Returned camcorder for two reasons. Most imp. Was the colors even in bright light were muted. Deep red looked light red and sometimes pink. Yellows were dull. Tried vivid setting with no sig. improvement. The still photos were taken but not stored. Could not retrieve them. The pdf manual was poorly written. I compared color to video on my Canon 7D SLR , my Galaxy 7 phone, my Sony handycam and my Canon Elph. Maybe I got a lemon. Cannot recommend this camcorder.

Very easy to use out of the box. Worth the extra $50 to get all of the features. You can record automatically in MP4 and full HD at the same time. This way you can upload to Internet quickly for sharing and still have great HD for yourself. I got an extra battery, but not necessary. It lasts quite a while on one charge. It goes to sleep on its own right away to save battery life once screen is closed. I left it this way for a week and it made no difference from being shutdown. Seriously deep zoom! I bought a UV lens filter and cap to keep original glass clean even though it has a shutter that covers it. Since it sets down inside the barrel, it would be tedious to clean, so I thought this was a good idea. You can't go wrong. Truly worth the extra $50 for this model. Packed full of features that you don't even realize will come in handy. You'll love this pick!
Pros: Dual recording formats. Wifi, great battery life, super deep zoom, lightweight and 32gb built in memory!
Cons: Stays in sleep mode if you forget to power down
