Familiarity: I've used it several times

When the camera works it takes very good pictures, videos, and timelapse. The fact that I have to convert every video from MPEG4 to AVI or some other format for easy play back is a huge PAIN that I hate. The Software available from the website is some what clumsy and it doesn't work right and I have not being able to update my devices. The camera freezes all the time, the remote turns on by itself every time I plug it in to get recharged and if the camera is withing range it too will tun on without you knowing it. I had the Memory card format it self out of the blue and lost my pics.The battery life is very bad. The battery bacpac I bought for an additional $50 usd discharges the small battery inside the camera when I plug it in.The remote has a special charging cable and that is the only cable you have to charge it, loose it or break it and you are done. This camera was not ready for release too many bugs. If all you know is point and shoot cameras this camera is not for you I find it to be a lot of work to get it to work right.

The screen gives you a good idea of the pictures and video that you taken. Unless you don't mind guessing what the vidoes and pictures will look like at the end of the day. So far I am not inpressed the first time I put the screen in the camera for some reason the camera did not recognized the SD card it kept reading SD Card not inserted so after powering up and down a few times it finally recognized that the SD card was inserted. And the touch funtion is very clumsy on my camera.I have to touch the screen again and gain until i finally get the camera to do what I wanted it to do.

The audio is pretty good but forget about using the remote control when the camera is in the water housing.Another problem you will run into is the battery life is very bad. The Camera looks great but it can be very difficult to get it to work right. Mine freezes all the time and it becomes unresponsive and I have to disasemble it take out the battery and restart and if it freezes againg you will have to do that again and again. On the up side the remote( when it works) is agreat thing to take shots not doable by hand. By the way my remote turns on by it self every time I put it to charge and if the camera is withing range it too will turn on without you knowing it and kill what ever battery you have left. I hate to say it but the software available from the website to convert from MPEG4 to AVI SUCKS. If you get the Camera towork you will get pretty good video or photos,timelapse but I am struggling with it.
