hi

Good value for money, easy to use

 

This is a good little camcorder to use for the sorts of things I want to use it for: I need to capture group meetings, events and daytrips, and generally to generate a bit of content for YouTube and Facebook.

Consumer review by:

Handy little camcorder

 

This camcorder is so easy to use and so small it fits into my pocket or handbag. The picture quality is excellent and I am overall very pleased with my purchase.

Consumer review by:

On the money ...

 

Okay Spielberg and the Tech-Nerd next door may have a much better one with lots of technical buttons on it but I bet they paid an awful lot more.

Consumer review by:

Consumer review by:

photos not so good

 

nice product but the photos seem to be slightly out of focus but the video quality is good, i'm hoping i have a faulty one as i'm planning on asking for an exchange and hopefully the replacement will be better

Consumer review by:

Good camera.

 

Battery dies after 25 min shooting in full 1080 does not work well in low light conditions. Otherwise not bad, good value for money.

Consumer review by:

small and versatile

 

I go this today and play all day with it. This camcorder is small enough to take it with us anywhere we go. Of course the quality of the image is not par to the larger cameras which pack larger image sensors, but this is as good as it can get....better...
