Customers Report Good Product Quality

13 owners said in their reviews that this camcorder was good quality.

  • The audio channel separation is very high quality…
    Bob Sherunkle (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Minor wobbles and trembles are ironed out so if you don't have a hugely steady hand you won't get sea sick from watching your videos back and this feature alone justifies it's high price tag Image quality is excellent…
    AndyBSG (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Bare in mind we are talking about a mid range consumer product and as such most non professionals will find the quality is more than acceptable…
    Stuart (Amazon) - November 2015
  • It's fair to say that these stills are pretty poor quality compared to a dedicated digital camera…
    Jago Wells (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Nice camcorder with good quality footage and easy to use…
    Dizzy Rascal (Amazon) - November 2015

  • Minor wobbles and trembles are ironed out so if you don't have a hugely steady hand you won't get sea sick from watching your videos back and this feature alone justifies it's high price tag Image quality is excellent and there is very little blurring unless you are making very fast and erratic movements with a very good and smooth zoom function that is simple to use…
    AndyBSG (Amazon) - February 2015
  • The optical stabilisation is superb…

  • Great price, very neat & compact…
    DM (Amazon) - March 2016
  • Compact and easy to handle…
  • So versatile - yet small and compact will put it to the test on next holiday thanks for quick service…
  • It fit's comfortably in one hand and isn't too heavy and it seems of quite high quality although the little strap that goes round your hand could do with being a bit bigger…
  • Also it has quite a narrow viewing angle and is a fairly low resolution so you wouldn't want to be using it for playback too much…
  • The device is small and light, so its easy to carry around…
    CJ (Amazon) - March 2015
  • In addition, if you really want a compact camcorder, there are much cheaper options than this one which will offer similar or better performance…
    CJ (Amazon) - March 2015

Customers Report Great Technical Features

Four customers who reviewed the product considered that it had good features.

  • The price is justified, as it has the features you'd expect from a camera costing up to £600…
    Bob Sherunkle (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Nice features…
  • The price is justified, as it has the features you'd expect from a camera costing up to…
    Bob Sherunkle (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Not helped by the fiddly screen, which isn't always terribly responsive and features icons small enough to make using them a bit of a challenge…
    CJ (Amazon) - March 2015

Customers Report a Good Screen / Viewfinder

Three owners mentioned in their reviews that this camcorder had a good screen.

  • Touch screen colour is vivid…
    Bob Sherunkle (Amazon) - February 2015
  • It was an ex display camera at only £249.00…
    Dizzy Rascal (Amazon) - November 2015
  • A lot of the buttons are a little too small and the touch screen doesn't seem particularly responsive with it sometimes taking a couple of finger stabs at the screen to press the setting you want…
  • The "touch screen" - Well it isn't - it's a "press hard screen"…
  • From turning on (by flicking out the screen) to recording is lightning quick, though there is some slowdown when the memory card gets a bit full…
  • Not helped by the fiddly screen, which isn't always terribly responsive…
