A recent purchase for the classroom. Available at Sam's Club unless they sell out again. It is a very easy to use camcorder. Point and shoot. Slight zoom feature. Good quality. Easy to plug into the computer to download video from the camera. Save for use in Movie Maker or edit the film with software on the camera. I would highly recommend this for classrooms wanting an easy video production alternative.
Reviews posted on Amazon are mixed. A lot of five stars, a few one stars.
