Great HD video camera, great value

M. Massey, Amazon
17 June 2010
  • Summary: I researched like crazy and settled on this camcorder, bought it in early Mach, 2010 from Amazon. I wanted a good HD camcorder to video my son in his last season of high school baseball. The HD quality is superb when camcorder is connected to my Samsung HD TV.

Very nice camera.

Liubov M., Newegg
8 January 2010
  • Summary: Overall, the camera is very nice. One of the best on the market. If you are not sure which model to get, the S11 or S10, I would suggest to get this one, the only difference is the memory size and price.
  • Pros: A lot of usefull features. The 3 second pre-recording is a cool feature. If you're waiting to capture a moment, you don't have to waste memory. Very clear pictures, 24p movie mode is very nice. Compact design, comfortable to hold. Digital zoom from x12-40 is very clear, cannot tell the difference...
  • Cons: Sometimes the focus takes some time to adjust when you use the zoom, and the picture is blurry for a second or 2. Also I noticed when you zoom in to x40 indoors the picture loses focus for couple of seconds once in a while. But x40 indoors is rarely used so its a minor fault. Relatively short bat...

small wonder

Mario M., Newegg
8 December 2009
  • Summary: I used Pinnacle Studio 14 in Windows 7 and the software sees the camcorder right away and allowed me to import the .MTS video to my PC. I was able to play the .MTS video with Media Player.
  • Pros: Excellent HD video quality. I shot some scenes 1920x1080 @ 24 Mbps with relatively good day time indoor lights and the video was stunning! And the still pictures look almost better then those from my Canon Powershot G1. But not as nice as from my Nikon D40, but close. This is what I've been wanti...
  • Cons: I wish they include the view finder, 95% of the time I'd be using the lcd, but there are those times when you need to use the viewfinder. The camera has this annoying clicking when you move it around, but only when powered off. It's not coming from the lens cover like some "pro" reviewers suggest...

Suprised

Jacob W., Newegg
22 October 2009
  • Summary: I have used many camera's and camcorders even high end 3ccd pro versions. If you can get steady hands or can use a tripod with this camera while shooting (tripod adds weight/balance for steady motion shots) it would be great for short films.
  • Pros: Incredible. I did not buy this for still photo's but just after taking one photo it convinced me its very capable. I use a nikon D60 for stills but after using this I am considering just selling the slr because the canon is of a similar quality. For a normal user this beats the typical consumer p...
  • Cons: It rattles when turned off but I am not so sure its the lense cover as everyone says. This is ok I would think its more of a loose lense that re-aligns when powered on. It sounds more like a spring in a small bottle. This camcorder will make you buy a expensive case to protect it because its just...

Amateur Camera with Professional Quality

Zurab K., Newegg
1 August 2009
  • Summary: Small camcorder with excellent video quality. I shot video of NYC Autoshow this year and I didn't expect quality to be so good. I cannot imagine the better quality. Low light performance is also enough good. I don't see any significant noise which can make the video uncomfortable for your eyes.
  • Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls, Versatile
  • Cons: Poor Battery Life (common for every camcorder)

Excellent Camcorder

Anonymous, Newegg
31 July 2009
  • Summary: I haven't used the software much yet, just to transfer some movies to my computer. Doesn't look all that spectacular. Also, I knew my computer was too small going in to this purchase, but make sure your computer will handle HD video. The playback on an insufficient system leaves much to be desired.
  • Pros: The main purpose of this purchase was for family video's. Since we keep our equipment in excellent condition, spending the bucks on this was a no brainer. This is a very easy to use/easy to navigate camcorder. When it arrived, 5 minutes later my wife was filming with it. Plan on creating our own ...
  • Cons: With the capabilities of this camcorder...and the price, I would think a HDMI cable would be included. Not going to knock it down an egg for this, but I would highly recommend getting the HDMI cable. If you're paying for HD video, I want to be able to transfer that HD to my TV. The included compo...

Still the best value in HD camcorders

Omer, Amazon
4 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camcorder more than two years ago and I was never disappointed in the quality of HD video and still photos this small camcorder delivers. It is very easy to transfer videos and photos to your PC for further editing by simply connecting the camera to your PC with the provided USB cable.
