Summary: if you intend to make HD home video on a budget, this is a great device. If you plan to use it as a camera at all you will be disappointed. The "16 megapixel" camera has an image quality i have not seen since my first 1.2 megapixel camera.The controls are not intuitive, so avoid this product if you can not easily figure out how to operate imported electronic devices.The auto flash is a manual setting, instead of an auto setting in camera mode.
Summary: The problem with buying a perfect gift then playing with it, is that You want one too. This thing did everything, Video and let you still take pictures while it was still videoing. It's small, It's about as big as the LG phones from Verizon. I want one for myself now.
Summary: I bought this for my husband for Christmas. He couldn't get over how small it is, but he really likes it. He wanted a digital camcorder where he could upload short clips to the internet. This little honey fills the bill. It's not a professional grade camcorder by any means, but it works for what we need. It's easy to use, play back, and easily transport films to friends and family via the internet. We just got this, so it's early days. No problems so far.
Summary: This camcorder is a great value and does everything it is suppose to do. It is very small; however, it takes good pictures and the video is pretty good considering the over all price. I had mentioned the size. That is an attribute, because it is small enough to fit in your pocket. I take with me all of the time, because of the size. How many times have you needed a camera / camcorder, but it was too big to take with you. I would recommend this product to everyone.
