I bought this for my husband as a gift. What a huge joke. He hates it. Me being the women that I am don't pay attention to electronic thingys. I didn't know that it had low resolution. So, with that being said i needed to return it. Well guess what being that I purchased it so early in the year and it is after christmas they won't take it back. I would recommend this for a young child to have as their first camcorder but for a parent that wants to record all aspects of their children's lives for them to view later, it just wasn't what I had expected. Again, this is a fine one for a child first video camcorder. Hope this helps.
