Great purchase


I have used this several times at the 720p 60fps setting, and it give a great HD picture. It also takes good pictures, but I think the camcorder function is the best way to use it. I would definitely recommend having a high speed high capacity SD card....

Great camera. Easy for a teenager to use along adults with no electronics sense. Others report this to be a sluggish camera but I have not seen that. Can say that a High Speed memory card is recommended if using in the HD 720 or 1080p modes.
