Summary: Unfortunately, I dropped by 2009 Xacti camera (unknowingly) in the sand, on the beach. After we recovered it, several hours late, it was ruined beyond repair; sand and surf had killed it! Since I was used to the operation of this camera, I wanted one just like it.
Summary: I had a camera like this before and it burned out on me. And they discontinued it... and as soon as they discontinued it, the price jumped up sky high! I was thankful to find this product at a reasonable price. The Sellers are WONDERFUL AND DELIVERED EXACTLY WHAT I WAS EXPECTING!
Summary: Overall, the video and picture quality is good. You can really see issues when you zoom in as the zoom is digital, so you are loosing pixels as you increase the zoom. It is also irritating that I had to go online to download the user manual, and the link given in the "directions" included in the box...
Summary: Not the best at night or in dim lighting, but excellent in well lit areas. Motion shots are beautiful. Great range of features include action shots and HD 1080 ranges. At the price I could not say no.
