Summary: I love this camera! I had one before but, unfortunately, it was stolen. I was glad to be able to find one on eBay. It is a great camcorder and easy to use. I use this a lot with my granddaughter. She is 2 and often tells me to "stop ". So I am able to use it at a distance while using the close-up feature without annoying her and able to record her in a natural setting. It charges quickly and holds a charge for at least several hours.
