Why Has it Scored 84?

our review analysis indicates that it has fantastic user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this camcorder to others. Looking across the entire KitVision camcorder range, the average reviews for all KitVision video cameras are also excellent.
This camcorder is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer video cameras with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This KitVision camcorder has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Big total megapixels
Lighter than average
Kitvision kitvision escape hd5 action camera
Tiny optical zoom
Only 1024 x 768 pixels resolution

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each camcorder by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the camcorder is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec camcorders come to market, the older camcorders will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
