Summary: This was okay for the kiddies to mess around with and record silly videos. The low resolution is a limiting factor along with the camera lens. It has an SD card slot so you increase the storage. The batteries don't last very long...
Summary: I purchased this two years ago because my digital camera was stolen. I enjoy the ease of use and the simplicity of uploading my pics on my laptop. I always lose SD cards so having the built in connector is awesome.
Summary: this choice is very good for users wanting a simple, compact, sturdy camera for "simple, reasonable" results when more expensive, heavy, complicated equipment, etc., might be inconvenient. i've purchased three of these so far...and the price has increased with each repeat--can't say why, etc.
Summary: had a $25 coupon from amazon and it was on sale so thing camera cost me about $15.00. It was a gift for my 8 year old and he still has it and he is going on 10. He loves it and makes little lego shorts for himself. Fun and a great learning gift that helps kids stay creative.
Please buy any other mini cam but one of these! If you must put nothing vital on it!

Summary: I thought I should write about my experience tonight with my RCA mini cam which I bought last spring. At the time I found it delightful and fun to use. I never imagined that with one push of a button, I could do something so awful as to make me cry.
Summary: We got this camera for our 10 year old son so he can record his skateboarding and post it to YouTube and other web sites and it's GREAT! It's very easy for him to use and the size is perfect. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for ease of use.
Summary: It is both easy to use and very compact, so easy a child could operate. Besides being great for video it takes pretty nice still photos. With the fold out display monitor you can easily take pictures of yourself and a friend without being behind the camera.
Summary: My wife decided to get one of these just before our daughter was born. As most will tell you, the video is not perfect. However, like the commercial says, having it in your pocket to capture at a moments notice is priceless. I have a miniDV camera as well.
