It's a great toy, but that's it

Considering the size of the tiny lens on this thing it's not good for anything beyond making 'fun' videos. I guess that's why they call it a PlaySport. The sound quality is terrible, with a horrible whining noise marring everything. You'll have to dub your own sounds over it or just mute the clips. It shoots in 1080p but the resolution, while not bad, will not look good on a screen larger than an ordinary laptop. If you're going on holiday and want to shoot stuff around the swimming pool or beach then go for it. Though I must warn you that the flaps on the side which contain the memory card are very flimsy, and might pop open underwater (and ruin the camera) if you are not careful. Lots of light is needed to make the image quality acceptable, so sunny holidays are definitely the time and place for this device.
