Summary: Wish I read more about the Product, Failed to state that SOFTWARE NOT Compatible with Windows 7 or 8, unable to edit my video. 3D, isn't 3D at all, claims you can watch it on the device with the glasses they provided, NOT! Pictures Okay for the price of $40.00 and video sub-standard even for the price. I love Viewsonic Products, this may have been cutting edge when made in 2009, but is now out-dated.
Summary: I purchased this item with the hope of at least getting "Flip" quality video. I loved the form factor, expandable memory option and several video options. After using it (with firmware update), I can't tell anyone enough how poor the video quality is with this camera. It is very grainy and noisy. I have to say that it is unwatchable. The camera has potential in future designs, but for $100 more, take my advice and buy the Sony Bloggie 3D.
Summary: As others have suggested, this is (at best) a "work in progress" and was not ready for market item. I bet ViewSonic and others ( COME ON FLIP 3D !!) will perfect this to a level where one could get acceptable results. Unfortunately, we are 'not quite there'. The screen on the back is novel, and can be fun to show-off for short periods of time- you (somewhat oddly) se INTO the picture, rather than things popping out, you can demo this as you switch between 2-D and 3-D.
