Ease of Use, Features, Quality, Size
wish it had a remote control
This camera surprised me. I thought the inside area where you place the DVD's was tender & hard to attach, but I was wrong. Its plenty tough enough. And quite easy to attach dvd's. This camera won't work completely with no ability to stream with Windows 7 but you can burn a dvd and play it on your PC dvd player or a regular dvd player. The little disc's quality is pretty good. The closeup's in low light were stellar!

I received this camera as a birthday gift in April 2009. I have taken pictures and made videos. I must say I read some of the other reviews and do not agree that the pictures are fuzzy or the videos are grainy. I have made great quality videos and gotten clear pictures. I love my camcorder and have used it so much this school year. As for the price, I think we've gotten more than expected.

After reading the reviews, I wish to remind people to read the manual when problems turn up like fuzzy pictures, etc. I just bought one of these cameras and so far any problems I had were solved by reading the manual. For example, in reference to what another reviewer said was a problem, the manual says you can keep using the mini disk after you finalize it. You don't have to start over, reformat, etc.
Easy to use and small enough to carry

For the price this is a very user friendly camcorder and is easy to maneuver. We took it on a family vacation to Yellowstone and used the discs to record from the camcorder and used the memory stick for the still images. I was extremely disappointed in the still images. When we came back from our vacation and I looked through our pictures after having them printed I was shocked and how poor the quality was. Whatever you do, do NOT use the still images portion of the camcorder. The pictures were very fuzzy and the color was bad. That being said, when we watched back the video portion of our vacation we were quite pleased with how it turned out. The recordings were fairly clear and crisp. A little grainy but all in all the video turned out quite well. Again you have to consider the price. You are not going to have excellent quality for the price you're paying but the camcorder is very user friendly and small enough to carry around with you. I highly recommend this product as long as you just plan on using it to take videos.
