A Fair Camcorder

venom_95c, Ebay
22 May 2012
  • Summary: This is a ok camcorder...I can't say its all bad, but i can't say its all good either. videos are fairly decent in good lighting but still needs improvement, but videos are grainy in lower light...picture quality is bad in good and bad lighting because its only vga quality. Mic quality is pretty good, i really like the form factor its a nice looking camera...battery life is not all that bad just be sure to buy the best..

Difficult to Use

S. Schvartz "samiam", Amazon
15 November 2011
  • Summary: Unfortunately for me, this product proved to be a little to difficult to use. I eventually figured it out, but it took some time - user friendly not so much! When I did figure out everything (that I needed) it worked beautifully for the small short clips that I wanted. Unfortunately the battery stopped holding charge and I had to replace it after less than two months. I would probably go with another option if I was buying again.

Well worth the money

Garry C, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Best used outdoors in good lighting. Microphone is very sensitive. Suggest using rechargeable batteries. The 180 degree rotating viewer LCD is a great feature. The three included software packages are probably worth the price of the camera. Still pics are okay for printing small snapshots. Outdoor video quality is surprizingly good considering the price of the camera, but forget using the digital zoom.
  • Pros: Compact easy to carry, Easy To Use
  • Cons: LCD dim in bright sun

Jazz DV152 VGA Digital Camera -- Terrible picture

Gloria from Victoria, Amazon
28 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera as an alternative to the Flip Ultra camera. This camera takes terrible pics and video indoors unless you're directly standing under a bright sunlit window. Outside it is not much better. Half the time - even with new batteries, you have to push the power button on 3-5 times to get it to come on. You have to use the software disk that comes with the camera to upload to Youtube and then half the time it doesn't work.

Brilliant camera, BUT...

ac, Amazon
28 October 2009
  • Summary: Add or subtract another star depending on what you wanna use this camera for. This camera is PRETTY MUCH all I personally would ever need. It's light, can be hidden well, durable (I've dropped it a few times and it works fine), and it looks/sounds great, especially in natural lighting. I've shot two feature-length movies with this camera, and I edit all the footage on the camera using VirtualDub, and I get nothing but compliments about the way my pictures look and sound.
