Video

Video:
"Worst of all, the videos taken are in some primitive format that I've no idea how to work with - what on earth was wrong with AVI?"
_
"Video quality is okay, not spectacular; the lack of image stabilization and live video zoom on this model makes it more of an afterthought than a useful feature, though it should work fine on a tripod."
_
"The zoom lense is noisy so I think that might pick up with the sound quality but considering I had good luck with still photos on low lights, I don't think the video will be a problem as long as the camera isn't jostled too much."
_
"We have bought several due to the ease of use and the versitility between photo and video."
_
"The movies turn out well too."
_
"Taking videos is a snap and it has some good refining settings that are helpful."
_
"I would spend the extra money and get a camera that is capable of recording 1080p video as well, and that isn't made entirely of plastic."
_
"The video feature works surprisingly well... overall very user friendly even for someone who has never owned a digital camera."
