"I really tried to convince myself this was worth it... NOT!!!"1.5 starson by miklskon
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.
