I actually bought this camera and I regret it. I've been using this camera for about 6 months now and I also agree it is a poor quality camera. The only good thing about this camera is it takes somewhat nice closeup photos of objects. Things like flowers, kitchen taps, feathers, containers, etc. But smaller objects like tiny Allysum flowers, ants, small native bees, etc the camera refuses to focus on these tiny objects. The camera hates taking photos or videos when it's overcast, raining, or of anything up in a tree. It refuses to focus on water droplets that are not taken from above. If you have to point this camera upward to take a photo of something, forget it. I would not recommend this camera if you want to take bird photographs, as I do.
However, there is one advantage to this camera's video mode, and is what I mostly use my camera for. The audio sounds it picks up, say of a Superb Fairy Wren, is recorded exactly as you hear it - that is if a bird is calling out in a high pitch and is within about 400 metres from the camera. Beyond that distance sounds recorded sound extremely distant when a video is played back in the camera itself. The video mode will not pick up any sounds that are close to and more than 1 kilometre away. Nor will it record low pitch sounds like those made by some Herons, Ibises and Owls unless you get within feet of the source of the sound.
When using the "scene mode", for example, sunset photos that you take are not true to life coloured images. The images you take display too much yellow coloured light instead of orange or pink in sunsets. The other scene modes come out poorly using those modes.
