Nice Camera, does NOT work with I-Movie
Christopher Len "Chris", Amazon
17 February 2007
Summary: I bought this camera through Amazon and antonline. Its a really nice camera, but it is completely unable to function in any meaningful way through imovie and has no value if you own an Apple Computer. This is because the camera records in mpeg-2 and apparently is inherently non-editable.
Summary: Given that this is my first real camcorder, outside of the digital cameras I own that support 20 second video clips, I have little to compare it to. That being said, I've seen people with stacks of DV tape that they never convert to DVD, and consequently - never view again.
Summary: I loved this camera for outside use, but anything inside with even marginally low light and the video quality is so poor it is unwatchable. If you shoot indoors at all, this is not the camera for you.
Summary: great amount of storage, lacks audio input, and the auto focus is noisy on it, and isn't fast enough when zooming in. not bad for the amount of recording you can do. the cam is really small as well.
Summary: Great product! Now I don't have to carry tons of tape for recording my memories. Fast connection with your computer. Pictures come out great. Sometimes it may be blurry. You might have a problem location an extra battery. The extra SD drives are useful for back up. User friendly.
Summary: I did lot of comparisons with similar PRICED camcorders sony/Canon ($500) and here are my finding The factors need to be considered in any digital photo/video are 1. CCD size 2. MP 3. Filter Size - Lense dia - big means more light goes in to CCD 4. Lense Quality I like this camcorder because 1.
Summary: This is an amazing little camera. If you edit your movies on a computer you will LOVE this camera because it stores files on the built in hard disk drive instead of tapes. It can record for more than six (6) hours on the hard disk drive (at the HIGHEST quality setting).
Summary: I just graduated from the 1min movies in my digital camera to this camera. I am impressed by the overall functionality of this camera. Positives: 1) Easy to shoot both Movies and Pictures. We think still pictures have their own value. So, taking good pictures was important for us.
Summary: This is a little gem. It's small, it's easy to use. It takes great videos and the camera function allows you to get some outstanding action photos. I love it. The only thing more I could ask for might be an external mic jack. Other than that - buy it.
Summary: We have had this camera for less than 2 years when the ac adapter quit working. Unfortunately, Toshiba quit making parts to this and there is no place to get replacement parts. This is really sorry that this nice camera is basically useless when something goes wrong with it!
