Great Value HD Camcorder


I purchased the unit to keep as a small lightweight and inexpensive HD quality video and still camera. I have used it for a few months now and have to say that I am not disappointed. The quality of the HD video is good, while the still images are...

Dead after 3rd use


Bought camera 2.5 months ago and used only twice. On third use camera would simply turn off when pressing the record button. Special occasion that was missed due to poor electronics. Battery life is poor as well. Make sure you have plenty of batteries.

Good video/picture, but not for everyone


This camcoder is not for everyone and I want to make that very clear from the beginning. Video/picture in low light conditions is not the best and will be poor choice for shooting indoors.

GOD, I hope they'll take it back!


My digital camera takes better video, and is easier to use and download. No matter what I try, I can not access the videos anywhere but the screen. I was smart enough to buy additional SDHC memory card, but I will also have to buy a special card reader...

This is the WORST camcorder ever!!!!!


Okay...this is the absolute worst camcorder/camera I've ever used. When in picture mode if you want your hand to be comfortable while hitting the button chances are your hand will be covering the flash assuming you turn the flash on. The construction...
