This camera is packed so thoughtfully, you think you are getting something terribly expensive!- the box is so gorgeous! And your anticipation is hard to control!!!

But -- when you start trying it out, your anticipation wanes to disappointment...

You must get an expansion memory card. You only get like 30sec on the internal memory...

The Start/Stop button is hard to push, making it difficult AND - doesn't protrude out enough for you to have a good 'feel'... Why it has to be so BIG compared to the OTHER buttons is a mystery...

The Zoom button is either full zoom or nothing. There is no such thing as 'slow' zoom.

You can't put a bigger battery into the camera - and it is a mongrel non-standard... It's available on eBay for a shocking $19.99 ! What a rip!

The recorded sound level is WAY too low!!!

The icons in the menus aren't big enough. Plan on using a stylus - if you can FIND one! (I hope you have tiny fingertips...)

Ditto when recording. You have to squint to see the icon on the screen if you are recording or not...

You can't attach a lens hood, so make sure the sun is BEHIND you - not on the side of you!

The supplied Toshiba camera bag is too small, and just too tight for the camera, and you can't carry anything else, like the charger...

The Walmart bonus bag is roomy enough for the camera, but the side pockets are too small for the charger...

If you want to plug in an ext mic, you have to open the LCD, which turns on the camera. The ext mic does not help the audio problem!!!

The video output connector doesn't make a good connection!

I went thro TWO of these. I returned the 1st one because of low audio, and the 2nd one because of low audio AND NO HI DEF PICTURE!!!!

Will I buy a 3rd?


Don't forget - You only get 15days to return it to Walmart if you don't like it!!!

I'm really glad I bought it from Walmart instead of eBay! I'd be stuck with it if I bought it on eBay...
