Neat video camera for cruisers...

I came across a neat video camera while shopping for some music equipment at B&H Photo, one that looked too good to be true. I was prepared to spend several hundred dollars for a video camera to capture some memorable events of this seasons cruises, but this one sells for just $29. Decided that you cannot go wrong at this price, and B&H Photo has a great return policy with most items. Attached are a couple videos shot with the camera yesterday of my Morgan 33 O.I. interior.



The camera is available at Alesis VideoTrack Handheld Audio and Video Recorder VIDEOTRACK

Enjoy,

Gary

I'll just throw in a quick comment vouching for B&H as a great vendor. Particularly in my area (Maryland,) I can select regular UPS Ground and get stuff the next day.

Re: Neat video camera for cruisers...

The only disclaimer I'd add is that this camera only shoots 640 x 480 dpi.

That's what it means by "web-ready" video.

For $29, who cares if you drop it overboard, but don't expect any magic when you try to watch it on your 1920 x 1080 monitors. All the current iPhone and Android phones will shoot higher quality video.

I agree, but the lenses in most cellular telephones are usually lousy, thus the resolution may be considerably higher, but the overall quality is not. And, if you happen to drop that Android over the side it will cost a lot more than $29 to replace. The camera I was originally thinking about buying was a Zoom Q3HD, which provides incredible quality. Got to thinking, though, if the camera caught a blast of saltwater spray it would be all over but the screaming. Zoom — Q3HD

I still may purchase the Zoom Q3HD, but mainly to video my musical performances.

Cheers,

Gary
