Summary: Got this camera on a great deal for like $150 during the holiday season over a year ago for my oldest daughter. It's a great camera except the battery life on the included battery is really horrible, lasts like 10 minutes.
Summary: I am not a serious photographer and I wanted something simple to operate to take short videos. Even with the stability option, this camcorder is quite "shake-y". I would suggest using only with a tripod.

Summary: Not bad for the price. Good if you are a Windows user. Not good if you are a MAC user. It makes Windows compatible movie files not MPGs. Included software is not worth installing. Native Windows video and image tools are adequate for simple editing. 32 Gig cards are hard to find and expensive.
