Ouch, that really is cheap. I suspect that, for that budget, quality video will only really be possible by paying a friend for their time to shoot it with a more expensive camera.

Second hand is looking great - ebay is the place. There are flipcams with 4mb there for 5.
I just think 4mb is too small.

this sort of thing

would do the job .

tis worth looking to see if a camera will take an external mike

either go for a stills camera with a movie option or a movie camera .

optical zoom is more useful than lots of modes etc .

running on aa batteries is much handier than those that need a dedicated built in battery

if not plugged into a pooter the limiting factor is the size of the sd card memory

zoom a bit small but if you are not planning sports footage this sort of thing works much better than a phone etc

no mention of mike internal or external

4x digital zoom is a bit shabby

the lens looks a bit small ie good light only

at a guess it wont be better than a phone

very similar to mine which takes nice snaps and quite nice movies

Will discuss with him indoors.

I'd be worried about the miner marks. They're often brutal fellows, with picks and such. Maybe even dynamite.

Seriously, if this is for your business it will be worth every penny to spend a bit more & get a decent optical zoom lens & some good sound quality.

As dpack says, be wary of how it operates in low light. I had such a camera that cost 100 and it was capable of taking excellent pictures, given the correct light, but every movie looked like it was shot in the 1950's!

not bad and should not be more than 75 tops although it might go high if folk notice that it has 4 sd cards with it

it was still decent value for 125 considering the sd cards

good kit is a lot better value than cheap but rubbish

maybe we are missing the point

if you only need it now and again can you borrow one ?

My NZ helpexer has shown me how to mnake movies with my little digital camera and I can view these on the computer. They too are a bit grainy, but this could have been the light - it was later afternoon in a shady orchard, so Im going to try again on a bright day.

Its the wrong time of year of course now, but its on the back burner. I think borrowing something is a good option.
