The Pros:Easy to use, simple and intuitive without too many buttons to figure out. Battery lasts at least 2 hours. Video in good light is sharp and clear with great color.
The Cons:Low light video gets grainy and blurry, hard to see anything. Battery life severely reduced if you review video at all, need to keep some spares on hand.
