Pros: Captures great video. Very clear. Wide angle video capture makes it great for sporting events. Editor's poor review for night video capture is misleading. I capture high school events and get excellent quality videos of football and soccer.
Cons: Battery is a bit weak. I don't record entire games straight through, pausing when necessary, and the battery lasts about an hour and a half. Can't mute microphone - or, at least, they hide that control very well.
Summary: We purchased this camera for our Daughter and her husband for Christmas last year because we were expecting our first grandchild in January. It has continued to please them and the ease of use and picture quality is great!
Summary: This is my first video camera and I am happy with it. I bought it because of the band name combined with price and reviews. It isn't the best, from what I understand, but it does everything I need it to do. Don't expect to go make a movie with it but it will capture your important moments just fine.
I am thinking about upgrading to an external mic but I can't seem to find the right one for the right price. So for now, it does just fine.
Summary: This is a great little camera. We bought it a week before we left for a road trip. It is really easy to use. It's light and small, and takes a good picture. We used it both in the car and outside in the wind. It picks up voices really well and doesn't get a lot of road or wind noise. It has a good zoom and the LCD screen is really helpful. We travel a lot and are really glad we got this camera!!!
Summary: First the good. It's solid, built really well. If it weren't for the lack of buttons/controls on this thing you'd think it was a more expensive camera. I like the "square" design much better than the vertical design of some consumer cams. The inclusion of a cold shoe is a nice idea, but what can you really use here other than a cheapo light. If you need a cheapo light you can just buy a GS85 instead. REAL easy to use.
