Summary: I bought this 'dual camera' as an emergency replacement when my old video camera blue screened a week before my family vacation. Two weeks in Disney World and it was near flawless. The video was great. The pictures were good for the most part.
Rich in features, Poor in picture quality but Best Bang for the Buck

Summary: I picked up one of these locally, intending to replace my MinoHD with it. This camera ended up being a disappointment to me. I really want to like it, but the reality is that the picture quality disappoints compared to the MinoHD.
Summary: For the price, it is a good product. It is great for home videos and also serves as a photographic camera. Two problems I had: for a video camera advertised as HD, the quality of the image is not good enough; and the battery discharges way too fast!
Summary: Camcorder might have been great BUT it can record only 45 minutes on a fully charged battery. The DC power adapter mentioned in the manual was not released in the USA and could not be found outside the USA. Interrupting a recording to swap the battery is unacceptable for our use.
Summary: The features seem good as listed, but the end result simply isn't good enough if your aim is to use this as an HD camcorder. Despite using the manual controls, I never could get anything but soft video even with the image stabilization turned off.
