Price ; On-screen shooting guides, including Rule of Thirds ; Straightforward, logical button arrangement

No S-video input/output ; No mike or headphone jacks

We really liked the built-in shooting guides, especially useful for beginners (although even experts could benefit from a reminder about the fundamentals). We especially liked the built-in Rule of Thirds shooting guide. This could help you cultivate...

Unbeatable value of any DV camera for your buck.

NOT BAD FOR $200.00 new at ebay!

 

I HAVE HAD THIS CAMERA FOR 5 MONTH. I love the small size considering I'm using a video camera plus a somewhat weak digital camera in one. I have used the camera for pictures more often than for movies. It's very convenient not to have to carry around ...

Small, still pics and video, low price

No so good still pics, specially at night

Our Public Access Show, brought to you by Sharp!

compact design, photo mode, ease of hookup with computer

No light, no night mode, lower quality photo mode

Sharp or Not Sharp???

 

Well in the age of digital everything, we decided to go digital with our video camera. My husband has a DVD burner at work, and we thought what a great way to make our videos with so many options!

View Screen Size ; Single Hand Operation for normal taping

Poor pic quality in darkness ; No Back Light available
