Summary: I got such a deal on this camera from Amazon. This is the previous year's model, but it is still excellent. So easy to use and records awesome videos. Highly recommend this or the next models after this.
Summary: I am not a photographer and need not to be to use a device which I like to use it for taking video or still picture of my family and friends in an event. All fine, the quality of the picture and the options this device has. But, without power how are we going to use an electronic device.
Summary: I needed to upgrade to a good 1080p camcorder. I read the reviews and decided to go with this unit. I'm glad I did. It works well. The zoom and stability control are great. It is a little smaller and lighter than I expected, but that just makes it easier to handle.
Summary: This inexpensive video camera ($249 when I bought it) has a number of options for recording. For one party I used the AVCHD setting at 17 Mbps setting and I got two hours of continuous video on a 16 GB card. I had the camera plugged in as the batteries I had would certainly not last that long.
Summary: I reviewed a lot about this product before decide buying HF-R300 few moths ago. I'm so surprised AMAZON hasn't changed the HF-R30 "dual" SDXC card slot comment. It's important that AMAZON modifies the description because HF-R30 has just 1 sdxc slot !!! just see the pictures!!!
Summary: The best low light camcorder ive ever seen! The touch screen is handy a bit complex out of the box. Its certainly worth reading the instructions a few times. A+++ thanks for the fast shipping!
Very short battery life--software has issues with AMD processors

Summary: I was disappointed with the extremely short battery life. When I tried to make DVDs of a few videos, the software would not work properly. You have to "drag and drop" the video into an area to make the DVD. The drag and drop function would not work. I called the software maker.
