Summary: In a world of iphone and galaxy camera phones, it is nice to have a camera that can be submerged in water. Aside from that, it does pretty much what a phone with a few apps could do. If your wife is like my wife then downloading is an issue, so this lets me switch out cards so my phone isn't overloaded with videos.
Solid, very portable medium/high performance camcorder

Summary: This is a great buy if you want to get HD shooting capability at a low price. The case is very rugged, and the unit just feels solid overall. I've beaten up mine pretty good since I bought it used and it just keeps going. You can shoot in 5 different modes. WVGA,720P @ 30 frames per second, 720P @ 60 fps, and 1080P @30 fps. 1080P looks really nice, but you'll want to use 720P@60 fps when you are recording a lot of fast movement.
Excerpt: Battery life is okay. Last about 90 minutes of continuous recording. Menu and buttons not that easy to use. Only icons. No wording to guide you. Lovely video. I have not tried to record under water, but it held up well in a heavy mist.
If you need a versatile camera its a good buy for the buck

Summary: Terrific little camcorder! I only wish it had a flash, but overall it is really easy to use, not excess here at all. The pictures are clear in well lit areas, and the video is top quality. The design is fairly rugged which works for my planned uses for this little guy.
Cheap, Good Quality, Easy to Use, Great Little Camcorder!

Summary: This is a great camcorder to use for trips, kids, pets, etc., to save your memories. It's relatively inexpensive and simple to run. We have not had any problems with it but do suggest buying an extra battery so if you're away from a charger, you can continue to videotape. (An extra SD card is also a good idea). We used to have a mini-DV camcorder and had it stolen last year so bought a Playsport to videotape our kids.
Summary: Main reason for buying was that it was waterproof,I fish alot so I'm around the water all the time. So far it seems to work fine,battery life is kinda short,but I already ordered a backup battery. The picture and video quality is really good,the HD is evident.
