PURE PocketDAB 1500 Leather Case - Black by Pure
1.0 out of 5 stars Rotten, 6 Feb 2013
Like the other low-star reviews, I found this product to be impractical. The on/off button is covered up, whilst the screen in not protected - and since the screen is polycarbonate or some such soft plastic, it means you need to buy a phone screen cover and cut it to shape in order to prevent scratching by almost any object.

The steel spring clip is strong, but due to the shape, still manages to slip sideways if worn on a belt, meaning that in normal use, it has a tendency to jump off when you least want it to - when walking or running for a train et.c.

I was recommended to buy a Panasonic over the H30 model, but the H300 on Amazon was the same price as the PANA so I believed that it would be an improvement. As it turns out, the reviews on the professional websites have it about right: the quality and functionality of this model make it slightly above a point-and-shoot offering, whereas to step up a class in HD camcorders you're going to have to pay 70-100 GBP more.

The H300 is light, it is relatively easy to use. The W-T slider is a little awkward to use, and combined with the record button is really meant for right-handed users. The screen lacks brightness in good Sunlight, making accurate framing difficult on cloudless days -… Read more
