Summary: I bought this camera some years ago at the local Fry's. At the time it seemed a good idea. Had I known then what I know now I'd have never bought this. Main complaint is short battery life. 2nd main complaint is FINDING A BATTERY that is OEM and not some fly by night battery. Guess what?
Summary: I was one of the people who saw this camera at CES in January and was so impressed that I preordered it immediately after the show. I received it two months ago, and have quickly realized that the potential was way better than the actual ability of the unit.
Summary: I bought this thinking that wow I get HD quality and decent still pictures all in one compact size device. When I received it, I was happy with the size it is really very small and feels good also. However, was terribly disappointed with the video quality especially in low light conditions.
Summary: With this pup it is simple to record video or images and almost impossible to download them successfully! In standard mode, the playback of video is anything but smooth. Looks like an old time movie. The software could best be described as, "User Hostile".
Only slightly better than the first model Fisher C1

Summary: I own the Sanyo-Fisher C1 which I have had for 2 years and I love dearly. The idea of getting a HD version thrilled me and I bought one for my self to self christmas gift this year. Humbug! Video may be wider than the C1 on this model but if it is any better I couldn't see it.
Summary: This is a high quality camera that is not real easy to use. The docking station takes some effert to get a good connection, you just have to feel around until it is docked. The real disappointment is the software the camera linked with a touch of the button but after a week of trying I never did get...
Summary: Before that it was kind of nice, but it cannot focus in even semi-low light. It is definitely light and easy to take everywhere, but there are so many conditions where the results are disappointing. No way I would call the output HD quality, just the best SD ever with a 16 * 9 format.
Summary: 5 days after the one year warranty expired I turned the camera on and there was no preview image on the view screen. Everything else seemed fine, it took pictures (although blank), the sound was working, voice instructions were OK too.
