Summary: the size is good. the battery makes it seem not so small when it sticking outta the back but i guess you have to have that. i will say that it zooms out plenty but you have to back up to see stuff sometimes. also when you scroll through the menu it takes a while to get to the next section. we live in a fast world! i wasn't happy with that. great camera for the price other then that.
Summary: Good: - Reasonable picture quality - Quick USB download - Small size, nice grip Bad: - Files can't be downloaded directly. It requires the installation of ImageMixer to convert MOD file to MPEG2 file. - MPEG2 not recognized by Windows MovieMaker. ImageMixer does not provide enough functionality. I had to purchase and install yet another video editing software.
