Pros:
Quick startup, Good bright for indoor recording. Long video recording with 16Gb SD (more than 4 hours at 720x480). Easy to connect to the TV and computer. The TFT screen is good. The microphone is good.
Cons:
Mode changing button seems to be very fragile; 720p recording only at 20fps (all other modes support 30fps). Colors are not very real when recording outdoor. TV out is not high definition, the resolutions is standard, just to "preview" in my opinion. Photo quality is not very good.
Other:
Avoid to watch the videos in the camera, for some reason the framerate is reduced (like watching in slowmotion), when playing in the PC the speed is normal.
Bottomline:
I recommend the product to simple recordings, it is very cheap so its ok. Is a good camera to use indoor with good lighting conditions.
