little battery life. I was expecting more. when I captured video as mp3, video quality was not good I dont know if it was software problem. I used Sonic Digital LE. Anyone wanna suggest me what software should I use to capture the video at best quailty but minimun or reasonable size.

Philip, Hartlepool

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy cam mode makes this a point and shoot camera but quite sophistocated in manual mode.Loads of features for the price and it fits snugly into the palm of my hand.USB connection and DV out.
Bad points:
No memory card slot for stills.I did'nt want that feature but others might.It does take a still image on tape and an acceptable print can be obtained.
