Jazz DV151/152 VGA Digital Video Camera – Great!!!!!!

 we found the ‘jazz dv151′ pocket camcorder at one of the big box stores for somewhat less than the current retail price on amazon. At roughly 1/2 to 1/3rd the price of the flip video ultra series camcorder, 60-minutes (white), it seemed to be worth the risk of buying it as a backup pocket camcorder. Here are my observations:pros:* acceptable video quality *for the price* – it is only 320×240, not even vga (the flip wins hands down)* very good microphone – this was real surprise, the microphone is more sensitive than the flip* has built in usb connector – like the flip, but only usb 1. 1* comes with a usb extension cable* works as a sd card reader when connected to pc via usb (see above)* has video out – can be connected to a tv for playback, cables included* 1. 5’ lcd screen can rotate for convenient viewing while self recording (the flip cannot)* saves files in avi format – no conversion neededcons:* low video quality – it is 320×240 (but again good for the price)* does not come with any memory – you must buy a sd card (up to 2gb) before usingmisc:* uses 2 aa batteries (not included)so for a really inexpensive camcorder, with youtube usable quality, this is a fairly good option. For use in any meaningful way, not so much.

The product was used as a xmas present. The recipient of the product seems to like it. The seller of the product seems to satisfy his client, the postage arrived on time.

Great little camera for the price. Not the best quality, but it worked fine and brought lots of joy to my daughter.

Add or subtract another star depending on what you wanna use this camera for. This camera is pretty much all i personally would ever need. It’s light, can be hidden well, durable (i’ve dropped it a few times and it works fine), and it looks/sounds great, especially in natural lighting. I’ve shot two feature-length movies with this camera, and i edit all the footage on the camera using virtualdub, and i get nothing but compliments about the way my pictures look and sound. Of course, the sound has to be edited a bit on the computer, the mic in the camera is really sensitive. Which is a problem, if there are long moments of silence, you will hear the camera running really loudly as well, but again, all this can be fixed by taking your videos into a computer. So, if you’re looking for a professional camera and have some experience with video editing, this camera is actually quite good. However, if you want an idiot-proof camera that shoots in hd and does all sorts of fancy effects, obviously this isn’t what you want. For people who just want to film home videos and stuff, this camera is quite good as well. I still have a few problems with this.

This was a gift for my daughter. It is a great first camcorder. My daughter is 11 and plays on it all day. The only thing is is don’t move too fast but other then that it works great for the price.

Unfortunately for me, this product proved to be a little to difficult to use. I eventually figured it out, but it took some time – user friendly not so muchwhen i did figure out everything (that i needed) it worked beautifully for the small short clips that i wanted. Unfortunately the battery stopped holding charge and i had to replace it after less than two months. I would probably go with another option if i was buying again.
