Camcorders are still useful

 

Cameras all have video now, but the image stabilization on this camcorder and ease of use makes it a much better fit for our families needs. Dirt cheap too.

Good camera for a beginner.

 

Good camera, although feels a little cheaply made (kind of like a toy), very light weight, but worked quite well. The quality says HD and the file sizes are huge, picture quality was good, but not as good as I would expect for HD, it takes quite awhile...
