Summary: images are barely visible and very dark unless in very bright light or sunlight. The particular camcorder I got also had issues with the mic...there was some sort of noise that overpowered what I was trying to record. I had hoped this to be a bit better, but I guess for $30 I definitely got what I paid for, which was quite disappointing. I will be purchasing a different one immediately!
Summary: As disappointing as everything about this camera is, I'll try to remain objective. The image quality looks horribly compressed and when shooting in HD the camera can only handle about 19 frames/second (typical for this type of device is 30). The result is grainy footage with entirely too much motion blur. I should note that changing settings in the menu didn't alleviate any of these issues. The device itself is all plastic and doesn't feel very substantial.
Summary: My husband got this camera for me for Christmas. I plan on taking it back tomorrow. I am pretty sure this camera has no flash. I can't find much information on it online either. There is a light which seems like it SHOULD be a flash that you can turn on and off, but it is basically a glorified pen light and just stays on and doesn't do squat as far as taking pictures. I have no need for a camera that can only take pics or video in daylight or outside.
Summary: The video quality is atrocious. It appears fuzzy, hazzy, and dark. I did some test videos in all different settings to try and clear up the image and it was no use. What a total disappointment! I purchased this in hopes of recording my kids' school events in a more convienent manner but I'm going to be taking this right back to the store!
Summary: I needed a camcorder just for taping my daughters activities. I bought a vivitar that was less expensive ($20) than this one. Needless to say it was taken back the same day. I saw this one and was hesitant at first because it looks cheap, and I was very disappointed with the other one. So I bought it, and took it to my daughters soccer game, and it did what it's cheaper version couldn't!! I was in amazement at how clear the taping was, it was incredible...
