Summary: I bought this camcorder from Amazon. It was advertised as new. Upon opening the box it appeared that it had been returned to Amazon by someone. It appeared to be in excellent condition, so I decided to keep it (It is a discontinued model and not readily available as new).
Summary: Downloading videos is awkward as the USB cable is only 18" long so I had to buy an extension cable to avoid holding the camera from in back of my computer while downloading. The cable that came with my Canon HV20 was twice as long.
