For 18 dollars its worth giving to a kid for his birthday, otherwise its useless if you want to watch what you recorded in the future, i got mine at, it took longer than usual for the package to arrive but the product was new, however not worth the money if like me you want recordings worth watching


Poor image quality, Poor sound

Consumer review by:

Good camera, good pictures not particularly great price


The Polaroid DVF-130 is a very compact, simple, and easy to use device, but if you want a serious video camera look elsewhere.

Small Size, Very Easy to use, User friendly interface, TV out connection, Very easy to use software on your computer

Price can be as high as $50 and as far as i'm concerned this is way too simple to be $50, Zoom quality is not that great, no autofocus

Okay product


Got what I expected. Requires an S D card to produce multiple videos.

Consumer review by:



For the price the device is worth the money. It ain't perfect, but performs well. Internal memory is only 16MB and only holds 7 seconds of video, but adding an 8 or 16GB sdhc gives adequate room for several video shots. Handy, compact, user friendly...

excellent product

Consumer review by:

Not bad for $29.95


The complaints here have some validity, has 16MB not 16GB built in. YOU NEED A MEMORY CARD to make it more useable.It has great photo quality in bright light. Low light doesn't work well... so... use it outside on bright days... there are lots...

Consumer review by:

Never will go wrong for the price!


Light. Compact. Easy to use as camera or video recorder. Takes & Records excellent. I suggest getting another 16gb. card for recording special events....

Consumer review by:

Looking like a flip phone is as far as it goes


Poor image quality, It will not work in low light, Videos are faded out, sound quality like a child's toy

Consumer review by:

good product


i bought this item because a flip is too expensive for me and it worked perfectly for what i needed it short and sweet and with an added sd card you have more memory space
