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.
