Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Vlog Camera I bought this a month ago to start vlogging on YouTube. I didn’t want to spend an arm and a leg to start off with and found this camera and it’s price point were great value for a beginner like myself. The flip up screen and iso are perfect features for what I needed. The battery surprisingly lasts long enough for me to finish filming in one go. The audio from the inbuilt mic is also better than expected. Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect travel companion! I bought this a month ago to take with me on my trip. It’s compact and can do selfie shots as the screen can be flipped! Yes, it can be flipped. Better than using iPhone when taking shots in low light. It has a feature of transferring photos to your phone which I find it cool as I can combine photos in one place. Great value for my money!
