YEEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOW tell us how you really feel MCRethinking this idea. Whats the point in paying $50 for a battery and charger? The charging is no different than if you were to plug in your computer. Its actually a complete waste unless you want it on for over 7.5 hours. That would take almost 66gigs on 1080p. Allow me to explain. 1 battery - 2.5 hours. Start off with two batteries and the charger. Use 1 battery up (2.5hours, 22.14gigs), use the 2nd battery while first is charging (5hours, 44.28 gigs), use the recharged battery (7.5 hours, 66.42gigs). Why not just spend $20 and get another battery?
Total set up:
$350 for the camera (shipped and taxed)
$65 for battery back (shipped and taxed)
$117 for LCD screen (shipped and taxed)
$140 for 64g Class 4 SD card (shipped and taxed) http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Secure.../dp/B003FVG3PC
$670 total for a freakin camera. Sorry to say this, though the camera takes good video....... the company is a complete rip off. I would advise ANYONE and EVERYONE to stay away from this brand. For Christ sake, they charge you for fog inserts because you couldn't use the camera for more than 10 minutes without the thing clouding up. They make you buy every little thing seperatley. Dollar for dollar, I'd say this is the worste valued camera on the market. And despite all this crap, I have to hand over another $20 so my $625 camera can operate without fogging up. Proof.
