Size vs. Convenience

 

The Fisher FVD-C1 is a highly likeable product that's simple to set up and use. It produced good video quality when conditions were right, and impressive 3.2-megapixel stills. Red flags include color issues when shooting under fluorescent lighting, the...

Compact, shoots impressive still images

Poor color reproduction under some lighting conditions, file compatibility issues for editing video output

Small size and great still-image capability make this camera an attractive proposition, but its expensive media and color-balance problems in fluorescent lighting conditions, as well as its limited video-file compatibility, drag this camera down.

Camcorder Review Fisher FVD-C1 SD Card Camcorder

 

There are plenty of times when you might want to capture the fun on video or stills but don't want to lug around a full-sized camcorder and camera. And even the best camera phones will deliver just barely useable video quality or length. The latest...

The Canon Optura 40 is the standout among these contenders, with excellent video quality, respectable stills, and professional features (such as true 16:9 mode). The Sony and the Panasonic are also good choices, but for the difference in price, we'd splur

FVDC1 SD Digital Camcorder

 

Having researched this camcorder before purchase, the first thing I did upon its arrival was to change its menu mode from Basic to Expert.

As still camera, excellent 3MP with 6x optical zoom. As camcorder, excellent miniDV quality outdoors, in sunlit rooms, or brightly lamplit interiors

In medium-to-dim lamplit interiors, video quality on automatic settings looks OK on camcorder display but quite poor on computer ; needs correction even to reach minimal acceptability

Was a deception.

Small, compact

Video quality in interiors is the worst.
