Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
The sound recording is questionable. when playing back a recording from outdoors it seems as there is a gale blowing. I have tried covering up the microphone with tape but no improvement. Apart from that everything elsein the use of the cameera is fine.
