Advantages: 60fps, Cheap, Portable
Disadvantages: Battery life, Bad in low light conditions,
A couple of months ago I was looking around to find a new video camera for my videos that runs in 60 frames a second meaning smoother videos and HD format. Well if you want your camera to work really well in low light conditions then carry on looking because this is not the camera for you. If you want it for HD daylight pictures then look no further! This camera is HD, it is portable, it fits in your pocket, it records to SD card, it runs at 60 frames a second format, and takes up to 12 megapixel pictures all on one unit! For £130 this is a steal!!
The battery life on this camera is not great. You can look at about a hour MAXIMUM battery life from what I have found. This is from experimentation in 720p HD format though. If you want to go to full HD 60fps then it could be reduced further? There is no denying that in that full format though the pictures are fantastic. You can see almost every detail and because it is so portable I can keep it in my pocket and pull it out whenever I need to!
So to conclude, if you are looking for a portable HD camera to work in high lighting conditions then this is great. The lack of external mic can sometimes be an annoyance but the in built one is not actually too poor. Great camera for a great price then!
Summary: It's cheap, has some great features and fits in your pocket!
