Summary: We purchased this camera for our little nonprofit public access TV station, for use in the field by high school students and other volunteers. The camera we bought was lightly used but in excellent condition. The seller's description was accurate and the price just right for our limited budget. The students are making some wonderful shows for our station to air and we are thrilled with the camera.
Summary: I love the camera, it is a great value for the money, I wish I could have paid full price for a new one, but this one is still up to date and awesome! as a bonus I got a spare battery, battery charger,telephoto lens, a wide angle lens and a boom microphone which more than doubled the value! I am happy!
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. It will show up as an USB drive and then you can basically drag and drop the files to your hadr disk.
Large lens, great low light, manual focus ring/dial. 5 stars

Summary: before this camera I used 3CCD Panasonic PV-GS300 cameras. This camera is much better. The lens is huge by comparison and the picture is in HD. The low light level is much better too. There may be some issues with this camera, but I haven't found them yet. Well, except for the microphones on the camera. They could be better; this doesnt matter much to me though because I am using the external output into a condenser mic of my own.
Summary: The picture quality from this camcorder is crisp and vivid, and the controls are pretty intuitive as well. I also like the fact that it has a microphone jack for an external microphone so that the sound quality can match the excellent picture quality (many of the camcorders I looked at before buying this one didn't have that facility). The only small complaint I have is that it doesn't have a manual focus ring, which makes manual focusing a little clumsy.
