    Includes bag, hdmi cable, remote, usb c - usb-a cable, battery, lens cover, manual - what it does NOT include is a SD memory (max 256gb) and SD-to-Micro-SD adapter, picture looks good to me recorded at the 1080/30 setting. The touch screen works with a fingernail.

    I just recently purchased a samsung 75” Q800c for my living room and needed some content to test out 8k on the tv. Theres alot of listings for these cheaper “8k” cameras all over Amazon, target etc. BBY was selling this camera for really cheap so i said i might as well give it a try. When recording i was excited to see 8k even thought 15fps is understandable knowing how high the resolution is for such a small camera. When playing the content on my 4k samsung q90 the image quality was the worst ive ever seen on a camera. Didnt even come close to good quality both in light and dark setting. Now the quality itself on the camera screen itself looks great when doing any form of playback every part of what you recorded is completely degraded. Blurry images is all you see and it looks atrocious. Now i said to myself maybe its best if i play it on a laptop with micro sd removed and connecting the card to a memory card readeron my 4k oled gaming laptop cause maybe the camera itself was the problem. Even on the laptop it looked just as bad as tv playback. Will be returning within next day unfortunately. Really wanted camera to work but i guess 8k cameras at a low price wont be here for a long time.

    NO WIFI connection, the App doesnt connect, the touch display seems to be either delayed or just CHEAP, it takes a few tries to "touch" to the next step, HOWEVER the choice off up to 8K is good. For the price i guess you cant beat it. Good back up camera.

    Actually really good quality and easy to work with. All cords are included, you will need an SD card. The volume could be better quality on recording but a mic attachment would increase the quality or the recordings. The picture seems average on the actual camera but looks incredible once uploaded.

    Poor quality, i was surprised to see best buy carrying such a poor quality video camera. Unfortunately it was the only one in the store so i bought it. I returned it very soon after.
