Summary: I really like it. Clear picture, simple and easy settings, definitely needs a TriPod Connector, but a Shark Clip should take care of that pretty easily. As I gear up to use this camera and utilize it more I might just seek out a couple more, just in case. I absolutely LOVE the AA battery power source, easiest power source in the world to attain on short notice.
Summary: You can't beat it for the money. It fits in a shirt pocket and is great for spur of the momemt video capture which you can't always get with a full size camcorder. Don't use the zoom and carry extra batteries. The computer program that comes with it is basic and you have to purchase a upgrade to produce a decent DVD copy. Just remember and compare it to the old HI 8 or VHS video and you will be happy.. It's a great family addition for the money.
Summary: I use this camera when its raining. It has delivered good performance. One thing that bugs me a bit is the 10 second photo delay. That works great, but the camera does not have a thread port to mount to a tri-pod which makes this feature worthless. Maybe there is an accessory mount for this purpose? But overall, I'm well satisfied.
