Less than ok for beginers; not par to advanced users.

Summary: Bought it for my wife who is trully a complete newbie and I regret the decision. Ok when one learns the basics to shoot film and take pictures. The quality of still pictures is ok when good lighting is present, otherwise, expect grainy images for under less than excellent light. I am not kidding. Indor pics will need a lot of light. I thought that using mini dvds would be a blessing compared to cassete tapes but found out that 20 minutes is awful.
Summary: This is a great inexpensive camcorder. MUCH easier than our VHSc camcorder that has been sitting in its bag for 5 years now and also better than the short videos we can record on our digital camera. After you are done you can just "finalize" the DVD, put in in your DVD player and watch the movie. I blank miniDVD-R are inexpensive (I got 50 for $20) and very easy to store. One minor complaint.
Summary: Great idea! Shoot your memories to mini DVD-R. Right? Well, nice camera, nice idea, records to mini DVD-R, but when you are ready to copy the disks, forget it! You have to BUY expensive software to do this, and any demos I tried don't work. I've now been over three weeks trying to copy my mini DVD-Rs (which record as MPEG4 (.vob)) to full sized DVDs that will play in any player and I still can't do it. Also, the stills suck.
Summary: Antonio,El problema en estos casos es, reietro, que no tenemos toda la informacif3n disponible. Si la tuvie9semos, podredamos ver confirmadas o desmentidas todas nuestras sospechas sobre este asunto.Los silencios y las censuras se dan probablemente porque hay serios intereses envueltos entre los silenciosos, los censurantes y los censurados.
