There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The controls are laid out rather well, and the buttons are extremely sensitive requiring only minimal pressure to activate...something I really liked. Other cams have buttons that require more force resulting in clicking sounds in your footage...this cam does not suffer from that. The only problem I did have was with the macro switch, which is located right above the lens. It has an extremely small lever which you need to click to one side, and it's very stiff. They designed it to be operated with your index finger while holding the cam, but it's so stiff that you have to use your fingernail instead, which makes it somewhat awkward. It's not really a big deal though considering most who purchase these things are not even going to use the macro anyhow. The cam has a nice flip out resistive touch screen, which is bright and clear, and swivels around so that you can take self portrait images if desired. The touch screen is responsive and only requires minimal pressure to navigate the menu system. Others have complained that the menu system has icons with no labels, making it confusing what they all do, but one touch of your finger will tell you, so complaining about that is ridiculous IMHO.
Now, aside from it's good looks and excellent feel, functionality really suffers. The cam has a small led light up front under the lens, like most do. However, the placement is directly where you want your index finger while holding it, which was not the best place to put it. Not only that, but the led is not white, it's yellow. It looks like normal white light at first glance, but after trying it in the dark, it had a distinctive yellow hue to it, making my white walls look dingy and dirty. I know these lights don't really contribute that much to low lighting anyway, but it should at least be white. They might as well have put a normal incandescent bulb it it...oops, did we miss something here?
My main disappointment came when I reviewed my footage, which at first sight looked impressive for a 5MP sensor. After looking closer, I noticed that when the cam was held very still it was crisp and clear, but anytime I moved, I noticed it had trouble processing the images, resulting in a blurry line that traveled from the bottom of the screen to the top very quickly. This almost looked like a refresh line you would see on a computer monitor. I tried every shooting mode the camera had, switched to a faster memory card and even tried different media players, but this was an issue no matter what I tried. I have other small pocket cams, including those made by DXG, and they all suffer from this problem, but the Veho is worse...a real bummer. The footage is also very jumpy in 1080 mode, and I found myself shooting in 720 to eliminate it...even with the image stabilization activated. Speaking of 1080 and 720 modes, despite what some other reviews have stated, this cam IS NOT true 1080HD...it is interpolated by on board hardware. Basically, it means taking the picture and stuffing in guessed bits to make it larger. This is basically taking footage recorded in 640 and blowing it up to 1080. One look at the description and specifications here on Amazon will tell you the story. How is it possible to have 16MP resolution when Veho states they use a 5MP sensor? Sorry folks, but you are not going to get true 1080HD performance from a 5MP sensor...it's just not possible, and reviewers who think they can, have obviously never used a true 1080HD camcorder. So, don't let all the "True HD Footage" reviews on this product blind you from the truth. Think about it...are you going to get $150,000 Ferrari performance out of a Ford Focus?
This cam also has a very slow reaction time to adjust light levels...sometimes taking up to 5 seconds, making some shots start out bright only to have them dim down later. Sometimes just moving the cam a hair out of frame results in light dimming, which is very frustrating. You will also experience grainy images when using this indoors, unless you are under very bright lighting. If you are shooting around your living room and only using a 60 watt blulb in your table top lamp, then forget it. The zoom on this cam was very smooth and easy to use, unfortunately, it resulted in very grainy footage after half scale. This is to be expected though for a cam with a fixed focus lens and no optical zoom. Sound was a little muffled, but worked adequately.
Still pictures were also cumbersome being very blurry and undefined, and I found it inconvenient that the cam had to be idle to take a picture. It would have been nice to be able to take a digital still while recording, but I guess that's too expensive of a feature for a $99 cam. Also, after pushing the picture button, the camera takes 5 seconds to actually take the picture. This involves some guesswork because the screen freezes to show the shot you're taking, but the actual picture is taken 5 seconds later, forcing you to be completely still to avoid a ruined picture...how stupid. Even with the use of a tripod, pictures came out blurry and washed out. If you are thinking of using this for picture taking, think again!
The menu system is pretty straight forward, and for me was easy to use. The cam has an impressive boot time of about 2 seconds, which was surprising. In fact, it's so quick that the splash screen which shows the manufactures logo, can't even be read completely before the system boots. I went from opening the screen to actually recording in 4 seconds...pretty good IMO. Battery run time was also impressive at just over 2 hours, and a little research online will provide you will options on buying a replacement if needed, despite what some other reviews have stated. It comes with a nice neoprene holster for hip carry, which I though was very nice for storage as well. Nice attractive box with software and instructions. The cam does not come with an HDMI cable, which I found a little insulting. Come on now, I just bought a (supposed) HD cam and didn't even get an HDMI cable..I get RCA cables instead? This is like buying a pair of eye glasses with no lenses..EPIC FAIL! The fact that no HDMI cable was provided only reinforces the fact that this cam is not true HD quality.

Overall, 3 stars...my cell phone takes better footage! Would be good for something to throw in the glove box in case you need it, or to give to your kids for YouTube, but for quality video look elsewhere. You can get much better for 20-30 bucks more. I really wanted to like this cam, and I could have lived with some of the cons, but the jumpy footage and overly grainy low light performance killed it for me. Ohh well, another return to Amazon, which was a pleasurable experience...they paid my return shipping even though the cam worked as it was supposed to! Thumbs up for Amazon's customer support, as usual!
I'd know that is a very cheap camera, but the results are quite poor.
The slow motion functionality degrades a lot the quality of the image.
The time lapse function records only a few seconds of footage, like 20-30 seconds (it's not because card space)
There is no way that is a 1080p recording.
Any ways, the grip is gentle, the design nice, but is a very overpriced camcorder for the money it cost.
I'm so frustrated with this camera. Every time I'd try to record something, it froze after 20 or 30 seconds, and I've used different kinds of SD Cards. This camera is a piece of garbage.
