For an affordable and fun HD video camera the DV1 is a great choice. However, it won’t appeal to a serious videographer and is better suited for family holidays

GE DV1 review


Shopping by specs can result in a very disappointing purchase. The GE DV1 rugged minicamcorder is waterproof to 16 feet, shockproof to 5 feet, and dustproof. It records full HD-resolution video at 30 frames per second as well as at 720p at 30 or 60fps,...

The GE DV1 Pocket Video Camera is small, inexpensive, and water- and shockproof.

The DV1 captures motion poorly, is slightly confusing to use, has no video editing/sharing software, and uses a nonremovable rechargeable battery with a short life.

The rugged GE DV1minicamcorder is OK for casual Web videos. If you need more than that, look elsewhere.

GE DV1 Review


The GE DV1 is one of the best pocket camcorders on the market. It's exceedingly tough and has well above-average image quality. It's not one of the most affordable pocket camcorders we reviewed, but its quality compensates for its price tag.

It's waterproof and shockproof.

This camera lacks a flash.

The GE DV1 is rugged and has above-average video quality. It's one of the best pocket camcorders on the market.

Low weight & bulk. Clear pictures. Fits nicely into handbag.

Vwry easy to use, ideal to pop in your pocket and take anywhere rain or shine! Quality is quite good in reasonable light levels

Not so good in low light

Waterproof, nice design, can take photos while recording movies, can attach a floating strap. Acceptable picture but not quite such clear image as camera costing £100 more. Good value. Survived Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day sea swims!

Less versatile having no optical zoom and no flash

Love it. Great colour and style. Very good value. Does what it says on the box, although not used under water yet.
