Pros light-weight, easy to use, takes nice photos
Cons Grainy or blurry videos indoors, can't zoom in well on individual players (i.e. soccer), recorded sound is often distorted
Summary I bought this camera to shoot my children playing in soccer games, but it doesn't have the zoom capability. I then wanted to use it to create stop-action videos indoors, but the videos were very grainy or blurry, even with good lighting. It makes a good camera, but I already have a camera. I'm now in the market for a better camcorder.
Pros easy to turn on & start shooting
Cons very bad zoom & microphone; navigation clumsy to hard
Summary A good basic video camera but you'll soon long for better quality sound & zoom. This camera could use an external mic option. Zooming renders objects very blurry. Easy to take snapshots too. Uses standard & high speed SD card - a plus. I'm always wishing I had the manual nearby because after flipping thru the options several times and not able to find what I'm looking for is frustrating (like how to use the flash for a photo...) LCD display is adequate but basic. I keep wishing I'd spent a little more for a better version.
