Great for the price!


A very good product. It will take still shots but they are not clear. That is ok as I bought it for the camcorder.

Small, affordable, takes still shots

USB charger only. Still pics not great

Consumer review by:

It was working


I liked the product because it was small and lightweight and ideal for when I'm out hunting. The picture quality isn't as good as my Canon but the size makes up for it. The menu is kind of a pain to navigate through and it makes a ringing noise when...

It's compact, light weight, had the plug in charger & USB cable to charge it with. The screen is nice & big so it was pretty easy to see

Picture/video quality is ok for the price, but don't expect much. It makes a ringing noise when you turn it on, didn't work so well for hunting. It worked a few months ago adn now it wont turn on after charging. Display won't work

Cant be beat for the price


I usually prefer still pictures and I wanted a small camcorder for quick action shots and this little really filled the bill. The camera works as advertised.

Pocket size easy to use inexpensive

Viewing screen sometines hard to see in bright daylight

We bought this camera for our daughter's 4-day school trip to D.C. Tested the camera before the trip, bought 8G memory card and extra battery. We were happy....until the camera quit working on Day 2 of her trip. And, we had some difficulty retrieving...

It's inexpensive and has a very clear picture in bright light

Picture in low light pretty bad. Camera quit working after about a week. You get what you pay for

No image stabilization, dead battery after a few months


Wish I'd never bought it. Image quality was poor unless in bright sunlight and used on a stable surface such as a tripod, or the ground. Shaky images, weird colours sometimes, poor sound. I would have recorded valuable vacation memories some other way...

Cheap HD pic, adequate quality when on a tripod

Battery dead after a few months despite not using it much, mediocre picture quality, no image stabiization, doesn't work with some SD cards, colour reproduction randomly off-colour

This is one of the best by far!!!


If you want a camera for everyday life get this camera, its great for trips and youtube vids recording soccer games etc but if u want some camcorder doing proffesional work of course u must pay at least 600-1000 but this camera for the price and...

This video camera has a 11MP camera not 5!!!!!!!!! Great size very light and compact takes SD Card !!!! HDMI USB CHARGE//// What else its just the best.... Haha great screen size great sound quality, easy Nav system...Best looking camcorder out there

Everything is good about it i didnt find cons so far, but it would have been nice to have the vids at 60 FPS but 30 is really good for the price. Other then that NOTHING

terrible product


avoid like the plague!

lightweight for minimal carbon footprint in the rubbish bin

wouldn't even turn on. bought new for my son's birthday. huge disappointment

Consumer review by:

does a mediocre job except when night falls- blows


buy something else

it films. the HD quality is at the bare bottom of the scale

not the best HD camera, and don't even try filming anything at night the picture quality is worse than a toy camera

Total junk, don't waste your money


I found the videos nearly impossible to edit or share, and then the thing stopped working at all. I suggest you read the support forum before buying! Lot's of...

When it worked, it did record video

You need to install a special codec on your pc to view the movies. Without it, the videos are not viewable; so you can't share them. Worse, it will soon stop working entirely, as mine did. Checked the support forums and found this is common

Good camera, but no way to turn off the start-up sound


For the price, the camera is great, and I was very excited when i ordered and received it. Unfortunately I wanted to use it to film wildlife, and Insignia put start-up sound and a bright green screen with Insignia written across it every time you turn...

Really good quality for the price/size. Image stabilization is decent. Motion sensor is a nice feature. Menu is pretty navigable with nice features and a fair amount of setting that can be adjusted

No way to turn off the start-up sound
