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: 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.
Summary: This camera is a good buy for soneone who wants great video and sound. I used it for the holiday celebrations and can't believe the HD video and audio. Still learning how to use it but am looking forward to that.
Summary: This is a great camcorder, the quality is excelent, the sound is great, this is a true HD camera. If you are like me that record a lot, you should buy an extra battery, but for the rest the camcorder is great!
Summary: Bought this right before the holidays to replace an old mini-tape recorder. I did not have time to read the user guide, and was able to easily figure out how to take movies. Sounds and picture quality was very good. Love the small size. Note that this does not come with a battery charger -- the battery needs to be attached to the camera and the entire unit plugged into an A/C adapter in order to charge.
Summary: Product worked great on test, can't wait to test it out in the field for videoing hunts! Focus seems to adjust quickly, haven't had the chance to test out in low light but from other rating the low light is superb. Ease of use is great, bought and extra battery so I could have more time filming in the field. Overall a well rounded camera.
