Small and Mighty


This is a great piece of kit,easy to use and carry in your pocket, instead of some great lump of a video camera which is always in the way. a real joy to use. So many people were impressed by the look and quality of it. a little show stopper.

good value


fantastic value for money. Very small and easily handled rather than some of the small camcorders from Sony JVC etc which are too small. Virtually pocketable which makes it very handy. Ideal for our cruising activities.

Excellent Purchase


I bought this as an upgrade as the one we had was a bit heavier, and it is a lot easier to operate and much lighter,. Its compact and fits neatly in his pocket. He is well pleased with it. Thank you Argos!
