This camera, like most digital cameras, is best suited for sunny outdoor use or well lit indoor filming. I used it to film a wedding in a basement and the picture quality was about VGA quality I'd have to say. No where near as high def as I would have liked but passable for a $$$ camera. I shot a demo video outside and the picture was fantastic. Sound pickup is adequate but won't turn any heads. All in all, it's a bit better than I expected for a $$$ camera and if you're looking for something to shoot a video of the kids at Disney Land without breaking the budget, this is your camera. I compared the video between it and an iFlip and it was much better. The only thing it was lacking that would have been nice (If it exists at all) would be an anti shake setting. This would be nice because it is a bit awkward to film with and therefore the video tends to be shaky. I shot off a tripod which helped.
