Data recovery in process.....

 

This camera is poorly designed.

Makes great movies, but only if kept absolutely still ; It is very easy to pull the movies from the hard drive via USB

This camera is non-refunable ; I would not recommend anyone to purchase this ; If the camera is kept perfectly still, it works great; any camera movement causes the dreaded "Data Recovery is in process, avoid vibration" and the movie is lost
