4.0 out of 5 stars Good piece of kit for the money, 29 May 2010

This review is from: Veho VCC-004-ATOM Muvi Atom Super Micro DV Camcorder - Black (Electronics)
After receiving the Veho Muvi Micro DV Camcorder I could not wait to test it.
Firstly I put it on charge. The manufacturer instructions say it takes 2 hours to fully charge, then the Red LED light goes out after charging is complete. This is not so on the model I received. After 4 hours on charge, the red LED was still alight, so I decided that it had plenty of time to charge fully, so I disconnected it.
I then tested the unit for recording quality. In daylight & bright electric light the unit gave very good picture quality. In street lighting conditions during the night time, the unit still gave adequate viewing quality, although as the unit was moved into darker shadowy condtions, obviously the the picture became more grainy which was to be expected.
I found the sound quality to be listenable, but there seems to be some sort of broken up hissing sound in the background, probably due to a low quality audio recording rate.

Over all though, I found this device to be well worth the price in its build quality, which feels quite rugged, and picture-wise it is quite acceptable.

I have give the Muvi Micro DV Camcorder 4 Stars instead of 5, due to the failure of the charging light to go out after charging is complete & the fairly low audio quality. This is still a recommended buy though.

''While charging the MUVI ATOM Red LED indicator will flash slowly. Once fully charged the red LED indicator will stop flashing and remains constant.'' Quote from instruction manual supplied with item purchased March 2012. So seems to have been updated/revised now to reflect correct operation.
