"great vacation still camera"4.0 starson by mastervi
Pros: Just went on a Disney vacation a purchased the dark gray 1200 because of it's compact size and quality. It took wonderful photos and good enough video where there was sufficient lighting. Just watched photos and video on Sony Bravia HD set. Great.
Cons: Could be better in low light situations as a video camera, but I only paid $200 and for that, it was a great investment.
Summary: I would highly recommend it for someone going on a trip who wants the option of shooting great photos and good video all in one very compact unit. I was great not having to lug around a video and photo camera. It will surprise you. That I am sure of.
