RCA Small Wonder EZ205

 

Not surprisingly, the runaway success of Pure Digital's Flip has launched a slew of imitators, each with its own improvementssome more significant than others, but all just minor enough to avoid any significant price jumps. In the end, though, one...

Inexpensive. Expandable memory. Flip-out LCD display adds an extra shooting angle

Poor image and sound recording quality. Bulky. Small, dull LCD. Requires disposable batteries

The RCA Small Wonder EZ205 digital camcorder is a solid choice for YouTube filmmakers who can settle for so-so video capture at a reasonable price. But its design leaves a lot to be desired.

1GB MicroSD card included ; Handy, built-in USB connector

Back-mounted microphone picks up background noise ; Included software is clunky

Nice design touches can't overcome this camcorder's shoddy performance.

RCA Small Wonder EZ205 review:

 

Until the recent arrival of Creative's Vado , the biggest competitor for Pure Digital's Flip Video products in the mini camcorder, straight-to-Web video arena has been RCA's Small Wonder. While the video quality of the Small Wonder hasn't quite...

Improved low-light performance over its predecessor; flip-out LCD; ships with a removable 1GB memory card.

Design isn't as slick as its competitors; no rechargeable battery; video quality is still fairly mediocre; bundled software isn't Mac compatible.

RCA's Small Wonder Pocket EZ205 has some significant advantages over its competitors--but it has a lot more drawbacks.
