Summary: Great Video quality. Especially outside. Inside you have to have the right lighting but that is expected. Takes pretty good photos as well. I was debating between this and the HFS10 but got this one instead because of the improved stabilization. Make sure you buy a battery though.
Pros: Excellent Video (Especially Outside), Great Photos, Too MANY options on camcorder to list, 64 GB is more than enough memory, Compact but with enough weight to balance itself, optical stabilization is GREAT,
Cons: Provided battery is somewhat disappointing but that is expected because its a smaller battery
Summary: So i can record 6 hours of hd with the built in 64 gigs. But wait..........the battery only last 93 minutes. That sucks and I would have bought the cheaper version. 93 minutes means I cant record 6 hours unless I buy more batteries which is stupid.
Perfect for everyday use as well as low budget filmmakers
