Nice hearty camera for the price. Wish audio was better.

Summary: I purchased several of these for my students and staff to use for various projects. What I liked: Takes great video, quick to learn how to use, easy to download videos. What I wish was better: audio. The audio isn't terrible, but it is what it is: a recorded video on a device with a small internal speaker that FACES THE PERSON TAKING THE VIDEO. Why couldn't this be mounted on the FRONT of the device, facing the things you are videoing?
Summary: Bought this camera to get a good video of the Baja 1000, the toughest off road race, so i needed a weatherproof camera that could film in the desert and also at the beach. This waterproof and shockproof camera was even more than i was looking for. i'm very happy with my purchase.
Summary: It's very easy to use and turns on quickly. It's difficult to video tape my 2 month old when I'm holding him because the device doesn't zoom out and right now holding him is when he is the most alert and active but it will be great when he's a bit older.
Summary: I bought this originally for myself and received a high-end digital camera for Christmas. The picture and video quality is great for the cost. I will be giving this to my daughter who broke her camera about 2 years ago and hadn't replaced it yet. This is water/shock proof and I feel she will get great use of this on campus and it wouldn't be expensive to replace should something happen to it.
Good camera with great features, but not the best video.

Summary: I have only used it a few times now, but it seems to work pretty well. Really the only thing I don't like about it is that you have to stand pretty far away from your target to get a full shot. It cannot be zoomed out enough for you to stand any closer than several feet away from your target. I've taken just a few videos, but I still have yet to run the battery down.
Summary: I was very excited to get a product that would take some abuse. So far so good but buyers beware. even after researching as much as I thought I should, no where was there any indication that the camcorder used anything other than a SD memory card. After buying the 32G SD memory card recommended for the camcorder I realized, upon arrival of the camera and the SD card, that the camcorder uses a MicroSD card and now it will cost me return shipping which cost about half what...
Summary: This is a great pocket camera for the price, and i really love the underwater capabilities. I purchased this camera for me upcoming trip to Hawaii and im finding myself using it all over the house.
