Good camcorder for holidays and traveling.

  • Summary: I didn't use silver TA1 :) I use red TA1. It's very simple camcorder. One button - one action. Picture quality isn't very good, but it's the best for this camera format and its price. Rolling shutter could be less. View angle isn't wide, not good for inside using, but it has very right geometry and it's near human eyes view angle. It needs a charger, computer USB is very long charging device. I guess additional battery is necessary.

Great camera in good light

  • Summary: As long as you have good lighting, this little camcorder will shoot good video and stills. I normally shoot with a DSLR, so I am very critical when it come to quality. I bought this to use with iMovie on a Mac, and it is perfectly compatible. I shoot iFrame (960x540) because that is the preferred (native) iMovie format, so I can edit without any transcoding. iFrame is exactly 1/4 of full HD, so it scales very well. The iFrame movies play very well on my 40" HDTV.

  • Summary: I'm Satisfied Purchasing This Product. With Low Lights! Recordings Are A Little Bit Poor Quality Of Videos And 60 FPS Would Be Great On This Camcorder And Also I Think, WebCam Is Not Neccesary So Much.

Great Video Cam for the money!

  • Summary: I bought this to record videos for my business, then upload them to websites. It makes great quality videos in a variety of formats. For the money this is a real winner. If it could have one other thing it would be a remote control.

Amazingly sharp, but cheaply made.

E.Barroso, Amazon
1 May 2011
  • Summary: I have owned many of the small camcorders, Flip, Vido, Camileo, Kodak zi8 and now this. I must say it is excellent, specially outside, and the stills are very sharp and detailed. I give it a 4 stars because it is so cheaply made. The USB is cumbersome, cheap plastic. With a quality like the Flip or Kodak it would be a 5 star. Update: 5/13 the camera has died. Will not charge. Tried to connect to a pc, a wall, to no avail. So I bought a wall charger and an extra battery.

Great product! Definitely recommend if you are a coach & review techniq

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder to make sure I had a MAC compatible unity. It records high quality footage - it is light and easy to use. The picture does get grainy on tight zoom. It works great and due to its MAC compatibility it is exactly what I was looking for.
