GE DV1 HD Digital Video Camera (Grey)

 

Shopping by specs can result in a very disappointing purchase. The GE DV1 rugged minicamcorder is waterproof to 16 feet, shockproof to 5 feet, and dustproof. It records full HD-resolution video at 30 frames per second as well as at 720p at 30 or 60fps,...

The GE DV1 Pocket Video Camera is small, inexpensive, and water- and shockproof.

The DV1 captures motion poorly, is slightly confusing to use, has no video editing/sharing software, and uses a nonremovable rechargeable battery with a short life.

Good Value

 

I got this on sale for half off. At full price it is still a good value, but not one to get excited over.

Compact and easy to use. Can capture still photos at double movie resolution while flming. Good selection in video format and quality, but otherwise has minimal features
