This camera can also take good HD video without any trouble. But there was some noise at the far end of the zoom. The 5 MP (with an enhanced 16 MP output) still camera can also take 3D images. Switch off the 3D and you have a regular digital camera. We use the word regular deliberately as there is nothing special here. This is a 3D camera and that is what this device is good at. So we suggest you stick to the third dimension if you use this one.
