A Rough Guide to the Viewcam Z

Advantages: Tiny, standard features, good quality, and cheap.
Disadvantages: Inadequate battery life, and the doom of the 'DEW' error!

This camera is amazing for what you pay, but by no means perfect. I used this camera intensely for a couple of years, and then it died. And I'll let you know why all in good time. First, the positives. Positive stuff is easy for this product. In such a ...

The perfect entry-level camcorder

Advantages: price, size, ease of use, picture quality
