Summary: I originally bought it because, at the price, I could use it for non-professional shooting and not be heartbroken if it was met with a catastrophic accident. The quality of the video is so surprisingly good (it shoots in H264) and I use it as a back-up in the event my much more expensive Sony fails...
Summary: It's really easy to use, well designed, very portable and has a decent battery life. The only problem is it doesn't record from component and the battery indicator starts to decay when it's running out, not progressively.
Summary: Unless used, not bad at all. Have read terrible reviews and expected it to be worse than received. It takes good pictures, video quality is also fine. Microphone really could have been placed in front but it doesn't bother me that much. Satisfied for the price.
Summary: Hey! I bought this camera here in Spain, and while I was delighted with the price ( I got it for 69 ) and the image, the sound is awful. I bought this camera to make little videos with my English students, so that they could hear themselves speaking English! Well, that didn't work at all.
