good value


Bought this as a present for my 10 year old and he started using it straight away. Good quality and good value for a touch screen. Very lightweight and good quality pictures- made him feel klike a professional!

Poor blurry picture/screen


I was unable to check the other features of the camcorder such as the sound and battery life, as the screen was so blurry I returned the product. Also, the touch screen didnt work well either, as I tried to check the settings and had to use the buttons...

Incorrect description


I reserved this and when I collected it I discovered it only has 4x digital zoom and not 23 x optical zoom as advertised. Returned immediately.

Poor value even at half price.


Poor controls, menu and touch screen,. Softwaredifficult to download. Nothing intuitive of helpful about ths product. It is exempt from the thirty day guarantee, so is definitely not worth a risk. I will throw this away rather than attempt to re-sell.

Good Purchase


purchased this for my daughter, unfortunately the info on the box and the info on the camera regarding which memory card to purchase was contradictive - hence i purchased the wrong card and had to return. Argos was excellent regarding help and service....
