NEEDS TO BE ON A TRIPOD

Great Quality, Low Battery Life

 

I bought this camera about a year ago and was really excited about it. It's compact, flips out at a moments notice, and easy to use. By the time you do all this, the batteries are dead. It uses three AAA batteries. The full life of the AAA batteries...

Could Be Better

 

This product does record very good video, it's compact and easy to use. But, the color and focus on still photos (even on the 8 mp setting) have to be edited most of the time. In addition, it drains any brand of batteries very quickly. And, there is no...
