This camera shoots very good quality video. For my uses, I decided that I needed a camera that also shoots still images so that I do not have to always carry 2 cameras. I was able to capture still images from the video I took that were good enough for screen or web display, but this was a hassle. I also found the record slider to be a little cumbersome and I would get a lot of camera movement while turning on and off. I also had trouble working the slider with gloves on.
This camera is for you if you want a simple, light weight camera.
This camera is not for you if you want to be able to capture still images and video from the same device.
