Categories > Pocket Camcorders > GE > GE DV1 Waterproof/Shockproof 1080P Pocket Video Camera Aqua Blue

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Leaked now not working
Pros: Easy to use. Can take pictures while filming video.
Cons: No image stabilization, so videos are jumpy. Seal around openings leaked and camera had a lot of water in it. I was wading in the ocean so camera was never under more than 2 feet deep. I had for almost a year with limited use. Only was used because it was "waterproof". Overall the pictures are much better from non-waterproof cameras.
Other Thoughts: Poor waterproof seals. Pictures and video is sub-par when compared to a non-waterproof camera. Not recommended.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Good Value
Pros: Compact and easy to use. Can capture still photos at double movie resolution while flming. Good selection in video format and quality, but otherwise has minimal features.
Cons: The not-very-sturdy full-size flip-out male USB connector leaves me questioning the durability camera. How long will it take my son to break it?
Other Thoughts: I got this on sale for half off. At full price it is still a good value, but not one to get excited over.

Categories > Pocket Camcorders > Vivitar > Vivitar DVR 426HD Black 1.7" LCD 4x Digital HD Pocket Camcorder

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Will not save photos or video
Pros: The price.

That's it, nothing else.
Cons: Will not save files to the media device (sd card). The camera locks up right after taking a picture or video. Cheaply made. Feels like a thin slice of plastic in your hand.
Other Thoughts: If it worked as it's supposed to I would give 3-4 stars since it's not supposed to be an overly amazing item.

Pros: 720p good quality video, 1080's fps is pretty low. the quality is a little better than the iphone 4's video recording
Cons: does not record at low depths
picture quality is not up to par for picture taking
Other Thoughts: mine came with a nice large scratch on the front of the screen. how hard is it to change the glass screen (over the lcd screen) before sending these off to customers?

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 junk
Pros: none
Cons: cheaply made. save your money for something else.
Other Thoughts: Once recording starts none of the other buttons work. therefore you can't stop the recording without disconnecting the batteries. When that happens the video is lost.

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 First bad experience
Pros: Did not get to see them. besides being cheep.
Cons: The product did not work it just would not turn on. Both of them I bought 2 of the same
Other Thoughts: Vivitar costumer service was not helpful, at the end they just said to return to new egg since they probably will replace the product faster than them.

Categories > Pocket Camcorders > SAMSUNG > SAMSUNG HMX-W300 Orange 5.0 MP 1/3.2" BSI CMOS 2.3" 230K LCD 3x Digital Full HD Pocket Camcorder

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Very disappointed
Pros: Small size, turns on quick, supposedly waterproof. Use this in places you wouldn't take videos from a cell phone.
Cons: This may shoot at 1080p but it isn't crisp at all. Viewing on an lcd panel 20" or larger you will notice edges are blurry.
Other Thoughts: Got tired of waiting for the boat from China to deliver the Panasonic HX-WA3 so I bought this as a refurb for $50 along with a Samsung 16gb class 10 micro sd card.

My other camcorder is a Panasonic HC v700. Obviously the Panny knocks the socks off the small Samsung. I plan to use this near water, i.e. at the lake, ocean, pool, etc.. Will most likely shoot at 720p so I can record over 4 hours of video versus over 2 shooting 1080p.

Guess a person can't go wrong for $50 but my cell phone shoots better video. Just do a search on YouTube and you can see how poor the quality is.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Very nice camera
Pros: -Very high resolution, maybe too high.

-It's got a built in usb connector, no cables necessary.

-It's got a ton of options and settings.

-Video + image for a very low price.

-Photos are dramatically improved by using 'auto tone' in photoshop. (This might be more of a photoshop thing though)

-LCD screen is really bright and detailed.

-You can transfer images/videos directly to pc.
Cons: -usb connector is extremely short, need an extension if you don't want it sitting directly on top of your usb port.

-Images are kinda grainy, but can be fixed with 'auto tone' from photoshop.

-Didn't come with memory card. Will not work without memory card, period.

-Built in software doesn't work when plugged into computer, only works when not plugged in which makes the software pointless.

-Also, video/images are encrypted so you can't just find it by opening up the drive.
Other Thoughts: -Although the software that comes in is useless (for windows 7 anyway), you can still extract images and photos using the default windows 7 popup options.

-This device has its setbacks, but the pros outweigh the cons, and at this price range I cannot complain at all. It is well worth the money, if you haven't already gotten yourself a high quality cam.
