I haven't used all the settings on this camera yet so can only tell you what I have used so far. I will be as imformative as possible about the one's I haven't used yet though!
I bought this for £99 on the CEX website. You can purchase this from a number of electronic stores for prices between £99 and £150. Obviously it is good to shop around first to get the best price!
The camera comes in a box (obviously!) and in the box you get the camera, the manual, a cd set up for your computer and the USB cable which is also the wall plugin charging cable. The camera is very well packaged inside the box. My advice is to keep all the original packaging because if you ever want to sell it you can state that it still has it's original packaging which increases it's value slightly!
It has a fold out LCD screen which twists 285 degrees which allows you to turn the camera around to film or take a picture of yourself. It has a built in speaker at the side of the camera to allow playback audio to be clear. It also has a flash underneath the lens. It is slim and stylish perfect for those that base their cameras on looks quite a lot!
It is well built i haven't dropped it yet so I don't know if it will hold up! It has a lens cap which protects the lens when you aren't using it. It also has a hand strap that comes with it too.
Now onto the more technical stuff! I am going to be honest - I got all these specifications out of the manual as a lot of it doesn't make much sense to me but may make sense to you so here is all the specs you will need to know!
1/2.33" MOS Sensor
VIDEO IMAGE PIXELS : 11.9mp [16:9] and 14.3mp [4:3]
STILL IMAGE PIXELS : as above
Focal Length : 6.8mm - 34.0mm
This has a 5x Optical zoom and a 60x Digital zoom in video settings and a 50x Digital zoom in Image settings.
recording format - MPEG - 4 AVC/H.264
microphone - 2ch stereo
speaker - Dynamic
av - output
HDMI - yes (mini)
USB - 2.0 hi speed
It takes an SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards
Overall this is brilliant for people that want a good quality and affordable camera. This is perfect for Youtubers as it films in HD and the audio is perfect. The battery life lasts around 6 hours however if you use it on and off every now and then it will obviously last a lot longer!
Sorry for the random specs, I wanted to include as many as possible. I am being honest in saying I have no idea what half of them mean but they may be of use to you!
I hope this gives you a little more information on the camera. I personally think it is one of the best out there!
