Good quality for high lighting. bad for medium to low lighting.

Summary: It has good quality and I'm happy with it for the most part. However, its recording abilities in low-light situations is pretty poor. My digital camera (Nikon Coolpix) records better in medium to low lighting better than this.
Summary: It's a decent quality camera, nothing completely shattering. Good enough to capture some memories of our son, but not sure if it's that much above the competition for the price point. Easy user interface.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder for a video shoot so I can upload to the web. The camcorder works good in low light but looks better if you add some lighting. I shot my video using the daylight coming through the blinds in my living room and shot the second part of the video using 2 light stands from...
Summary: This is a good camcorder. I purchased it for my mother. I think the only thing I hate about it is having to set my memory card for it and then I wouldn't be able to use my SD card with any other device I own or i risk deleting it. Other than that it's a cute little thing :)
Summary: Bought to replace a Sony Digital 8 for compatibility reasons. Although it takes great video, easy to use, it would have been 5 stars if it had a light and night vision. Paid the same for the Sony several years ago and it was equipped with the light and night vision.
Summary: Soccer dad needs to video kids games. Perfect - light, small, good picture quality, easy to use. For about $350, can't complain. Buy a couple of extra memory cards and an extra battery to last all day.
Start with this and move up as your skills improve.

Summary: Excellent beginners video editing camera. Good for home video use. Definitely going to need additional batteries but if you done your research that is a known issue. Regardless definitely worth the money you pay for it.
Summary: It's a good camcorder for a beginner, but its controls are too complex to use and maneuver around. It can easily be simplified, so that controlling it would not interfere with shooting a scene at the same time.
Good value for price. Needs a bit more manual control for those who are a bit more tech savvy.

Summary: Camera works well as a whole. The WiFi link is easy once it is set up. Some issues with too much distance and a fair bit of buffering when transferring images to the iPad at 3 seconds delay. Camera function great in normal light. When things get dark, the image becomes grainy.
