"Ease of use and compact size makes the RCA Small Wonder camera a joy to use."4.5 starson by bgcp2001
Pros: Small, light weight, idiot proof, inexpensive
Cons: Like most display screens, the view finder is hard to see outside.
Summary: I've owned a video camera of some type or another for 20 years now and have used them about 50 times total. Kids birthdays and holidays mostly. Not quite the usefulness that I imagined when I first purchased them. It turns out that I do not like to haul around a case with all of the equipment necessary for a full sized camcorder. Also, all of the footage that I shot with my previous camcorders are still on the little tapes because I never could seem to transfer it to my computer.
I purchased the RCA Small Wonders a week ago and have had a blast using it since. In less than a day with it I was uploading my clips to the internet and sending video e-mails. It's that easy! On a small screen or window the image quality is better than average to good. When the footage is shown on the big screen it looks a little washed out and grainy. If your looking for a quick and easy way to capture moments and send them in e-mails or post them to the internet then the Small Wonders is an excellent choice at $129.
The internal memory will hold about 30 min. of "high quality" video so it would be a good idea to get a SD card for extra memory. I spent an additional $35 for a 2G and can record up to 2.5 hrs. in "HQ" mode. Rechargable batteries will also save you in the not too distant future.
