My Canon M506 made it look like a webcam with vaseline on the lens. On the 3rd day the screen died. Still recorded but screen was all white with random lit pixels.

While recording, the screen is half blocked, which makes viewing area poor. The zoom feature is by touch screen and its not smooth. One thing to note is that the quality of video is very high and hence my home personal laptop finds it difficult to play. Make sure you have a powerful computer.
