Summary: Got this in the mail yesterday....finally got around to trying it out today....overall, I have to say it looks cheap...but what can you expect for less than %50.00.... Pro The pictures it takes are not all that bad. Comes with 3 AAA batteries and two connector cords and a CD with software, plus a cloth drawstring bag. Cons The manual has the usual Chinese to English translation problems with stilted language and grammatical errors.
Summary: I was so upset when I went to plug in my camera today and it DOESN'T WORK! I barely used this camera, never abused it and never dropped it. I was always so careful. When I wasn't using it, it stayed securely on the tripod. No one goes in this room but me. I used it a few times to upload some YouTube videos of my pets. I never took it outside. Again, I'm so upset. I purchased this along with the rest of the kit.
Summary: This product is exactly what i was looking for clean crisp video with a true HD output. I purchased this camera for my birthday and filmed my own party. The auto-focus is very exceptional as many "HD" cameras do this rather poorly. Al in all solid purchase!
Summary: I JUST GOT THIS CAMERA AND I HAVE TO SAY THAT I GOT MY MONEYS WORTH! I GOT THE WHOLE BUNDLE FOR A GREAT PRICE AND THIS CAMERA IS EASY TO USE IT HAS EVERYTHING I NEED AND THE QUALITY IT'S GREAT!
For the price it's a good camera. But if you want GREAT spend more money!

Summary: The camera is GREAT for the money. It does not work well or auto zoom in low lighting. However for the price, you can't pass it up. Oh and it records in .MOV format only. You have to convert the files to any other.
Summary: All my comments should be prefaced with: "for a $200 camcorder..." - 5X zoom (as stated by the print around the lens) is one of this camera's strengths. I have heard of some cameras having as much as 60X zoom in this price range, but I always wonder how much of that is true zoom versus BS. This camera clearly displays the threshold where true zoom stops. It's enough zoom to stalk your neighbor with in a residential area, but not really from a high-rise to another.
Summary: I like how easy it is to use. it take clear videos and great pictures. The only thing I don't really like is the fold out screen doesn't come out very smooth and easy. it feels like I'm doing something with it that i'm not supposed to when I twist the screen to different angles.
Summary: I bought this because it supposedly had a "motion detection" feature that would begin recording, allowing it be used as a surveillance device. I had also hoped to use the camera as an "action cam" because of its small size, using it mounted on a motorcycle. Turns out the motion detection simply did not work at all, and the camera only records with the LCD screen open, rendering it useless for action work.
