YouTube has led to the creation of a whole new class of video cameras. Lightweight and not too expensive cameras like the Flip and Creatives Vado make shooting video for the Net easy.

RCA\'s Small Wonder range also falls into this category and the latest one in their stable is the EZ209HD. The Small Wonder is dead easy to use and it fits easily in the back pocket of your jeans. There are three shooting modes including HD which records video up to 1280 x 720 resolution in H.264 format. The Small Wonders video quality isnt overly impressive, even the HD quality is a bit jittery, but if you\'re going to upload the videos to the Net it will work just fine.

We would have liked it if the Small Wonder came with a tripod mount to enable recording yourself, and the included Memory Manager software left us less than impressed. The RCA Small Wonder EZ209HD retails for R1499 from Computer Corporation on 08616-08616.

Easy to use, small and easy to pocket, HDMI port.
No HDMI cable, Video quality dissapointing, included software not very good, no HDMI cable included
