Summary: This is one of the best gifts I've ever received. This camera is so cute. Being the mother of a young child, I don't want to miss anything. So I can keep this securely in my daughter's day bag to capture those sweet moments like her running in my heels with pantyhose on her head...So darling! LOL! This camera has so many functions. It takes pictures, records video, plays MP3 files, has adjustable everything on it. And again, it's so small. Yet it does so much!
Summary: Ok, so this thing isnt the greatest camera in the world, but for $100 getting a picture camera, video camera, MP3 player and voice recorder all in one that fits in your pocket its not bad. sure you could buy the iphone and get all that, but that has some strings attached.
as for my review of this.
Pros: picture size, light weight, small, battery life
Cons: Picture quality, menu set up, lens, LCD doesn't swivel, no flash control, LED video light is useless.
Summary: Sure, it's nice and compact and has a cool flip screen, but if your subject is not perfectly still, it's blurry. It doesn't zoom out enough and when it does, it's choppy. I'm in college trying to take pictures of my friends doing weird stuff and that stuff usually happens once, hard to repeat. This camera takes nearly 10-13 seconds from "power on" to the first picture. By then, the moment has passed.
Summary: I got this camera for christmas and i use it on occasion. It takes descent videos on the highest quality but you cant move it too quickly. The photos are horrible. You have to hole it completely still and it still comes out blurry. You also cant put extera lenses on it. Overall its okay but i definately would suggest a camcorder with a hard drive or mini dv or just any one with a rechargeable battery.
Summary: This camera records audio fine but as for video....it's terrible. Any movement at all produces huge blurs leaving my entire 32 minute video I made completely incomprehensible besides the audio. There are many many other choices for a video camera and I urge you to choose any of them in the place of this one.
