Can't recommend it

Roger Harris "rog", Amazon
11 March 2010
  • 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 are not sharp and a lot of detail gets missed, the video is jerky when you pan, and it struggles to focus when you zoom.

Terrible product

A. J. Strietmann "Go Bengals", Amazon
8 March 2010
  • 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. It will require a lot of work to get a good shot, and even if it looked acceptable (which it won't), the sound is terrible. There is a background noise that appears out of nowhere and is louder than people talking.

You get what you pay for.

Jeantet Fields, Amazon

  • 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. DO NOT get this if you plan on devoting a lot of time and effort editing and creating movies. The quality of the videos is simply not high enough.

Polaroid HD Camcorder

  • 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.

MUCH BETTER THAN THE POCKET IPOD CAMERAS

Richard L. Siefferman, Amazon
12 June 2009
  • 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...THE MEMUES ARE EASY TO FOLLOW AND DO NOT PRESENT A PROBLEM...STUDY THE CONTROLS ON THE BACK OF THE CAMERS AND YOU WILL BE AN EFFECTIVE USER..

Do not buy this camera

DAS, Amazon
31 May 2009
  • 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). The camera's performance was dismal. The LCD screen stopped working on the first day. I called Polaroid's customer service for support but they were extremely difficult to deal with.

Don't waste your money!

Ernest R. Anderson "D,I.Y. Guy", Amazon
31 May 2009
  • 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. Forget support on Poloroid web site... they barely admit this thing exists.

Great Camera For a Good Price

Overstock
20 May 2009
  • 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. Would definitely recommend to freinds and family!

A Decent Camcorder with Very Good Vavue

Wayne X. Yue, Amazon
13 May 2009
  • Summary: I do not understand why some owners gave so much bad reviews. Maybe they got defective ones. It is my third digital camcorder. Its video image is better than my JVC 90 and Samsung 6040 miniDV, especially when it plays back on a HDTV. Its still image is also as good as an average compact camera. Very convenient for a traveler. At $129, it's wonderful value.

very good for the price

Joseph S. Nawrocki, Amazon
13 May 2009
  • 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 you might find that it is lacking in some aspects, but I don't see how you can find it a disappointment for the price.The video quality is actually very acceptable, of course...
