12 Reasons Against
Poor Product Quality
One person who reviewed it wrote that it was not good quality. In October last year Digitaltrends.com mentioned “Mediocre image quality”.
Not Full HD
The PIXPRO SP360 is not Full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other camcorders that have been around for around the same time as the PIXPRO SP360 are also not Full HD.
Camcorders which are Full HD that might also be worth considering include the HDR-AS200[pl_2962230_price], or the HDR-AZ1[pl_2962228_price] both from Sony.
Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser
Like most of the other camcorders of this type and age, the Kodak PIXPRO SP360 does not have an image stabiliser.
We compared all the other video cameras which also have an image stabiliser to this video camera and we think the HDR-AS200[pl_2962230_price], or the HDR-AZ1[pl_2962228_price] both from Sony; or the Sony FDR-X1000[plb_2962225_price] are also worth considering.
Does Not Have an HDMI Port
Most comparable spec video cameras that were launched more than two years ago do not have an HDMI port. The PIXPRO SP360 is no exception to this as it too does not have an HDMI port.
We compared this video camera to all the other camcorders with an HDMI port and we think the Sony HDR-AS200[plb_2962230_price]; or the Sony FDR-X1000[plb_2962225_price] are also worth considering.

Most camcorders that have been on the market for more than two years are not waterproof. The PIXPRO SP360 is no exception to this as it too is not waterproof.
