Worth Getting to Know


This camera is definitely worth getting to know. It's easy to use if you just want to record what's going on. However, it has some really neat features like a sports background, or party background to really spice up those already special occasions....

Lightweight and easy to use for simple recording. Offers advanced recording features.

Menu options take awhile to scroll through. Be careful with the volume.

Sharp VL A 10 : Idiot-Proof


See I am the original technophobe..Show me the latest DVD player, or Digi-Whatsit, and I have two responses either stare open-mouthed like a landed fish, or run like hell.. I can't help it.. It's an age thing.. Well that's my excuse and I am sticking...
