1.0 out of 5 stars No External Microphone Jack, 18 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aiptek AHD A300 1080P Full HD Camcorder with Digital Camera / Voice Recorder (Electronics)
Overall the image quality of this item is good for the price as is the battery life - it's what I would expect from a cheap and cheerful little camcorder. That being said I have very little experience with camcorders. My other camcorder was a DV182 so I'm very easily impressed.

The advertised External Microphone Jack, left me with the impression this camera was in a different league (up with the £100+ camcorders) but this camera is misrepresented in that it has no external microphone socket and the sound quality of the internal microphone is somewhat tinny, yet sensitive enough to pick up the breathing of the person holding the camera. So it sounds like your subject has been inhailing Helium while being filmed by Darth Vader.

If this camcorder had an external microphone socket at this price I would have given it five stars and a good review but its microphone seriously lets it down.

The image even when held in the hand on zoom is fairly stable.

For nomal activity there is very little blurring although I don't recommend it for filming sports in 1080 mode. It's not bad in 720 at 60fps.

It comes with a socket for a small tripod but no tripod is supplied with the camcorder.

The back of the camcorder needs a little force to remove.

There is a very helpful customer care line if you have trouble with the device.

I don't think the misrepresentation was deliberate as it does have an external AV socket for AV OUTPUT only.
