I purchased this camera for my husband as a Christmas Gift but I was disappointed at how small it is. I was looking for a full size video camera since my husband fancies himself a videographer, and I thought this might work. The picture quality was ok, bu the size was so small the tripod dwarfed it. Will keep looking.Read More
I bought this camera to replace one that had quit working. I was suprised by how light-weight it is. I record my son's ice-hockey games and my daughters horse shows and am very pleased with the quality of the video. This is a nice, inexpensive camera that is easy to use.Read More

Hello AJL, we do not currently have a microphone for this camcorder, our inventory is changing everyday. Thanks for shopping with us!
Hi, I have two of this model and am using it to record about an hour worth of lecture each week. However, playback on my computer from the recordings is in 20 minute segments. The video recorder stays on and records the entire lecture, but playback is limited to 20 minute increments. I keep getting 20 min, 20 mins and like 9 mins instead of 49 minutes straight. Help!
Hello AJL, The maximum continuous recording time is under 20 minutes. The maximum video file size is 1.8GB. When a video recording time is more than 20 minutes or a video file exceeds 1.8GB, a new video file is created automatically. This is an internal function built into the camcorder. Have a great day!
