Summary: Overall - a good camcorder: I like the convenience & the extremely easy-to-see/use operational buttons. The biggest negative (as many other reviewers have also indicated)is the awkward configuration of its USB port.
"Sticky" buttons, but video quality & easy use is great!

Summary: Great little video camera for those who aren't 'tech' savvy! My dad loves looking at 'memories' via video or photo documentation, but has had to rely on others to do so for years due to his fear of technology. This little unit is SO simple that even he is excited to use it! The buttons are wonderfully big and distinct enough for not-so-agile fingers.
Great for kids, but for a similar price you can get much better quality pictures & videos with a low-end digital camera

Summary: This is a great camera for kids because it is so easy to hold and use. I love how everything is included (2GB memory card, lens cover, carrying case). However, the picture and video quality is worse than a cell phone (grainy, washed out). Instead, for a similar price (less than 100 dollars) you can get a Canon PowerShot A480 or Nikon Coolpix L20 that takes excellent pictures *and* video.
Summary: I like it because of it's small covient size and the features available on it. I chose to buy it because I had prevoiusly owned another RCA Camera/Camcorder and I loved it. It was missing so I had to replace it with another one.
Summary: The delivery was very good. When I used it I found that it was very easy to use and also like the way of downloading of pictures. Also like the length of time i.e. 4 hrs. and that I can increase this time also. I had an RCA little world but find this better.
Summary: Length:: 5:26 Mins When I first came across this item, it was because I was searching for a practical means of quickly capturing video for web upload that did not involve much computer processing or the constant purchase of film/miniDV cassettes and the like. So, I was intrigued by the RCA "Traveler" Small Wonder's supposedly's point-and-shoot-and-upload capabilities. Well, upon receiving this machine, I was quickly disappointed!

Summary: Love the camera -- compact, easy to use, takes great shots. HOWEVER, beware Amazon's offer to buy an SD mini-card with this camera. It doesn't use a mini-card; it uses a regular SD card. I didn't read the fine print and got stuck with a useless $20 mini-card. Now what? Sell it on eBay? Still, the camera is great. We're having good fun with it. Sturdy little devil, too -- it's already been dropped a couple of times to no ill effect.
Summary: I received this and immediately started to click and take video of everything in sight! It was so easy to use, but then when I tried to upload the photos my PC was giving me an error message. After talking to RCA, trying to upload new software-twice, sent the machine back because RCA claimed that it was defective, received yet another 'Traveler' (after 6 weeks of waiting) and guess what?! It had the same problem.
Summary: "A horse is a horse, of course, of course" is a line from the old "Mr. Ed" TV show. It came to mind because that describes this camera. It works like a horse, is rugged (it's been dropped with no ill effects), looks decent (a tinnie bit large, but not unreasonably so), does good quality work, and is easy to use. The video quality is great in Hi-Res and more than adequate for web quality.
Summary: Never tried a Flip, so I do not know how they compare, but this little camera is easy to use, seems sturdy but is still light weight, and has had no problems in the initial three or so weeks of use that this one has had. I would not hesitate to recommend it to someone looking for a convenient, pocket-sized camcorder.
