The Coby SNAPP CAM3001 is a low-end camcorder replacing the CAM3000 at the bottom of Coby's lineup. Mostly notable for its pocket-sized form factor, it shoots video at 30 fps and resolutions up to 640x480. Coby's more costly SNAPP models offer larger screen sizes and resolutions, while the CAM3001 is limited by a 1.44" LCD and 1.3MP sensor. It offers, essentially, a minimal step up from cell phone camera quality. The camcorder supports memory expansion via SD/SDHC card for over two hours of recording time, but battery life is limited to 1.5 hours. Included software allows videos to be edited and uploaded to YouTube on a PC.

Features
  • 1.3MP CMOS sensor
  • 4x digital zoom
  • 640x480 resolution (30fps)
  • 1.44" LCD
  • AVI file format
  • Optional SD/SDHC memory expansion to 8GB
  • ArcSoft Media Impression software (PC only)
  • AV cable for TV output
  • 1.5hr battery life (2x AA)
  • 2.4" x 4.6" x 1.1"
