I wish it would zoom back more!
10 August 2012
Summary: I haven't used it a lot but what use I have given it seems to be good . I do wish it would zoom back more ,up close you have to be careful not to cut off the subjects heads. The picture quality and sound is good.
Great HD quality and features. But not very waterproof for frequent users.

Summary: This camcorder is a heavy, compact camcorder that produces very high quality HD video, but beware of its somewhat poor waterproof abilities. Its video is very nice HD at a good frame rate, and its audio is good. The video is exceptional underwater. With its powerful zoom as well, it works very well in outdoor scenarios. The photos are not very good.
Summary: I bought this for filming surfing. My $30 cell phone has better video quality than this piece of junk. The first time I used it underwater(about 1ft under) the lens fogged up and the footage was unusable! The second time I used it underwater it stopped working. If you need an underwater camera, get a GoPro, or any other HD point and shoot with an underwater housing... maybe a Canon Elph, with an underwater housing(if they make one).
Summary: This thing is great! It's very simple to use and has a ton of good features. It wasn't complicated to learn about - the instruction booklet and software that come with it make it easy to transfer videos right onto a computer or DVD. I haven't used it underwater yet, but it seems very durable.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Simple Controls
