Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I love this camera! I just got it yesterday and it only took about an hour to master the set up and charging. I used the online product guide for more detailed instructions since what came in the box didn't really explain things all that well. Every thing about the camera is pretty idiot proof, meaning that I could use it straight out of the box with out too much online help. The online guide is easy to sort through as well and I know this can probably do a lot more than what I plan on using the camera for.
The camera has a nice white finish and is easy to wipe off, it is pretty light and will easily slip into a pocket. I like the carrying strap provided although it doesn't make a big fashion statement in ugly industrial gray. The still pictures are amazingly clear and once I figured out the flash part for lighting, I was equally impressed. I didn't even need the instructions to figure that out. It connects directly to your computer through a dongle or direct USB connection and loads to your preset Windows' picture file. The USB port is really cool since it just pops out after pushing a button. There are setting to allow you to load directly to You Tube or a variety or other sites, but I haven't tried that yet but it looks easy.
Taking short movie clips is where this camera really shines and it does really well both in low light and bright sunshine. I wanted this to capture some dog film and some short interviews and the definition is really amazing. The sound is in mono but extremely clear and records at the perfect level. I ran the camera and hour and half before the battery died. I also didn't use the light function that much since I think that really drains the battery. Overall, if you are looking to take short videos and a few still pictures, this is a great camera to own.
