Summary: This is a preliminary review, since I've only had time to open the package and shoot a few pictures/videos. - I love the hand held format and size, it's very convenient. This is the main reason I purchased this camera. - The charging process is a bit odd, you plug in the camera, like an ipod. You can charge batteries externally and insert, which I have done. - The multi-picture shooting option seems to work, but it's going to take some practice.
Summary: I was looking for a hand held video camera with a zoom, and this was the only one out there. I had the Flip, which was great, but it didn't last long and they don't make it any longer. I recently took this camera with me on my dream vacation to Puerto Rico, and although no camera can capture the beauty of that island, this camera did capture memories that I will have forever. It did everything I needed it to. Very convenient, great zoom, clear video.

Summary: Really great video recorder and camera. I use it regularly to film bands and the audio that it records is really good despite the high volume of the band. Video and photo quality are top quality as well.
Summary: This camera is brilliant, it delivers all that its supposed to, easy to use, good focusing, lots of good usefu, features, with none of the less useful features of some more expensive models. It's true the battery life doesn't last forever. But if you are wanting to make a film, you wouldn't be buying this type of camera in the first place.
Summary: I bought this to take to Disney and it proved invaluable. Unfortunately we lost the lens cap but it works great and even takes photographs when filming too. I liked it so much I bought my Mum one.
Summary: For a beginner it's an easy 'point and press' to take both video and still photos (even both at the same time). For a 'PRO' there are dozens of fancy functions from creating 360 panoramic photos to shooting/showing video in sepia (recreate the old black & white movies) plus 'soft skin' effects and 'vivid' which enhances sharpness and colour. The zoom functions are just one of the great features as they operate from Macro (sharp recording as close as 1cm.
