Advantages: Easy to use and good quality recording
Disadvantages: Still pictures not clear enough
My partner bought this for me as a birthday present before our son was born as we wanted to record all the special moments as he grew and this camera has done just that so far.
The camera looks slick and stylish being silver and black and looks very modern. It has a leather hand strap to keep the camera in place while recording which is very useful.
On top of the camera it has a little toggle which you can move side to side to zoom in and out while recording, it is ideally placed that it is easy to use.
The side flips out so that you can watch what you are recording and I was fascinated by this as it is so clear and the screen really is a decent size.
It comes with a charger as the recorder has a re-chargable battery it usually takes around 3-4 hours to get the battery fully charged and once it is, it seems to last a lifetime which is so handy!
To use the camera it is extremely simple and even me a techni-pobe worked it out without the instructions. It records well although sometimes it will say I am panning to fast although to me I am not moving the camera that fast! You can review what you have watched and fast forward and rewind. What I also thought was good about the camera was the sound quality on it while watching your videos. The volume turns up quite high but also everything is nice crisp and clear which surprised me.
You can also take photos on this camera, however I would warn that they aren't of the best quality and seem to have a fuzziness about them. However this didn't bother me too much as we already have a digital camera and simply wanted this to record and it does, perfectly! Would highly recommend this to others.
Summary: Perfect video recorder
