Summary: Don't fall for the inexpensive price. This camera is not even worth a cent. The video quality is poor, and it is far from user friendly. Mine ended up in the trash because it was useless for any video whatsoever.
Summary: I bought this camera first because of the price, and 2nd because of what it can do. We have a JVC older model VHS-C camera which is now just too bulky when it comes to traveling. We are getting ready to take a cruise and I thought this would be perfect for that occasion. I've tested it out briefly and will write another review once I'm back from our trip but based on the initial test this camera is great! Too cool!

Summary: Bought this for my daughter and it is an excellent camera. Price was very reasonable and it doesn't feel cheap. Construction is just as good as the expensive Kodak Picture is good quality. Not entirely the best but fine for Internet youtube posting, and even for home use. I have used this for business and it works great. Especially the mic input feature.
Summary: Although this is a small and inexspensive video camera/camera it takes great pictures and video's. For the price it is a great deal, once you figure out how to use its features, instructions didn't describe very well. I purchased a 8GB card to store my video's and photo's on. I have yet to use it long enough to determine how long the battery last, but so far it has exceeded my expectations. Not good in low light area's as it has no light or flash.

Summary: I was once quite pleased with this camera. It was used a few times (I would say less than ten times) and seemed to be holding its own. However, out of nowhere the camera no longer wants to zoom in/out and the video has suddenly gone ridiculously grainy. This video camera is definitely no longer HD. The pictures - which were hard to take at that angle to begin with - have gotten to the point that most cell phones take higher quality photos than this camera.
Not a bad camcorder but for pictures that's another story.

Summary: Got mine from Camera World at a good price at the time. For pictures i'm sticking with my Kodak 4330,beautiful terrible in video. For video this one,indoors is grainy on some not all,lighting outdoors is better. OF INTEREST:Fully Charged Battery is 3 Yellow Bars. I'm using Windows XP,SP3,USB and a Card Reader then to PC instead of the ArcSoft Disc. Record is Set Setting on Changes In Resolution Etc: Camera needs to be on hooked directly by USB On Camera To USB.
Summary: This unit is good for money. Not expect top of the line HD videos. Its good to put in car or bag to shoot some action when you want. Low light video is far better than Sony webbie. Good features, Nice video i can say its good value not excellent either. Pros Built in USB connection to connect pc Removable battery Can be charged by mini usb charger/cable from even computer SD card (cheaper than any other memory form) Better finishing Cheap i paid [...
