Summary: This is a cheap Chinese camera sold under the Polaroid brand name, but it's also been sold under other names. I bought this about a year ago on Woot for $130, which was a great price for a camera that shoots 720p, although the video was not so great: It's passable in full sunlight, although edges...
Summary: This is the worst camcorder I have ever seen. Every part of this camcorder is terrible. Video looks dark, grainy, and is worse than my video cell phone. Although the resolution is in "HD" the pixels are blocky.
Summary: This product was excellent. The video quality was superb. The audio wasn't the greatest but i really don't need the audio too much. For the price, this is the best HD Camcorder out there. Price: 5 Star Video: 5 Star Audio: 3 Star
Summary: THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT EACH CLIP YOU RECORD IS A SEPERATE CLIP..IF YOU WANT TO EDIT THE VIDEO YOU HVE TO GO TO THE COMPUTER...AS A STILL CAMER AND A VIDEO CAMERS IT IS AOK... HAVEING WORKED IN TV FOR 40 YEARS I MISS A VIEW FINDER AND IT TAKE ME SOME LEARNING TO USE THE VIDEO SCREEN..
Summary: I purchased this reasonably priced camera wanting a serviceable camera to capture family memories. This camera seemed perfect for my needs as most of its performance reviews were favorable and the negative reviews were limited to mac compatibility issues (not relevant for me).
Summary: Drops frames like crazy with image stabilzation is on... so it it worthless unless in low resolution mode. Video quality is marginal at best compared to my 7 year old Sony. Video is file is some non-standard DivX format... windows DVD maker does not recognize it.
Summary: A lot of people are wanting to do an apples to oranges review with this camera. I paid $129.00 including the shipping for a brand new one on amazon. I've used it a couple of times and for the money it is an excellent value.I'm sure if you compare it to a digital video camera costing 3 times as much...
Summary: I got this camera from another e-tailor for about $100. In short, it's a great camera for the money, but don't buy this thinking it's an alternative to a $1000 CamCorder. The old saying "you get what you pay for" applies here more than ever.
Summary: For the price, you really can't beat it. It has been a great camera, except for when you want to use the camera feature. It does not take the best pictures. Other than that, it is a wonderful purchase. The video feature works perfectly and the picture quality is HD just like it states it is.
Just because it says HD doesn't make it high quality

Summary: I've only had this camera for two days but I have already found several things wrong with it, and the only redeeming feature is it's really cheap so what the heck. Oh, and it comes with lots of cables--that's good. Now that we have that out of the way, here are the drawbacks. 1.
