So small and light, you can carry it around everywhere in a shirt pocket. Records excellent quality video with sound and still photos onto SD card. Good enough to show on a PC or widescreen TV. Easy to use once you have grasped the basics, choose from full auto or manual setting for focus, light, aperture etc.
Battery life is about 1 hour whereas you can video for 3 to 5 hours on a 4GB SD card (depending on quality settings). You need a spare battery or two.
The built in flash is quite weak, only good enough for close ups of people etc.
Good build quality but quite delicate, don't drop it !
Very impressed overall with the quality and value for money. This little gadget replaces both a camera and video recorder with excellent results, especially using the highest quality video setting. It comes with a range of software for downloading and basic video editing onto your PC.
