Bought this camcorder and have not yet been able to use it. There is no way to charge the battery, you have to buy an extra cord to charge and the Walmart where we purchased the camcorder does not carry the cord. It didn't come with a memory card, but we were able to purchase one and also got a charger that an employee told us would work and it does not. So it might seem like a decent camcorder but be prepared to purchase a memory card and an cord to charge it otherwise it is useless...
I just got my camera today and I love it. It does in fact have the automatic still photo when smiles are detected while recording video, which you can also adjust the sensitivity of smile detection! the projector works great, you can focus it which is a great feature. works best in at least a shade drawn room. 110% love this camera would recommend to anyone!
I returned this because it would not record in any format other than AVCHD. no mpeg, Mov, or mp4 formats. Took it back and got a refurbisned Canon. I also did not like the fact that it did not have an automatic lens cover.
This camera quality is great for those that are getting into video production. I will highly recommend it to those that want a good camera at a good affordable price. Great at taking videos in day time and and at the lighting is not that bad although you will see a lot of pixelation but that's to be expected.
Bought for the night vision to use with Paranormal
Bought for the night vision to use with Paranormal team, the auto focus is great, the touch screen could be up dated a little but the full hd is awesome I played the videos I took on my 52\"tv and they where all HD and clear awesome cam

I'm trying another brand
Video and sound were very good but camera was adjusted so you'd have to hold your head full to the left to make the picture level. Getting signal to computer screen was only possible one time and then it refused to connect. Tech support was available only through email and the advice was to continue to try to get it to connect because sometimes they were slow. I emailed back that I had tried many times even after shutting computer down and restarting but still no signal. Received no resposne so returned camera to Walmart who gave a refund. Problem is in the camera and tech support. No fault of Walmart.
I love this camcorder to good product but on the other hand I do not recommend the Walmart website because it has a computer glitch and order my product twice also charged my husband's credit card twice and they would not refund the money they left it up to the bank to refund the money this whole situation was very upsetting for the both of us but funny it took my husbands bank to resolve all this situation
Single button record that's easy and ready for action

Surprisingly good video, cheap mounts.
I was surprised at the quality of the video taken by this camera. The good news is: it's worth the money.\nThe bad news is the cheap plastic mounts for the camera. The clip that holds the camera to it's various mounting brackets broke within a week. Worse yet, I can't find replacement clips on the Walmart web site. Polaroid doesn't even acknowledge the camera's existence on their web site.\nIf not for the mounting clip, I would have given the camera 5 stars.\nStill, I took the camera for several rides on my bicycle along Lake Michigan at Petosky. It was mounted on my helmet. I also filmed my trek across the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes in northern Michigan. The video was excellent and I'm happy about the purchase. I'll rig a mounting of my own unless Walmart, Polaroid, or somebody comes up with replacement clips I can buy.\nConsider this camera a good alternative to a GoPro. The price difference between the two speaks for itself.
