  • Summary: If you insist on purchasing this camcorder then get the extended warranty. This camcorder really isn't worth the money though. Keep looking for something better!
  • Pros: Fairly inexpensive - apparently because it is meant to be disposable!
  • Cons: No cable included. LCD screen went blank and broke after 30 minutes of recording.

Cam is good but software sucks

  • Pros: Use friendly, Light weight, touch screen LCD, exceptional video and audio quality, Carl Zeiss lens.
  • Cons: Not full digital. Still picture quality is not very good. No USB or S-video cables.
