Not as good as claimed (Mark VanRiper — 12/27/2009)

I have tried to like this camera and have read the manual several times thinking it was me that couldn't the settings right. The picture is viewable but not as good as claimed. The sharpness just isn't there and lighting is a major player with this unit. Night videos inside your house are substandard and require perfect lighting arrangements to record. I would send it back if it were with in 30 days of purchase myself. I'm stuck with it I know and I would welcome any input from any other owners that have figured out settings or any little tricks I may have over looked.
