Summary: I am not going to talk about all the positives that have been mentioned but what has not been said is vignetting! This camera against certain lights and backgrounds vignettes pretty bad! I wish someone would've mentioned this before I bought this camera!
Summary: It sure looked like a great camera. And initially I was quite impressed. But the second day of use, I shot a few scenes with my granddaughters and turned the camera off. A couple hours later, I turned it back on to shoot some more with them and the lcd screen was black.
Summary: Purchased this camera and bundle thru Sunset Electronics. They had the best price and delivery was on time - if not earlier than expected. Easy to deal with and customer service was very helpful. One of the video camera lights didn't work and they replaced it - no questions asked. REALLY QUICKLY...
Summary: This is a great camera. Being older and somewhat awkward with holding and shooting with the LCD screen, I opted for the version with the eye-level viewfinder.

Pros: Stabilization, Zoom (with 1.7x)
Cons: Limited Wide angle, Battery too small, Read ALL the terms and conditions in the warranty before you buy it.

However I have had nothing but problems getting the Pixela Imagemixer 3 Version 6 to run on my well equiped 4 year old Dell XPS Pentium D,...
Summary: I purchased the Japan version iVIS Vixia which is exactly the same as all the other Vixia versions made in various other countries including the USA. Just different language options and playback formats NTSC or PAL.
