Summary: I really like this little camera - it's lightweight and fairly intuitive to use. For capturing video it's great. However, the battery isn't brilliant so you need to recharge it as often as you can (1 day of regular use seems to be about average for me) and unless you're taking photos of landscapes that function is essentially useless. It takes too long from hitting the button to actually taking the shot, which is a shame.
Summary: If what you're looking for is a high-quality digital camcorder which is nevertheless nicely pocket-portable, then this would be a great item for you. I would, however, caution potential buyers that the 'dual function' of the item is a little overrated. Whilst it works perfectly well as a digital camera, the item is set up as a camcorder and is therefore a little ungainly in its supposed second function as a camera.
Excerpt: Ormai la possibilità di fare video ad alata definizione è quasi un "Must Have", o ci si accontenta della qualità offerta dagli smartphone o dalle fotocamere "classiche" oppure si punta a videocamere che sicuramente offrono di più. Il costo di quest'ultime è molto elevato, se si vuole un ottima qualità si deve spendere almeno 500€, per questo dopo alcune ricerche mi sono affidato alla Sanyo.
