Greatest gift


I couldn't be happier with this camera, I would buy it for anyone who needs a new camera. The only issue I have is I can't just use the USB cord to upload straight from the camera to my laptop.

Great cam


I wasn't sure if this would work well recoding indoor volleyball games but it did a pretty good job! I am very happy! Great option to just set it on the bleachers or use a tripod! Wide angle lens or close up works great depending on where you set it up.

The GoPro for the rest of us


We bought it to use as a second static camera in an instructional video. We then synced the footage with the primary camera in final cut pro. Worked great. Our primary is a Canon G20. The Mini's controls are similar to the G20, so it's easy to...

I think this little camera is good, but it needs a couple of improvements. Main issues I had was not being able to turn off the screen while I'm recording. The screen is touchscreen so you have to be very careful not to touch anything while you're...
