I bought this camera to replace one that had quit working. I was suprised by how light-weight it is. I record my son's ice-hockey games and my daughters horse shows and am very pleased with the quality of the video. This is a nice, inexpensive camera that is easy to use.
I purchased this camera for my husband as a Christmas Gift but I was disappointed at how small it is. I was looking for a full size video camera since my husband fancies himself a videographer, and I thought this might work. The picture quality was ok, bu the size was so small the tripod dwarfed it. Will keep looking.
