But the quality of video and sound leaves much to be desired.

The camera is quite durable, it fell many times, but it withstood everything, only the lid covering the charging connector cracked. You can display the picture from the LCD screen on the TV via an AV cable. It is possible to turn off the sounds and the screen and shoot unnoticed. There is a threaded mount for the tripod.

Of the minuses: its own format of batteries and not the most common type of memory card.
