Consumer review by:

A very cheap camcorder. avoid or buy as temporary.


Not a good camcorder at all! avoid sensibly. Maybe ok for a young child around 7-8 years old as a first camera/corder.

It's quite easy to understand the basic layout and everything. It records fine and easily

Small. Bad on Battery Life. Bad Quality Recordings. Unreliable. Overpriced of what it is really

Consumer review by:



It is a very nice little camera and comcorder, You should immediately buy a memory card, it has a very small memory, so you have to constantly download it, with a memory card you would have better use.

This product is good for its value. It's not a high end video recorder but it does the job. Maybe pay a few extra dollars and get one with better image quality?

Consumer review by:

great buy!


Great little camcorder & received it so quickly. Got it for my 12 yr. old grandson & he loves it. Very user-friendly, compact, & attractive. Mine looks like a dinosaur next to this. Think I'll get one for myself!

Consumer review by:

Very nice for simple pictures and video


I use this product for a wide range of things, from shooting videos of my children to taking pictures with family, or taking videos at a social gathering. Very good product for simple projects! The only flaws I have seen thus far are poor recording...

Comfortable to Operate, Simple Controls, Versatile

Flimsy Construction, Rough vocal recording

questions before i buy


I would like to know if this is a good camcorder? I'm a first time buyer of camcorders. Is there anything else you would need to get to go along with the camcorder for use? Is there a must have for this camcorder to be used?

Has good reviews

Has some bad reviews
