don't waste your money on this

Irisheyes490 "Irisheyes490", Amazon

  • Summary: I do not like this camera and do not recommend it. The quality of the pictures and videos is very poor plus the camera itself is difficult to figure out how to use. The controls do not move easily and it is very easy to accidentally delete all your pictures, which I did.

Not pro, but reliable - for simple video

A. SOLA, Amazon
16 March 2012
  • Summary: I've had this little camcorder for a good 5 years (during that time it's seen it's share of bumps and bruises, but it's still chugging along!), and though I've upgraded for shooting "real" videos, I still use this for situations where I want to capture "the moment" without risking my "real"...

Absolute junk

Michael A. Duvernois, Amazon
28 September 2009
  • Summary: This is a worthless excuse for a camcorder. It really doesn't work correctly. Image quality is absurdly bad. The controls are painful to use. Bargain basement junk at higher than bargain basement prices.

Good value at less than list; not for everyone.

David Clapp, Amazon
28 January 2009
  • Summary: The other pros and cons are right on. It works for me, but the controls are finicky. I'm not sure about "jack of all trades", but it is a good fit for my particular needs: Compact, fixed focus and afforadable.

Need Minus Stars for this thing

Joel Blackwell The Grass Roots Guy "The Grass Roots Guy", Amazon
15 January 2009
  • Summary: This thing arrived without a memory card so would only record about 6 seconds of video. Finding the right SD card proved to be problematic and the company customer service rep said it would only accept 1GB card, which in video is precious little.

Disappointed.

Heater Hal, Amazon
3 December 2008
  • Summary: I returned this item because the main button controller, a joystick type button, did not work, I barely got it to work right a few times, after trying repeatedly. Also, when (trying) to change settings in the menu, it crashed (it errored and had to be turned back on).

Really bad at everything it does

Gretchen Lafaso "Gretchen", Amazon
21 May 2008
  • Summary: Don't spend the money, even if it seems like a great bargain. It doesn't work. The video's are bad. The pics are always blurry. Trying to change the settings is very difficult because the "mouse" type button... like the nipple on the old IBM thinkpads... is very glitchy.

good feature set for the money. jack of all trade but master of none.

Jian Chen, Amazon
21 June 2007
  • Summary: first thing first. this SUPPORTS SD cards GREATER than 1 gig. for some reason the manual say that's the largest card it support. I tried a 2 and 4 gig card and they worked fine. I never had a camcorder before or any other devices like this so I can't really compare but I have a Cannon SD550 digital...
