- Video recording quality Using to record my boys' wrestling matches. Love the wide angle lens! Get's the entire mat easily and lets me sit back and enjoy! Quality is great on 1080p!
- Audio recording quality Internal mic is ok. Nice part is the ability to add external mic.
- Recording capacity 32Gb sd cards all day! Capacity is never a problem.
- Battery life Battery life is excellent for what it is. Need more? Just add the battery backpack or buy an extra battery...
- Durability Waterproof case provides excellent protection!
- Portability Fits easily in my pocket when not in use. Throw a small tripod in my other pocket and it is perfect.
- Ease of use Several times I have found myself missing the mode I want when I am in a rush only to have to loop back through the menu. Would really like a back button. RTFM.
- Design and form factor A better way to navigate the menu would be my only suggestion. Other than that... LOVE IT!
I have been using this camera since Christmas 2011 to record my two sons' wrestling matches. The wide angle lens allows me to set it down on a small tripod at the edge of the mat and sit back and enjoy the match. Before this camera, I was stuck choosing between following the action in my viewfinder or actually watching it live. This caused me to miss many of the best moments in the match on camera because of the adrenaline taking over causing me to pay more attention to the mat than capturing the moment...
