  • Nice and compact.

    Will probably use it only when attending different types of parties or weddings. Where my I phone would not be needed.

  • Disappointed With This Purchase

    I was looking for a small camcorder that I could carry around with me at all times. This one did not work for me. The video was great. The audio is almost non-existent. I recorded in my normal voice and could barely hear the audio when played back. I recorded using a very loud voice. I was unable to hear it when played back. I tried contacting the company to ask if the audio could be adjusted some way. I received no return phone call. I am preparing the camcorder for return.

  • Haven't decided yet

    I ordered 3 of these. One for myself and 2 for Christmas gifts. Love the size. So small and compact. But feels cheap. The zoom,isn't much to write home about. On the fence as to whether it stays or goes back.
