Summary: Great camera to record under water. I've used on my last vacations at the sea and the swimming pool and works fine. The lens fogs sometimes. But when leave under the sun for 2 minutes the problem is fixed. The digital zoom isn't good. When you past the 5x, the images turns pixelated. The camera Don't have image stabilization. At least I don't find it. But the good thing is that you can carry it in your pocket and be ready for any moment that you want to make a shoot.
Summary: My friend got the yellow one and after seeing the quality of video it took, I decided to get one that was a returned item for like $40. The first video I took was awesome. I hung a bird feeder from the eave of our shed and attached the camileo to the shed, like a foot and a half away. I pressed record, ran inside and then looked out the window. A cardinal flew up and started eating the seed. It flew away and after a while some other birds showed up.
Summary: I really love this camcorder, it makes great HD movies, even underwater, and fits in your pocket. The image is very good, colors are bright, even in low light you can get good results. The only downside is that battery life is short. Maybe the camera drains energy even when it's turned off, and often I find the batteries are dead when I pick the camera after it's been stored for some time.
