I wanted an inexpensive camera to try since I'm not very tech savvy. It works great, in fact I've had to review video a couple times for wildlife I saw on my drives to work and home and have edited frame shots and shared short videos with my kids. The downside is the lack of written instructions for settings. The camera has a menu, but I don't know how to get to it and I don't know what it does. The instructions only tell what the various buttons are for. i haven't been able to figure out how to set date and time to be current. All the videos are dated same date when I review on my laptop.
