    Colour Name: Red Verified Purchase
    Wonderfully easy to use gadget, and excellent quality films or pictures, viewed either on the PenCam screen or on my Apple computer. 4 GB and one hundred minutes of non-stop recording time, shorter battery time if you record on and off (battery recharged via USB to computer). Perfect size to hold or slip in my handbag.
    BUT the instruction booklet is difficult to follow and incomplete. You can easily view your films on the PenCam tiny screen by pressing one button, the tiny views are very clear but you don't hear your voice talking. The problem arises when you want to download your films on your computer to look at them. It took me one hour to navigate from one window to another with incomprehensible technical data to chose from. In the end everything was downloaded and the images (films and photos) on my Apple were top quality. I backed them up on a DVD-R to keep a safe copy. BUT if my recorded DVD-R plays on my Apple, it won't play either on my PC " or on my DVD player. It says 'disk unsupported format', or it only shows one view, the first still frame of my first film!!!
    Also, each time I stop recording and start again later it creates a new "file". When I view my films on computer I have to click on each 'file' individually to play it as a film. It would be better if it played automatically one 'file' after the other without interruption. Maybe it is possible to do that, but I am unable to find out how.
    I phoned the Service Support Hotline number for UK and got a German person only able to stutter "colleague absent, e-mail".
    An expert in electronics could probably solve all these problems and get this wonderful gadget to reproduce effortlessly what it has recorded inside its mechanism. As a user in her mid-seventies I do my best to educate myself, but my ageing brains has its limits.
    In conclusion, 'je ne regrette rien'. I love my PenCam and one day it will return my love unconditionnally!

    I was hopeful this item would be genuinely useful and so it is. I can take high definition videos as easily as blinking. I can then quickly transfer them to You Tube for family and friends to enjoy. The build quality is fine. It's best to ensure there is plenty of light when making your videos, but when outside in bright daylight you will struggle to see the small display screen. Despite this I would recommend this product as excellent value for money.

    Very compact and light, with a clip for pocket or belt (but this is rigid plastic so you have to be careful not to snap it). Can be used 'discretely' by hanging it off your belt with the lens facing outward or plug in the earphones and pretend you're using it as an MP3 player (which it is) while snapping away.

    Quality of videos and stills is very good for a device of this sort.

    As others have commented, the printed instructions are rather inadequate, though people used to connecting USB devices to computers should be able to use most functions.

    A printed addendum documents additional software (provided on the device) to facilitate video upload to YouTube. I haven't tried this.

    The 3" CD supplied includes a PDF copy of an E-Manual which is mostly like the printed one, with a little extra information, such as how to connect the unit to a PC or TV.

    The CD also includes a Quick Time program to read the videos (if you don't already have a suitable program on your PC), and Media Impression, which seems to be a program to organize your photos, videos and music. I haven't installed it, and it would be better if they explained what it did rather than just expecting you to install it.

    One thing they don't explain anywhere is how to use the device as an MP3 player, which IMO is more useful than the associated voice recorder. The sound through the supplied (earbud) earphones is very good, but I found to necessary to fit foam pads (not supplied) or they keep falling out of my ears. Foam pads also improve the sound.

    Another thing not explained is how to set the date/time so the files don't all come out with a 01/01/2098 time stamp.

    Colour Name: Blue Verified Purchase
    Ridiculously easy to use. I generally spend hours, days even, fighting with online tutorials and emailing helplines, or cursing impotently at tiny screens which offer ten bewildering options and no obvious way of selecting any of them (my last camera did that) by which time I’ve pretty much gone off whatever the thing may be (i.e., my last camera...) But this comes out of the box, charges, switches on, takes incredible, pin sharp HD pictures and movies, in not particularly good light, with excellent zoom, and transfers them to my Mac effortlessly and without grief. (This is, basically, unheard of.) Perfectly hand-sized, light but sturdy-feeling, not nasty plasticky nonsense, and the only way they could make it easier to use is if they took the pictures for you. £25? Too good to be true. Except it is. Ace. (Not like my last camera.)

    The PenCam takes pretty good pics but the video recording needs practice. When using it outside it was very difficult to see the screen - the brighter the sun the blacker the screen got!
    I got this camera because I thought it would suit me and my disability. I think I made a mistake as I've done better using my mobile phone.
    If you're looking for a camera that is compact and will be used mainly indoors then this is for you, otherwise look elsewhere.
