Good inexpensive camera that does what you want to log important events.

Summary: For the money this is a good camera. It does what I wanted it to do. I bought this camera for a light weight pack along camera for capturing out door events. You will need extra batteries as the one that comes with it will last 20 minutes at best. Low light pictures are ok, but you have to pay a lot more money to get high quality low light video. A tripod is reccomended as small light cameras are hard to hold steady.
The external mic jack is the greastest advantage for this camera at this pr

Summary: I have only used this indoors to tape lectures up to this point. I had to replace the lightbulbs to daylight otherwise it was more grainy than my Kodak Playful. However with the new lights it is now fine. Its stablization is fine with moment in front of the camera while on a tripod. The external mic jack is the greastest advantage for this camera at this price. The 32 gb is nice.
Summary: This camera was a great value as a refurb. Pros Has connectors for mic, phones, hdmi Excellent value for the price Very good picture if light is adequate Cons Built in mic picks up internal noise. Sounds good with external mic, but there is no accessory shoe to mount it. Mediocre picture in low light.
Pros: nice features, easy to use, solid construction
Cons: there is a spinning sound on all the videos I shot, maybe the internal hardrive recording It drowned out simple conversations,was not suitable for my needs so I returned it to Costco, where their website also had user reviews saying the same thing.
