Summary: File format was never adopted by standard Windows or OS X video editing applications. All footage that I shot with this camera pretty much died with the camera. Was one of the first digital video cameras, so I was excited about transferring to computer without messing with tape.
Summary: I bought this little jewel at a PX in Germany and paid only 300 us new, the salesman apparently had no idea of how exp it was, anyway it was sitting in the reduced area because it had been opened and was missing both the micro drive and battery.
Summary: I will start off saying I am not A pro when it comes to cameras. I have read all kinds of info and posts on this camera trying to get a good photo out of it. This camera can take perfect high quality full of detail pictures if you use tele macro setting and are extremely close to what your taking a...

27 June 2006
Summary: I have a Mac and this product doesn't work at all with it. The customer support explained to me first that the software for the Mac was on the disk. After I called again they told me that I had to buy a product called Capty that you cannot test like any other usual product of this kind.
Summary: THIS is an amazing camera- BUT- It does not work with a mac.. you can get the files to the desktop, but the sound is separate.. trying to splice the sound back to the video is next to impossible. (and I'm a mac geek..
