Summary: I purchased the camera without looking closely at what wasn't included, I thought all camera bodies would come with a view finder but this one did not, so it wasn't such a good find, I could have purchased an entire camera with extras for what I paid for this one after buying the view finder.
Summary: Because of the condition of the camera I never got the opportunity to really try it out so I don't know how well I would have liked it but providing it did work well I think it would have made a good 3rd camera. I currently have 2 canon cameras and decided to get a 3rd as filming is my business, I would often look at cameras to see what was available and at what price.
Summary: The camera records a good picture, but the microphone was broken on the camera. When recording sound it chop very bad even when the sound levels are turned to low! I shot my hold project with this camarea to only get choppy sound from a mircophone that dosent work the correct way! I wish I can get my money back and bid on other camera but I guess I got to lose a thousand bucks gone down the drain! It sucks! I am very unhappy!
