Summary: Great idea, poor implementation. What's good/OK: Video/picture quality: not bad with lots of light. The best feature and best quality: underwater mode when it is sunny. After trying this camera at the pool at home, in Mexico, in Hawaii - I've decided that this is the only application I am going to use this camera for: underwater video. Powers up very quickly. Records in .mp4, which I prefer to .mov.
Summary: Great video quality and decent zoom abilities....I wish it would zoom out more. My main issue is the battery. I will spend a full day charging in order to record therapy sessions and then I don't need to use it for some reason. I get ready to use it the following week and the battery is dead. I did get this refurbished so that may be the reason why.
Summary: i used mine for a lot of different reasons and it worked out even on covert situations ,better then another hd camara i have , my other camara was sharper in one respect, as this one has a upstanding class of its own also, i recomend you buy this one.
