it's not a piece of garbage, just retarded and intelli" stuido is dumb.

Kid Icarus "The Lad from Hades", Amazon
9 July 2011
  • Summary: first off, how do you come up with a design that places the lense upwards. being "originally pattened" or just Stupid. Why not make it a normal cam corder that you can point at something and know it is the target without looking at the veiw screen? Second, and I just gotta say this now. INTELL STUDIO IS RETARDED!!! you cannot load from a memory SD card, it just converts everything to .spl or some wierd unreadable file.

I don't find the image quality good at all

Amazon
19 December 2010
  • Summary: If Poetmaster found the image quality "clear and crisp" then I might've gotten a defective camera. Even at the finest setting, the image quality was blurry and desaturated. It lacked contrast even outside. Sure, the video on the LCD panel looked great but not so on the monitor. In auto focus mode, it had a hard time focusing when you were walking around SLOWLY. In "Web Fine" mode, the playback was suffering from severe tearing (on a quad core/3GHz/4G ram PC).

There are better choices for this price point

Arnab Bhaduri, Amazon
18 March 2010
  • Summary: This looks more like a "real" camcorder than the Flip / Creative devices, and I had some hopes that the video quality would be good. That turned out not to be the case. The build quality is certainly good. The operating controls felt nice and usable, the screen flipped out nicely, and the camera felt comfortable to carry around. Battery life seems pretty good. The device feels mechanically well designed. The video quality was disappointing.

not a good camera for bands

John Carbone, Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera for the sole purpose of taping my band and putting videos of it on youtube, Much to my dismay, during the gig whenever the guitarist or bassist would move slightly one way or the other, the entire picture would lose focus and be blurry for several seconds. I ended up with a lot of useless footage by the end of the night. The next day tech support told me that the only way to avoid a blur screen was to shoot in a well lit area.

Good size, nice angled design, but not a lot of features

WholesomeRenegade "WholesomeRenegade", Amazon
23 December 2009
  • Summary: There is no night vision on this camera, and it did not come with any starter memory cards so I could not use it right away. I also don't like the fact that you cannot adjust the settings for low light, bright light, etc. I did like the angled lens so that you don't wear out your wrist holding it. The buttons are very cheap feeling and you have to press them pretty hard to change your settings, which makes the camera move.

Disappointing quality

ChrisL, Amazon
24 September 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera to have my wedding filmed, and wish I hadn't. When I looked at the footage the quality was dreadful. The images had lots of lines all over them and it was so jerky it's barely watchable (although the sound quality is fairly good). I wish I'd known this before but unfortunately the wedding was the first time we'd used it.

Squeal

R. Hynes "Bert", Amazon
9 March 2010
  • Summary: I like all the features on this camcorder except the sound. There is a noticeable squeal coming from the zoom and autofocus motors, enough to drive me round the bend! Anyone else heard this?

Beware: Mac Unfriendly

Joe Mendonca "Joe Journeys", Amazon
5 September 2009
  • Summary: Based on an experience of an ex-owner of this camera found it small, compact and some cool features like time lapse, however it has built in software that compresses the movie from the wide screen. On a Apple Mac it views the files as compressed and squeezed with black bars on both sides, this is due to the software of the camera being built into the unit, so for PC users this may work well (since additional software needs to be installed)... but NOT MAC FRIENDLY!
