5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Camera

Pros: Wide angle, long recording times (especially if you add a 64gig SD card), easy to use LCD panel, and very good high-definition video.

Cons: Accidentally deleted the promo video off the camera and can't get it back?

Other Thoughts: The projector function is cool but not used too often.
