"Xcellente!"5.0 starson by Tr3-bon
Pros: Takes awsome pix. Easy to use. Miniaturized DSLR like feel (you can operate with just your thumb movin)! ZOOM's superb for a very slim cam! HD 720p videos nice! Battery life excellent!
Cons: No automatic cover for the lens. "Thumbprint magnet" on the lcd screen. Cover can be easily broken but bearable. Noisy when focusing on video recording. Mono sound on video recording.
Summary: I was looking for a point & shoot cam since I bought a DSLR sony a300 (which I really like) so I can carry it on my pocket for those occasions that I can't have a big cam on my neck without sacrificing great pix.
I checked and compared and fell in love with the H20.
I decided to purchase and it was a great decision. Impressed on how small and compact for a zoom cam and the pix it took are awesome. The video it took was great. 720p can't complain about that! This was one of my factors buying this cam cuz of it's HD recording.
Taking pix was.. FFFASSSTTT! (although sometimes focusing is sluggish but depends on the settings).
all in all..
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT IF YOUR LOOKING FOR AN EASY PORTABLE CAM THAT TAKES DSLR LIKE PIX!
I say CNET should review this and if they say it's not a great camera..THEY ARE WRONG....
