Good for beginners
on 10 February 2010
Firstly, This video camera is good for beginners in the video making industry. However as a product in itself it is terrible. I found that when I was recording, and then playing it back on my computer I saw faint coloured lines appear across the screen.
Secondly, It has NO image stabilizer, so everything that bumps the camera WILL appear on the video. The zoom is terrible and jumps infront instead of slowely zooming in and out. If your looking to make tutorials (e.g standing infront of the camera, you will need to buy a seperate microphone as this picks up sound terribly.
Last but not least, the videos record in .MOV (Quicktime) which is bad for audio. Eventhough the product details inside the box said it came with converters... I couldn't find the disc. The sound however IS stereo.
I give this product 3 out of 5.
Please Note: I got my camera from Argos, so it may be different to the one advertised here.
