Summary: Pretty nice little camera/camcorder for the money. But a few notes: The refurbished models do NOT come with the software disc. It's no big deal really. But the videos are recorded in the .MOV format, so you will need software to edit that, or convert it to a format you can edit. (Plenty of freeware out there that will do the job.) Contrary to the specs, there is no optical zoom. The camera does record sound pretty well. Playback on the camera is very quiet, however.
Summary: My parents always took my digital camera/camcorder on their trips which I didn't mind but they wanted their own. I bought it as a gift and they haven't opened it yet but they seemed excited about...that's all that matters right!!?? Well hopefully it functions great and I can come back and add more. I do know it's compact which is what it's all about these days...SIZE DOES MATTER!
Summary: I bought this camera about a month ago...already the zoom button has broken off and fallen inside the camera, and the place where the tripod attaches is stripped. I contacted Polaroid and they read me the warranty which covers nothing on the outside of the camera. I would give it 0 stars if I could. I've bought lots of cameras in the past, at half the cost, that lasted at least a year. I understand you get what you pay for, but come on!
Summary: It's a pretty good cam for the cost. I only had the cam for a few days, however I went different places to test the video quality of the cam. I was pleasantly surprised at the video quality. If you are not under Illusions this cam will produce a 500 dollar cam quality you should like the Polaroid. One problem I found with the Polaroid, my Mac didn't recognize it, so I had to take the SD card from the cam and insert it in my Mac.
Summary: This Polaroid digital camcorder is exactly what I was searching for. It is compact and yet has a large, easy to view screen. The battery holds a very strong charge and the detail in the video is very, very clear. For the price, it is an excellent bargain. You will have to purchase an SD card which is required (and for some reason) does not come with the camera. The only thing about it that I think could be improved is the sound quality.
Summary: Esta es cámara es liviana y cómoda de usar, la calidad de la filmación con luz natural es muy buena y fluida, inclusive en el interior si llega la luz natural, cuando se graba con poca luz la filmación resulta granulada y con rayas. La fotos son aceptables pero el único inconveniente es que el flash tarda un momento en cargarse, su manual no explica mucho me costo bastante encontrar como entrar en los menús de configuración.
Summary: First off, the product description states both that it has an integrated usb hook-up, *and* that it comes with a usb cable. It does come with the cable-there is no built in usb connector. The product name listed (DVG-720) is for the 720p camera-NOT a 1080p camera. The indoor quality of the video is not so great. It's very grainy, colors show up super-saturated unless you have it on the Hard Contrast setting, and video playback on a tv is atrocious.
