I have a personal video recorder, but it is so big that I obviously can't carry it everywhere. It used to bother me, because I missed so many great video opportunities, but...Coby to the rescue! Coby offered to send me the Snapp Cam Mini Camcorder 3001 for review, and it has come in so handy! It is small enough I can put it in my purse, or even in my skirt pocket and be ready to roll whenever the need arises. I was a little unsure of the quality of recordings, but my concern was unnecessary. After downloading the footage I was very impressed with the quality and ease of use. The Snapp Cam 3001 requires 2 AA batteries, and they last forever! I put a set in several weeks ago, and have not had to change them out yet. (Unlike my digital camera that goes through batteries more than I go through socks!). It does need an SD/SDHC card for recording, and this makes it easy to just slide the card in the SD slot on my Mac. But, for those that don't have a slot, don't worry-you still won't be fussing with cords. This handy camera has a slide-out USB built right in! It also features a 1.44" LCD screen, and 4x digital zoom. You can edit video and upload directly to Youtube with the included ArcSoft software. You can also view your videos on a tv with the included AV cable! I love having this feature! Oh, and by the way-you can take still pictures with this too!
So, my reaction to the Coby Snapp Cam3001? An excellent tool that I will be using over and over again!

Took this at dusk this evening with the Snapp Cam3001. Zoom works good too!

"COBY was founded by Mr. Young Dong Lee in 1991, with the corporate objective of delivering value, quality, and innovation in consumer electronics products to all consumers at all levels of income. Mr. Young Dong Lee set this objective in the mid 1980's while building a separate, $100+ million wholesale distribution business in New York City. His distribution company sold a wide array of branded CE products. Yet despite the strong growth of his business, Mr. Lee was unhappy that many consumers could not afford the brand name CE products that he sold. Recognizing a significant opportunity to create a new kind of CE company, Mr. Lee created COBY and steadily built consumer brand equities through an ever-evolving product line and by staying true to the company's core idea and objective of delivering consumer value. This simple business objective still remains true today as COBY aims to evolve into a world class CE brand."
