I wonder how the light sensitivity is? I’ve bought a couple video/still cameras in this small a form factor and they work just fine (albeit without stabilization)but in low light – even what you might not consider low light – they were awful.

If anyone tries this out and can report on low light shooting I’d be interested.

Rob, in low lighting it takes horrible pictures, and the flash just makes it worse.
The stabilization is also only for the video, so if you have shaky hands, it’s hard to take a decent picture.

Don’t do it! Mine came with software which installed trojan downloaders on my laptop. I wouldn’t have noticed it had I not just performed a clean install.
