Just what i wanted

  • Summary: The Camera is great,it took a lot of looking to find the disc size. It is also a lot of reading to use the camera. I will be just fine, once my grand child uses it and then shows me what to do.

Not too bad

R. Bethea, Amazon

  • Summary: Ive never owned a camcorder before I purchased this one so I was excited when I had bought it right before my baby shower in '07. I thought that I would be able to record my baby shower and the birth of my son with no problem. Back then I was a little upset over the price, $250 approx. But i had thought that since it was a dvd camcorder that must be a good price since every other one I had seen was more expensive. Anyway I recorded my baby shower without a problem.

decent budget camcorder

ric027lp, Ebay

  • Summary: From researching other digital camcorders i've found this model was the cheapest for all the options. It records to a SD card which is infinitely cheaper and easier than mini DV's and even dVDs. The focus in low light is a little weak and the picture can be a little dark inside. But its small relatively fast and easy to use.

I would pass on this camera

N. parson, Amazon
6 November 2009
  • Summary: I'm going to make this short and sweet. This camera is OK. It works, and in good lighting can make a decent quality picture; however, more times than not, the pic quality is horrible, and the battery life wont last the length of a 20 min DVD. The record to a SD card is even worse. my wifes digi camera takes better video than this camera, and the still pic feature is worthless. To sum it up, I would stay away from this camcorder.

  • Summary: the product that i bought is in physically good shape, the price was good, but i only used the camcorder twice before it messed up... i power it up it stays on for 20-30 seconds and then turns off! the product came with an insurance offer but i didnt act in time to purchase it... my bad its a lesson learned. in all i rate this product average because of the problems i had from the camcorder after two uses.

  • Summary: The camcorder was well worth the price but I was disapointed that it wasn't clearly advertised that it didn't come with a battery . I had to go online & spend 4 hrs. searching & compareing prices to get batteries & charger.
