Do not purchase this item if you want a good camera that is ergonomic

Summary: Well not a lot good to report on this camera. Battery life Sucks, Picture is only good if you have it on smart auto. The auto focus sucks bad. Video Gets washed out in bright light, The charger port is inside a little door behind the lcd screen not convenient at all. I know now why it was cheap.
Summary: I bought a cheaper Samsung camera and actually prefer it over this more expensive one. I don't care for the touch screen. It can be a pain and difficult to manage at time. Also, I haven't seen an option to face detect/auto tune like I have on the other camera we own.
Summary: The camcorder quality is really nice and all the features are very basic. I cannot use the camcorder to record as a webcam. I have a samsung computer but I am unable to use it simultaneously with camtasia software.
Summary: This camera is real handy. Small size, has a real nice feel. The video is good. The touch screen is pretty small and not as easy to use as some touch screens but it is fine for a camera of this price. I think this gives good value for the price.
Summary: It's a great camcorder for outdoors use but if you plan to use it indoors, specially when low light then this is not the one you need. I didn't do a good research before buying it and didn't realize It has no flash incorporated and now I'm paying the consequences of not being able to record in low...
Summary: I agree with other reviewers that the microphone is not the greatest, but it works ok. One thing I will say about this camera and it might be the same with other ones is that I noticed that the Hi-Def recording is not that clear if the lighting is real low.
Summary: we bought this for our daughter who enjoys making little videos and is pretty good at it. The controls on the camera seem pretty easy but they don't always work. You would need to push things several times to get them to work.
