Don't buy this camera


camera charger failed right away, camera is poor quality at best and when you send it back to microtek they take the camera and that is it.

none, camera failed immedeately and i am still waiting for a replacement from the micrtek company. it has been 6 weeks since i sent the camera back and no hope they stole my money

no real warranty they send for your camera and never replace it. so i lost all my money and no camera do not use pricegrabber or tigerdirect they are rip offs

MV500 top notch for the dollar


This is a great camera for the price.

High quality pictures, extremely small, durable body.

Have to hold the camera extremely still, pictures take a while to take. Also the video has to be in EXTREMELY light areas. Hard to see inside.
