Battery dead on arrival

Summary: Save your money and avoid this crap product. I'm unable to use the product because the battery arrived dead and it's impossible to find replacement batteries. When you contact the company customer service they will tell you that they don't sell camcorders and do not know how to contact the "Bell & Howell" company. I now have a camcorder that will only work when plugged into an outlet or with an extension cord.
Summary: Unable to use the product because it's impossible to find replacement batteries. Mine arrived with a dead battery. I would be happy to buy another battery but stores don't carry this type. When you contact the company customer service they will tell you that they don't sell camcorders and do not know how to contact the "Bell & Howell" company. I now have a camcorder that will only work when plugged into an outlet or with an extension cord.
Summary: We had to return this item because the screen had a large lune through it that would not ho away. Amazon sent another camcorder of the exact same model and it's battery would not hold a charge. The one bright spot in this purchase was the service from Amazon.
Great video quality, great audio quality a generally good camera

Summary: We got this about a week ago. It doesn't have any internal memory, but it does have the capability of holding up to 64gb of video/pictures/audio at one time through the use of it's two SD card slots. One fits a micro SD and the other fits a regular SD card. Each holds up to 32 gb. The video quality is crisp and it handles different lighting situations alright. The LED light on it is very bright. I have recorded about 3 hours of video.
Summary: When I was a kid, the closest thing to a camcorder that was available were movie cameras that used either 8mm or 16mm movie film. Some had no sound recording capabilities for home use, and some did. Our family had a Bell & Howell 16mm camera, projector, and take-down movie screen on a tripod stand. The camera and projector were very good quality and a top selling brand at that time.

I HAVENT TRIED THE PICTURE YET SO I WILL WRITE ANOTHER REVIEW SOON. IT FEELS STURDY AND CAME WITH ALL THE NECESSARY CABLES FOR ALL THE CONNECTIONS. I LIKE IT.
