Summary: I feel like I'm in zoom all the time. when you zoom, everything is so grainy. For an HD camera, it doesn't look very HD once you import it so I wonder if this is one of the HD conversion products instead of the true HD cameras.
Summary: The zoom is limited the pictures unless still never came out right. This is one of those items I wish I went out and spent the extra money on to buy the next best thing. I mean it has everything wrapped up in one package for you but they didn't put enough into each part of that package. So I can not recommend this item to many people. I mean maybe if you are tight on money or you film things that don't move or you like taking pictures of plants.
Summary: Camera is perfect for my needs...small & compact....fits in my camera bag with my other gear & camera...video quality is excellent...however, AA lithium batteries don't seem to work with camera & regular AA's don't last very long.
Summary: I bought this camera on Gold Box deal for $100 and for that price it is amazing. It is a great cheap camera that works nicely with outdoor well lit areas. In darker area where the lighting isn't prominent, the objects are blacked out and grain. If there is any light behind what you are looking at, i.e. window or lamp, forget it, nothing but a sillouette.
A very user friendly camara and great for general family use. A great value

Summary: Great little camera. Picture quality is great, some degrading when using zoom and we found out mic is defiantly not for recording outdoor concerts up close. The fact that AA lithium ion batteries can be used as back up is a great option. two 16gb cards and you have 8hrs of hd video recording. I have two of these and they work great.
Summary: People, please use a better SD card if you want a better video. plug one out of your old digital camera probably won't do the trick for you. Look at the rating on your card, for HD video, you need a class 6 or better (class 10). It is not that much more expensive but you will get a better video.
Summary: para ser un producto HP, la calidad del video es muy pobre, ademas el software que trae no reproduce los videos, y en otros reproductores se ven cuadro por cuadro y muy pixelado. esperaba un mejor producto.
Summary: I purchased this item for a friend. He was looking into buying a camera, and when he saw the description on this he opted for this one. We payed only $99.99 for it, and it is a great purchase for the price. It has great memeory capacity, and the alternate battery option is a plus. Aditionaly, the size is great. On the down side, the flash for still images is not very bright. The video is of good quality, but a more expensive camera would probably have better resolution.
Summary: I used this camcorder for the first time yesterday. It's a great size. At around 4 inches, it can almost fit in your pocket. Making it convenient to story, carry and hold. I did expect more from a camcorder that is marketed as a 1080p recording device. The LCD image was grainy and slightly out of focus. My assumption was that the final product would look much better when hooked up to a better monitor. Hooked up to my 1080p LED TV, the video was only slightly improved.
