I bought this camera over a year ago and am very happy with it. Firstly its small, i can fit it in my pocket, its not that comfortable but i can if needed. I find this great if i just want to have it with me in case.
It comes with alot of great features too. 3 different qualities of recording, sound too, which you can turn off if you want, excellent zoom, different lighting effects. Also a nifty little feature called pre-recording, basically it records and hold a ten second loop so that if you press record it records from ten seconds ago, great if your slow to get to the recorb button. It also has a very easy playback system and a pretty good battery life of about 2 hours of constant use, the stabilisation mode is als very good, meaning all that blair witch style camera shaking is smoothed out. It also has a still picture mode, its not great quality but will do.
the only drawback is the low light shooting. it doesn't do too well. it comes out grainey and dark. if you intend to use it at night i wouldn't recomend it. The file naming system is a little odd an the software not particularly good either. the naming means that any other software you use though will get the files in a funny order when uploaded.
