steadyshot could be better. I found the hand grip a bit awkward to use, cured that by using a pistol grip. editing software not very good

clint, Chester Just point and shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Light weight, easy fits in coat pocket, quick start up, point and shoot live or camera shots. Small USB charge cable built into strap good idea less to carry on travels. You do start leaving camera and binoculars at home
Bad points:
Taking a photo while in camcorder film mode in play back you can hear clicking, but this did not really bother me. I do advise to get a second battery if using unit in cold climates, mine ran rather low I was in the artic circle in winter though.
