  • Good stuff for good value

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Beautiful picture when viewing angle includes very bright areas in contrast with darker (snow with clear sky).

    - Robust body of camera with easy control.

    Cons:

    - Really quiet microphone. Contrasts with loudly noise from buttons handling.

    - Included battery self-discharges very quickly. After 1 week of charging and not using, it was fully discharged.

    - I was unable to charge battery in included external charger. Charging inside camera works fine.

    - Plastic mounts are made from extremely brittle plastic, it breaks very easily (in my case at home during setting up).

    - When scene contain area with similar brightness (e.g. wood, landscape with cloudy sky), it is overexposed and very bright. But someone could like it.

    - My packaging didn't include car charger.

    OtherThoughts:

    - Stored data are in XviD codec with very reasonable quality settings.

    - Good improvement would be the presence of manual exposure value setting.

    Bottomline:

    Good stuff with good price. Unfortunately, it has some bugs that protect it from being excellent.
