GE DV1 review: GE DV1

 

GE DV1

The ; is small, inexpensive, and water- and shockproof.

The DV1 captures motion poorly, is slightly confusing to use, has no video editing/sharing software, and uses a nonremovable rechargeable battery with a short life.

The rugged GE DV1minicamcorder is OK for casual Web videos. If you need more than that, look elsewhere.

GE's waterproof pocket camcorder looks to be a cheap contender to take on the Sony Bloggie Touch.

GE DV1-GG Camcorder Review

 

The all new GE DV1-GG camcorder is a unique device since this mini camcorder can remain waterproof up to a depth of 16 feet is shock proof up to a height of 5 feet and is completely dust proof.

GE DV1

 

For an affordable and fun HD video camera the DV1 is a great choice. However, it won’t appeal to a serious videographer and is better suited for family holidays

Leaked now not working

 

Poor waterproof seals. Pictures and video is sub-par when compared to a non-waterproof camera. Not recommended.

Easy to use. Can take pictures while filming video

No image stabilization, so videos are jumpy. Seal around openings leaked and camera had a lot of water in it. I was wading in the ocean so camera was never under more than 2 feet deep. I had for almost a year with limited use. Only was used because it...

Good Value

 

I got this on sale for half off. At full price it is still a good value, but not one to get excited over.

Compact and easy to use. Can capture still photos at double movie resolution while flming. Good selection in video format and quality, but otherwise has minimal features

The not-very-sturdy full-size flip-out male USB connector leaves me questioning the durability camera. How long will it take my son to break it

Low weight & bulk. Clear pictures. Fits nicely into handbag.

Sound could be better.

GE DV1

 

Vwry easy to use, ideal to pop in your pocket and take anywhere rain or shine! Quality is quite good in reasonable light levels

Not so good in low light
