Summary: You cannot get a better camcorder for the price! Especially if you plan to shoot primarily outdoors. With a couple of 32 GB SD cards you could shoot all day long.The problem is that the battery compartment is built facing down next to the camera mount, so you only have a one hour uninterrupted...
Summary: I've had this camera for about 6 months now, and I'm experiencing an issue with it that seems to only get worse the longer I have the camera. I take short videos with the camera firmly screwed onto a large tripod. So I would expect the video image to be very stable.
Summary: The camera is actually a very nice little unit that is easy to operate and produces very good quality video. However, I am only giving it 3 stars because the camera produces files in MTS format that must be converted to other video standards in order to be useful to me.
Summary: Bought this camcorder about two weeks ago, also bough 2 64GB SDXC memory cards to use with this camcorder. Compare with my old camera still uses tapes, this camcorder is light years ahead. It offers everything we need plus a lot more. There are a few function issues with this product.
Summary: A nice little affordable digital flash memory video camera from a trusted name. I'm glad I purchased it on Amazon. I would highly suggest buying additional batteries and a battery charger. I find I have to swap out batteries if I record for a long time.
Summary: For all the appeal of this small and proficient camera, the battery life is quite short, and the bottom-mounted battery doesn't allow for a larger battery to be used. And extra batteries are quite expensive! ($70 with no free shipping).
