I bought a load of these for use at my school. They are perfect for children to use(or teachers who are not confident with more expensive cameras); they're simple to operate and results can be shown immediately in MS Media Player via a USB connection. The only drawback is that they record in motion Jpeg which means that they need converting if you want to use the clips in MS Movie maker - however free software can be downloaded from the internet which can convert the files quickly and easily; then children's creative side can be truly explored. I would recommend rechargeable batteries because they get through a couple of AA batteries each hour of use.

The latest moviemaker now supports mjpegs so no conversion necessary

My Busbi video camera cost £24.99.

In the packaging came:
The camera
A mini cd (arcsoft video impression 2 editing software)
A USB Cable
2 X AA Batteries
1GB (no brand) SD Card, already in the slot.
Lanyard

The camera is just a little longer than a packet of cigarettes. It's *very* easy to use. The case is made of relatively cheap feeling white plastic. The "Silver" parts of the case are stickers that are adequate (after removing the protective plastic). It feels quite heavy for it's size with the batteries installed. The videos are taken while holding the device in portrait orientation (giving a regular landscape video). It's a bit awkward to hold. There is no lens cap and it's dusty already after one day.

When switching on and off it bleeps loudly. I can't see a facility to step through the recorded videos. you can just replay or delete the last one.

The display is adequate out of strong sunlight, but can be a bit laggy/blurry when the camera is panned. It's ability to adjut to changing light is slowish but adequate.

The SD card slot cover is a poor, loose flap of rubbery plastic. The slot is spring loaded.

There is no tripod or other mount holes.

The video quality is not brilliant, much like from a webcam. The sound quality is poor, with more hissing then I would have expected, and the audio quality is telephone-like.

So would I buy it again? Sure, it's worth £25, but don't expect it to look and feel like a £100 gadget, because it doesn't.

I'd probably have give it 3.5 stars if that was an option.

Children seem to like it.

I bought one of these for my daughter (aged 6) and for my mother. Before I had the chance to tell my daughter how to use it she was filming away and really enjoying it. My mother too has found it easier than any other camera she has had in recent years. She received it on Christmas morning and it has hardly left her wrist since! She can video the dogs and grandchildren and, just as importantly, down load the clips to her laptop all by herself. The quality is more than adequate for what she wants to do - keep a record for herself of fun times with the children, dogs, visitors. I could not rate this product too highly. For the technically challenged it is everything you could as for. It does just what it says on the packet!

Great value for money, robust, easy to use. My children love the fast results and ease of use. PC treats it like a memory stick so once connected with USB, just drag and drop files to computer. TV out is useful too. Good for web-type films, eg youtube clips.

Have now bought class sets for school and am using them to record sports techniques, science experiments, interviews for English and lots more. The kids love them.

Not a sophisticated product, but does exactly what it says on the tin, with ease.

I bought this for my daughter's 8th birthday, it is easy to use and for the price is excellent value, it really is unpack and use. The movie we created was of a far higher quality than I expected for £27 with clear images and adequate sound quality.
As it is basic with no zoom I wouldn't recommend it for special occassions but for a child to create their own films or filming a day at the beach I think it's perfect.
