Decent device, outdated software.

  • Summary: For those looking for a simple, lightweight HD video recorder/camera, this is a very good device. The standard packaging includes a tripod which helps greatly as the still images end up blurry if not used, especially in low light, and video can be jerky due to lack of image stabilization. For taking some simple videos of family or events, it works very well.

This camera deserves more credit...

  • Summary: Length:: 0:44 Mins This is an awesome camera...no matter what you may take away from the other reviewers comments. I will agree that you are best served by using a tripod because the unit is so small and light weight...but THAT'S WHY PEOPLE BUY IT, so why criticize the product for doing/being exactly what the manufacturer claims it will do/be?

Pretty good camera for size.

  • Summary: For some time now, I have been wanting a light and easy-to-carry camcorder so I can record anything around me or take pictures. One of my local stores had this on sale in a bundle pack and I thought that it was a pretty good camera from looking at the specifications on the box. When I tried the camera out I liked the 720p HD video and the nice 8mp pictures but the big set back to the pictures was the objects had to be very still and the camera had to be very still.

very disappointed with this camera

L. Gagnon, Amazon

  • Summary: I wish this product had more reviews to help me make a decision but since I couldn't find reviews of the DXH-579v anywhere I decided to buy it anyway. BIG MISTAKE. 1) ZOOM impossible to use smoothly. Doesn't matter how slow you're zooming it's all jittery. 2)Wind noise is unbearable and extremely loud. NOW I have to spend MORE money to buy a windcutter to stick on the mike just so I can use the darn thing.
