Summary: We bought this camera before a safari trip and overall are very happy with it. If I could change two things, it would be that there is less of a delay between snapping the photo and the photo being taken and that it was better quality at night. I think these two problems, however, are pretty consistent with most of the cameras I have owned.
Summary: I bought the camera to use for improving my golf swing using the high speed capability. It was easy to use and I was able to see for myself the issue I needed to resolve. It also is handy for hd movies if you are not interested in movie resolutions.
Summary: Good product specially with the high speed video function is very useful for sport record. But there have some problem with the one that I bought, It look like there've some leak or short circuit because I heard some noise, and the battery can use for only short time.
Summary: Very nice high speed video recording. Very good to capture golf swing and other sports activities at high frame rates and then to do analysis. Great capability at an affordable price (last year's discontinued model). This offers better high speed video resolutions than the current comparable model.
Great for a travel camera and high speed @ 39FPS allows you to catch it all

Summary: Very good photo quality and once you are used to the menus everything flows well. Easy for anyone to use. If you are looking for a full manual control P&S this is not for you, but if you are using for family, vacation and all around photos I would recommend this camera.
Summary: I purchased this camera for the sole reason that it does high-speed capture. While the 1,000 fps has very grainy, small format videos, the 450 fps videos are awesome! I was pleasantly surprised by the usefulness and clever presets that make switching between modes quick and easy. It does not use standard mini-USB which I found annoying since it means that I have to bring an extra cable with me, but the little camera bag I picked up takes care of that.
Summary: Much better slow motion than I expected at this size and price. Can do continuous on a 32 gig sd for a good long while. I mostly use the 120 fps, because above there you lose a lot of resolution and you have to be very well lit, and I really only needed it slowed down a bit. Very fun to explore what looks interesting at slow motion.
Summary: I bought this for slow motion video. I have a Canon 5D MarkII, a CanonS95, a Canon G-9 and a Canon G-11. I know cameras. And I know how to use them. I haven't yet opened the .pdf on the CD which comes with the camera but I've figured out how to use it's usual settings. IT takes fine photos. It will not take low light without flash photos like my $2400, 70-200 F/2.8 lens for the 5D. There is a REASON the equipment to take those photos cost so much.
Summary: We use it mostly at the golf course in video mode. We use both the high speed and normal speed video and love it. If you want to be able to really look at your swing and break it down this is a great option. HD is really good.
