Good camera, don't buy for HD capabilities
on June 21, 2011
What can I say? It takes great pictures! It does a lot of stuff! I love how it uses battery backs instead of AA batteries! The zoom works very nice! The video quality is pretty decent!
The only thing I can say is that if you're looking for a camera to take good HD video this isn't the best choice. SD quality is EXCELLENT but the HD quality really looks no better than the SD quality. It has a kind of grainy look to it and is widescreen format.
All in all it's a great camera. Personally, I paid extra for this model over other models because of its HD video modes. Keep in mind the video quality isn't BAD but it isn't as good as some better models.
However, for a sub $100 camera its quality is pretty decent.
