Besteker Video Camcorder – Kind of flimsy quality and if you’re looking to film

Edited- january 2, 2017the replacement that they sent me at no cost works perfectly fine and so far my mother has been able to make quite a few videos for her youtube channel. The defective one is still wonking out and the battery connector keeps coming loose, but the replacement has had no issues so far, it is a nice little camera just make sure you inspect it for any issues if you do buy one. Edited – december 28, 2016even though the original unit had some issues with the battery connector, besteker provided me with a replacement unit at no charge, the replacement so far has had no issues with it when it arrived. I will re-update my review when the replacement has gone through some use. Original post – december 24, 2016i got this camera as a holiday gift for my mother. At first she said she loved it because she was in need of a new camera. Exactly 24 hours after i give it to her she says it will not charge. After looking over it i can safely say that the battery connector was not put into place and was not connecting to the battery, with a bit of effort and jamming the battery in and out i was able to get it lined up right and working.

Purchased for a 4th grade school project which is on going. The lcd window hinge failed pretty quickly and will not hold its position.

Very happy with this purchase.

It’s a good video camera, it’s the first one i’ve ever had so i can’t compare it to other ones but i can say the company stands by their products, i couldn’t get the camera to playback the videos and contacted besteker and they sent me a new one without me having to send back the other one that’s a great company to buy from.

This is great for the person who is just starting out recording. Good for home videos and just recording in general. It’s not the best camera in the world but it will do what you need it to do. I like the camera but if you gonna be recording a lot then get a better camera. The main thing i like about the camera is the screen rotates and it’s touchscreen. If you get this camera just know you will need to buy a memory card. Video quality is alright it’s not the best in the world but it will get the job done. As for the sound, it could be a lot better. Prosgood outsidevery easy to operatecons1080p not that goodsun flaringgrainy in low lightyou can notice the shutterwould i recommend this?.

I am impressed with this nifty little device. It arrived on time as promised in a nifty box. I popped open, took stuff out of the box. Hooked things up, set stuff up with date, time, formatted a card, pressed on record. I took the card out, bypassed the usb connection and played back on pc. Impressive quality of 1080p video. Fine tuned stuff more and even better results based on my lighting. Folks if you need camera for the price it is a jewel. I am going to buy the second one. I like to see a wifi connection for mobile device connection.

  • I love it
  • A good video camera.
  • LCD window hinge

Kind of flimsy quality and if you’re looking to film your son’s football games you wont be able to zoom in very well.

Instructions in english were quite difficult to follow for a beginner, someone not a professional photographer.

Although not in the manual, it does have an external mic port. Video quality is good, sound quality is ok. When i contact besteker they were kind to quickly answer questions.
