Summary: I had allot of fun with this camera. Well, for the most part. It was fairly decent in full light conditions but the low light feature was horrible. In fact, most normal light conditions was too weak for this camera. If it wasn't full sun there were problems.
Summary: If you are looking for a good quality camera that will last you the rest of your vacation, this is NOT it. You will be amazed at how fustrated you will get after seeing something cool while driving, aiming your camera at that animal in that distance, and waiting an hour for the camera to start up.
Pros: This is an awesome first camera. It has a bright LCD display, great picture quality in bright areas. The camera is small enough to fit in a pocket and has a strap to prevent a fall from the hands. The camera is also very stylish for a camera under $100. The camera has a cool blue-lit power button...
Cons: The picture quality is HORRIBLE in low lit areas. The video is very grainy at times especially in low lighting. The flash is also overwelming. If you were to take a photograph of someone at night, the resulting picture looks horrible. The picture comes out with a bluish tint and your friend loks ...
Summary: There are several ways to play the .asf video files on the computer. First, media player in my windows vista does not play these files. It keeps saying there is an audio codec missing. I have the VLC player and it does play these files.
Summary: I've had this for a year now. But now the data cable seems to be wearing out. It is a triple wire connector Video out, Sound out and USB to camera. The port is smaller than a Mini USB 'B', so I'm not sure if it proprietary or some obscure standard.
Summary: I ordered one of these camcorders, it worked for less than a year, rather than go thru the hassle of repairing it thru the mnfr, like an idiot I ordered another one just like it thinking I could save money using same batteries and chips...wrong. Second video camera arrived in april, dead in June.
Summary: My husband bought this for my birthday almost 1 1/2 years ago. The camera took blurry pictures and the video is only able to record is you stand still and not walk around. Otherwise the movie becomes distorted.
