with discounts I had. For my kids age 8 and 14 these have been great. They love to make stop motion movies. It was well worth the money. And they've used them almost everday since christmas.Only had one problem and that was a knob fell off after my son dropped his but it still works. They may drop the price on them like they did last christmas, if they do snap one up for your kid.
Summary: I got this camera about 4 mos. ago, and have waited until I fully used the camera a lot to write this review. So here we go:
1. This is a cheap camera, and won't hurt your budget.
2. This is a great camcorder for vacations, where optimum picture quality isn't your number one concern.
3. This camcorder is small and very easy to operate.
4. The camcorder comes with a USB cable and it is easy to post videos and pictures onto your computer.
Summary: After maybe two or three videos with this product, it gave out on me. I pressed the button, it stuck and never worked again. No damage or misuse. I didn't expect much, but I was at least expecting it to last a little longer.
Summary: I bought this camera with the undrestanding that it was small and the price gave away the fact that you may not get much. But I never would have thought one could box such a peice of poo and let/allow others to purchas it. My story of "Joy, to This isnt even a good toy" I wanted something compact that my wife could purse away until our children did somethig cute or fun.
Summary: I really wanted the little guy to work, but in the end, it went back. A Flip that I returned had a much better picture than this device, but couldn't get the data off of it making it useless, no matter how good the picture was. With this one, it made a clicking sounding while recording with the camcorder aspect of it. So all you heard during play back was a clicking sound along with a VERY poor picture. I didn't expect much for $85 but wasn't worth $20...
Summary: I purchased this for my 9 year old for Christmas. She opened it Christmas morning and took out the tripod - which broke when unfolding it. It is easy to use and makes decent videos, but without purchasing a separate memory card, it is very limited. She uses primarily to create You Tube videos of her stuffed animals, so it works well for that, but I would not recommend it for anyone looking for a quality video camera - good for kids though!
Summary: You get what you pay for- maybe even less. I got it out of the box and the viewing screen is about half of what I expected. *******IT IS NOT WINDOWS VISTA COMPATIBLE!!!!!!!***********The video and picture quality are not anything to boast about. I got this to take pictures of products, but would be embarrassed to post the pictures I got from it. PLUS!!! I had pics stored on the phone itself, but I am unable to use/view them with an SD card on the phone.
