Summary: Picture quality is not bad but i cannot see much differance between the sanyo and my panasonic 3ccd.tape machine . as i said the menu controls are impossible to use if you do not have very small fingers. and the still photos take a long time to take. with the grand kids the moment has gone. I also think it is a bit overprced.
Pros: picture movie quality allthough at times you have to pan very slowly to avoid picture judder
Cons: still photos take for ever, controls i.e menues etc are impossible to use if you dont have the fingers of a 6 year old waterproof it may be but it will not stand a drop from two feet
Summary: ..........but depends what you want. As an under water camera/video its pretty good. Its easy to hold and looks good, although the pink colour is probably a bit shocking for some people! It appears to be well made too. And you do get HD recording. The film quality, however, isn't great. I agree still photos are better but you are buying a camcorder here not a camera. For the price, video picture playback can only be said to be average. So it depends what you want.
