Quick and Handy

Michael G., Newegg
8 July 2008
  • Summary: This is ideal for someone that doesn't want to be too serious about footage. It's great for vloggers or people capturing family memories.
  • Pros: From off and in pocket to on and recording in 12 seconds. The video quality is suprizing and the functionality of the camcorders auto software works well even in low light. I've only had to replace batteries a couple of times.
  • Cons: Video is recorded using MP4 standard. That makes using in some editing suites a chore.

Decent video camera for those without a smartphone or need of HD

TJ Gunther, Amazon
18 May 2008
  • Summary: Used this for a journalism class a few years ago. Takes alright video, but it's definitely not the same caliber as many smartphones can produce nowadays. The biggest issue is that the USB plus is built into the camera and won't fit into my laptop while it is resting on the table.

Very nice

shane p., Newegg
9 May 2008
  • Summary: This is a great camera for the casual user. It’s the one you buy for the family member who might not be too tech savvy. The super fast start up time makes it great for catching those moments where your kid is doing something really cute or your buddy is doing something really dumb!
  • Pros: This camera is ultra compact, sleek and sturdy feeling. It’s insanely simple to use. Perfect for the non-techie user but as someone who is very tech savvy, I like enjoy a lot as well. This Camera produces quality that is probably on par with a VHS movie, which I don’t consider too bad for how com...
  • Cons: Only has 2X zoom. You can’t expand the memory either, no SD slot! It requires you to install a specific codec to view the videos in their raw format, it appears to auto-install off the camera but that doesn’t help if you simply want to take the raw video off the camera and send it to someone who ...

Easy to Use & Edit, annoying mouse click noises

Anonymous, Newegg
14 April 2008
  • Summary: Please, Pure Digital, allow us to disable the annoying "click" mouse button noise!
  • Pros: Low cost, easy to use; most friendly to upload on YouTube, AOL, etc. Uses AA Batteries (only a benefit if you use rechargeables).
  • Cons: Uses AA batteries bad for environment if you do not use rechargeables. Very annoying "click" noise with every click of your mouse cannot disable!; no control over software (it's built in).
