    Gonna start doing a video blog of photoshoots and what not, should bring alot of traffic to my site, as well as show potential clients how i work.

    bought it off some guy on Fred Miranda with a Lowepro Nova 3 AW, for 95 shipped and pp. 2gb (60min) version.

    I think i got a steal of a deal. teh Bag alone is 45 new. and the cam is 149.

    wasnt even worth the review. tried both in the kind of low light i would use it in, and the 1.8 wouldnt even focus, it just hunted and hunted. it was sold immediately after.

    to me IQ means nothing if it wont focus when i need it to

    They're great cameras. I've used the newer Flip Mino HD and love it. Low light, IQ and ease of use makes those things :bowdown: Even the editing software that thy include is pretty damn good.

    I've debated one of them for a while, but the video on my G10 is good enough that I can't justify that.

    werd I really want one. I like to cut together little shorts of driving like in bad weather or other mini adventures, but I hate having to carry a bulky ass camera for 720p video.
