Released January, 2010
The Pros:Records brightly colorful video, everything stands out even in dimmer lighting. Image stabilization makes regular quality video very clear and sharp.
The Cons:Battery won't charge when connected to a PC via USB - need an actual USB charger. While advertising says there is support for SDHC cards, there is not - you need SD cards. Video quality drops dramatically when panning the camera.
