I just received this camera today, and I haven't yet gotten around to testing all of the features yet, but I like it so far.

The macro function (a switch near the lens seems to move the lens a little to change the focus depth) works pretty well for close-up shots of small objects, although with the fixed-focus lens you have to move the camera closer or farther from the object being photographed in order to get a good focus. Thanks to the zoom, however, you can keep the object framed just how you like it once you get it focused.

The 8x digital zoom is impressive, and the stabilization feature comes in very handy when you're taking still shots at full zoom.

The OS list in the description above is just for the included software, not the camera. I plugged it in to my Ubuntu Linux computer, and it worked just fine. It appeared in my /media folder, and I was able to access the videos and images in the camera. The camera appears as one external drive whether you have an SD card loaded or not, only the size of the external drive changes depending on the SD card. One downside, when you plug the camera in to your computer, you need to open the LCD screen to turn on the camera and set the connection. A separate button or something would have been better in my opinion. I like that the videos are saved as .AVI instead of some weird proprietary format that requires the included software to work with.

The camera ships with 4 AAA batteries, yet it has contacts in the battery compartment for an optional rechargeable Li-Ion battery (NP60, pretty cheap here on Amazon) for longer life. It does not appear that plugging the camera in to the USB port on your computer will charge the battery, yet it does provide power to the camera when the batteries are removed.

Bought this because it's 720p and takes batteries (I'm tired of charging Lithiums.) It's quick and makes good video in bright light. No zoom except digital. No optical stabilization - digital only. When the light changes, the iris' adjustments are sudden and noticeable in finished video. Controls are confusing but give you enough choices. No way to plug in microphones; you're stuck with the on-camera mic which will pick up every hand twitch. Battery life (4 AAAs) is roughly two hours before it quits. Software very confusing and limited. On a PC you can burn AVCHD DVDs which play in some BluRays - that's nice. If you want to save video as files for editing in software other than that provided, you'll be working hard to find ways to convert them. Basically a box camera that shoots HD video but requires some effort to prepare to edit. For the price, I'm satisfied. (Includes NO software for Mac.)

This is not the best camera in the world, but for doing Youtube videos and vlogging, it is about all you really need. I can't speak to the still picture quality, but the video quality is very good. Camera appears to be reasonably well made, and it does have a stand mount on the bottom, which I don't think was mentioned in the description. I use it to record seminars and I can easily get two-three 3-4 hour seminars on one set of 4-AAA batteries. Overall, very pleased with this camera. If it lasts a year I'll buy another one, because again, at $30, what do you expect?

We were given this camera as a wedding present and we totally love it! It takes way better pictures than either of our cameras, even when you zoom in really close. It's only downfall is that it doesn't have a flash when taking pictures, just an illumination light in the front. But, the intent of this camera is for video, the still camera is just a bonus. Most of the time, it can draw enough light to where you don't need the flash. It is small and very handy to carry in your purse so it is there when you need it.

This is useless as far as I'm concerned. When recording is recording a very bad humming noise. It has no microphone plug to plug in a microphone away from it. I tried contacting support and sending email, I got no answer. I will never buy from this company again.

The shipping and packaging on this were fine and the item was as described as far as looks. It is easy to use and ready within minutes. This camera goes through batteries like crazy and only holds a small amount of videos. My son purchased this to make YouTube clips and he filled the memory within the first hour of having it. It is fine for a starter camera and it functions fully, but it is not the thing for long or multiple videos and the quality is just ok. I find this best suited for younger kids compared to other options.

One thing about this camera was very important to me, it does not have a battery that has to be put on a charger every 30 minutes, it takes 4 AAA batteries, which have lasted about 1 1/2 hours of non stop recording time. Plus the ability to take a 32 gb SD card was also a plus. Zooming in causes the image to get really distorted/pixelated, but other than that, great camera especially for the PRICE !

This is a very nice camcorder that was a great deal at $60. Pros for this includes:

-Above average video quality
-Easy to edit clips on WMM
-Nice features that allows you to adjust the quality of the film to the environment you're recording in
-Easy to hold while recording without tripod

It does have flaws, however. They include:

-Sensitive mic that picks up even the littlest of sounds (such as the sounds of the camcorder components operating inside)
-Short battery life
-Not durable; must take extra care with it.
-Film becomes blurry when zoomed in

If you're looking for something good to film YouTube videos with, this camcorder is for you. I don't recommend this for family and community events (such as weddings, church, sport games, concerts, etc.) as this camcorder drains battery power fairly quickly. Speaking of batteries, make sure to only use one brand as using different ones may damage the camcorder (according to the manual). Durability wise, as long as you read the manual and take good care of the camcorder, you'll be fine.
