Takes Great Videos For The Budget Minded Family

 

I really love this little video camera from RCA. When we were shopping for a new video camera we were looking for 3 things; price, size and extra features. This camera met our requirements and more!

Great Clarity, Color And Ease of Use/ Inexpensive

None of The Real Fancy Options
