"Disappointing and far more limited than the review says"2.0 starson by dlsellers
Pros: Small, sleek-looking. 8 GB is great capacity. Easy to use. White is easy to find in a purse full of stuff (I'm really digging here).
Cons: Zoom feature is pretty pathetic. Front cover starting sliding off after second use. Shooting screen width/depth is completely inflexible.
Summary: Bought the 8GB/2-hour white flip video.
The cnet editors -- and moreso the product -- disappointed me on this one. I knew I was buying a product that Cisco is no longer putting any effort into, but having read the reviews, I thought I'd give it a try.
YUK. POOEY. BLECH.
The way the shooting screen (my words) works, your subjects need to be laid out horizontally, or you need to hold it the other way so they're vertical -- throughout the video (or you'll be making your viewers dizzy); combined with the pathetic zoom feature, this means a highly restrictive shooting environment. (Not really how shooting video usually works.) I, for example, am often shooting dogs at play. They jump, they lie down, they don't stay in the frame very well.
The front cover started sliding off on second use, so now I have to tape the darn thing (so much for sleek-looking and elegant...).
Sure, it's easy to use, and easy to plug right into the USB opening on your computer (though not if you have other USB devices right next to it).
If you don't care how your subjects are framed or where they're cut off in the frame (if they move or stand up or whatever puts them out of the horizontal frame), this might be okay for you. I definitely don't use it like I thought I would.
Do Not Recommend, particularly at any price above $85.
