Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Camera Suprising features in such a small package and at a very reasonable price. I do think that the optional light for night time filming is way over priced so I won't be getting one anytime soon. Also, extra batteries seem a bit more expensive. I may look elsewhere to find one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from The battewry can not be purchased from other vendors and from Panasonic they cost almost as much as the entire camera. Why did they not use existing batteries so they would be readily available?
