Great camera for the price! User needs to learn the system carefully.

Summary: I bought the camera because I'm a pastor in process and I needed to submit a / some video of my worship services and sermons to the "higher-ups". I bought this particular camera because I like the data storage format - in times previous, it was difficult to match up the video medium between what I had to record with and what the powers that be had with which to view the video.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder to make videos with my grandkids. We take old songs and make mini movies out of them. (They really liked the Marty Robbins song "El Paso" because we did a western). I already owned a Canon FS200. The only difference between the two camcorders is that the FS200 has an external mike jack, and I use a shotgun mike to get better sound quality. I think that the Canon FS series camcorders are some of the best for the money out there.
