Use Only in Well Lit Areas

C. Hill "CFH", Amazon

  • Summary: Length:: 0:39 Mins The VuPoint DV-5056 Camcorder can produce surprisingly good results, but only in really well lit environments. I found this camcorder on clearance at a local "big box" store for about 1/3 of the normal retail, so it seemed like a good risk for use by my kids. Here are my observations: Pros - + Small Size; about the size of a large cell phone + Swivel Display; rotates 360 degrees to allow visibility even when videoing yourself + Video Mode; generally...

Great in low light and everywhere else!

  • Summary: I don't understand those problems others are having with photos in low light. I took several in darkness with flash and they came out fine - just as good as other cameras. The features are simple, direct, logical and easy to use. I learned to operate the camera quickly and I'm not a technology-friendly person. I have Essential Tremor. I've had difficulty using other cameras and had all but given up trying to take my own pictures.

Great outdoor camcorder

Kimari Woodfolk "Kimari", Amazon

  • Summary: OK first off im a 15 yr old male, i cant compare this cam the greatest because it is my first. I bought it at a pond shop for $25 specifically for filming skateboarding. This camera is well built, it has great clear quality although it doesnt work well in places that are not lit, it is recommended that u buy an SD card because without it you can only film for 2 mins max.

Gets the job done... but only in bright sunlight.

P. Phan, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm sure all of us have been curious on just how good a pocket camcorder could be. The answer is: not that good. I'll start off by saying I don't own this, but I have used it to film a school project, which equates to use in a variety of conditions. The camera is nice and compact, and has great battery life (it uses 4 AAAs). It has 4 functions (video, photo, microphone, and review).
