Great product!

by JR on 6/26/2012

I would recommend this camera to everyone. It shoots excellent footage for web videos. The only problem I think it has is that there is no microphone jack. That would have made it the best out there. Oh, yeah, there is one other problem, they stopped making them so go get one now! Excellent pocket video camera.
