don't waste your money on this

Irisheyes490 "Irisheyes490", Amazon
7 August 2013
  • 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. I ended up buying a Canon Rebel camera shortly after I got this VuPoint camera as I was so unhappy with it.

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" equipment. For straight video, it does a good job. For still pics, it's better than nothing, heh heh.

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. That said, there is a new generation of the gum stick sized mini-DVRs that are said to offer VGA resolution and take "compact" to a new level. Progress is rapid in this field - so expect pricing to adjust accordingly.

Need Minus Stars for this thing

Joel Blackwell The Grass Roots Guy "The Gras..., 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. I did find a site that said this exact model would accept up to 16GB, so who knows. Usser manual offers no clue as to compatibility of SD cards.

"frustrated"

pconley, CNET
14 December 2008
  • Pros: Nice and compact if I can figure out how to use it. I look forward to using it with a new grandson in our family.
  • Cons: The user manual is very hard to read. The print is so small that I can't even read it. I have had it since October for my birthday , but can't figure out how to use it
