This camcorder boasts digital camcorder, camera and an mp3 player combo! It is however very hard on most pockets as it is usually priced in excess of 400 pounds, though bidding for it on eBay tends to yield much lower pocket damage. However if you are really into photography or just want some pro and easy to handle equipment to take snapshots for special occasions yourself, then this is a prime product for you.
For those of you who dont understand the megapixel mullarky, its just really high picture resolution (5 megapixels) that is crisp and graphically magnificent for every possible picture. You can take still pictures to mount on the wall and hook your camera right up to your printer via the handy cable (direct printing support), or you can take audiovisual clips of anything your heart desires as it has a very sensitive microphone (so dont mutter while filming!) and has a digital zoom of up to 4X seamless zoom-in-close-up-shots!
To add to the techno-wizardry of this spectacular device, mp3 player capabilities have been incorporated into this beauty of a machine for easy listening and super vibes. although, if you want to be able to use all of these functions i recommend you buy an extra one or two flash memory cards to hold all excess data and music as the supplied 32 mb internal memory is almost certainly not enough to keep you going through a full length holiday and is compatible with the device.
The device also has a 2.5" touch panel hybrid LCD screen, a high quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, NightShot Plus infrared recording system and USB streaming capabilities for broadcasting live video and audio over the Internet. So if you know what that means and it appeals to you, good for you. In other words, it is just of a very high standard of quality and has many functions available to you.
I would also recommend getting 1 extra 512mb or 2 extra 256mb flash memory cards if you prefer to swap cards when one is full, and use the other one while downloading (or printing) the contents of the other one. This would come to around about 70 pounds extra however, and may be a let down if you dont have the cash and get stuck with only enough memory for limited pictures and recordings. So it is pretty essential. The extras you get though, are excellent such as the carry bag, tripod, earphones, lithium-ion battery, power adapter, AV cable, and manual, and the installation disk and software is user-friendly for either techno-wiz or bimbo, so no one should have problems or any difficulties with it whatsoever.
Exceptional camcorder combo if i ever saw one, without a doubt one of the best buys in audivisualry. Its practically a breakthrough! Thanks for reading, you might be interested if your a keen photographer.
