Summary: I purchased this camcorder right before the birth of my son. The main purpose was to be able to film him and made DVDs for grandma. The files transfer easily to the pc. However no software that I can find will recognize the format; the only solution that I can find is to play it in real time into a DVD recorder that will burn the dvd directly. Not the most time effective solution. I understand if you want up load 10 minute videos to Utube etc it is really easy to do.
Summary: It is a pretty good camera for the price. I haven't had any problems with it so far. It isnt great quality but what do you expect from a cheaper camera? If you want high quality, you are gonna have to spend more cash. But this is really nice for family time and traveling. It is small and very easy to use.
Summary: Length:: 0:53 Mins Here is a video I shot from the rear deck of my Spec Miata using an IO port racing mount with poly bushings. Settings were sport mode with anti shake turned on. I seem to get a better quality picture with anti-shake turned off. It would be awesome if I could buy a remote for this camera, it's hard to control it when I'm belted in. Instead I have been turning the camera on in paddock and just clipping out the portions of the video of me sitting on grid.

Summary: I got a great deal on this camera with a Gold Box offer. I originally was looking at those one-button video cams before I found this deal. With the 100 clams price and all the features this camera has, it was a no-brainer to pick this one. The ergonomic angled lens really makes it comfortable to shoot a lot of video. The SDHC card format is perfect for my laptop and the editing software right in the camera is so convenient and saves time.
Summary: This review is from my daugher after I bought the camera for her birthday. "This is a very good camera for loading things on Youtube. It does have its faults like battery life and makes little noises when filming. The built in software didn't work with my computer but other than that I love the camera. It is the perfect size. I can take it with me anywhere. I also like that I can record in seconds. I never miss a moment anymore.
Summary: I don't think a person will find a better camera at this price.In fact, the picture quality is better than cameras costing a lot more.Not going to comment on features/specificatios, (YOU should already know what YOU'RE buying).THAT being said, this is a "Can't Go Wrong Purchase" !
Summary: Not being a high tech kind of person, I was a little nervous buying this item. Not to worry. The ergonomic design of this camcorder appealed to me as well as its ease of use. Took it on vacation and loved it. Able to record through the car window, zoom in for closer shots. The picture quality is quite good. I'm still learning its many features. With its handy size I took it everywhere with me. My husband and I had a ball with this camcorder.
Summary: I applied for a grant on [...] for my kids at school to learn how to use a camcorder so I had little options when choosing a camcorder. If I could return this I would, but it's not worth the hassle. Here's are my gripes. 1.The lens angle is weird 2.It's too small for any adult hands (I have tiny hands and my ring finger is a size 5) 3.The focus is terrible 4.The buttons are not labeled, (only the play button is obvious) 5.No light source 6.No easy way to delete clips...
