Not Good


I purchased this dvr to record my family at horse shows. I never even took it to the shows because it was always blurry and every time you click to zoom in it beeps which is annoying. The only way I would recommend this product is maybe as a gift for a child's birthday.

I may try it again in the future.


When I purchased the camera I was told that it would take rechargeable batteries. However, the accompanying instructions stated that they should not be used. Using a set of regular batteries I got only a few seconds of use. So I returned the camera....
