Yeah, ok, this review only gives it a slightly above average 6 out of 10, but this was when it cost over £200 and even then average owner's rating is 9 out of 10 and some other reviews rate it pretty well.

I agree, this review is based on the original RRP i have checked lots of user reviews on play, amazon youtube etc & the majority rate this little camera very highly. It all depends on what your after but for the money this is by far the best HD dual purpose camera you can buy...although i do prefer the ivory colour ;-)
#4
My sister has this camcorder and it is excellent, especially at this price.

Very portable and pretty robust, it's also very quick to start up and start filming.

Definitely hot from me and a likely purchase too. Many thanks OP.
#5
Surely the new Kodak Playsport, at the same price with discount codes, is a better buy? It does 720 @ 60fps and is fully ruggedised. I am trying to decide between the 2 but I can't see why I would choose this over the Kodak at the moment.
#6
great price for this camcorder looked at some you tube videos from this camcorder thought they looked really good lots better than most of the rubbish HD camcorders at this price voted hot
#7
I have been looking at one of these or the Kodak Playsprort too, which does seem better spec. But where can you get a Playsport for this sort of money ? It seems to be £130 everywhere I look ?
Thanks
#8
I bought this on one of the other deals (for [email protected]). For the price it is spectacular - no ifs, buts, whys etc, it's just leagues above any competition if only because it has a proper 5 x zoom not digital....and 5MP camera.....and some form of stabilisation .....(even plays MP3s apparently - not sure why but it can!)

For
great size to stick in pocket
takes 5MP photos
takes snapshots (not sure what res but not 5MP) whilst filming
Good quality video (and pics) in good light
nice size screen
reasonable sound

Against
Doesn't like low light on HQ video - it gets grainy quickly
battery has to come out to charge (yet another cable and box in the luggage)
no lens cover

But I will say again - for less than £100 it's an absolute bargain. Incredibly happy with it so far.

Personally, i'd spend the extra fiver and get it from Amazon just because their Customer Service is so great.

Direct from Kodak store - I used 25% off code direct from this forum (do a search) so got it for £101 delivered. Quite happy with that :)
#11
been looking at one of these for a cpl of weeks - might have to buy it at this price
#12
I have this camera in white and can only echo previous comments, it's a great compact camcorder.

It suffers in low light but I doubt there's a camera in this price range that doesn't.

I much prefer this form of camera over the likes of the flip and playsport. It feels better in the hand and is easier to take a steady picture. The screen rotates so you can even take self portraits.
#13
Hi guys,

Could any of you tell me whether this or these type of cameras have any sort of input ports for say a bullet camera ? :-)

Cheers,

Mike
#14
The Sanyo has an optical zoom which makes it more of a camera. The Kodak only has a digital zoom which is more like a mobile phone.
banned#15
Good find
#16
just looked at the kodak looks horrible looks like a cheap walkman not even an mp3 player :-D

on design this one would win easily
#17
What "class" of SD card is best / preferred / optimal for this ??

Can anyone recommend one from the ebuyer site 8gb or 16gb

cheers........
#18
does anyone know what the output movie file is?

its ok...i've just read the description!!!!!
#19
Bought this camera for £150 6 months ago after doing a lot of research comparing reviews etc to similar camcorders and this one came out on top.

Great camcorder for for £150 so even better value for this price.

I'm using an Asda 4 GB SD card, not sure what class it is, might even be class 2.

I'd recommend a 16GB card as 4GB fills up quite quickly when recording HD.

My output is MP4, I think.
#20
Yeah,
Really like this. Bought it from Amazon a couple of weeks ago as an upgrade for the CG-65 SD which served me well for a couple of years.

Yeah, in low light it's not so great, but neither are any camcorders this side of £500.

For a convenient, good quality, point and shooter which will do what you want a camcorder to do, it's brilliant value. 10 years ago, this would have been unthinkable quality, full stop, for a consumer product.

Sometimes, we get lost in specs and comparisons as opposed to seeing the product for what it actually does :roll:

I've been using it with PNY 16gb Class 4 cards, no probs. These get about 3.5 hrs of video in highest quality setting.
#21
How about the battery performance?

How about the battery performance?


I haven't had it on for extended periods of time, TBH.

But if keeping it running for long periods is a concern, I bought 2 extra batteries from Fleabay for £6.

Is that 1 better, what about the Panasonic camera? Which would be the best for a home video cam?

Can anyone give guidance, I need 1for when I see my daughter, which is going to be in 2-3months. Should I buy now or wait for prices to come down??
#24
I got my wife a nearly identical 'Hitachi' camera (turned out to be a licensed branding) and she has been happy with it and this one has the advantage of electronic image stabiliser.

However I'm a bit shocked at the capacity on the cards at 1hr per 4gb that is either very heavily compressed or for a lower resolution level.
My other HD camcorder at highest 1080p setting only takes 55mins video on a 16gb card and that's meant to be heavily compressed.

I'm starting to film my local football team's games for them. Do you think this camera would be good enough quality? If not, could anyone recommend one under £250?

hmm maybe. But only 30fps? no good for action or sports :( the playsport does 720p @ 60 frames - much better. but only digital zoom which is not so good I guess. But also Image stabilisation which this doesnt have?

Its all trade offs I guess.
#27
How's the performance for photo's ?

I'd have to agree for the price its excellent. I used A Flip Mini HD recently and the image quality indoors was superb but the lack of any zoom ruined it for me.

Oh and batteries are V cheap for this.

Again very good - not DSLR but well up with compacts.

Doesn't look the best at 720p: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQh72X2g3Js

Still a hot price though!
#31
This does have image stabilisation...........................

Thanks for that! Interesting to see the tests.

I stand corrected if it has image stabilisation. at £80 it would be a great deal :)
#34
That sucks also, bought mine, however I'm going on holidays and had to pay next day delivery!

Do you think Ebuyer will price match it?

Anyone? I'm totally clueless on cameras so any advice would be appreciated.

As good a bargain as I think this is I'd say no.

I think you'll need a far more expensive camera to deal with the constant movement and yield acceptable non-blurry footage. TBH even a SD miniDV might not be watchable. It looks easy on the TV but constantly moving video is hard to watch.
#37
Anyone got any info on input ports for say a bullet camera?

Does anyone know how much better this is compared to the Xacti HD700 I bought a couple of years ago. Is it worth a cheap upgrade?
