short battery life

 

Do yourself a favor, don't buy this HP camera. I bought this camera so I could replace the rechargeable battery with AA batteries. I've replaced the batteries at least ten times with fresh new batteries and they always go dead within 15 seconds. The...

Useless because the battery only lasts 15 seconds.,Poor sound,Poor in low light

Excellent Low Cost Solution For The Average Person

 

Incredible value for the money. This camera is loaded with features while being extremely easy to use. It produces very high quality full HD video at up to 1080p resolution and still photos up to 5MP. The dual SDHC cards allow you to record and store...

Excellent video quality, excellent still image quality, loads of features, small and light-weight, very easy to use and dual memory cards offer huge storage capabilities

No viewfinder - you must use the fold out screen (sharp and clear as it is) to aim the camera and frame your shots. Lack of significant zoom capabilities

Cheap camera but you get what you pay for

 

Was on sale at boxing day sale at Walmart for $118, thought I'd give it a try. While waiting for lithium battery to charge, tried a set of alkaline AA's which lasted less than 15min before going dead. Rechargeable AA's might be better, but can't...

Dual power sources (rechargeable lithium or AA), dual SD slot, HD

VERY poor zoom (2X max on video mode), eats AA batteries extremely quickly

Great Features for an awesome price ”

 

This camcorder is the best I've ever used or seen. The quality of the video at 1080p is superb. I can even just play if back directly from the camcorder straight to my TV with the HDMI connection. I can also just connect the camcorder straight to my...

Fantastic Value for the HP - V5061u Digital Camcorder! ”

 

This product is definitely a great example of modern technology! This camcorder has a 3" touchscreen/LCD with a sleek black, compact and lightweight design. The 1080p results in a high definition quality which has resulted in this product being ...

Decent picture, easy to use ”

 

This camera was given to me as a gift by my husband a couple months ago. We have only used it a handful of times, like for my sons soccer games and for videos of our baby, but so far it isn't all that impressive. I like that it is small and easy to...

I purchased this camera fairly cheaply for $100, and that is exactley what we recieved. The camera seems very cheaply made. The zoom make the pictures look very grainy. The video camera mode is decent enough, the video also looks grainy though, and the...

Reliable Camcorder ”

 

I've only had this camera for about a week but I love it. Sure it doesn't do as much as some of the more expensive ones but its very handy. We have one of the older camcorders that you use tapes in. The battery stopped holding a charge a couple of...
