Pure Digital is a terrible, terrible digital video camera
In spite of what you may have heard or read, Pure Digital’s little video camera is pretty much useless. Sure, it’s small and handy, and it’s easy to operate, and it stores 30 minutes of video and the built-in USB connection makes it easy to download video clips to your computer (at least if you have a laptop or USB hub), but all of that merely add up to you being able to easily shoot, download and view up to 30 minutes of truly awful-looking video clips.
The zoom function is completely useless, use it and whatever video you shoot will be out blurry and pointless. You’re better off putting extra money into a decent digital with 30 frames per second video capacity and optical zoom that actually does something for you.
