Photos I have not yet tested.
Images run very smoothly and are pleasing to the eye
Very good, that the video is saved in the appropriate format and additionally in .mp4
In the dark: light image noise (stands out easily with the dark function)
Zoom: With the zoom you can for example filming the Moon in full greater focus and recognize the crater very good. Say the zoom is perfect. Digital zoom you realize logically quality losses.
Image Stabilizer: The stabilizer is very good. Assuming, however, in the digital zoom on it brings hardly anything. (Very good)
Streaming: Also I have tested it on UStream to stream and am quite excited as I can be liquid stream with a 0.6 Mbit / s upload line. Whether this is useful for private use, I doubt it.
Software: The software I can manage very well.
Control: The record button and all other controls are very comfortable to use and reach.
A bit annoying is that you have to open the lens aperture manually is.
The battery is sufficient for occasional films. If you want to film for example, animals in the zoo, I recommend the original battery to buy again.
I absolutely recommend to buy a camera bag and at least an 8GB SD card. I have nevertheless taken 32GB and so you can record with high quality 2 hours.
