Summary: The camera was missing a cord that I expected to come with it. I had purchased the camera elsewhere originally (but it was a display model and had issues), and that one had had a cord with it to connect to the computer.
Awesome little Camera - Once you read the instruction manual

Summary: You can usually buy a point and shoot camera and figure it out with out reading the instructions - this is not a point and shoot camera - it is more like a small digital SLR camera. lots of options and ability for manual settings.
Summary: I had an older model of this camera. I got it because at the time I wanted to take indoor photos to sell my house & I needed a wider angle lens than anything I had, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money. I was surprised at how wonderful that little camera was.
Summary: The sensor is mediocre for taking pictures, but I think this is better served as a cheap HD 1080p video camera. Best for performance or "stiller" recording. Keep in mind, it records at 30fps. It stops at 29 minutes of recording, there is no way around this, whatsoever.
Summary: Takes really clear pictures, even when zoomed way in. The only gripe I have, is why is it so hard to find a battery for this camera.. on eBay, the only place to get it is from Hong kongand it says to make sure it matches the model number, which the picture did not, so I'm not ordering from them...
Summary: Confession time. I am not a professional photographer. Those of you who hate amateur reviews, and downvote them, go crazy. The rest of you, I'll assume, are willing to read a review from someone who doesn't know, or especially care, what F-Stop is.
