Terrible sound


Still picture quality is alright. Lithium battery life lasts about half an hour while recording

Sound on video is virtually non-existent. I can't figure out where the mic is located, but the mic will pick up on jostling sounds any time the camera is moved. Other than that, it doesn't pick up on almost any sound at all. This was a complete waste...
