Confirmed purchaser Just point and shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent little camera. Easy to use, easy to have in your bag being the size of a mobile phone. Put together some good movies which will be good to look back on.
Bad points:
When making movies it takes about four hours to put it together. This could be because I use an older computer, it may be quicker on a more up to date one .

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
so small it can be carried almost anywhere without the slightest feeling of encumberance, so simple to use. switch it on and you're filming in three seconds flat! as a point and shoot video with astounding image and sound quality it really is just about perfect.
then there is the software....................plug it into a usb port and you can do just about anything you want vith the footage.........transfere to laptop/pc.........upload to web.................make movies.........take still pictures................store videos on 'my channel' which is rfree and allows the storage of all your clips remotely and can accessed from any computer by simply giving user name and password!
Bad points:
if making serious video with professional digital effects is your aim then this is not the camcorder for you .......but for most of us looking to record all lifes fun events , big moments , holidays etc it really is unbeatable .

Confirmed purchaser

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Smart looking camera that is simple to use with really good software for editing and sharing clips - really intuitive.
Bad points:
this is best for filming people talking, as the shot is quite narrow. The zoom is limited so you can't pan back to take in more of the room/scene. I also thought that the lens would flip out, which it doesn't. It's permanently exposed - ok if you keep it in the case.
