The camcorder is supplied with a 2GB micro SD card Class 2. This is not a fast enough write speed to capture the data being recorded by the camera (quoted at 30 frames per second). I found the video capture to appear to jump every so often when using the supplied Class 2 card. This has improved on using a Class 6 card but supplying the camera with a card which is not capable of capturing data at the speed of the camera is disingenuous. Expect to spend a further £10 to get the appropriate 4GB Class 6 card.
Nor does the camera actually record at 30fps. It appears to be somewhere between 20-25 fps. The 30fps quoted in Amazon's spec for the device is not correct; this is confirmed by Veho on their website tech support and spec pages. Amazon (and for that matter any vendor) should not be advertising this as a 30fps camera. It would appear Veho probably did so originally but have since retracted. They now state 25.
It's a nice little product and ideal for my purposes but I felt a little misled to discover these two issues with it after purchase. But I would still have bought it.
