Summary: Great zoom but actually 70x Optical and not 78x (that's the enhanced optical zoom). The video quality is quite poor, even on the highest setting. I bought it to record shots at 300+ yards and it does the job.
Summary: The zoom goes so far that you cant breathe if you want to see what you are doing. Pretty impressive. I wouldn't pay more than $60 for this thing. I checked on youtube to see the quality before I bought it and this doesn't compare, even after messing with all the settings
Summary: I purchased this camera for my husband as a gift. When it arrived and I saw how light weight it was, I thought I had made a mistake. It turned out to be a great camera - especially for the price. We have used it for many different occasions and recorded many happy memories with it.
Summary: I bought this camera a year ago from amazon for $150. It comes with a battery, charger unit and VideoCam suite 3 software. Software allows copy to computer, disks or upload to youtube. You need to buy a SD card for this camera. It will store individual pictures and/or videos.
