Why Has it Scored 84?

owners report that it has brilliant user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this camcorder to others. Looking across the entire KitVision video camera range, the average reviews for all KitVision camcorders are also excellent.
This camcorder is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer camcorders 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.
