User Review

  • Summary: I like most everything about this camera but I am surprised that even shooting in "full HD" the picture seems to be a bit grainy when using it indoors... In full sunlight outside however the video quality is great. Plus taking pictures with it is next to impossible! You have to push really hard on the buttons and doing so makes it impossible to get a clear shot!

Okay camera but a few things bothered me

  • Summary: I wanted to like this video camera. I really did. I ordered it specifically for the fact that it uses generic AA alkaline batteries (aka the batteries you can get at the convenient store up the street and not have to deal with crappy tech support to order an over-priced lithium ion battery replacement). I knew what I was getting. I have had vcams that performed better than this one.

May be great for teens

  • Summary: I bought this for my parents so my dad could whip it out and video his great grandson wrestling. Buttons are way too small for the older crowd, so I had to return it. It almost seemed like a toy. Picture quality may have been good once downloaded, but terrible on the little screen (once again, not good for the older crowd). Also, there wasn't enough room to hold with one hand and video without your fingers getting in the way of the viewfinder.

Disappointing

  • Excerpt: I am really sorry to have to write a negative review about this camera. It is compact. It takes great HD video (particularly in the 720P setting). The still pics are adequate. It functions great under water. So, what is negative? <br /><br />The movies (.MOV format) cannot be edited in any software that I have. In Sony Vegas Studio 9 the sound and the pictures are not in synch. In Pinnacle HD 14 and in Avid Studio there is no (zero; zip) sound at all. None.
  • Pros: Good movies in 720P
  • Cons: Can't edit the movies, No image stabilization, Poor In Low Light

  • Excerpt: Bought for artistic 14 year old daughter and she loves it. The only problem is you cannot use it right out of the box becuase you need to buy a mini-memory card.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance

Buy for short captures only

  • Excerpt: The battery life is horrible. Filming for an extended amount of time on HD drains the battery within 20 minutes. Otherwise very good and easy to use. Also, no tripod stand and the bottom has a weird clip that makes it impossible to balance camera standing up (incredibly inconvenient).
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound
  • Cons: Poor In Low Light

Absolute must for outdoor activities

  • Excerpt: Whenever I hit the road, this little viceocam is with me. And I'm often on the road. Great HD quality, and WATERPROOF. I've not used it under water yet, but it's attached to the motorcycle, AND I'm living in the tropics. That should tell you enough. A heavy tropical downpoor while cruising at 60 mph is probably worse than a dip under water.<br />I just live it!
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: No tripod connector
