Paul, Norwich Just point and shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Simple to use. I bought an 8g SD Card and transferring the images to a MacBook was straightforward. The device is lightweight, the viewing screen is quite adequate and reviewing what you've just filmed is easy.
The owner manual [on CD] is clear and the product is good value for money.
Bad points:
Images were disappointing in low light levels [this is probably down to energy saving lamps] Outdoor shots were clear and the colour was good. I haven't used it enough to fiddle with the settings to improve the indoor images

John, Belfast Experienced amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Bought this for my daughter to have some fun with movies. The waterproof feature is good for use in wet weather. Not tried it underwater yet. Not a full camcorder but excellent value for the money
Bad points:
It is hard to find bad points with this device remembering that it must not be compared with a camcorder at 5 times the price. No optical zoom of any sort limits the ability to get a good image from a distance.

Moss, Worthing, West Sussex Just point and shoot

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
it is small and waterproof (ideal as i need it to enter areas where items need to be regularly cleaned before entering). It is ideal for what i need it for - videoing workplace tasks for assessment purposes
Bad points:
the picture quality is pretty poor. The installation program does not run properly so cannot install onto my pc or laptop. only transfers files from the camera hard drive to the pc the same as any other removable hard drive/data storage device. would not recommend for home or personal holiday use.
