APART FROM ZOOM DEFECT, A GREAT CAMERA
on 13 September 2014
Everything seemed perfect with this camera, until I made a test video; on using the zoom function, from approximately 8x to 10x focal length, the camera was recording a warping, shimmering like disturbance, which rendered the recordings unuseable.
It was most likely a fault with the lens mechanism, although Amazon were unable to provide a replacement. I was advised to return the camera for a refund, which I did.
What a shame, as on full wide-angle setting the camera takes great pictures and superb video - it's also incredibly small and would easily fit into a shirt pocket.
If you're someone who likes to "zoom-in close" on your subject, then perhaps look for another camera - or, as I mentioned above, the refurbished camera I purchased was more likely to have a defect.
