Top Customer Reviews
Note: I bought mine used for $60 so my review may be more optimistic because of the deal at the time.
The video is really clear and does just as well if not better than analog camcorders. I can honestly say it's not as great as higher end HD camcorders but then again "you get what you pay for". The light doesn't do much good at all. Low light shooting still isn't that bad. I would recommend using this in a well lit area or outside during the day. I've also seen a choppy look to some quick panning shots. 720p is almost better than 1080 shooting. 1080 is not that much clearer and shooting in 720 saves memory card space, also transfering to PC is quicker because of the smaller video files.
The camera is amazing. I have a Sony Cybershot that costs 4 times as much that is just a little better than this little guy. Of coarse, you don't get any advanced features or the same quality. The flash works ok in short distances. There is no lens cap, you can't attach lenses or filters, but it's a really good point and shoot digital camera.
The audio recording feature works fine but really is useless. You might as well use the camcorder at low res. Audio in loud places distorts but is true with most cameras.
Memory card storage is awesome. It's cheap and reusable. Just buy one big card and that's all you'll ever need again. I've never had to trash a memory card for being worn out. Just transfer onto your PC and keep shooting.
The monitor is small but clear. Not recommended for those with seeing/reading problems. It is the only viewfinder. There is no other way to shoot. You can't turn it off to preserve battery life while shooting or else you can't see what you're shooting.Read more ›
Mine Has dents and scuffs and even missing pieces, and it still records fine. If you want to use this as a high speed slow-mo camera, It works great just for that. 60FPS is just enough to get smooth slow motion at .25x. But back to the durability. I have had some serious stuff happen to this camera. In the middle of recording videos, I have dropped it. It has fallen off tables. I shattered the glass in front of the lens as well as cracking the LCD screen, because a giant brick rolled over the camera after I dropped the brick on a plastic game in slow motion, and the brick bounced off of the handheld game and smashed the camera. The camera had trouble focusing, but after turning it off and back on it worked just fine. I have hit this camera with a scooter before, the video didn't save, but noting bad happened to the camera. I had this camera on one of those really tall tripods, and the wind knocked over the tripod and the camera was what softened the fall for the tripod. I can't even start on how many times this camera fell off tables and it still works. Very pleased. This camera is now 7 years old and I still use it frequently.
