Summary: I purchased this camera from a well known high street retailer for £50.00..( in a sale ) I wasn't expecting too much by way of performance at this price... "It met all my expectation's.., although I kept coming back to it..,time and time again..
Summary: I find this camcorder wonderful. I purchased a similar, but bigger version for work, but settled on this version for my personal use and after a 4 week holiday I was not disappointed. The light makes a huge difference and is a wonderful addition, helping in low or uneven lighting conditions.
Summary: bought this for four reasons - up and coming daughters wedding - for use by my wife (so she can carry it in her habdbag) - good price - good reviews to say I was dissapointed is an understatement, but I shouldn't have been surprised as it was a Toshiba.
Summary: I got the camcorder, and it worked fine until I inserted my newly bought 8GB memory card. I couldn't take pictures or video, and I couldn't even turn it off. I'm currently looking into formatting the memory card, but it is simply not acceptable that the camera gets into such a state.
Summary: The picture in good light is excellent provided you can hold it still (I use two hands, one on the handle, one on the screen), but then it comes with a mini tripod as standard which may help for some shots.
Summary: I would only buy this camera if: 1. You are not planning to do much low-light filming. It is OK indoors on a bright day, but as soon as the sun goes down, this camera is next to useless. Apparently all cameras at this price point suffer from the same problem. 2.
Summary: after reading other reviews I did wonder if product would for me. When a neatly package arrived I was impressed with quality. Then after a short 2hr charge was able to take photos. Even got a macro setting and the quality is much better than expected.
Summary: My wife and I decided to get a camcorder to capture some footage of our baby which is due soon. I picked this camcorder and my wife got it me for Christmas. I took it on a 4 day skiing trip to France, and found the battery life to be awful.
Pros: Good price
Cons: Fiddly to hold and operate. Battery life is awful !!!
