Summary: Now that a dedicated camcorder is no longer a top priority (with DSLR offering HD video and I often travel with a Sony "GoPro") makes this perfect for travel. Even with the Canon wide lens attached it is still very small. Picture quality is good as expected.
Summary: I read up on camcorders before buying this one. I waited and waited until the price was right, and then I pounced. I put about $200.00 into camcorder accessories including a directional microphone, zoom lens,additional batteries, etc.
Summary: The Bad: When I first picked up the camera, I was disappointed at the weight and feel. I'm sorry to say this camera does feel a little cheap. I like that it is light, but it kind of resembles the feel of a toy. I'm also no used to a LCD door that doesn't lock into place.
Summary: I bought this based on the reviewsi read on Amazon. I was NOT disappointed! Love the quality of the video recordings. The size is so very compact that it can fit easily in my purse. I recommend this camcorder.
Summary: I love this camera. I gave 4 instead of 5 stars because I need to use a pen to do the touch screen and the battery life is only two hours. I had to spent another $100 to buy the 3-hour spare battery. The camcorder records great quality movies under low light. The zoom 10x is sufficient for me.
Summary: Excellent image quality Easy operation I have not used it much, but so for it seems like a good camera. The only issue is the external microphone is subject to electrical interference. First noticed it when I plugged it into my TV. Had to use a different HDMI port to eliminate the feedback.
Summary: Using for school events. Pretty good for the price. We'll keep it, I think. Picture is good although not great in low-light. Sound is surprisingly good (perhaps the flash memory helps due to no moving parts). No viewfinder, but who relies on that anyway?
Summary: I was looking for an HD camcorder that was less than $1000 and good in low light. This camcorder does an excellent job in low light, and has a mini hot shoe that can attach lights and other accessories as well.
