Summary: The camera is EXTREMELY cheaply made. If you are getting this for a child, they will love it. However, if you're an adult and even want home videos and recordings of life events, don't get it. Very bad quality. I got it because I want to vlog on youtube, but the quality is too poor and I couldn't figure a way to let it sit on my dresser correctly to film myself (because the camera is vertical not horizontal.) I didn't care for it and I returned it right away.
Summary: I bought this camcorder just to exchange some videos with a friend on You-Tube. The picture quality is not to bad for a $30.00 camera, but the sound is poor. Since I wanted to use it for some guitar videos-the sound was important. This however, is a nice little pocket cam that you can use in a crunch to shoot video. As I said, the video is not to bad and it's easy to use. Would be great for the kids.
