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.
Very Good but perhaps the CEREVO would have been better

Summary: This works very good with an ATT Mobile Hot Spot. No buffering. The Frame rate is spec slow. It seems to not work very well in most Cafe' wifi's very well, you need to get a hot spot. You can get a 3GB one for around 30 a month 5 GB for 50.
Summary: Everything works as advertized. Very easy to operate and gets great movies and pictures in all lighting . cons: Battery , is very expensive the normal size that comes with the camera only last up to 1 hr. A larger size batter must be a panasonic or it wont work and it is around $125.
Good When Manually Paddling, Not So When Self-Propelled

Summary: ~*~ Quick Summary ~*~ At first pick-up, the camcorder firstly feels very cheap. Whether or not this matters (it does slightly to me) , it is something to mention and obviously does not affect any 'abilities' of the video recorder itself. With the all-plastic outer shell it is lightweight in your hand however the more you hold an object for an extended amount of time you will get fatigue in your arms simply because your arms have weight.
Summary: The V720 is an easy-to-use, versatile camera for this price range. It's light and compact, so it is great for your backpack or purse. I carry it in my backpack's side water bottle holder. Here is a summary of some Pros and Cons. PROS - As I mentioned, it is compact and light. It feels somewhat sturdy, but I would not expect it to come out of a drop to concrete unscathed. - The user interface on the screen is intuitive and easy to use.
Summary: This is a great little camcorder. It would be ideal for everyday recording, family vacations, and special occasions such as weddings or sporting events. It would also make a good starter camcorder for beginner videographers or film students. PROS: - Camcorder is relatively light and small; it's easy to transport and it won't take much room in terms of storage.
Summary: I will have to write this review in a couple of sections. I will start with the mistakes I made so hopefully you will not make them either. I rushed when ordering so I didn't realize it needs a SD card. So order one right away. When you turn in on and it says to enter the time and date, do not hit enter, it will just put in the Jan 2013 date showing. Look for the arrows at the bottom and keep going to the right until menu shows up.
