Summary: This is a first class camcorder. I bought this for my wife for mother's day. We had an outdated camcorder that it was hard to find the tapes for. This camcorder is great, you can hook it up to your HDTV and watch in 1080p. You can also hook it up to your computer and if you have a DVD burner on your computer you can burn a DVD. It's an outstanding product with an outstanding price. It's small and very easy to use.
Summary: This camera was purchased for my son as an upgrade from his pocket Vado. The camera is great for general video use and has a lot of features for the money. Not the most high-end camera you're going to find but it doesn't cost a fortune either.
Summary: This Camcorder is an excellent buy for the average home used. I only gave this a three star review because it is a huge step down from what I'm used to. This camcorder is not well suited for a professional videographer. The auto focus is a huge hindrance. The white balance only has presets that can lead to a terrible video shoot. The mic is crap. and there is no aux mic input. The only reason I have it is because I need it to make enough money for a real camera.
Summary: This camera has good battery life, and memory storage. I didn't realize that I did NOT need to buy an SD card, as the camera does have some internal memory for videos. This camera has a great zoom feature, but I did not realize that even while zoomed all the way out, it does not have a very wide angle view up close. I'd say this camera would be great for sporting events, although I have not tried this outside yet.
Summary: I purchased this camera for videoing counseling sessions for my master's degree study. It is easy to use, and works well for what it was intended for. I have not used it for outdoors, children, or sports yet so I can't comment on that.
Summary: This is a very nice little camcorder but Toshiba includes the wrong software from ArcSoft. I wouldn't expect much from a bundled video editor but, because there is no recording pause function, the only way to skip over some boring stuff is to stop and start a new file after a delay. I would expect the bundled editor to let me concatenate these files, even if it did nothing else. This is not too much to ask for.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder to replace an older JVC model. This camcorder is a good value for the money-it's a handy size and easy to use. It was ready to go right out of the box. Picture and sound quality are fine, the only issue I had was that at times it didn't seem to focus correctly. I also like that it will accommodate large memory cards-a feature that my older camcorder didn't have. We were able to record several hours on one card.
Summary: I wasnt happy with the fuzzy video..then I noticed a dead pixel almost center that was very annoying ..so I sent it back..but for the money if it werent defective I would say its an ok buy..spend $50 more and maybe get better video..dont understand why it was fuzzy at distances of 4ft or more..but it was clear close up to lens...
