I think I discouraged a lot of people from the Isonic Snapbox HD665 in my initial review. I have to confess: much of my frustration and the low quality of the videos... was pure user error.
At this point, the only negative thing I can say about this camera is that it doesnt have a flat bottom like the original (non-HD) RCA Small Wonder. No worries, I have a mini-tripod that I can use, but that does add a level of inconvenience. Just a bit, really.
The only real thing wrong with this camera is that you need to know a little something about video cameras in order to understand the manual. I do not (obviously). Little things like what the flower, the man and the mountain mean.
Many thanks to your comments, and the personal help from @PaulYoung, I finally have all the settings fixed and shot some video in the right mode (HD) which you see above and below. The video above was taken at night with two lights on, the video below just after with a 3rd light on.
Umm - I should have edited that out at the end (it wasnt for you!), but editing I still have to figure out. I cant get the software that came with the Isonic Snapbox HD665 to work - which again, may just be user error too...
Thanks too, to Mike for his video tips. I used the code he gave to embed the HD version of each video here in this blog post. So thanks Mike!
Next I should actually use the camera for something other than testing. Perhaps I'll shoot a video review for the Isonic Snapbox HD665 to put up on Amazon.com. Good start!
Now that I have it figured out, expect more video here at ClickNewz 😉
