Image sensor requires a TON of light

Chad W. Thompson, Amazon
26 March 2013
  • Summary: The image sensor in this camera does not perform well indoors. The sensor requires TONS of light to provide a good quality image. If someone were purchasing this camera to use outdoors only (on a sunny day) I may recommend it because the price is so low; but it is impossible to take good video...

Bad power situation

usonia, Amazon
19 March 2013
  • Summary: I was hoping to be able to plug this into the wall and record hours of video to an HD chip. But I found out that the USB power only partially works. It provides a very limited menu with two options, none of which included recording.

Don't waste the money

Norma Prenty, Amazon
27 February 2013
  • Summary: The Jazz HDV series camcorders truly are terrible products. Fuzzy video, poor sound and horrible battery life (my lightsaber uses the same batteries and lasts four times longer). Save your money, don't buy this useless piece of rubbish.

What, I can't give zero stars?

Daryl J. Healey, Amazon
2 February 2013
  • Summary: This is quite definitely the worse product I have ever bought, ever, Thinking I was going to be able to at least shoot a decent video with webcam quality, I was very disappointed - the quality was even lower than my low expectations! Avoid, even if offered for free.

Very disappointed!

Angie Young, Amazon
1 February 2013
  • Summary: Poor video quality indoors. Has to have a lot of light. When played back, every time I zoomed it make a annoying noise. Thought the picture quality would look better on my HD t.v. NOPE! It had very poor quality! Even the 8X zoom was terrible! It just blew up the picture and the pixels looked bad.

What. A. Piece. Of. Garbage.

MalteseFalcn, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: Quality was so poor as to render this product unusable. Not even worthwhile as a child's toy. Redefines "You get what you pay for".
