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 was incorrect. The cover over the memory card slot is about as poorly designed as it can be, and I doubt it will be long before it breaks.
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. I would replace this only for action mounted cameras like Go Pro since its's too awkward to use like an action cam, but is wonderful on a tripod taking time lapse.
Summary: I love my Xacti. It shoots terrific video in daylight. In the dark not so good, and photos taken with this camera are not the best quality either. But if you know this, and only need to shoot until the sun goes down, this camera is just awesome.
Summary: Video & Photo in the same device with FHD picture quality. Small size, can carry it anywhere anytime and easily in your pocket. Excellent value for money. I would definitly recommend this product to a friend.
Summary: I had been in the market for a camera and wanted something that was cheap and shot good video. This delivers. Pro's: -HD picture. Records very sharp image. -Easy user interface -Small and sturdy -Pullout adjustable screen is very convenient and enables self recording -Added bonus of a 10mp camera Con's: -The screen quality leaves a lot to be desired.
Summary: its a great video camera for the money... the only flaw is the flash is below the lens. I have to hold the camera upside down to use the flash or I will see unwanted shadows. As far as image quality its great for the price... easily beats most hand held point and shoot cameras with the same mega-pixels. A real camera will do slightly better but cost 4x more; this fantastic for an on the go camera or any internet video.
Summary: This is nice camera, however it doesn't include any software to convert from full hd to hd, if you record using full hd you will have to buy a recent software for video editing or search the internet for free utilities to acomplish this task, which without knowing too much about codecs et all, it could be a really time consuming task.
