I see it shoots 1280x720 MP4 as the "Highest Quality" for $233.00 it's a lot cheaper than a GoPro but then again it does have a 16X zoom ...You get what you pay for here ..It might be just fine to shoot the kids in the pool??? I wouldn't get too excited.

These cameras probably put out a decent image in sunlight, but perform horribly in low light. It probably has noisy picture overall too.

I doubt it even has a real bayonet type mount- my guess is that the lenses you attach are nothing more than screw on "lenses:......but to be honest- don't bet against the Chinese- there will be knockoff cameras coming soon- and eventually they will get better and imitate the interchangeable lens cameras with real bayonet mounts..... almost certainly.
