4 star camera, 6 star price.

This is a really nice entry level video camera. It isn't perfect, however for the very low price I have to bump up the rating.

I am 44 years old and I Magoo my way through life with my aging eyes. I like that this camera is very simple. The display is clear and the videos I have made have all been perfect. It has worked well in low light and spectacularly well in the sunshine. The battery seems to last a very long time, so while you can't charge it and record at the same time, you do get a very lengthy period for recording. The standby battery has been very impressive as I've left it sitting for a long period (a couple of weeks between uses) and went back to find the battery still full.

This weighs almost nothing, which at first gave me the impression of being "cheap" but it really is the lightness of the batteries compared to the old video camera we used to have.

Young families without a lot of money who want to make videos of young children, this is a great camera. Aspiring filmmakers who hope to shoot a full length action movie with is may be disappointed. In this situation I believe you get more than you pay for, but not a miracle.

Mini micro sd. The mini mini one that's like the size of a pinky nail...the smallest one. Don't make the mistake of getting the larger one.
