Summary: The camcorder is used by the Wood Turners club for demonstrations video and displayed on a large TV. The picture quality is very good. I had to purchase a seperate video cord to transfer the picture to the TV which I knew was not provided.
Summary: This is an excellent little camera for the price. It was everything I expected. There is a little bit of motor noise when the zoom is used but nothing major unless you are looking for something super professional. I like the size - fits in a pocket or purse for travel. I would recommend it.
Summary: seems good for a camcorder. Although the still camera has a higher Resolution CCD (1 Meg), The snap button does not have the 2 step feature as seen in the better Optura line (model 50/60). So when you snap the picture, it does not snap right away since it has focus first.
Summary: Huge miniDV bang for the buck. Very little compression using tape, very good image & optical quality for the size. Slight zoom noise. Very good low-light performance even though experts pan this cam. Stills are good enough if you can't carry another still cam.
Summary: Except for zoom out (you won't be able to get a wide angle view if you're in a small closed space) and think about getting a second battery (if you rewind the tape the juice is almost gone) Apart from those problems I am very satisfied.
Summary: Good camera for people who just want to capture life on camera, and who aren't looking to spend a lot.
Pros: Bought this camera because of reviews here and elsewhere were mostly positive. Good first time camera, great price. I needed something to video my first child, and her trips to grandparents and the holidays. Easy to use, compact, great price. Good video quality with the right amount of light. I h...
Cons: The motor is a little noisy, so in low sound areas, you can hear the motor whine. Low light performance a little weak. Built in LED light is pretty much useless.
