Great little device with lots of added features.

The first thing that hits you is how small the camcorder is, about half the size of a blackberry phone. With the product being so small the screen is also small, but surprisingly clear. Due to it being so small you don't quite get the full appreciation of yor video clip until you up load it. The design is OK. The front of the camcorder is a bit toy like, and the buttons can be a bit awkward to press but nothing that would cause too much issue. The cameo clip is a nice idea, and good to clip on to your laptop for the webcam function.
The set up is easy, and once you find your way around the options changing the setting's is also simple. Easy to download onto your laptop. The webcam takes a little more intelligence, but should be easier enough.
The video camera element has some great features, one being the slow motion function. The only drawback is that when you increase the size of your screen when in slow motion feature the picture becomes a little distorted. The face tracking, and stability function work well. The camcorder mode also has pre recording, time lapse and motion detect function, found not a huge amount of use for them yet but I'm sure I will occasionally use them.
The camera has some good features as well. The smile detect is interesting and great for babies when you don't know when they may just smile! The pictures are very clear, and camera is simple to use.
Now for the summary, overall a good camcorder with some nice features. Whether it's worth paying out around £90 and then for a memory card if you already have a good phone such as an iphone 4 then that is still up for debate! I think the size is a real benefit and something you can always carry around. As the camcorder is probably less breakable than more phones then it's great for being outdoors. Overall a good product.
