Very poor camera

Summary: I read the reviews and thought I'd still give it a try. After one battery charge, I was "lucky" enough to have a defective unit - the camera wouldn't start again after the first charge. My observations from that first short use were: - Quality of pictures was very poor (my Pentax Optio 4mp camera takes better quality photos) -- very disapointing for a 6mp camera.
Summary: I really wanted to love this camera. The camera is compact and could fit into the pocket of my jeans! I did plenty of research before choosing to buy this camera so I expected all the quarks of the unit mentioned in other reviews. The 30 frames per second uninterlaced video is good - of course it's not as good as full resolution 60 fields per second video... but the unit fits into my pocket!
Summary: Pictures quality is mediocre. Night video is terrible. Stills for night shots, again unacceptable. Never should supplement this for a regular camcorder. If you are into small gadget high tech toy camcorder, buy yourself an Apteck MPVR. Takes pretty good shots, same size as this, and costs just $200. Save the difference and invest in a decent camcorder like, perhaps, a Canon Optura 600 or similar.
