Bad sound quality

matt, Amazon

  • Summary: My old DVD camcorder had no way to get the videos onto the computer, so I got this little camera. The video quality isn't all that great, but it is super easy to use and very compact. There is one huge downfall though: the sound. All of the videos that I made, my voice was not audible. Also, there is no place to plug in an external microphone. Only get this if you don't need any sound or you are putting music to the video after you import it.

Look Again, and again, and again.

  • Summary: If you want a video camera that makes everything dark, even if you have a light right on top of the camera, or one that catches the tiniest puff of sound, then this is the right camera for you. I bought this camera, hoping I could make small cheap movies with it, and that's exactly what it did. I captured several movies on it, and almost none are saved to my computer because of the provided software. It is impossible to use.

Satisfied

  • Summary: Satisfied. I like the size of the camera, making it easy to maneuver and carry. I like the flexible screen to view pictures. I wish it had a flash because certain lighting makes the pictures and videos hard to view. I am also having problems with the delay click in the picture mode, sometimes missing poses of dogs and cats. I do enjoy the video feature and the sound is really clear for what I need.

Lighting is an issue

  • Summary: this unit doesn't work well unless there is really good lighting. I mean like outside on a sunny day lighting. So it would be good for those that want to use it for the kids games, it wouldn't work well for the kids plays.

Nice little unit but didn't last

  • Summary: The quality is not bad at all for the price, but the joystick's ok button failed in about 4 months with my 8 year old son using it. I didn't realize it, but the warranty on this product is 90 days. Will likely replace with a higher priced and hopefully more durable unit.

Meh...

  • Summary: Bought this camera with the gift card my parents gave me for my birthday, I use it for making my youtube videos that are very popular with the kids in my school, and I'm planning on upgrading come Christmas. The big problems I have with it: No place for a tripod, grainy pictures, you have to have a ton of light, and you have to take video from quite a bit of distance. A good starter camera for students, but definitely plan on upgrading.

Not the best

  • Summary: Took this camera on our cruise. It was good because of it's size, but when I developed the pictures, they were very poor quality. The picture was "grainy" and the colors were way off. My beautiful beach in Belize looked awful.

Reviews have it!

Lisa Russo, Amazon
27 January 2011
  • Summary: I read the reviews available before purchasing and everybody was right on the mark. Downsides are poor in low light and sound quality is low. You also have to have a steady hand or it's jerky. But, hey, for under $40 it does what it's supposed to. Great for kids just starting out. Great for those of us with little money but still want to record our lives and families. Love the portability and ability to just change batteries instead of having to wait for a new charge.

Keep dropping it!

V. Ross, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: I have small hands and assumed this would be an easy camera for me to use but I keep dropping it! The controls are in a place that makes me flip it right onto the floor when I try to use it. Practice will help, I am sure & I hope I don't break it before I get used to it. The video is good the pictures are clear and the ability to easily download a video is nice.
