Summary: Light and small to carry, easy to use with great features like 3 gramma setting(for brightness),optical and digital zoom, extra large and sharp screen (Sharp is very good at this all the time). Strongly suggest extra battery or a bigger capacity battery(which I got and last about 6 hrs).
Summary: I really liked this camera because of the size and ability to take the pictures and videos in one. Now however I am very disappointed because after one year of use the camera broke down. The still button that takes snapshots stopped working.
Summary: I have been using this camcorder for over a year now. The video is excellent as is the sound. It transfers video to the PC through the firewire with no problem. I have used Sony and JVC Mini DV tapes with it. (iread about the TDK causing trouble.
Summary: I have had this camera for just under a year. I bought the warranty. One day it just stopped working. Wouldn't turn on. I brought it to a repair center. It was sent back to SHARP and given all new internal parts.
Summary: Honestly, if you are buying this item get the extended warranty if available...you could very well need it. I had it for barely a year and it worked great no complaints at all till it just quit working all together. Now it makes a great paperweight. The unit will not power up at all.
Summary: This is an awesome product! I don't know why more people don't get them. The reliability, ease of use, combination of features and display area make this a top notch product. I use many DV cameras for my work so I know what I'm talking about here. The price makes this even better!
Summary: I HAVE HAD THIS CAMCORDER FOR ABOUT A WEEK NOW. I AM SO IMPRESSED WITH THE QUALITY OF THE VIDEO AND JUST THE OVERALL SIZE AND LOOK OF IT THAT I JUST HAD TO WRITE A REVIEW. I LOOKS QUITE A BIT DIFFERENT THAN MOST OF THE CAMCORDERS OUT THERE, BUT DON'T LET THAT DISSUADE YOU FROM PURCHASING IT.
Summary: Never having a camcorder before, I've been reasonably pleased with my Viewcam for the last 40 hours of its use. It's small enough to velcro to the dash and steadied by the windshield of my car (stuck on below battery and above viewcam's body) for making easy and watchable vacation travelogs if one...
Summary: We just had our first baby, and couldn't do without this camcorder/digital camera. It's very easy to use, and takes great quality video and still digital photos. A plus is that, if needed, you can record still photos from the video you shoot.
