no sound

Consumer review by: lisa (argos.co.uk)

It's simply useless

 

Buy this video camera only if you actually don't want a video camera at all, but infact, a sound recorder. That's about all It's good for. The picture quality is so bad, even in perfect lighting conditions you can still see nothing!
