A great multipurpose camera/camcorder

Summary: I've had this unit for about 3 months and have to say I'm very impressed. The main benefit of this camera is that it is both a 5mp camera and a camcorder (and a webcam and a voice recorder, havent tried those functions yet) even though I use this "toy" primarily for the still images.
Summary: I've had my C5 for about 2 weeks and so far I love it - it has only a few minor drawbacks. Pros: * MPEG4 and SD Card storage (primary reasons I got this camera) * Size - it easily fits in my front jean-pocket * Ease of use - it's exceedingly simple to offload images and videos from the camera to...
Summary: Having done some research I purchased this to replace my 3Mega Pix canon that works fine but doesn't allow quality video. I couldn't wait until it arrived. I am one of those "read through the manual first" kind of people and once I did I proceed to use the camera.
Summary: i perform dance. since i don't have my official photographer/videotographer, i have to carry both my still camera and a video camera in addition to costume and more, locally and internationally. it had been pain in my neck. however, this device is sooo light and sharp ! my problem is gone.
Summary: Camera is great for shooting both live action video (Up to 1 hours) as well as still images (5 MegaPixel) with a 1GB card SD card. You can actually shoot a still image while you are shooting video - Yes, both at the same time!!! Camera is ultra compact and ultra cool in looks and style.
nice looking camra but not all what it makes out to be

Summary: i got this camera inthe airport goin to egypt so i got it tax free which was good. now the camera look ssoo cool, u cant beat it u just cant, and it really is so easy to use. but there r a few downfalls. first the noisy camera lens motor.
Summary: I wasn't expecting a lot out of this camera when I first got it. But when I opened up the box, and saw all the things it comes with I was so excited to use it! I used the quick-start guide to charging the battery, but it said that you had to have the camera on the docking station.
Summary: I bought this camcorder off ebay before it is on sale in the states. really good gadget and worthy the money IMHO. you would be supprised of its size. and won't touch a mini-dv once you have got used to its size. it offers probably the most functionalities available now from any manufactures.
If you need to record movie at night or in house , forget it
