Low-ISO pics ok, video not so good

This camera is okayish but don´t expect that much. IQ at ISO100 and 200 is good, above a bit too strong NR/smearing.

Video quality is so-so, a bit soft and stabilisation distorts the footage. Sound has a bit too much background noise and zooming is audible with strange electronic noises.

High-speed videos aren´t that good, too pixelated and duration limited to 20 seconds - not enough for a lot of scenes.

Build quality is ok, the backside of the camera has a bit too much plastic.

No real battery charger included, only USB with AC adaptor.

Testet if it´s waterproof, it works without problems in water and no water is coming through the seals(make sure the additional locks are pushed).
