After using this video camera in a few different scenarios, overall it performed very well. As with many consumer grade video cameras, the picture became slightly grainy in low light environments. One test was conducted in a room with only lights from an adjacent room turned on. During this test, the video became slightly grainy. When the light was turned on in the testing room, the picture became clear and sharp.
The setup features were user friendly and setting up the time/date stamp was achieved quickly along with many other settings. With minimal buttons on the viewing screen, a toggle button is used to quickly navigate through the menus which makes for an easy setup and viewing of videos recorded.
This camera is very lightweight and has exceptional zoom capabilities.
