Summary: Is bad, it doesn't have just a few flaws, is a complete disaster, nothing works, some random day it stopped working, just like that, I did nothing, I got to record only 2 hours, nothing else. the quality is awful, the sound is even worst, the light is terrible, the battery works like s***, it says you need to buy the HD SD to get better quality, not a single slightly tiny change. BAD, DONT BUY THIS!
Summary: There is one reason I'm giving the lowest rate possible: I have had two cameras (same model) and both have stopped charging the battery after a few months. Why bother buying a handheld camera that you have to use with an energy cable attached all the time? Update: I finally got the second camera to charge the battery. I left the camera a whole day connected and the battery didn't charge. Today I tried something different: I reset the camera and it started charging again.
Summary: I had the previous model of this camera and hated it because it performed really poorly in low light, so I gambled on this one and it really paid off. It works great in pretty much any light and seems to be very good quality for the money. It goes out of focus on occasion, but that's probably some setting I have wrong. Would defiantly recommend this camera.
Summary: I purchased this video camera to serve as a secondary video recorder for my daughter's figure skating competitions and shows. It's very easy to use, which allows me to hand it off to other people, leaving me free to use my primary camera (a Canon DSLR) for still shots. After using it for a few events, it's really only good (for me) as a secondary camera.
Summary: This camera is pretty good for the price, but if you're looking for excellent sound to record kids' concerts, as I was, then this is not for you. The sound is just not great. The picture is fine but not nearly as good as an HD camera. After a year i finally went for an HD cam, and glad I did.
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.
Summary: I did a lot of searching for a good camcorder for under $200. After looking at reviews, this one seemed to fit the best. I bought it on another site that had an advertised special for a hundred and seventy five in the red color. I was replacing my JVC GR-D270 MiniDV Camcorder w/25x Optical Zoom because I could hear mechanical noises of the Mini DV tape trying to spool and such while recording. Plus it had a limited capability of 90 minutes on long play.
