The HD video recorder is what initially attracted me to this camera. The quality of the video is great as viewed on my Macbook and it looks just as high quality on Youtube.
This camera is certainly worth the low price. Give it a shot. Would make a great gift for young photogs.
I mostly used the SD card for transferring videos and photos but the direct USB transfer worked well too. The shot options are subtle but good. You can better tell the difference once the pictures are loaded into a computer and printed.
It stopped working after a few years. The lens will not retract, the LCD screen will not turn on. I've tried new batteries, using air duster etc. It's long past the warranty time and it's been a good camera. Time for a new one, sadly.
I loved being able to customize the faceplate!! I used my own original art, photos, and a custom sticker from a voucher that came with the camera.
If your not one for hype products and don't mind simplicity this is still a solid camera option.
All in all Im pretty happy with it. I took it to my dear friend's daughter's first birthday party today and was really satisfied with all the pictures I took. The only ones I deleted were due to uncooperative babies, not an incapable camera. That says a lot. So, if you arent expecting the world, this is a pretty neat little camera. I just worry that it wont withstand every day wear and tear. ::shrug:: We'll see.
The camera is very straight forward, the screen is a good size, and the buttons are adequate and clearly labeled. This camera makes it hard to make mistakes.
The downside was the fact that I didn't have a camera on my trip and also the face that you can change faceplated. In my opinion this added a little bit to the width of the camera and is just unnecessary (for me at least).
Other then that I would buy it again.
One negative is that it feels somewhat cheaply made, especially the casing and the buttons in the back. It's a little bulkier than I expected too. But neither of these really bother me so much. I was just looking for a cheap camera I could use to take pictures with when I go out.
I'm not much of a video person, so I can't give much input on that aspect.
Overall, it's better than I expected given the price I paid.
