Good price!!!

 

We use it for everyday recording & holidays. Anywhere we want to record family moment. We really like the zoom(52X) for $149!!! the low light quality isn\'t as expected but not to bad either.

Cheaply made

 

Mine arrived with the autofocus and zoom motor out of synch - had to return. The camera overall seemed flimsy and unlikely to hold up to much use. Guess you get what you pay for.

Hits all the right spots!

 

I grabbed this camera when it was on sale for too low a price to pass up. Now that I've had it a while, I would absolutely buy another one at regular price if I suddenly found myself without it. The detail is really pretty jaw-droppingly awesome. This...

Small, absolutely stunning video, slow-mo, great low-light focus, responsive touch screen, swivel face-forward screen, comfortable to hold, 30/60/240/420/720fps video, USEFUL built-in editing tools, good sound quality and on and on and on

None yet. My biggest gripe is that my monitor isn't even capable of displaying the full HD vids this cam can capture

limited optitics

 

no problem with camera at all.trying to time lapse our bird feeders from our patto doors is not going to be as tight as I was hoping for.It seems that you'll have to be fairly close to your subjects to get really tight close-ups.

great price w/promo code

it seems that at max telephoto @ 30 feet is about the same as your normal vision.I was hoping for better. samsung approved memory(toshiba,panasonic,sandisk cl 6 or 10) a bit pricey.I got adata cl 6 16gb with no problems yet.bp125a batteries not able to...
