I like this camera

rouster58, Ebay

  • Summary: I like this camera, easy to use and very light, video is crisp when played back and audio is good. The digital stills are 7 second clips that give good detail during playback. Remote is handy to get yourself in the action.

A disposable camera...

Luis Martino A "cygnus", Amazon
20 April 2011
  • Summary: This is a disposable camera. After having it for more than a year, I can say the following: a) Autofocus is bad. It tends to lose the focus of the subject very easily. You can control the focus manually, but that is a hassle. Every time the camera loses focus, the quickest way to restore it is to zoom a little, then pan out. b) Batery life was dreadful. When new, the battery allows for more than 70 minutes of shooting.

Do not buy this if you want to connect to a PC

  • Summary: Like other DV camcorders, this can only connect using a 1394 port. Even if your PC has one (most don't), you need a add-on video capture card. And even if you have that (and get it to work) you have about a 50/50 chance of this working. Good little camera if you only intend to watch your movies on a TV. Not worth the head aches of trying to get it on a PC. Many have tried, few have succeeded.

Decent for what it is

Verc, Amazon
19 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera independently for about $60. It's not all that bad for an older camcorder. The picture is decent. It's a good camera to have around for random things, nothing on a professional level though. I wouldn't value it at more than $100 max for it.

Pretty good camera

Delhia Quintanilla "R.Q. MovieMan", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a pretty good camera for planning out shots for an independent film. However, I wouldn't recommend it for youtube or home videography use because the image is very dark and grainy. Like I said, the only real use for this low quality camera is planning out shots that will be filmed with a much better camera later on.

Works Well for the Price

Amy Lynn, Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: This Samsung Camcorder is a good option for someone who wants to get something simple and easy to use that does the job and isn't very expensive. The picture quality is good. For beginners, it is probably easier to use than some other cameras out there but you still need to have a little finesse to figure it out. There aren't many buttons and it's not too involved yet you have to push the button a certain way to forward and rewind.

It Works on a MAC

Joy A., Amazon
14 May 2010
  • Summary: I just bought this camera and it works on my MacBook. You need a firewire cable to import your movie into iMovie 06 and everything is fine. For the money it is OK. I do stop action animation so that is why I bought it. (I have not tried it yet in iMovie 08, so I don't know if it imports into that.) You can download iMovie 06 for free if you have iMovie 08 from the Apple site.
