bargain

 

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...

Not bad for $29.95

 

The complaints here have some validity, but...it 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...

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....

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

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

Great buy

 

I am not looking at video quality when i rate this. The kids that use it could care less. I am looking at the fact that it is still working and was very inexpensive.

Well worth every cent. I bought this for my 11 year old child. They use it make kid movies and stuff. Its been over 6 months of play and the thing is going strong. Thats a tough test and it has passed

none for what i bought this for
