I bought this video camera PRIMARILY for taping my golf swing. It absolutely excels in that area. Although I am surprised at how far back you have to get to fill in the frame. Being able to view the video in slo-mo is excellent.
However, I recently took the camera on vacation and was a little disappointed in it's quality.
Even shooting on 720p 60fps, the quality degrades with moving objects. I was taping family in the water at the shore and with the waves and them moving, the quality seems to degrade drastically.
BUT, I did take the camera on a log flume ride and the quality was very good, even going down the hills. Not sure why the beach scenes would be different?
When moving items are "calmer" the video quality is better. Just try to remember and stay as still as you can when taping. The more you move, the more "nauseating" the video can be. Even when using the video stabilizer.
Picture taking is very good. Not sure why so many complain about that.
But for an in-expensive (waterproof) camera I would recommend it.
