    Has anyone used one of these and edited the footage in FCE?

    I'm looking at getting one to have as I enjoy watersports and skateboarding and have cool ideas about making some neat shots with this.
    My sister is also going to the Galapagos islands this month and she'd be able to bring it with her for underwater video shots.

    I know it isnt HD but from what i've seen it looks pretty nice. I like the small form factor and the ability to attach it to basically anything.

    Any input is appreciated.

    OK, so. After reading the specs, your camera records in VGA which is analog component video. It can be connected to a PC with USB or to a TV with RCA cables. So when you connect to import it in FCE you should have the following setting in Easy Setup:
    Format: NTSC
    Frame Rate: 29.97
    Use: Uncompressed 8 bit NTSC 48 kHz

    The 48 kHz doesn't mean anything in the video, it's for when you are working with audio recorded in 48 kHz. Do you know any link where I can download a sample of the video?
