5.0 out of 5 stars Great for children, 12 Mar. 2008
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Busbi BUSCD0001 Point And Shoot Digital Camcorder (Camera)
I bought a load of these for use at my school. They are perfect for children to use(or teachers who are not confident with more expensive cameras); they're simple to operate and results can be shown immediately in MS Media Player via a USB connection. The only drawback is that they record in motion Jpeg which means that they need converting if you want to use the clips in MS Movie maker - however free software can be downloaded from the internet which can convert the files quickly and easily; then children's creative side can be truly explored. I would recommend rechargeable batteries because they get through a couple of AA batteries each hour of use.

The latest moviemaker now supports mjpegs so no conversion necessary

Hi Glynn

You are being very helpful!
I have just started a film making club at my a primary school - do you know if imovie supports jpegs? We only have macs. Thank you!

I'm an IT coordinator as well at a prep school - i use them with year 7 & 8 but some teachers have used them with year 6 - with these cameras you don't have to hold the button down - i don't know the ones you have have (except seen them in supplies catalogues and they always looked/sounded poor value for money) but these are so simple - the most complicated bit is teaching year 6 MS moviemaker! but years 7 & 8 pick it up quicker than fellow teachers!

Hi I would say that the Digital Blue cameras are a lot less easier to use. I've used these cameras with children from Y1 (5 and 6 yr old). I would suggest resting it on something to avoid camera shake. These cameras are brilliant and I've also used them for longer than 10 minutes at a time and had no trouble. I think the quality is excellent for the price.
