What doesn’t look like a traditional camcorder and also lets you easily upload recorded video to select online video sharing Web sites? The Pure Digital Point & Shoot Camcorder.

The pocket-sized Pure Digital Point & Shooter Camcorder has 512MB of internal memory, which is enough to hold upwards of 30 minutes of video (a newer 60 minute model is set to be released soon). It has 2x digital zoom and a 1.4-inch color screen built-in so you can view the video you record. This video can also be viewed on a TV or PC by through a connector cable (for the TV) or a USB arm (for the PC) which swings out from the device’s body.

With features like one-touch recording, zoom and instant playback and delete, the Pure Digital Point & Shoot Camcorder is designed for those who don’t want an overly complex video recording device. It has, besides the built-in USB arm, several buttons for easy control of this device, a built-in microphone for recording audio and an audio speaker with volume control for playback. Power is generated off of two AA batteries.

Like the one-use digital cameras and camcorders Pure Digital is known for stocking in stores like Rite Aid, Target and CVS, the Point & Shoot Camcorder is created with ease of use in mind. To that end it has built-in software which activates when you hook it up to a computer via the USB arm. This software does a variety of functions, including uploading video directly to video sharing Web sites Google Video or Grouper Networks, one-step emailing of video to loved ones, creation and emailing of video greeting cards for various special moments, archiving of videos to the PC (which in turn frees up camcorder memory) and creation of custom movie mixes.

If your desire with footage off of the Pure Digital Point & Shoot Camcorder is to create a DVD of your favorite memories instead, you can take the camcorder to a variety of authorized retail outlets. These outlets will remove the video and burn it onto a special DVD which includes a custom menu to find your movies as well as a highlight video of your best moments set to music.

The Pure Digital Point & Shoot Camcorder ships with the TV connector cable, an attachable wrist strap, soft carrying case, two AA batteries and a user’s guide. More details on this device can be found at Pure Digital’s Web site.
