Summary: I boought it and returned it. I wanted something that would have a sharp picture and low noise from high ISO. Well, I got low noise, but at the cost of a softer than acceptable image. I'd rather have a slightly noisier image that can be later cleaned up at the cost of a softer image. At least then I have a choice of sharpness or iso noise.
The static image is still bad compare to normal camera

Summary: I used it intensively for about half a year now. The static image is still bad compare to normal camera. But it is a video camera. Video and photo quality is much better than the sony one in the same price range. Microphone has reasonable quality also. However, do not be fooled by all the fancy software functions, most of them can not work properly mainly due to the super slow wireless connection and MCU. Do NOT expect the remote control to work smoothly.
Summary: I use this camera for surveillance. It is plugged in and runs 24/7 since the day it arrived. The 64gb card records for 28 hours. No problems. Stays cool. I would have to say it is a great camera. I would buy it again.
terrible picture quality - my iPhone takes much better pictures
14 February 2014
Summary: I dumped $500 on this piece of mess, and I'm going to throw it away. Side-by-side comparisons of the same scene at the same time, shot with the V720 and the iPhone5 revealed the V720 to be shockingly inferior. The V720 focus was always slightly off, despite shooting on manual focus at infinity. The contrasts are punched so hard that the colors bleed into each other.
Summary: I was all set to use the camera and found that the card was not included. Had to go out and buy one. Seems a little lame to me, and really disappointing upon opening the box, wanting to use the camera..
Summary: I order this on Dec. 11th for Christmas , finally got it on Jan. 14th and was used (I ordered a new unit). Everything had been opened, finger prints everywhere and no battery charger. I'm not opposed to used items but I didn't order a used unit. I requested a replacement and it arrive (finally) yesterday. Guess what? It was used also but I'm tired of messing with Amazon, never again. As far as the camera I'm very impressed.
Summary: I did lot of research before I bought this product. (compared with Sony and Canon). But this one stands out for a good prize range. Amazing product for still pictures and video. I can recommend this to buy.
