Excerpt: i bought this product about 5 years ago ,after about six months the flip screen just broke and tried everything to get it going but it was no good ,i still have it and it works without the screen but the whole point of the digital camera is so you cn see what you have recorded ,but i am not the only one that had problems with this brand of camcorder,i have looked everywhere for a replacment as i have lots of film on tapes that i would like to see again but even on ebay...
Pros: its small and compact
Cons: the flip screen broke after 6 months and its too light and flimsy
Excerpt: The VP-D351 offers unsophisticated 'point and shoot' functionality at a relatively low cost, which is absolutely fine for family outings, or mildly hazardous environments and where loss of the camcorder wouldn't be an entire disaster. It is no longer a 'current model' - and good examples can be found on the likes of Ebay for about £50. My may reckoning, this puts it into the 'commodity camcorder' bracket.
Pros: Lightweight, inexpensive, plenty of spares on Ebay
Excerpt: The VP-D351 is a basic no-frills camcorder of lightweight construction, read 'plasticy' In it's favour it uses inexpensive mini-DV tapes, which I consider to be preferable to DVD media, but connectivity is limited to Firewire (not all computers support this) and it doesn't come with a remote a remote control.
Excerpt: I dont know what the other guy is talking about - the camcorder is firewire, so it just connects to any computer. Its DV tape, so it captures at realtime (the same as any other dv camera in the world), it has a great LCD screen, which for the price its at is pretty amazing (the sceen actually picks up the depth of colour I need in my shot) and the one thing they did get right is that it is really really simple to use.
Excerpt: This camcorder, is a poor buy, as most features are satisfactory to poor! If you are interested in purchasing, I would deffinetly reconsider, as you would be paying good money for a useless product. Also, its a lot of trouble trying to hook it up to the computer, as the downloading time is endless, and the software, that comes with it is quite inadequit. The casing of the camera, is quite breakable, and the lcd screen does break very easilly.
Excerpt: This Handy Little camera is a great start for any Beginner to the media World. It light weight material makes it easy to move and operatite the camera has some clever trick including night vision,diril effects, and fade. It record on a normal MINI dv tape and You Can watch your movies on the tv By plugging it into a av socket.
