The camera and casing appear to be well made. It has an inbuilt light. The 5MP CMOS sensor is adequate. It works well in a wide variety of lighting conditions. Very good accessories. The articulated screen and lens is a welcome addition.
When recording the camera does not store the information in one file, the camera stops recording every two minutes, or there about, and starts a new recording file. Although the light is a good addition it is not powerful enough to make a difference in the recording (over about 60cm). The picture quality is not very good with fast movement (perhaps mainly due to the maximum rate of 30fps). My camera CMOS sensor came with dead pixels, which was a slight disappointment. You are unable to record whilst connected to HDMI.
The camera is good for the price but it would have been a better buy without the accessories and with a higher quality recording (one continuous file) and the ability to capture 60fps in one of its HD resolutions. The camera begins to record when power is turned on which is not necessary. To have made this an exceptional buy there should have been an AV input.
You are buying an inexpensive video camera and with some of the above (although small) issues rectified this would have been a great buy. As it stands I would class the item as acceptable.
