"Looks great, portable & easy to use"4.0 starson by dowenbc
Pros: Small enough to not be a borhter carrying around. Very easy to use with large view finder to see what you are doing.
Cons: Software is a joke.
Downloaded video file to computer and could not play with VLC media player or Windows Media Player. You will have to use third party software to convert file into a format that is recognised by other devices.
No flash on camera.
Summary: Would purchase again but only as a video camera. Those looking at the 12MP as a camera replacement should reconsider as digital zoom becomes pixelated and there is no flash. You need skill with 3rd party video editing softwareto convert file format, don't understand why VLC Media Player had trouble with the file format but I'm not some idiot who can't read instructions - spent many hours converting file formats for different purposes before I purchased this video camera.
Video looks good on 55" TV and the 80min capacity on HD is no problem unless you plan to shoot a remake of Jaws in one take, then you're going to need a bigger 'boat'.
