Great for the $$

 

I have had this for 6 months and never failed me. To those who complain about the still pic quality: You obviously don't know what you are doing. I have gotten some killer stills out of it. You simply have to play with the setup and you too will get...

Quality 720p (sans any zoom) recording. 8MP still camera. Menu system is a no brainer after a minute or two of playing around with it. Lightweight. Very adjustable view screen.

I hate putting cons here because what can you expect for a great price? So: No optical zoom (understandable, it's a inexpensive camera). MOV (quicktime) output. Uhg, why could they not support mpeg1/2 or wmv or avi?

Get a digital camera instead

 

Buy yourself a high quality digital cam or a different video camera. This thing is a joke. I don't know why anyone gave it a rating higher then 1. They must not have an average digital cam.

none

Very poor video quality. My Cannon powershot takes better audio and video then this thing does. HD what?. Comes in a plastic package. New egg better accept a return on this piece of junk.

Good for the price and then a little more

 

Try to avoid taking stills,use a true digital or not digital camera. Im using this one as a play around cam, while ill save the more awesome stuff for the HF100 im getting in :) Final verdict. i am happy with this purchase. its 125 bux that i know ill...

Low Price -Lightweight -size -Good video for price -Battery life -file sizes are small -TV out allows it to record tv :) -Screen size is nice for the price as well -zoom isnt that bad -alot of extra settings to play with

Still pictures are pretty ehhh -when flash is on, you can tell its what took the picture -as the others pointed sound is not the greatest, i wouldnt venture to say it was horrible. -videos output to .mov, which is cool. but you're gonna have fun trying...

good little cam

 

neweggs great never had to return a thing......if you want a cam for around the house to catch the crazy,funny or cute stuff pets and kids do then this is the camcorder for you.

not a bad price....video quality isnt bad......its a small camcorder light....long battery life......fast charging battery.

if i could say one thing about this it would have to be......take the HD off of it....nowhere near......just because it records at HD resolution dont make it HD.....one other thing is that they should include a carry case.

Fun HD Camera

 

Be careful when using the cables to connect to your TV, this camera has issues with electrostatic discharge, and buildup in the cable. No problems when you aren't moving the cable around while it is plugged in, but sometimes it shuts down and I have...

This video camera is fun to use, and I am very happy with it. The HD video is not 1080p, it is 720p. Works better in outdoor lighting, but we use it indoors a lot too, and we're happy with it. Buy a SD-HC card (we got 8GB) because each hour of HD video...

Unfortunately, the zoom is digital, so HD quality is gone when zooming in. Other reviewers have mentioned the audio quality is poor, and I would have to agree. But you can't expect a cheap camera to be as good as a professional one.

HD ?

 

I bought this to film my kids as they play sports; tee ball, motocross, and other events. It's not the greatest camera and image stabilization would be a huge bonus, but for the price it will suffice until I can afford an $800 Hi-Def camera.

Cheap small video camera

Not really HI-Def. If you accidentally use the ""Macro"" slide anything past 10 feet is severely blurred. Zooming in or out will likely cause video lag.

Consumer review by:

Not really HD!

 

Newegg rocks!

Cheap

Claims to be HD (High Definition). And it does indeed produce video in HD format: 1920 x 1080 resolution. But the extra pixels are a sham. With the tiny lens and image sensor, the image quality is so fuzzy that it's worse than most non-HD camcorders....

Great While it lasted...

 

Was a decent camera until it just completely died. I would not recommend this product, get something with better quality. I ended up buying a Kodak v1253 HD camera (sorta low priced for hd).

The Price! The lowest priced camera with HD video I have ever seen. The camera works great and the menus are attractive. You can take pic, videos and sound recordings. Another feature is you can connect another device to The Camera's input and record...

The camera only lasted me a week. I used it several times and it always worked fine, i have never dropped it. Then on thanksgiving, i was recording some video and it just shut off. I thought it was the battery, but i charged it for a day or 2 and it...

Nice...

 

when the next HD camcorder up is around $600, NO brainer...... This has all I need and was looking for

I had my doubts, due to the price, but wow... for the money... I haven't owned a camcorder in a couple years, and this exceeded my expectations... The picture and video quality is amazing, far better than I'm used to, and I watch high def videos all...

Won't stand up by itself for self timer pictures etc. No remote. Video stabilization would be nice, but what do you want for $150 lol. Has a screw on the bottom for tripod...
