Voted HOT but they tend to be this price often now. Gutted I missed out on the £25 ones a few weeks back.

True. I bought this a few weeks ago from Amazon for roughly the same price (£49.99) and they were also offering a free rubber case to go with it, so personally this is neither hot nor cold for me. I'd still say it's worth the money though if you're just after a cheap pocket camera that does the basics.

It displays a little battery symbol which obviously shows you how much battery life you have remaining. I haven't really used mine much yet, but I have noticed that the battery status went from being full, to half empty, to full again in the space of a day once, so I'm not sure how honest it actually is. As for the memory space, I use an 8GB SD card, as the internal memory for it is rubbish, and as far as I know there is no way of knowing how much space remains on it unless you connect it to a PC.

No to both


Someone's given you false info my friend...

I got this when it last came on HUKD at £49.99 and it's brill for the money but a BIG difference between outdoor (amazingly good in HD) and inside/low light/artificial light (very grainy).

For the money I'm really happy. One small negative, pressing the buttons (particularly the zoom - zoom lol it's 2x I think) makes a small clicking sound as you press, which becomes a HUGE clicking sound when you play back on TV or PC.

But as I said, for £50 it is well worth it (IMHO).

Its worth noting that it takes normal AA batteries, so you can always carry a spare set if you're likely to need a longer battery life than it'll give normally. This I believe is a major benefit over other cameras.

Kodak also give you a spare battery door, knowing that given you'll be taking them out pretty often it'll wear and not latch that well. Nice to know they've thought about this in advance.

Its also got a 720 60fps mode which is nicer if you're doing fast motion stuff.

The whine on the audio isn't that nice though, and as per my post on the £19.97 thread, make sure you've got the latest firmware to fix audio and Windows 7 issues. ]http//ww…272

Very good points! I'd also advise anyone who buys this to update the firmware immediatly, as it does solve the sound issues. Strangely though, after updating mine, the noise didn't vanish until I'd recorded my second video. So I wouldn't panic if the noise is also still there for you once you record your first video... Just make a short random recording straight after the update, delete it, and you should then be sorted for future recordings ;-)
