Summary: Size is 10 stars. Limitations bring it back down to 5 stars. Best feature, is that its small enough to always be with you.CIA agents would love this camera.About the size of 2 Minox spy cameras laid side by side. Works flawlessly.Records with more than enough fidelity to be functional and enjoyable. The only flaw in the design is that it doesnt stand up by itself.You cant rest it on a surface to include yourself.(unless you want sideways vantage points.
Summary: This camera is great for someone who needs to fit their camera in a small place such as a pocket or purse. It is so small that I kept it in my purse at all times. In daylight the pictures turn out wonderful! Sometimes at night you need to make sure you are at a close enough distance that the flash can brighten up background. This camera is great for taking videos while on vacation. Who wants to carry around a camcorder these days?!?
Summary: i bought this 5 days ago and the device may "work" but the cradle doesn't. After installing the USB drivers a dozen times and being put on hold by three differnt companies, i have had it. I bought this because i need a mp3 player and a digital camera. Silly me, I thought that companies want my business. Panasonic tech support is a joke. Sony has the best music. Microsoft can megabyte me. I am returning this device for the cheaper Palm zire 72.
Summary: I regret buying this camera because I cannot view the videos I shot. If you buy a Sony digital camera it shoots video in MPEG4 format and that can be viewed by several programs such as Real Player, Windows Movie Maker, QuickTime, etc. This Panasonic camcorder claims to shoot MPEG, but it does not. The video files are something called ASF and I cannot find a program to view the videos or to convert them to real MPEGS.
