Summary: Overall I am most pleased with this little gem and pleasantly surprised at the quality of the video. The audio is something of another story, since it is often lacking in quality. I wish the light were more useful for darker situations.
Summary: When you think about the price and the size of the camcorder you cant help but to think" for the price this is a decent lil camcorder". Its easy to use and is very light weight. I would say if you wanna do anything half way serious with your camcorder spend the extra 60 or 80 bucks on something nicer.
Summary: Did my research, and this offered a lot of bang for $80. full 1080p digital recording, great pistol style form factor that is incredibly portable. Great for college kids looking to have something handy to post on youtube or facebook. Also, decent camera. Definitely suffices for posting a few pictures on facebook. If you are looking for a dedicated camera, however, you might want to buy a separate camera.
Summary: I bought this product for the holidays, so my review is very late. I will say that this video recorder is excellent and very easy to operate. The quality it captures is stunning and everyone was impressed when it was plugged into the TV. This is a great buy.
Summary: it doesn't ship with a media card. They say it is optional, but the onboard memory will only hold 2 minutes of video. So, if you are going to buy it be sure to get an SD card - Thye say at least class 4, I got a class 10 and it works great.
Summary: this camera is great as far as quality of the product itself as well as the images produced by it. But you will definetly need a memory card/ SD card in order to do any valid recording otherwise you only get 2 minuets total.
Summary: Good: Sleek Look, light weight, nice carry pouch. Bad: Horrible Stabilization. Really Shaky. No automatic close view (macro) or wide view. You have to manually switch the mode. Blurry video when moving left or right, up or down. It actually makes you want to vomit at playback. Terrible microphone pick up. Can't hear well. Do not buy. I'm returning it today...
