Excerpt: A complete, absolute beginner, needing to record an interview with 90-year-old Veteran, IT'S THE SALESPERSON / ADVISOR / TEACHER, even more than the camcorder, that will make using it the best possible despite my total lack of experience. (Really: I very, very seldom use any kind of camera!).
Summary: Great little camera! I have been using it as a beginner camera for film. It's definitely not a professional video quality my biggest thing with it being that the picture gets grainy if it is not well lit whereas my sister's Cannon G1X is fine but the reason why this does not bother me or qualify to...
Excerpt: The camera is easy to use and meets the primary objective for purchasing the camera which is to capture home videos. The small camera size is great, making it easy to carry the camera to events or places and capture special moments outside of the home.

Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom
