Summary: I bought this camera because I was hoping for a small, portable camcorder that would also take okay pictures. I brought it on a family beach vacation for a week and returned it as soon as I got back. First of all, I should have tried the water resistant/proof model instead - I don't know what I was thinking. The camcorder and the camera are both pretty good in sunlight/outdoor situations. They pretty much stink indoors or if you need to use the flash.
Summary: I will start by saying that this is a wonderful item. I love the idea of having a video and picture camera in one little gadget. My brother has the previous model and I felt in love with it so I bought the C6 which comes with better features. Unfortunately I've had a very bad experience with the item which I think it is defective. I bought this item at J&R and I had to exchange it several times.
