14 Reasons Against

Average Expert Reviews

On average, based on ten expert reviews from sites including CNET.com, wired.com, CNET.co.uk and CNET.com.au the average expert rating of this video camera is 67%.

User Reviews Are Average

On average, based on 13 user reviews the average user rating of this camcorder is 69%.

Narrative Only Has Unexceptional Camcorder Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Narrative camcorders and also specifically for Narrative camcorders and found that in both cases Narrative had unexceptional reviews compared to other brands.

A Bit Expensive

Two Narrative Clip owners wrote that it was not cheap. This year Paul Eatwell said on Amazon “An expensive flop” and rated it 20 out of 100. Toptenreviews.com wrote “280 price tag is expensive”.

Poor Connectivity

One customer concluded that it was not easy to sync. Toptenreviews.com wrote in their Narrative Clip review “Syncing is slow”.

Does Not Have an HDMI

Most camcorders that came out around the same time as the Clip do not have an HDMI. The Narrative Clip is no exception to this as it too does not have an HDMI.

It is worth also looking at other video cameras which also have an HDMI including the PMW-F3[pl_3213952_price], or the NEX-FS100[pl_3251340_price] both from Sony or the JVC GZ-R415[plb_3403337_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The Narrative Clip does not have an image stabilizer, although it is worth noting that most of the other camcorders that have been on the market for around the same time as the Clip also do not have an image stabilizer.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have an image stabilizer to this camcorder and we think the Sony NEX-FS100[plb_3251340_price], the JVC GZ-R415[plb_3403337_price], or the Panasonic HC-X1E[plb_3956158_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not Full HD

The Narrative Clip is not Full HD. Most of the other recently released video cameras are also not Full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Most camcorders that have been on the market for a similar time to the Clip do not have an interchangeable lens. The Narrative Clip is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with an interchangeable lens and we think the Sony NEX-FS100[plb_3251340_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

Like most of the other camcorders that are a similar age to the Clip, the Narrative Clip does not have a built-in display.

It is worth also looking at alternative camcorders which also have a built-in display including the PMW-F3[pl_3213952_price], or the NEX-FS100[pl_3251340_price] both from Sony or the JVC GZ-R415[plb_3403337_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most recently released camcorders do not have a night mode. The Narrative Clip is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

The Narrative Clip is not waterproof, although this is within the context that most of the other camcorders that have been on the market for the last year are also not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector
