Summary: Great little camcorder that performs well in most conditions. Battery life is Ok but you will need more than 1 for an all day event. The biggest disappointment is that it will not recognize a class 10 sdhc card as shipped.
Summary: I bought this camcorder for general purposes and so far, it has blown me away with its picture quality. The camera does exceptionally well in daylight conditions; however, in low light conditions, the camera performs okay.
Summary: After 2 months of research this was what I bought. I was looking for a camera to video wildlife and sports mostly. I didnt want to drop a grand and also wanted HD. NO tapes or disks, had to be an SD Card. Technology changes to fast I will probably buy again in 4 years.
Summary: Video imports fine into iMovie 09. I copy the files from SDHC Card to hard disk and them import from there. Requires lots of disk space when imported but 1TB hard drives cost ~$75 now and 1.5TB drives will be under $100 by the end of the year.
Summary: I love this camera, already have the HF20 version which has a 32gb internal flash drive. I wanted another one and the HF200 is the same camera without the internal flash memory. The camera shoots excellent HD video, great zoom and very small and lightweight.
Summary: This is a great little camera with just a couple flaws. The main one being that although you have manual control over shuuter and apeture, you do not have control over both at the same time. This one little thing makes it a consumer style camera insted of a prosumer camera.
Summary: This is a great little camcorder for the price. Very good zoom lenses (15x) and image stabilization technology. The camera doesn't come with internal memory but SDHCs are cheap enough so you can get a few. I'd recommend a pair of 16Gigs.
Summary: is a good product. I bought this product about a month ago and took lot of time working on this camcorder. I like the image quality and the video that it takes. Good size, and is portable. The only drawback I see it the pixela software it comes with to download this image.
