It was April 2017 when Coby released the CAM3001.


Display

Quite Small Display Diagonal

The display diagonals of video cameras of a comparable age and type to this camcorder range from 1.4" to 4.3", and the average display diagonal is 2.9". When compared to other comparable spec camcorders that have been around for around the same time as this camcorder that we have assessed, the display diagonal of the CAM3001 of only 1.44 inches is one of the smallest.

If this video camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the Rollei S-30 (£78.99) (1.5" and higher rated), or the Zoom Q4 (£199.99) (2" and higher rated).
