Summary: I bought this because I wanted a video camera for a particular trip I was taking. I also did not want to pay much, and size was very important. This product is quite adequate with stills but disappointing with video.
Summary: this is probably a good basic camcorder but not what i wanted . couldnt get it do work. didnt have a tri-pod hole which is one of the reasons i bought it. shippin was long but dont really care. buying it is your choise i dont really care.
Summary: You can get better video using the video function on most inexpensive point and shoot digital cameras. My 6 year old grandson thinks it is a really cool toy and has made some interesting videos.
Summary: Yes, got lured in by the price, however, this camera belongs in the "Toy Category" . At least once everytime I use it, the camera seizes, when no buttons work and it won't even shut down when folding the screen back in. Best use is outside with good lighting.
Summary: I use this camera up on the mountain when I go skiing with my friends, to document tricks. Its nice because the batteries don't drain too quickly and if I drop it or get snow in the lens its no big deal. but the iris is weak in the camera; it barely picks up any light in dark places.
