Perfect for a vlogger or youtube fanatic
on 15 November 2011
This camera is a pocket camcorder aimed at the youtuber/vlogger market, it is not a full blown all singing all dancing device for high speed sports recording.
The 1080p mode is only 25 fps so this is only of use if you are sat down pretty still and talking because any real movement will cause the recording to look poor.
The 720p mode is 50 fps and this the mode I use with my camera, it allows for enough movement and should easily be able to be used to follow a child moving around or playing.
Indoor performance is good compared to my laptops in built webcam, bush TVD552 camcorder, HTC desire phone recordings. As long as you have a room light and a lamp behind the camera your recordings will be like they would be in bright daylight, or if you just have an overhead room light performance is still good. Audio quality is brilliant for such a little camera, it is clear and loud , however I have only tested indoors.
I have the blue model and the colour is gorgeous.
The device is controlled using a 3 inch touch screen, this is a resistive screen so takes a little gettings used to actually having to apply pressure if you have come from a capacitive screen (such as all high/mid end phones).
Uploading to the PC is super duper easy and involves only popping out the cameras inbuilt USB and plugging it in ... done!
