Too good to be true, and look out for inferior "newer" models.

Summary: The $60+ CAM5000 is physically identical to the $20 Sylvania HD1Z camera, but with better features in the firmware. The CAM5002 is what digitalpam incorrectly shipped to me, which is a severely inferior camera to the CAM5000. I ordered the camera to video wildlife.
Summary: i bought this after my flip that i had for a year broke. i expected good things from this camera. it broke after 1 hour. i emailed the Coby tech support and called multiple times and after 2 weeks they responded by basically saying, "tough luck, you bought a faulty camera" DO NOT BUY THIS!!
You pay for what you get~~!! It's a camera that creates adventure~~!!

Summary: When using the zoom feature; just hold the button up or down depending on what your range/viewing. Single clicking, leaves an annoying sound on your video clips~~!! If there is not enough lighting, your crap out of luck with this camera~~!! Have fun, MIKE
Summary: very easy to use, can take videos as well as image. small and handy. I decided to buy it because i wanted something small that was convenient to take to places. not a huge video camera. I like the design as well. easy to store the videos and images on to a computer.
Summary: I bought this camera, Christmas 2009. It is now March 2010 and the camera is fully dead. I noticed a problem about two weeks into using the product. It developed a "tick" during recording....tick...tick....tick....tick....like a clock....I was disappointed to hear it on playback as well..
Summary: I bought this about a month ago and I just opened the box to recharge the unit via its USB port. Has anyone had the same thing happen to them with this device?: It takes FOREVER to recharge its battery.
Summary: So I saw this product online and it looked legit so I picked one up for myself and a family member. All I want to know is, in 2010, what kind of camera does not have a flash??? I was astonished when I realized this. I mean, even $30 camera phones have flashes!!
Summary: Good for casual use. Noise when you click for zooming. No remote. Only 4x zooming. Just a backup camcorder. If you're shooting e.g. graduation or weddings, for a little more money, use a good camcorder. If just shooting short but good quality videos, consider investing in high-end cellphones/pda.
