Summary: I bought this camcorder after reading a lot of review. I was a Sony buyer up until now. I must say the picture quality is fantastic. But the software that comes with it, is totally inadequate. It does not even convert the .MTS files and create pure HD effect.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder by accident. I wanted the model HF S20 instead, but this camcorder is super small. It has an internal memory, or you can use flash cards. It is a bit annoying switching between the two because you have to manually setup the camera to do that.

Summary: The camera itself seems to work just fine. I wouldn't know. I have been unable to upload video onto my PC. What I didn't know going into my purchase was that the HD video gets rendered in a format that requires specific software to upload it, view it and edit it on a regular pc.
