The camcorder comes well packaged along with a carry bag, an audio cable, a USB cord, a battery and an instructions manual.
Before use, I installed the battery and SD card before charging it for a couple of hours. You then need to choose your mode , photo or video mode depending on what you want to do. You can adjust the setting for each of the modes. You can also use the zoom feature to take pictures or videos of objects which are further away.
I have taken pictures and videos with this camcorder and I am happy with both results. To retrieve my picture and video, I remove my SD card from the camcorder and plug it directly into my computer since it has an SD card reader. If your computer does not have an SD reader, you can connect it to the computer using the USB cord.
ProsI like the fact that this camcorder is small and portable, you can easily carry it around with you I also like the fact that you can use this as both a camera and camcorder, avoiding the need to buy a camera if you do not have one since this can do both.
ConsI was a bit disappointed with the quality of the photos and videos which were not that great
