My First Ever Digicam

After how many years of using a Canon SLR, I've finally decided to try a generic brand before buying something fancy (which what I'm itching for right now >.<)

Anyway, got a really good deal for this video cam since it has 4 freebies and their promo that time was: 1 gig SD card, camera case, tripod and a secret gift! :D (I am such a sucker for freebies). And, and, and you could pay it in 3 installments! *wink wink*

Well, as you can see from the pictures below, the image quality is okay for its price however, the BATTERY LIFE sucks bigtime! The maximum number of minutes I've recorder was just around 10-11 minutes. Take note: minutes. On top of that, the shutter speed is really slow that majority of the initial pictures are blurred despite using the stabilizer function to minimize the blurryness-chuva. It got me thinking that that might be one of the reason why free tripods are included in the package. lol. So, this is therefore NOT recommended for shooting action pictures and I suggest that you switch to video mode and get the pictures from it instead. Believe me, you'll just tire yourself trying and trying and trying AND failing.

I now have 2 tripods: the freebie and the 1 for my SLR. And I almost forgot, the freebie is a mini-tripod. The one that could sit on your desk kind (uber cute!). Just look at that cutie :D If it weren't for this guy, I wouldn't have gotten the cam >.<
