Summary: This camera is great for someone who needs to fit their camera in a small place such as a pocket or purse. It is so small that I kept it in my purse at all times. In daylight the pictures turn out wonderful! Sometimes at night you need to make sure you are at a close enough distance that the flash can brighten up background. This camera is great for taking videos while on vacation. Who wants to carry around a camcorder these days?!?
Summary: The Panasonic D-snap, model SV-AV50, is a great product. The D-snap can be used for many different tasks. It is a digital camera, camcorder, mp3 player, and voice recorder. The D-snap is small and portable. The D-snap is so small that it can fit into your pocket easily. The Panasonic D-snap is easy to recharge the batteries. The D-snap has a cradle included. Once the D-snap is connected to the cradle, many things can be done.
Summary: This is a very cool gadget, but it has a very specific target audience - people who need a camera and a Dictaphone with them at all times. If that's not you, consider a Palm Zire 71, or maybe a camera phone. Unlike many other combination devices, the D-Snap 50 doesn't try to do too much, just a few things fairly well.
Summary: I got this for my birthday a while ago, and is my first of a couple of digital cameras that i like to use regularly. most other cameras only take aroung 8 to 15 mins of video with a high memory card but this one takes alot more. with a 512 mg SD card you can take over 1 hour of video and hundreds of pictures on high resolution. the "mp3 player" is a little low rate but its ok.
Summary: GOOD / PROS -- - Compact and small - Good quality screen - A neat gadget - Plays and records sound clearly BAD / CONS -- - Complicated - Buttons are TOO small - Hard to focus -- takes bad still pictures
Summary: The trouble with most combination devices is that they try to do too much, and thus end up doing lots of things poorly. With the D-Snap 50, Panasonic has avoided this all too common design flaw... mostly. The D-Snap 50 is an excellent gadget for professionals on the go, combining a two megapixel video camera, a digital voice recorder, and an MP3 player all into a package smaller and lighter than a pack of cigarettes.
