As a go-anywhere / vacation pocket camcorder, the Zx3 excels for casual 720p/30fps shooting (I tried 1080p and it's not great) -- at the beach, by the pool, and anywhere that water/dust/sand might be a concern. The main caveat is that the tiny mic aperture can be obstructed by water after a dip, which muffles recorded sound greatly and introduces unwanted variability in audio quality that is difficult if not impossible to fix in post. If you don't care much about the recorded sound, it's no biggie, but if you plan to use the audio as-is instead of layering music/foley/voiceover on top, be warned: you'll be disappointed. Walt Disney once observed that least 50% of the emotional content in a scene comes from the audio. As other reviewers have also noted, battery life isn't great, so be prepared to pack a spare battery or two if you plan to do any extended shooting with a high-capacity (>4GB) SD card.

As mentioned in numerous locations online, this is a great portable camera, but it does have poewr on issues when the battery gets low. Also, once the battery gets so low that the camera won't turn on, there is now no way to charge the battery. Advice for everyone... always have a spare, charged battery!

Ours broke about six months in. Would consistently shut down even though the battery was full. Got rid of it shortly after. The image quality was good though
