The quality I'm seeing doesn't make sense. I know you will loose some quality by uploading to youtube, but this looks very bad indeed. In fact, I am hesitant to blame the camera until I've seen an original un-modified video clip direct from the camera. In the case of your youtube video it appears to me one of two problems:

1) the video resolution on the camera was set very low

2) the file was highly compressed before uploading to youtube.

If this is how the video looks straight from the camera, and the camera is in high-resolution mode, then I have a $19.99 camera that takes better videos than this.. which I doubt is true.

You're 100 percent right... the uploaded (unedited)videos on the computer look a Little better but just a little better nothing super high quality though!

i've seen much better!

Do not get this camera, it's going back to the store for a Refund.

I watched this at 4 am ish in the mourning

Youtube is not the place to display video for a camera review. more places have a much higher flash program. vimeo just went Hi def ....

I am happy you placed a buyers beware and in this case it did the job, but lack the quality.

I did see some Pixalation, was this a taped unit or sd unit

Sd cards will crash if too much shock how much a lot.
