E06909 - Kodak Pocket High-Definition Camcorder with HDMI Cable
great pocket camcorder!
I was a little cautious purchasing this camcorder due to the mixed reviews, but I am so glad I did! I read the online manual very carefully and once I figured out where each button was & what it did, I started filming! The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it needs a memory card right away & it does not record sound well. I recorded my chihuahua & yorkie puppy & then some of my son. I watched it back on the computer & it was beautiful picture quality!!! I love that it is so small it fits easily in my purse or pocket & that it comes with rechargable batteries & the charger. You must get a memery card right away though! Without it, it will only record 25 min. I shopped around and the price was pretty much the same as in the stores (after shipping & tax), but with the convenience of easy pay, it is worth it to purchase from QVC. Besides, if you don't like it, QVC will take it back! ( I have A LOT of easy pays!) :)
Recommend with reservations for Mac users
This is a neat little camera and does was it was advertised to do. HOWEVER, if you are a Mac user, and if you want to edit and combine your movies with iMovie, be forewarned that you will have to (1) find either a free video converter or (2) be prepared to spend between $35 and $50 to purchase a shareware or commercial video converter. The MOV format which this camera records in is SOMETIMES recognized by Quicktime Player but it is totally unrecognized by iMovie, part of the iLife suite of software which nearly all MacIntosh computer owners use. Conversion may result in degradation of the video depending on the format you manage to convert to. ALSO, you really will have to spend the money to purchase a AC converter; otherwise you will find yourself charging the batteries A LOT! And, the provided battery charger is SLOW!
I think that this little camera should be considered an expensive toy for a teen or young adult who simply cannot live without posting directly to the sharing websites such as facebook, etc. In fact, the camera is pretty much advertised as such and I suspect that the target market is mostly teens. So far this "inexpensive" little video camera has cost me an additional $100 just to be able to use it as desired. I would have been wiser to spend the extra money to get a better camera compatible with Macs as advertised.
I GOT THIS WHEN IT WAS A TSV AND AT FIRST I WAS NOT SURE HOW TO USE IT I CALL KODAK AND THEY TOLD ME WHAT TO DO AND IT WAS ON MY DAUGHTER WHO HAVE A $400.00 CAMCORDER ALWAYS WANT TO USE MINE SHE LOVE IT SHE HAVE A LITTLE ONE WHEN THEY ARE GOING TO THE PARK SHE STOP BY AND TAKE SO I GAVE IT TO HER AND JUST ORDER ME ANOTHER ONE LOVE IT LOVE IT
Do Not Buy!
I received my camera a week ago and it is terrible. It is very hard to operate and the instructions included do not help. I am sending it back asap.I am disappointed because own other Kodak electronics and I am pleased. This was very poor in quality.
I LOVE THIS CAMERA
Pros: Easy to use, great video quality, some still pictures are hit and miss and not a very good range for zoom but the ease of use makes up for all that. This is my favorite gadget that I have. Comes with everything you need except for a memory card. You'll have to buy one. Highly recommended!!!! Kodak did a great job on this one. Very user friendly and sturdy. Good price for the product.
Cons: Some still pics appear hazy and very limited zoom capacity. Video capacity is only 34 seconds so just buy a memory card and you're set.
THIS LITTLE CAMERA IS THE BEST. MY HUSBAND AND I JUST RETURNED FROM A CRUISE, I TOOK THIS CAMERA AND HE TOOK HIS HI-TECH VIDEO. HE FOUND IT VERY FRUSTRATING AT TIMES BECAUSE I WAS ABLE TO WHIP OUT THIS LITTLE VIDEO CAMERA AT ANYTIME AND CAPTURE WHAT I WANTED, WHILE HE WAS STILL TRYING TO GET HIS OUT OF THE BAG, ON AND FOCUSED. I LOVE IT!!!!! LADIES YOU CAN THROW IT RIGHT IN YOUR PURSE. I WOULD DEFINITLEY BUY ANOTHER ONE AND TELL MY FRIENDS TO BUY IT TOO. AS FAR AS BATTERIES ARE CONCERNED ON A SEVEN DAY CRUISE I USED THIS EVERYDAY AND ONLY HAD TO CHARGE IT TWICE. I ONLY KEEP THE KODAK BATTERIES IN. MAKE SURE THAT YOU GET A HIGHER SD CARD!!!!!
It uses batteries every 5-10 minutes and the pictures are not steady.. it cuts in and out.. would never get again. Never use it!!!
I love this!!!!
I love this! The quality is wonderful with the picture and the sound! I have recommended this to all my family and friends. Its so easy to operate. Some of my co workers saw this and want one now. They think it is the coolest thing. I ordered it in the blue and my husband wants one now in the red! Thank you QVC! Keep the great things coming.
Not so good
I got this a few months ago and had to return it. The sound did not match with the picture. Granted- I am not an electronic wizzard, but I can read directions. and this I couldn't figure out. Picture was not bad for little hand-held. Maybe someone else could make it work right.
Bough this and I am so surprized that this passed quality control! Poor voice recording...poor picture! Very disappointed! Send this one back!
Great little HD Camera
First, for the reviewers who's grip is about lack of instruction, having to "play" with the buttons to figure them out, not sure if we have the same camera or not. To be honest with all who is looking at purchasing this camera, do not let those reviews stop you. It is really easy to use and easy to figure out. Honestly, you do not need the instructions. You press a button once, and you know what it is for. It is simple, point and shoot. The daytime videos are really awesome considering the size of the unit. Low light shooting is not as good, but alot of full size cameras have the same issue. Take this camera on your next outing, to the beach, mountains, motorcycle ride, or just about anything and you will capture great videos. Of course you will need to purcase SD card, common for almost all digital cameras and camcorders. If you are looking for something to carry with you and catch those little momments this is for you. If you are looking to shoot a movie, this obviously is not the camera for you.
Great general use video camera
Got this HD camcorder after returning another one that I had bought on here. (RCA Small Wonder) I already own a Flip Mino Camera but I was looking to jump into some HD shooting. This one was exactly what I was looking for. It is perfect for keeping in your pocket and having available for spontaneous moments. I am in a band and I am enjoying shooting random clips from our shows to upload to the net. The picture in full daylight is really good... Could use a little boost for the low light situations but overall a great deal for the money. I found the audio to be a lot better than the other pocket camcorders but wish that they had an external mic input somewhere. A picture stabilizer would also have been a nice option but that is hardly something to complain about. The software included is fine if ya want to do a quick edit for uploading to Facebook or YouTube.
