Devastated by the SC-X300/300L - do not recommend

 

I did my research and selected this camera. I took it on missions in Iraq using the helmet cam to record my experiences. It took me forever to get the video decoded to a mainstream format. Then the LCD screen went down on me and I learned it was out...

Dissapointed No Audio picking up, just video

 

Very poor video quality in low light.

Like the compact size and the Head Cam. Very simple and easy to use. Not a lot of buttons to confuse the average user

1 month past the 1 year warranty the audio pickup/capture doesn't work. I didn't plan on buying a new video cam just after 1 year. The service fee to fix this is $169, which I could go buy a refurbed one on the net for that price. Not happy

Easy searching and random access to video segments

Relatively short recording times

Very novel
