don't buy what you can't touch

 

This camera would be OK for a small child in the learning process. Never buy something like this that you can't hold and test run, There's a lot more I could say but what's the point, some you win and some you lose, in this case I lose.

It's shiny, takes medium quality pictures

It's not made for a normal mans hand, it's so small I have a difficult time holding it without blocking the lens, the camera strap is useless to a mans hand, better suited to a small child's hand or possibly two fingers, the auto shut-off is...

Nice video camera

 

Great quality pictures! It was a little difficult to figure out how to download the pictures to the computer. The manual is complicated and somewhat confusing.

Great video, poor Wifi

 

I brought this camera to record high quality audio and video by using this camcorder with an external mixer for music auditions. This camera manual audio lets you set for a line level input. I then can quickly title and trim with my AVS Video Editor to...

Downloading Difficult

 

Decent camera overall, but owner's manual is poorly organized and hard to understand, particularly related to the downloading of video from the Hard Drive to recording DVDs or onto a computer. 3rd party software is counter-intuitive in operation and...
