The Polaroid DVF720 does not has optical zoom. Its only zoom is the 3x digital zoom which will degrade the quality of the video a bit. The Polaroid DVF720 records all the video in the built in memory, however, the built in memory is too small at 25 MB. The inbuilt memory can be expanded using an external SD/SDHC Memory card.


You may like to have an integrated USB stick that you can use to download the recorded video to PC.
The picture is recorded using in high definition at 720p resolution. The quality of the picture is clear.
