GE DV1 Camcorder Review

 

We haven't reviewed a GE (General Imaging) product in a while, but get ready for the DV1—a cheap, waterproof, ultracompact camcorder that may be an answer for those on a tight budget. Don't bite before reading our review, though. The GE DV1 (We haven't...

GE DV1

 

Cheap, waterproof, and ultracompact, but also flawed, confusing, and frustrating

Waterproof down to 16 feet

Poor color performance; Can’t focus less that 5 ft. from subject; Some unpleasant design and handling issues

The GE DV1 frustrated us from the moment we took it out of the box, but there were a few things that we liked about the camcorder as well. Let’s start with the bad: the camcorder has a clumsy design, poor video performance, confusing controls, bad...

GE DV1 Digital Camcorder

 

The shockproof, waterproof GE DV1 is a good choice for outdoor enthusiasts. The durable design survived our drop test, and consumer testers liked the dedicated photo and video buttons. The on-screen menu layout was still a bit confusing, though, and...

GE DV1 review

 

GE's DV1 is another camcorder designed for outdoor use. GE claims it's waterproof to five metres and can survive a 1.5-metre drop.

It’s inexpensive and easy to use, but the DV1’s video quality is distinctly average.

GE DV1

 

GE's waterproof pocket camcorder looks to be a cheap contender to take on the Sony Bloggie Touch.

Its most interesting feature is the built-in USB connector that retracts inside the camera body when not in use, just like the Sony Bloggie Touch. HDMI output is also included.

GE DV1 – Waterproof digital HD video camera

 

This review of the GE DV1 digital HD video camera has turned out to be quite timely, given the recent demise of Cisco's Flip series of cameras.

Waterproof; shockproof; Full HD video; easy to use

Flimsy USB connector; fair image quality

At the price, the DV1 is a great video camera to take to the pool or the beach. Kids, especially, will just love it.

GE Camcorder DV1

 

Often not being the first to market is a plus as is the case here. The ‘Flip' has long been the best pocket camcorder around; many have tried to copy or improve. Here with the best bits from several is this offering from GE.

Doing my Internet searches found the GE DV1 at a best price of £76.91 from the first link below

GE DV1

 

The GE DV1: A compact camcorder that shoots full HD video

For an affordable and fun HD video camera the DV1 is a great choice. However, it won't appeal to a serious videographer and is better suited for family holidays

GE DV1 Review

 

The GE DV1 is a shock, water and dustproof flash-based camcorder, but does it perform where it counts?

Cheap, shock proof, water proof

Poor LCD, confusing to use

Not terrible to use, but the poor LCD and occasionally confusing controls spoil matter somewhat

GE DV1 pocket camcorder

 

Neat and simple pocket camcorder recording up to full-HD.

GE’s handheld video recorder is the latest to join the ranks of those inspired by the Flip Video mini camcorders (which arrived so late in Australia). It’s a neat package considering it can record all the way up to full-HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, while...
