When CamcorderInfo.com heard that CVS has released the world’s first One-Time-Use Video Camcorder, they jumped at the chance to run it through their testing process– the full 39-point review. Here's a short snip:
This camcorder is, as you might expect, as unorthodox as they come, and made performing the tests challenging. For one thing, there is no way to attach it to a tripod. If you want to review what your footage looks like, you’d better look fast. The One-Time-Use Video Camcorder only allows you to view the last clip you shot. There are no forward and back buttons to scroll through clips. Other things you won’t find: zoom capability, a power cord, any ports, or even a hand strap. Total simplicity and full service are the name of the game. You must return the camcorder to select CVS locations in order to get the footage back in a DVD format.
