Budget priced compact video camera
It seems to do everything well enough as most would use it, but on extreme long distance the auto-focus is nowhere as sharp and steady as my earlier Panasonic 770M ( which no longer handles the long range auto-focus at all) but I guess at less that 40% of the price of a comparable to the 770M (no longer available) it's a simple case of you usually get what you pay for.
It is very compact, has a small but chunky battery but that goes for well over 2 hours and you can buy compatibles. It has a sizeable, every which way, screen, and the usual buttons.
That screen is pretty hopeless outdoors in bright light, OK indoors. A real pain is that you cannot simply download to your PC using the USB cable. You either have to use their software (which doesn't recognise the camera to allow me to even download it) or take the card out and use a reader. If you take the card out while it's doing something it will corrupt it. It warns you about that. It can be fixed but only if you are a bit savvy of such.
Can only give it 3 stars because of this unacceptable design shortfalls,
