Pros: Fast AF; Responsive touch screen; i-Function lens technology; Battery life
Cons: Buffer performance; Screen resolution could be higher; No in-built flash
Conclusion: Best quality footage hits 60fps at 1920 x 1080, unless you've opted for the 3D lens, in which case it's halved to 30fps. If that's a bit rich for your needs you can trim the resolution as far as 320 x 240, and the frame rate to 24fps.
