Summary: All those that wrote great reviews about the camera will be back extolling how their camcorder now eats tapes. I've had my ZR-10 since Dec 2000 and now just in the last couple of weeks of Nov 2003 it is eating tapes and will not accept a brand new tape.
Summary: I got this camera almost 2 years ago. I was very pleased with its simplicity and quality, which suited my weekend-homemovie-making needs. I have used it in Florida humidity and Nevada dusty desert with no problems.
I can't believe they call this a digital camcorder

Summary: The size is perfect. It's easy to use, once you figure it out. Also the special effects are cool. But when it comes to video quality--what a disappointment and the still pictures are terrible as well. Who wants a camcorder that looks good but doesn't perform well?
Summary: I bought mine to replace a 5 year old Sony Hi-8. I was very impressed with the small size, recording quality, and the amount of bells and whistles that came with it. I was a little displeased with the zoom range of the lens. It dose not wide enough and shooting in tight spaces is difficult.
