CES: RCA Small Wonder digital camcorder

EasyWonder.gif


One of my favorite toys at CES this year is the RCA Small Wonder, a digital camcorder which is "EZ," to quote the packaging. With this "point-and-shoot" MPEG-4 digital camcorder, there are no tapes or discs to buy, and the device runs on standard AA batteries, meaning that you won't be trying to shoot a family milestone and realize you forgot to charge the battery. At 60 minutes of standard-quality recording time (30 minutes of high-quality video), you're not going to run out of time, either.

The lovely "booth babe" (though they prefer to be called model spokespersons, thanks very much) let me record her demo-ing the product and then plug it into the computer through the built -in USB port arm and instantly e-mail to my editor, Hoyun, who probably wondered what the hell she was watching.

Keeping the younger market , ie children, they've made it as easy as turning on the power button and pressing the red "record" button. You can play back clips on the camcorder's 1.5-inch LCD screen, and unwanted clips can be deleted with the touch of the "delete" button. The EZ105 connects directly to a TV set for immediate viewing, for example when you've got the grandparents visiting. Best yet, there's no software to install (software is built into the camera itself.) At $129, they are going to sell a lot of these.
