Summary: I bought this camera about two weeks before my high school graduation and a two week trip to Orlando, Florida. After using this camera throughout my entire prom, graduation, project graduation, and trip to florida I uploaded the videos to my computer.
Summary: Camera is very easy to use/uploading could hardly be easier. Accessary bag supplied contained everuthing needed to begin using. Camera was the perfect gift. Amazon made everything so,so simple. Thank you,Amazon !
Summary: Unfortunately the clicking problem other people have posted is continuing. It clicks on playback, loudly. It also doesn't consistently record audio so it is either no sound or clicking. Returning and not going to get another.
