Great Value HD Camcorder

 

I purchased the unit to keep as a small lightweight and inexpensive HD quality video and still camera. I have used it for a few months now and have to say that I am not disappointed. The quality of the HD video is good, while the still images are...

Dead after 3rd use

 

Bought camera 2.5 months ago and used only twice. On third use camera would simply turn off when pressing the record button. Special occasion that was missed due to poor electronics. Battery life is poor as well. Make sure you have plenty of batteries.

Not worth the Money - poor sound quality

 

I wanted a Flip video camera for Christmas. My wife went to our local Radio Shack store but they were sold out. The salesperson showed her the DXG-569V 5.0MP Digital Camcorder by DXG which was the same price. I tried out the camera and the video was...

Good video/picture, but not for everyone

 

This camcoder is not for everyone and I want to make that very clear from the beginning. Video/picture in low light conditions is not the best and will be poor choice for shooting indoors.

GOD, I hope they'll take it back!

 

My digital camera takes better video, and is easier to use and download. No matter what I try, I can not access the videos anywhere but the screen. I was smart enough to buy additional SDHC memory card, but I will also have to buy a special card reader...

This is the WORST camcorder ever!!!!!

 

Okay...this is the absolute worst camcorder/camera I've ever used. When in picture mode if you want your hand to be comfortable while hitting the button chances are your hand will be covering the flash assuming you turn the flash on. The construction...
