Summary: I got this Camcorder to record family moments with. I want my grandson to be able to look back and enjoy them. The video is a bit graine. For the money spent it is an ok machine. I like that it easily fits into a pocket or purse without all the bulk of a camera.
Summary: Found this little gem @ Amazon for a real deal. Purchased with the intention of using it for assisting in training my horse. I have used it for so much more. Great for little videos @ the beach recently - waterproof!! The camera is really small so I don't recommend it for serious video recording. It's perfect for just fun use! It is OK for the initial purpose intended.
Good, rugged, easy-to-use with great pic quality! Great starter/for kids.

Summary: Was looking for a 'rugged' camera for 7/8 year old that was easy to use. This fit the bill to a 'T'! Very easy menu with only a couple buttons. Of course he forgets to turn it off so the battery drains. The image is fine for him. I prob. wouldn't buy this for myself but it is super-easy to use and he can drop it on the floor and it stands up to the abuse.
Summary: love this little camcorder, it's very light easy to carry. it is not the best for quality but for busy mom and traveling and you want to capture everything without being bulky this one is one them.
Summary: I got this mini video camera 6 months or so ago and everything worked OK, except I couldn't figure out how to download the vids through the USB port. When I plugged it in it charged fine, and seemed to be connecting, but then ... no way to see the files. I could always pull the memory chip out and use a card reader, so it was just a minor annoyance. I did some searching for a solution - nothing. Downloaded the software - didn't help.
Summary: I bought this for our 9-year-old son to use underwater. Nice little camcorder. Of course, it's not perfect but for its price this camcorder is better than what I expected. We like it because it is: 1)Compact - the size of a credit card 2)light weight - can go into a shirt pocket 3)Easy to use - just a few buttons 4)No external batteries required - rechargeable battery life is good 5)Waterproof - tested 6)Robust - we dropped it a few times on a tiled floor and it's still...
