Summary: I had ordered this fpr my nephew for Christmas. He was very excited as he wanted to make movies with it. Unfortunately, the internal battery would not charge and we had to return it. Customer service was very good and took care of the refund quickly.
if you own a cell phone, you can probably skip this model
Desert Gypsy "A Brooklyn Girl Out West", Amazon
4 January 2012
Summary: With the positive reviews and really great price I had high hopes for this little video recorder but unfortunately the video quality is really awful. CONS: Terribly grainy ("noisy") image even in HD. Shooting in HD created a tremendously large file making it hard to share/export. Colors are WAY off - whites/lights are washed out, reds appear magenta, wood tones appear sepia. Poor stabilization; even though I tried to move my hands smoothly the images seem really shaky.
Summary: Length:: 1:34 Mins *note: You'll see in the video that I should have cleaned the glass of my aquarium before filming, but I decided to leave it so you could get an idea for the detail that gets picked up (even while some things - like the markings on a German blue ram, are a little out of focus due to how close I was). I was looking for something cheap and simple that made great video for a beginner. My expectations were low, but my hopes were high.
Summary: I was not expecting much out of this baby for the price. I spent over $500 a few years back for a camera and was disappointed, so $100 seemed like a throwaway. I was blown away. This is my new favorite toy.
Summary: This is one neat camcorder, simple to use with amazing video quality.Record an event and watch it back as soon as you want. Just remember to pick up micro SD card when you order, the Small Wonder has a small built in memory
Summary: maybe I just got a "lemon", but, I had a very bad experience with this RCA camcorder, and I am very disappointed. first of all, when I plugged the camcorder into usb port in my computer, windows xp did not recognize the device, second of all, after I unplugged the camcorder, I tried to turn it on, and found out the screen broke when I plugged the device into the computer.
