Frosty Festivities: RCA Small Wonder Digital Camcorder Review & {GIVEAWAY!!}

If you are still looking for the perfect Christmas gift or stocking stuffer for either a man, woman, or teen, you don't need to look any further. The RCA Small Wonder digital camcorder is a sleek and fun way to capture memories forever. This camcorder is awesome! It has three video camera settings: HD, Sport, and WebQ.
HD: Records up to 8 hours of video, with a resolution of 1280 x 720 in @ 30FPS
Sports: Records up to 8 hours of video, with a resolution of 848 x 480 in @ 60FPS
WebQ: Records up to 40 hours of video, with a resolution of 320 x 240 in @ 30FPS

The video camera has a play/pause button, delete, photo, menu, and record buttons. There is also a zoom in and out function that zooms in a way that doesn't make the video look like it is moving too much. I love the photo function. I can't even count how many times I have been taking a video and wished that I could take a still picture, but didn't have a camera with me. It only takes a few seconds for the camera to transition from video to photo mode so you don't miss a thing!
Here is my Small Wonder next to my BlackBerry. As you can see, the Small Wonder is more slim and just a tiny bit taller. This is perfect to put in your back pocket or in your purse or diaper bag.
The Small Wonder comes with an AV Cable, USB Cable, Charging Adapter, Carry Pouch, and Wrist Strap so you have everything you need to watch your videos on the television or on the computer. I was impressed when I plugged my video camera into my computer. I didn't have to download any software or wait for my system to find the camera, it just instantly downloaded my videos. So easy.
Check out a short video I took of my son:

Simply click the "Email" button within the RCA Memory Manager software, and your email program creates a new message and your video is preformatted as an attachment. Just type in your message and send.
