Summary: I can't begin to explain how much I love this camcorder. I got this thing when it was only $300 at Costco, and I couldn't have picked a better deal. Pros: First: The thing has amazing image quality. The colors come out rich and amazing.
Summary: The thing I record the most is the sailing my wife and I do. I mount the camcorder on a horizon leveling camera mount made for boating. In early July I bought the Sony HDR CX160 and used it to record 2 of our sails.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder in Costco and I love it. You can see the clip I took using this camcorder: [...], no video enhancement software used. The resolution I set for Youtube is 720p, but I could make it 1080i, I just did not use it there. The quality of picture is very good in day lighting.
Summary: My background in movie making goes back to when I carried a large VHS camera all over Spain some 20 years ago. Since that time, I have had a long procession of Canon and Sony cams, all of high quality. I have had the VHS, 8mm, super 8mm, mini-disc and finally flash memory.
