Honestly, for something under $200, this sucker is fun. I highly recommend it as a gift for someone, especially new parents who don't want to lug out the videocam everytime the Baby does something cute. Or insurance appraisers looking at a damaged vehicle and needing to document it. Or if you have someone you know serving overseas, walk around your town and when you see someone you know, ask them to say "Hey," and then upload it on YouTube so that serviceman or service woman can show their comrades in Iraq - or send one to someone in Iraq, so they can make videologs for their loved ones. I keep mine in my purse because you never know what you might see along the side of the road . . .
