Summary: I bought this camcorder in December 2005. I asked the salesperson at PC Richards for the best camcorder and this is what he gave me. It's like a small malfunctioning computer. I sent it back to the factory to be fixed and they sent it back to me with only half the functions working. I overpaid for it $629 and now can't get rid of it for 1/2 the price. Although the picture quality is good, it is a pain to operate.
Lost footage..worst technical equipment I've ever owned

Summary: My title says it all. I've lost footage several times, corrupt discs all the time. The worst part is, it makes you think you're recording, and then you go to play it back, and it's not there. This is a certified piece of junk. Mine may just be a lemon based on other reviewers, but why take the risk when it comes to recording fun memories?
