Summary: I bought this camera for my husband as a birthday gift. He has every trail cam you can think of for hunting so I thought it would be cool to see what he is looking at while he is hunting. Do not try and use this camera under low light it will not focus or be able to show images it stays dark. I didnt know you needed a mini SD card to take video longer than a min or so. I went out and purchased the card.
Summary: i received this camera and it was broke. It did not work. trying to get an exchange or a response from Midland or Sharp Gear was impossible! they pawned me off on others. Neither backed this product!
Summary: I bought this Midland XTC on sale from another site about a month ago for my husband to use while he's out hunting. He also takes it out while he's fishing and has tried it while he was practice shooting with his bow. As with many smaller more cost effective camcorders, the better your lighting is when filming, the better. However the most distinctive feature you'll find on your videos is they have a sort of fishbowl look to them.
Summary: I picked this camera up on a 3rd party clearance site but I felt like writing a review for other folks. This is an okay camera. It's cheap, it's simple, it records okay. Detail is kind of sketchy at 100% video size, and really falls apart at 200%. Where it excels though for me is the motion: it records motion very smoothly. It's a 145 degree fisheye lens, which sucks somewhat, but I got this for about half of what Amazon is asking and I'm happy with the price.
Summary: I'm not a hunter, nor do I really have a burning desire to capture video doing anything terribly serious. I bought this camera to mount on the handlebar of my ATV. It could not be easier to use. Using the included mount, it took about 10 seconds to install. I was actually surprised that the video wasn't completely shaky. No, it isn't an HD recorder, but the image quality was quite good.
