Summary: First off, let's be clear, this is a standard definition camera. Even thought Cannon's high-definition camcorders (HF) series are within about $100 of the price of this camera, I decided to stay with standard definition (for now) for the following reasons: 1.
Summary: I got this camera in an emergency for my disney family vacation. Not sure until i recieved this puppy. Once I saw it out of the box. I was impressed with size and ease of use. video quality is good. but photo quality is not that great unless u have a very good light. all in acceptable.
Summary: So far there seems to be little that I did not expect from this camera. I did not want HD as I do not see the need for it as the TV I have gives me a brilliant picture. (Phillips Pixel Plus with a CRT!!!!). I bought the standard version as editing is easier and the wide screen format suits my needs.
