Summary: My 12 & 11 year olds are loving this camera. Very easy for them to use - they just plug it right in to their dvd player and watch their videos. The picture quality isn't the greatest - - I wouldn't get this for an adult. The quality is perfect for the kids though. Just a little grainy on our tv. This is a fantastic product for 14 or younger.
Summary: Great little camera with easy to use operation and good picture and video quality. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because I couldn't figure out how to save the video to my computer. I could watch it but not save it. I don't know about the battery life because after the 1 event I wanted recorded I gave the camera to my son. Instructions are just a little too sparse.
BOUGHT AND RETURNED 3 OTHERS BEFORE KEEPING THIS ONE

Summary: The reason I returned the others was volume pick up was poor and they did not have flip out viewers. But Creatives brand re-chargeable battery that goes into your usb slot was great and I wish this cam had it. Hate changing batteries though I use rechargeables which last about 5-7 minutes! What I LOVE about this cam is not only small and easy to use, it will take great vids/still photos in the lowest light u can imagine.
Summary: This the cam if you want to take home videos. Not great for long distance, outdoor but does a good job for indoor. I bought it to take videos of the baby to upload to friends and family. I have a full sized cam but it's too big and difficult when I just want to capture a short video. This is easy, quick and a more than adequate job for the money. I've already had several friends ask where to get it.
Summary: This is a nice little camera for a doting gramma like me to take movies of the grandkids. My old camcorder is not supported by Vista and I still haven't figured out a way to download my old videos to my new laptop. As most of my videos are of short duration of something incredibly cute being done by a toddler, I thought this would be very handy and inexpensive. Plus, it is compatible with Vista. It is very easy to use and takes both video and stills, a nice feature.
Summary: I love my new lil' toy that I can stow it away in my purse and have it ready when I need to capture something my babies are doing (ages 7,3,2). Its real easy to use and has expansion memory so you don't have to worry that you don't have enough recording time as long as you have memory chips. The only down turn is that it needs batteries if it had come with its own rechargable battery that would of been awsome. Thats the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5.
Summary: easy to use, takes good pictures and videos, easy USB hookup and the downloads look and sound quite good and it fits in my shirt pocket. And larger memory is cheap - so I can shoot till the batteries go flat. I just keep a pair of extra rechargables handy.
