"Overall excellent experience"3.5 starson by chiground
Pros: I use the camera for my websites inteviews on chiground.com
outdoor pictures were excellent.
easy to learn how to use
easy edit functions (event though i don't use them)
once i found a format converter there was not problem with the footage
Cons: It records in mp4 which doesn't really play that well on my pc no matter what program i used.
the indoor shots require a ton of light
inaccurate lcd screen appears brighter which makes it hard to judge some shots.
the touch screen small buttons
Summary: I like the camera. If i could do it all over again i would buy it. for the price you can't beat it. I didn't see any other hd camera in the $300 range. so you get what you pay for, i am sure i could have gotten a more expensive camera, but i am sure that it would have had some problems that would have made me very angry cuz i spent so much on it. Once you find a converter then i have no problem with the footage. i just need to buy a better light for indoor videos. i recomment anyvideo converter. it is free and it solved a ton of headaches for me. cuz i don't like editing on my mac. i prefer my pc. Buy it
