Nice for always having a camera or camcorder available.

Summary: I bought this for my wife to have something to carry in her purse. It takes great pictures and video if you don't use the digital zoom feature. Amount of video and pictures only limited by the size of the Memory Stick. Yes, it only uses the Memory Stick, does not use SD cards.
Summary: Easy to use YouTube cam. The video quality is 640x480. Don't expect HD with this item. Zoom quality is not great. Simple to use. Rechargeable battery. I bought it on eBay for about $50 and I'm very pleased with the product.
Summary: This is a convenient camcorder with its size the ease of use, though need a little time to figure out how selection button works. The video quality is not good, but uploading to Youtube is fun and easy. Overall, I like it, except the blurry video quality.
Summary: I never have been a video recording nut. My wife and I take ballroom dance classes from Parks & Rec, but while we can do quite well during classes, only a few weeks later we have forgotten what we learned. Using this to record what we learned while at our last class provides us with a great visual 'review' to remind us just before we go out dancing! For a minimal investment, this has served us very, very well.
Summary: I purchased the camera out of the box at a local Circuit City a couple of weeks ago. Its easy to use and upload stuff now that i know how to use the camera. For those without advanced computer knowledge it would be very frustrating. Getting video up on You tube and other sites is easy. Converting MPEG4 files needs to be accomplished and you need to get software to do this.
Summary: I actually just bought this camera today and I've already gotten the hang of it. It took me a while to realize that I could only take 2 pics because there is no memory card. I was stuck on that for about 3 hrs. But overall the camera is well worth the price and I love the swivel screen so I can do self photos. I highly recommend this camera if you're looking for a device that has all the basics.
Summary: Pros: 1. Good picture quality (for the $ paid) 2. Small size / weight 3. Simple to use in movie mode 4. Very fast start-up (1-2 seconds) Cons: 1. Editing software (no easy way to translate MP4 into MP3) 2. Mediocre sound (sound wheezing while skiing and I am not that fast skier) 3. You need to add a memory card Overall - for the money paid, it's a good deal.
Summary: So this was my first video camera. Thus far it has been great. I have used it for online video presentations, my longboarding, and general wheather conditions i want to show online. Only problem i had with it, when i was recording my speech, there was feedback from the mic from any movement. Other than that, it is great. Ha, and because i have big hands, i have still have a habbit of covering the lens while i am holding the camera.
