Preteens can be very hard to shop for during the Holiday season. Most of them, like mine, claim to be too old for toys, but still want something they can have fun with as well as get use out of. My preteen really wants a laptop,(maybe if he gets a job and pays for it himself) a cell phone, (NOT happening. He doesn't even talk on the phone!) and an IPad. (If Mommy doesn't get an IPad, neither does he. Just saying.) But another nifty piece of technology he wants that I WILL allow him to have is a compact, handheld video camera. My son is very dramatic, and loves dancing, singing, and making little skits to share with his friends.
That's why I was so excited to get the opportunity to review the Coby SNAPP Swivel Camcorder! How perfect is this for Christmas? We received the CAM4402 model for review, and this little handheld gem is perfect for beginners and enthusiasts alike. The design is sleek, attractive, and easily fits in the palm of your hand for easy maneuvering. But the really cool part? The Coby SNAPP has a 2.4" LCD Viewfinder that swivels and flips for convenient, easy viewing. This definitely comes in handy when you want a clear view of what you're shooting footage of! You can even take still photos with the Coby SNAPP! This is awesome, since I know I like to be able to take video and still shots alike.
This camcorder also has expandable memory. You can easily extend your recording length by simply adding an SD/SDHC card into the integrated card slot. No worries about running out of space and missing out on capturing those precious memories!
The Coby SNAPP even has some very cool, simple to understand Muvee video editing software that makes uploading video to YouTube a breeze. This is great for those who like web-casting and want to give their videos that special extra touch! My son particularly likes this feature, since he and his friends enjoy communicating with one another through videos. It's also great for school projects!
Here's a run down of the features of the Coby SNAPP CAM4002 and it's great features:
We really like the Coby SNAPP CAM4002. When we received it, we initially thought it was defective, as the display had an odd, plaid-looking pattern on it when we put fresh batteries in and turned it on for the first time. However, this was blessedly temporary, and somehow fixed itself. This has not occurred again, so I think we're in the clear.
The SNAPP is very easy to operate, takes decent quality video, and the audio quality is good as well. My son was able to play around with it and learn all of the different settings in about 10 minutes. This is great, since he's a beginner and we didn't want him to feel too frustrated or overwhelmed. The Coby SNAPP Swivel Camcorder definitely makes a wonderful first camera, but is also good for general use. This would be a fantastic gift for teens, grandparents, or new parents who want to capture life's precious moments on video. The Coby SNAPP is also very reasonably priced and won't break the bank. I would definitely recommend this camera for that special someone on your holiday list!
