  • Pros: Great resolution, lots of features, compact, easy to use
  • Cons: It's great if all you want to do is view your movies on the LCD screen or on a TV but almost impossible to transfer to DVD because of video format

  • Pros: The video quality is amazing in HD and its a huge plus to be able to snap shots while recording video.
  • Cons: Fairly large/heavy. As far as taking the video from the camera to the computer to do editing or just viewing....very difficult. Complicated. I sold this camera. no auto focus that I could find...

  • Pros: Samll, Good picture quality
  • Cons: Was told that there would be no problem transferring files from the camera hdd to my computer. Turns out, it only works for 32 bit O/S.

Should be better at the price

A reader, Amazon

  • Summary: Not obvious from the product description but this camera does NOT come with a viewfinder. That's a bit pathetic for something costing over 600 quid. The HG21 has one but you need to fork out 200 quid more for the privilege. Also, the marketing blurb tells you you can get 22 hours onto the Hard Disk.
