Highly compressed video, decent lowlight, good camera for the price...

timecodemechanics, Ebay
28 January 2014
  • Summary: I got this camera and ordered a few. They're a great value, especially when you can get them refurbished. My only issues are the video is highly compressed. But the in daylight and well lit places the video is really good. It gets usable video in lowlight, but it's not a DSLR.

Great value for the money if you don't need precision close-ups or flash

  • Summary: This camcorder is a great value for the money for being fully high def with image stabilization and other nice features, and for having a tripod mount unlike most other models of this type. The only downside to a dirt cheap model like this compared to more expensive ones is the inability to take close ups and lack of a camera flash.

Below $60 I would pick it up, anything more I would pass for the higher end

  • Summary: The Still is really weak, but what do you expect from such a small package. While the video is really impressive for such a small sized pocket cam. With a price of around $50 its worth the buy.

Works well

  • Summary: I bought this after my beloved Flip camera died. It is a pretty good replacement. It's nice and compact so I can carry it around wherever I go. The only improvement that could be made is the dating of the videos. When I upload the videos to my computer, each one is dated with the date of the file transfer, not with the date it was actually taken.

Good small camera

  • Summary: Very good little camera, handy and easy to use. It stopped working though demanding memory card reformatting in the most unconvinient time. Picture quality is good.

Very good, very tiny camera

Kwev "Kwev", Amazon

  • Summary: Very pleased with this camera. The image stabilisation feature works well - get less wobbly footage as a result. It really is tiny and incredibly light - a good and bad thing: no weight or bulk to lug around, but so light that holding it still is a bit challenging, and so small that the onboard screen is really too small for watching playback.

Like it-don't love it!

  • Summary: This gadget is a nice size for a pocket. It is simple to use and the picture is very clear/sound good, when attached to TV. When recording, I don't like the light which comes on both front and back as I use it mainly to film my grandchild and as soon as he sees the light. he just wants to grab camera. The thing that stops me giving it 5 stars is the tiny recording/playback screen-no use for showing what you've recorded to friends.

Good for kids

  • Summary: I bought three of these cameras to help teach basic filmmaking to a group of 14 and 15 year olds at weekly after school sessions. I'm something of a camera snob myself and I own a Canon C100 camcorder which I operate for my day job, so I was a little reluctant to purchase this camera but it was the only thing cheap enough for purpose! I'd have to say they did a pretty good job - for starters the camera is absolutely, categorically idiot proof.
