Summary: Had to send this camer back due to defect. Would not power up fully, lcd screen was not functional. After purchasing, researched troubleshooting, looks like this model has had many issues with charging and what not.
Summary: I bought this camera for recording horse shows. Like the other reviews I had a problem with the auto focus taking a long time to refocus after zooming or when another object came into view and took the focus away from the primary object. The refocus time took up to 4 seconds. In action shots, 4 seconds is an eternity. The quality of the video is great when it is in focus but for my needs the amount of time that the video was out of focus and blurry was way too much.
disappointed; especially after seeing good reviews before purchasing

Summary: all around this camera is a bit of a let down... some things you just aren't going to get in an entry level camera, and i understand that, but some things should be easy to do and aren't in there. You can't turn the screen off... so time lapse is limited to an hour or two (unless you're plugged in) there aren't many customizable settings, it's quite basic You can't turn the auto focus off, so if you do a timelapse sometimes it just slowly unfocuses itself over the period...
