Fisher price cost, Fisher price quality


Video set to highest quality setting, tried using a name brand micro SD card and built in memory to store pics/videos with identical results viewing on my computer. Haven't tried loading their codec, but VLC plays anything and has all codec's built...


Horrible video quality. 720p, not a chance. My old Hi8 tape camera took better quality video ; Horrible picture quality. They claim 8MP iterpolated. My kids Fisher VGA quality cameras take just as good quality pictures ; Only a digital zoom of...

Great for the price


I bought this as a gift for myself (49.99 at the time), and it was a great bargain. When I bought it, you could only get other standard def pocket cams for the same price. I am impressed with the video quality from it. It's not perfect, but it is not...

The price ; Different video resolutions 720, 480, etc ; Expandable memory

Does not do well in low light (Looks grainy) ; Mono sound not stereo

RCA EZ209HD Black 2.0" LCD HD Camcorder


This camera does look very cool but it doesn't start up half the time making me think it's broken but if I sent it back it and would start up at that point I'm sure. The lens sits out and doesn't have any kind of protection so you'll have to keep it...

Lightweight, Portable. Sleek looking

Feels like cheap Plastic, Software is useless and slow, Still images and video indoors are grainy and low quality

Great camera.


Over all, glad I bought it. It will see much use throughout the year.

Great video and picture quality, this is a great little camera for personal everyday use, it's smaller then some cell phones and comes with all the wires and everything for hooking it up to your TV which couldn't be any more simple to do. Love this...

The only real "con" with this is without the microsd card you can only take 8 minutes of HD video, and 30 or so of web quality video. And a couple hundred pictures. How ever this is an easy fix with a 16gig SD card which are pretty cheap

Blessing in disguise


Capabilities of this cam are great in terms of mic/lens quality. Firmware/video quality adjustment algorithms are complete junk. If they release a decent firmware update in the future, this cam is a steal.

Good hardware

Junk firmware/software, ADS, lazy programmers/poor quality control

Truely SmallWonder


All has been said

This truely is the smallWonder , its great light weight , video is great for the price. I would Recommend it to anyone that plans to use it video taping on rollercoasters( or Homemade Videos Wink Wink)

I don't have anything bad to say about it , mine works better than expected

Liked the idea of a "compact" camcorder with video and picture capability. Was glad I had my digital camera along as backup. Disappointing to not have the "Jedi" training video from Disney!

Small, decent size LCD screen, simple to use, inexpensive

Purchased item early January for use on a Disney Trip with children in February. Trial run went ok, without microcard. (internal recording time about 3-4 minutes). Was extremely finicky when recording, lost all pictures and video each time it was...

Decent Camera


Have a few other RCA products. Can't fault any of them.

Bought this for my son's 13th birthday. Also purchased an 8GB Transcend MicroSD chip. A touch over 4 hours of HD video recording. My son loves it. His friends think it's sexy. Hooks up to the TV so we can watch the video

Only con would be the USB cable that comes with it. I think it's about 6-8 inches. 18 or 24 inches would be much better

Perfect; Wish I had one sooner


I am a professional photographer for the military and I wish I would have had this camera alot earlier in my career. I use the videos to put with my photo slideshows and dub music to them. I shoot almost all the time in HD mode and a 2GB microSD card...

Great size, fits well in hand, takes great video if you're using for non-professional setting, extremely easy to use, photo feature and quality is a bonus in its own, video program already installed on camera and easy to install on computer, slides...

No tripod mount capability, lens protrudes from camera a little(completely flat would be nice to have but wouldn't keep me from buying an updated one in the future)
