    I bought this for my son for Christmas. So far he loves it. He is still learning how to use it, but as of right now he is happy with it. Shipping was crazy fast. Ordered one day, got it the next.

  • Great Camera for serious hobbyists

    This video camera is expensive but the quality, features and functionality is worth every penny. We use it for our grandson's high school football games. It has a great zoom while maintaining focus thru the zoom. The battery and 128 SD memory cards last more than 2 hours.
