ease of use.

Consumer review by:

A great camcorder for the price.

 

When our daughter turned eight months old my husband and I decided it was about time we got a camcorder. We didn't want to spend too much; we just wanted something simple to operate that would make good quality films to capture her precious first words...

Affordable, great picture and sound, easy to use.

No LCD screen, No image stabilizer, but can't really complain at this price.
