Summary: I was very excited to get a product that would take some abuse. So far so good but buyers beware. even after researching as much as I thought I should, no where was there any indication that the camcorder used anything other than a SD memory card.
Summary: Very disappointed after all the great reviews led me to buy this. The video works great at 720. Turn up the resolution to full HD (1080) and the playback quality is plagued with clipping and jitter, basically it's unwatchable unless you don't have any movement in the field of vision.
Summary: . I bought this from BEST BUY, and had my wife record a few songs from my band's LIVE show... THE AUDIO IS NOT IN SYNC' WITH THE VIDEO. It is slightly LATE. In a fast punk rock beat, it's about an 8th note late... TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE FOR MY PREFERENCES. I'm returning the unit ASAP.
Summary: I bought this little guy for my friend's wedding present and I must say that I have never seen such good video in a small package! The videos of the honeymoon were in fantastic HD! You could see every detail and all the vivid colors, even in low lighting for all the bedroom videos!
Summary: cons: - You will need a usb extencion or plugged into a usb hub. - Not sure how the other camcorders work but the bitrate is just too high, 16.1mbits on full hd. - Not that great at night pros: - only about 100 usd for a good cam, 5 stars then
Summary: So far this camera has been fine, I can't believe for the price it didn't at least come with a small memory card. Transferring pictures to a computer works better with a USB Patch cord instead of plugging it into a usb port directly.
Summary: I got this camcorder because while I was researching to replace my flip touch HD (or something like that) and saw that this one was waterproof up to 10 ft (3m) and shock resistant up to 6.5 ft (2m) and liked that it had 1080p (or full HD) and the rugged design.
Summary: I received this camcorder as a mothers day gift and absolutely love it! It is small and light, so it goes with me everywhere. I have used it both in the sunlight (recording my daughters soccer game) and in the dark (recording a graduation ceremony show).
Summary: Not a good solution if you want to record longer than 16 minutes. I have found that when continuously recording that this device creates a new file every 16 minutes( if you record for 40 minutes you will get 2 files 16 minutes in duration and 1 file 8 minutes in duration etc.).
