Summary: Length:: 1:32 Mins I bought the Orange refurbished Playtouch for $30, and it came with the cables, manual, cloth pouch, just like when sold new, except now in a battered up retail box. Photos and videos are good, provided taken in sunny or bright places. The attached test video shows zoom at 2x is okay, but to the max would be slightly fuzzy. Such pocket cams using digital zoom will never be as sharp as optical zooms using lens that project out when zooming.
Summary: It shoots quality HD video for so cheap. Great for trying to make cheap, simple, but good quality talking head videos in a little home studio. But the touch screen will drive you nuts. Mine is all messed up and won't click in certain areas. I bought the remote but havn't really spent the time to figure out how to use it. So that hasn't worked for me either. After getting an iPhone I don't even know where the playtouch is anymore.
Summary: I love the quality of the video. It is easy to use. When I pan out to get a wider view it doesn't go far at all. I was really dissappointed with the view range. Other than that I am fully satisfied!!
Excerpt: Cheaply made, and even set at a higher HD setting it does not match the quality and ease of my old Flip video. The camera body itself is also cheaply made and feels fragile to the touch. I am being very careful with this as I plug it into the computer, the attachment feels like it may break and it's brand new....simply not high quality. I am a Realtor who uses the video constantly and always carries one with me. The quality of this makes my nervous.
Pros: Good Image Stabilization
Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light, Poor Sound
Excerpt: This camera is everything that I was dreaming about. You can plug it into the wall when you are low on battery. You can plug in a microphone and have fabulous audio. You can record in four different video formats (this is great considering that most videos are uploaded to the internet.<br /><br />The bad part is that the videos are not of great quality. <br /><br />I would gladly pay twice as much to have all this functionality and better video quality.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Sound
Great Interface But Very Poor Quality Still Pictures With OK videos
25 December 2011
Summary: I know this is not an expensive video camera but I was hoping the still pictures would be at least as good as my 6 year old Kodak camera. The still pictures are terrible-almost as bad as the pictures from the old flip cellphones. I do like the interface-easy to use. The video is pretty good but only if you use the highest quality setting which uses a lot more memory.
