This camcorder is a must have!!!!!!

 

I bought 2 of these camcorders on ebay for $75.00 each, after my friend bought one and showed it to me. These are one of the best buys I have ever made. Not only is it a camera and camcorder, but it also... -can record and play dvds, and tv shows...

Great camcorder and very good price $$$90,

 

Patience in dealing with the controls because they are small and responds rapid.

Excellent definition for their size compact, very good Mp3, design well favored

Manual leaves the desire, really difficult to read Manufacture may improve, battery consumes rapid, better always take a battery extra

Consumer review by:

frustrated

 

I would like a user manual that I can read and learn how to use the camera. I can't believe that a manual like this is with the camera.

Nice and compact if I can figure out how to use it. I look forward to using it with a new grandson in our family

The user manual is very hard to read. The print is so small that I can't even read it. I have had it since October for my birthday , but can't figure out how to use it

Great 5 in 1 camcorder!

 

I love it! I would recommend it to all. Mine is refurbished so I spent an extra $17.00 and extended my warranty.

Great camcorder for the price! Has a great video camera and takes still shots. Has a MP3 player, voice recorder and even has several games on it. Along with its compact size and memory card capabilities, it a great camcorder for its price

Would be nicer if the joy stick was not so sensitive. Has a couple of features like continuous shots and stabilization that once you turn off the camera, the setting return to the off position. Would be nice if they stayed on until you changed them

Great Camcorder, Camera, and MP3 Player for the $$

 

This Camcorder is also a Voice recorder, MP3 player, and a game player. First the Camcorder. Very good quality for the price. Not the best, but FAR from the worst. Great for a teen to put Youtube/myspace/car ******** videos on the internet. Although...

Very good video quality. Stills are solid. Mp3 Player sounds great and is easy to Transfer music to. Very Compact for this kind of device. Interesting control scheme

The Joystick is a Bit Tricky at Times. Sometimes you'll finger will Get in the Way of the Shot. Includes Terris and Some other Games on it But the Controls are Terrible
