PowerLead Puto PLD003 Review
Now I will talk about some of the features of the PowerLead Puto PLD003 Mini DV camcorder to help you understand the specifications and the benefits you can get from using this camera in this PowerLead Puto PLD003 review.
The camera is a lightweight one considering it is a traditionally built one. The whole thing weights 10.14 ounces with one NP – 120 battery installed inside the camera.
The battery itself is easy to find as this is a popular option used in Fuji cameras and many others. This makes getting batteries a breeze whenever you need to, unlike the action cameras which require finding the exact correct battery a hassle to begin with. This PowerLead Puto PLD003 review would like to add that this simple feature is a remarkable one.
You will not even need to open up the added manual as it is super easy to operate on your own. The default settings are set to 720p at 30 frames per seconds (FPS) with anti – shake on, automatic white balance and scene etc. The camera was nearly charged when I got it out of the package so all I had to do was insert in the SD card and I was good to go right then.
LED Light Feature
The camera comes with a LED cool lighting at the front of the camera. The range is short and is perhaps no more than a foot but it surely will come in handy as an additional feature for things which are not commonly seen at first glance. The PowerLead Puto PLD003 review would like to add that this thing is a rarity for cameras found in the same price range.
The photos and videos are easily transferrable to a PC with the help of a standard USB cable. The camera does not seem to like the usual USB hub so using the port is a better option in my opinion. You can transfer your photos and videos and then edit them based on the apps of your device as this camcorder does not come with any sort of editing options built inside.
Videos tend to get shaky while moving or trying to capture scenes which are on the go, so stabilization is needed to make the video quality less blurry and more stable. Stable videos overall make the quality of the video improve and develop the aesthetic value to make them more interesting. If you want to start vlogging, stable videos are a must, unless you want to present your viewers with a headache.
The anti – shake function of the PowerLead Puto PLD003 Mini DV C8 camcorder helps a bit with the stabilization of the videos, while at the same time, it works against it, causing warped video capture around the edges, even though you are standing still. Fast panning will result in movement tracers. To be fair though, many similarly priced camcorders have the same kind of fault, so this is to be expected from cameras of this specific price range.
The best focal point of the PowerLead Puto PLD003 Mini DV C8 camcorder is at around 30 feet. This makes the video quality quite blurry in closer range, even with manual lighting adjustments. This in my opinion is the most disappointing aspect of this camcorder as I have used other cameras in the same price range which provide far better crispness than this one.
Tripod and Mounting System
The universal sizing for tripod and traditional mounts are there in this camera which is the ¼ inches screw mount. This is a unique feature of this camera as the vast majority of all action cameras have a different type of mounting system. Being forced to have the casing on adds additional hassles. Direct mounting of the camera over being forced to use any sort of casing is a huge positive benefit in my opinion.
Now it is time to take a look at some of the pros and cons of the camcorder in this PowerLead Puto PLD003 review.
- Lightweight compared to other cameras with the same features.
- Standard battery which is hassle free.
- Standard mounting system makes life less struggling.
- Additional LED white light feature.
- Focal point makes objects in close range seem blurry.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced camera, the PowerLead Puto PLD003 review will suggest this one wholeheartedly.
