Summary: I've had this for a couple years now and still love it -- great in low light, and takes great photos as well as video. I use it to photograph items for my online shop, as well as taping friends' shows and it's been great.
I love this camera but I am glad i didn't buy it new..way too expensive new
1 February 2013
Summary: It was used but a great used price! Perfect condition and works great!! I researched many cameras and this one had all the features I wanted and for the price (used) it was a great buy. I don't think I could have forked out $800 for a new one. The used one works perfectly. The touch screen does take some getting used to because you do have to apply some pressure to it...
Summary: What really sets this model apart from the newer models is that this has a viewfinder display as well as dual SD card slots. The viewfinder makes shooting in bright daylight considerably nicer and avoids the need for clunky display hoods and other work-arounds to try and see the pull out display when the sun is out.
Summary: How do I love thee! The videos are extremely beautiful and this camera is easy to handle. The menu kick my butt some, but once you figure how things work, its all fun! Other than learning the menu, I think the video camera is perfect. This is my fifth video camera and the best by far. I have never gotten such beautiful night shots or even expected to ever get such beautiful video in low light. I am getting far more than I expected so it is a pure joy for me.
Summary: Bought this video camera for use on an arctic adventure cruise in northern Canada nad Greenland. Worked very well and I was really pleased with the picture quality. I would buy from this supplier again.
Summary: Consumer reports ranks this camera as the seventh best. That is why I bought it. It is not hard to use but a few features could be easier and the battery life could be longer. This is definitely the best camcorder for under a grand.
