4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Display

Like most of the other small sensor size camcorders that are a comparable age to the CAM3001, the Coby CAM3001 has a built-in display.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other video cameras with a built-in display currently available including the Panasonic HDC-TM900 which has better reviews.

Has One Cable Included

The Coby CAM3001 has a greater number of included cables than most video cameras that are a similar age to it. The most commonly found cable included is USB, but this cable included is not found on this Coby video camera. The cables included AV are also found on this Coby camcorder.

Chart Edit

JPG Image Format

This video camera has a JPG image format, which is the most frequently found image format on small sensor size camcorders that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Small

When compared to other small sensor size camcorders that have been around for around the same time as the CAM3001, the depth of the Coby CAM3001 of only 27.9 millimeters is one of the smallest. The average depth of camcorders that came out around the same time as the CAM3001 is 140mm.

14 Reasons Against

Quite Small Screen Size

The screen size of the CAM3001 of only 1.44 inches is one of the smallest amongst camcorders of this type and age. The average screen size of video cameras of this type and age is 2.9".

If this Coby video camera screen size is too small for you then you might want to consider the Rollei S-30 (£78.99) (1.5" and higher rated).

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The CAM3001 does not have an image stabiliser, unlike most of the other video cameras of a comparable age and type to the CAM3001 which have an image stabiliser.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have an image stabiliser to this camcorder and we think the Canon Vixia HF M40, or the Panasonic HDC-TM900 is also worth considering.

Quite Small Maximum Memory Card Size

Camcorders of this age and spec have maximum memory card sizes of between 8GB and 130GB. When compared to other small sensor size camcorders that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed, the CAM3001's maximum memory card size of only 8 gigabytes is one of the smallest.

Camcorders with a larger maximum memory card size that might also be worth considering include the Rollei S-30 (£78.99) (32GB and higher rated).

Not Full HD

The CAM3001 is not Full HD. Most of the other small sensor size camcorders that are a similar age to the CAM3001 do are Full HD.

If you want a camcorder that is Full HD then you might also want to consider the Vixia HF M40, or the Legria HF R406 both from Canon.

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

The CAM3001 does not have an HDMI port. Most of the other camcorders of this type and age do have an HDMI port.

We think you might also be interested in other camcorders which also have an HDMI port including the Canon Vixia HF M40 which is also higher rated.

Very Small Digital Zoom

At only 4 times zoom factor, the CAM3001 has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other similar spec camcorders that are a comparable age to the CAM3001. The smallest digital zoom of small sensor size camcorders that were released more than two years ago is 1.5x and the biggest is 3,500x.

Camcorders with a bigger digital zoom that might be worth considering include the Canon Legria HF R56 (£264.35) (57x and higher rated).

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Most video cameras of this age and spec do not have an interchangeable lens. The Coby CAM3001 is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.

We think you might also be interested in alternative video cameras which also have an interchangeable lens including the Sony HVR-Z7 which is also higher rated.

Very Short Battery Life

The battery lifes of small sensor size camcorders that came out around the same time as the CAM3001 range from 1h to 150h. With a battery life of only 1.5 hours, the Coby CAM3001 has one of the shorter battery lifes amongst camcorders of this age.

If you are looking for a longer battery life then you might want to consider the Canon Legria HF R406 (1.75h), or the Zoom Q4 (£199.99) (3h) which also has a higher rating.
