To have a product that does not work with Microsoft Windows is ridiculous

Top Marks...

 

After reading the printed user manual, and consulting the online e-manual, I found that the trial results were excellent in all respects. The camcorder is very light and fits snugly into the palm of the hand. I am using a micro SDHC class 10 card.

Good all round camcorder

 

Great video quality. Easy to use straight out of the box. Not easy to view the monitor in sunlight and miss not having a viewfinder. Very pleased with the camcorder overall though.

Small but powerful

 

There is product on the market which states " it does exactly what it says on the tin". This product does more than it says on the description. Small but a powerful camera to have. Love it - love it
