Summary: My personal opinion with this pocket camera is not bad. The overall design is fab with a funky Orange colour which is what I was after. It comes with a durable thick wrist strap and a mini tripod. I mainly use this for video and the only negative issue I have is the battery life :( it takes over 4 hours to charge to full capacity and all you get is a mere 1hr 30 mins max of usage, might be due to filming on a 480p setting which is a real shame as I have a Panasonic Lumix...
Summary: Ok but didn't like the zoom! Very jerky zooming in and out bit of a disappointment! from Panasonic cause they usually good! a well great still movies if your not zooming Fantastic Panasonic images. I bought a toshiba Camileo not such a big screen but smooth zooming in and out and similar design waterproof but the panasonic had good display for playback but when recording you back to half a screen! the other half the screen is touch controls when you are recording!
Summary: Bought this and a Kodak Zx5 before we went on holiday, tried both and found both to be lacking in Definition when played back on a 42" plasma. Although both are 1080P the playback is grainy and was disappointed. Low lighting levels were slightly better on this one but were very grainy and would not recommend using either camera at night. Build Quality is very good and liked the double door locking feature, so you couldn't accidentally expose the compartments.
