Pros There are none
Cons Dark picture, crappy build, ******* like 3 fps
"Waste of $$$"on by Stygimoloch
Pros OK pictures, compact form
Cons Webcam quality video. .ASF files
Summary This thing is a waste of money if it's more than $50. The videos are Windows media .ASF files NOT .mp4 or .mpeg. Video is no way any better than a $30 webcam at any res or quality. Photos are a mix. Some are good some are blurry.
Zoom IS WORTHLESS. Unviewable in video and very blurry in photos.
I got screwed out of $200 for it, don't do the same.
Pros decent digital camera, but I already have one of those.
Cons absolutely pathetic video in any setting. waste of time and $
Summary OK, I picked this item up used for a song, like $50.00, and figured I couldn't go wrong, but I was wrong. Yah, the photos are super, so if that is what you are looking for, go for it. But I already have a nice digital camera. I was looking for a budget video camera for basic video, but this does not even fit that bill. I really really tried to convince myself that this video camera would work for just basic video, but frankly, I gotta face the facts, this stinks. Not only is the zoom worthless, as others have said, but even the 1X is poorly focused and very grainy. I can't use it.
Pros The small size is nice. The price is right
Cons Digital zoom makes video unwatchable; Shooting video fills up a 512mb card fast.
Summary The small size and the price of this camera is what attracted me to it in the first place. However, after using the camera on vacation out West this summer, I wish I hadn't wasted my money. Still pictures were very good. Video was terrible and zooming made it unwatchable. I would not recommend this camera to anyone who's a serious photographer or videographer.
Pros It takes nice pictures, and is very easy to use. It was well worth its price
Cons Small screen, bad sound quality, no optical zoom, works ok under light differences.
