I originally purchased one f these from The Home Shopping Network last year. It took very good videos and I was able to burn them with the manufacturers program (downloaded from their website) on my laptop computer. They came out extremely clear. So I purchased this one for my son and DIL so they could take pictures of their new baby. It is very easy to have on hand at all times because it is so light. It came in many colors on HSN but Amazon only had it in red. HSN no longer sells them unfortunately. I would have given it a 5 str rating, but I have a hard time remembering which buttons to push which is probably my fault. The instructions are printed in very small print also is another reason.
