The RCA Small Wonder camcorder is now available at Circuit City.

You might remember hearing about the RCA Small Wonder EZ201 just a few months ago at CES 2007. It's the follow-up to RCA's inexpensive, extremely simple digital camcorder, the Small Wonder EZ101. It's finally shipped--just in time for Mother's Day.

The $130 camcorder's predecessor fared poorly in our tests, scoring a disappointing 5.6. Thankfully, this new version makes several improvements over that version, including twice as much on-board memory (capable of recording 60 minutes of video compared to the EZ101's 30 minutes), an SD card memory slot, and a flip-out 1.5-inch LCD screen. It also quashes the irritating clicking noise the EZ101's buttons made, so it might indeed shape up to be a far better Mother's Day gift candidate than the previous model. If your mother is a technophobe who wants to shoot simple videos without much hassle or complication, this inexpensive little camcorder might be worth a shot. Keep an eye out for our review of the RCA Small Wonder EZ201 in the future.
