Great videos, Easy to use, Unreliable power

 

I got this on clearance at Meijer because my power supply is lost for my tape digital video camera. It takes surprisingly clear and colorful full screen videos played on my PC wide screen monitor. The zoom is hardly worth using as the picture becomes...

Lightweight, Compact, Easy to Use

Bad in Low Light
