For the price, it's great

  • Summary: Though I bought this from another source, I feel compelled to respond to one of the reviewer's comments in regard to the 4GB card issue. I ordered a 4GB HC SD from another online vendor and ever since I first formatted it, it has worked flawlessly; aside from the video/audio syncing "problem".

Great camera, but theres a little lie!

Nice little unit but with desynchronization of audio and video

22 July 2007
  • Summary: This is a nice little camera with a fabulous set of features. However, still photos I'm finding to have highly irregular lumination with bizarre dark bands across the photos, and in video I see desynchronization of the audio and video by around half a second with image stabilization, or a 1/10th of...
