I just downloaded the specs on the camera. The website was very
"frugal" about giving out information about this and the other cameras
they have for sale. http://www.svp-tech.com

For outdoor shooting and really good lighting inside this camera
should be fine.

Frank gave a great answer but I wanted to pipe in just a little bit.
If I could have advised you before you bought it I would have said
pass it by - it is (and has become) a hassle to find video editing
programs to support it.

I have a flash camcorder DXG Model 202V but it renders in .avi format. 
I have tested Ulead and I am about 93% happy with it. I do my
production work in it, then export a high rez .avi copy. 

I then import into Windows Movie Maker 2 or QuickTime for the final
copy to post on the site. When I buy the full version I'll have access
to the manual so I won't have to take the extra steps but I like the
quality of what I get.

And that is the main point of my ramble. If the hardware and software
gets you a good quality video that is the name of the game.

Vlog On!
