Summary: I'll give this item 3 out of 5 stars as the photos and videos were exceptional in clarity for the time that the camera worked. I purchased this camera in June 2011 and the auto focus stopped working las week and you cannot clearly photograph an image unless you stand about 20 feet away from the subject since the camera seems to be stuck in a zoomed in position. I am searching and searching on line and have had no luck in locating a customer service phone number.
Summary: Got this camcorder as a gift to replace my old tape style camcorder. I am liking the ease of use & the lightness of the product. as my last one was bulky. Came with a 4 GB sd card & bought 2- 16 GB cards to go with it. it's not high end filming here, but good for what i used it for. filming my daughter dancing & playing kick ball with her friends in the back yard.It was bought thru Amazon, so it was received fairly fast and in good packaging .
Summary: The sound could be better. If you are taking video while riding in a car, the built in mic is so sensitive that the engine noise sounds as bad as a 30 MPH per hour gust of wind blowing directly at the camera. It drowns out all other sounds and is extremely irritating to listen to after a while. Speaking of real wind, the wind cut feature doesn't help at all.
