  • Summary: I like this camera for skateboarding. I have a decent fisheye lens to go along with it. The only thing this camera doesn't do very good is film in the dark. But for a starter camera this is perfect.

  • Summary: I owned one for 4 years. Does super in low light. Excellent video quality. However I had the same problem as another reviewer with hokking up to my 35 in.TV. Sound came through but no picture. I then hooked to a small 19 in. TV and it worked.

Good Enough

  • Summary: There is a lot of versatility to this camera - I like the ability to take still photos along with the filming ability - the camera quality is nice and I've recieved several compliments about the pictures it takes. The camera has trouble connecting to a AV cord to a TV the sound comes in but not the picture - I'm not sure if it's the camera or the cord - I will probably upgrade in the near future to something that has a lot of the same abilities as this camera but just on...

i like it, but not the still shots

  • Summary: Seems like everyone likes this small multy-user friendly camera. Everything jams in this camera. Small, digital with a Zeiss lens. An additional battery is helpful, but cost alot (see price. I've noticed a dink on the lcd, as if a pixel is cosntant dark blue. Its new- what happened. The still shots are weak (640px). I tried everything in photoshop, but its useless. Seems like the still shots are best outside in sunlight. I like the cam.

euro customers miss out

  • Summary: Great digital picture with as many features as will ever want. Still photo quality is very poor but this is a camcorder. Good 15 second mpeg movie great for e-mails to relatives abroad to say hello. Very small and compact design but can be a little akward as all buttons are small. The most annoying thing is that in America this camera comes with dv in and out, this means you can download to a pc edit and then record back to the film in your camera.
