Pros: Like the compact size and the Head Cam. Very simple and easy to use. Not a lot of buttons to confuse the average user.
Cons: 1 month past the 1 year warranty the audio pickup/capture doesn't work. I didn't plan on buying a new video cam just after 1 year. The service fee to fix this is $169, which I could go buy a refurbed one on the net for that price. Not happy
Summary: For those having problems with the oddball SEDG format this camera records in, here's a tip: SEDG is DIVX, which is a codec you already have. All you have to do is use a HEX editor and load the file. It says SEDG in two places at the beginning. They are actually in the header, but it looks like one big file. Change those to DIVX and save. Do not use a text editor. Do not change the total number of characters.
Summary: This is great for home movies and capturing spontaneous moments. The small size makes it easy to stick in a pocket, so you end up having it when you would not bother with a bigger camera. My wife keeps it in her purse if I am not using it. The quality is good enough for home movies and web content. The biggest drawback is the native file format. There is no support for a Mac. I use an app named "VisualHub" ($20) to convert to quicktime or mp4.
Summary: Yes, there are multiple versions of this camera out there. This seems to be a huge problem. The one I purchased does not take stills, does not have the built in LED flash, or the 2gb on board flash memory as described on the web site I purchased it from. This is false advertisement. Buyer beware. As far as how the camcorder operates, read the other threads. I only gave it one star because of false advertisement.
Summary: Hi ! First of all I wanna say that this is my first Camcorder that i ever bought in my life ..
I like it and its great because you can bring with you everywhere and its light.
The images are good outside and not so bad indoor.. for sure is not a camcorder with 3ccd but its ok....
The audio is great , I was amazed about the quality of audio..
I don't like too much the case because is too small and its a little boring to put the camcorder inside it ..
