Summary: Order the NTSC MinDV Camcorder as I have own MinDV tapes that need to be converted to iMovie. I was very surprised that the box came complete with all the accessories. The battery was still working as it was such an old bottle. I will recommend both the seller and the product. Condition Excellent.
Summary: I'm not a professional videographer. Still I might well be the pickiest man in the world when it comes to video quality. I'm the one who keeps noticing MPEG artifacts in TV transmissions all the time, because I've been doing my own DVDs for 5 years.
Summary: I will not repeat all positive other reviewer have said about the camera's video quality. It is noticably better than 1/6" cameras I compared this camera with (JVC, Panasonic) in both dark an lighted conditions.
There is very little not to like about this videocamera...

Summary: This camera produces excellent image quality for the price, it's very compact, and ergonomic. It's packed with features. If you are a mainstream user, it is more than adequate. There are those who will compare it to $1000-$2000 videocams and it will naturally fall short.
Summary: I purchased this through an online wholesale membership site for $399.99 plus tax and shipping (total $459.00) and couldn't be any happier. As soon as I had the battery charged up I started shooting in and out of the house.
Summary: I don't usually purchase things sight unseen, but this camera was an exception. I had only my past experiences with Canon to go by, which I had been satisfied with. I wanted something compact, so the size is perfect for me. I like the widescreen mode.
