Summary: I have owned the zr10 for 3 years. Initially, I was thrilled to death over it's small form factor, quality of picture (in good light) and fantastic cd quality sound. Now, it just eats tapes, so I can no longer enjoy it's small form factor, quality of picture (in good light) and fantastic cd quality...
Summary: I bought this camcorder last year. It was good for taking video, but I don't like the way it keeps still images. The way it works is keeping the same screen for 5 sec, and is recorded on the tape. To transfer to a computer, you need another device, which only save into floopy disk.
Summary: Watch out this Mini-DV Camcorder's lens! The Maximum CCD resolution only 460,000 pixels. It's only slightly higher than Digital8 camcorder's resolution. Most Mini-DV has CCD 680,000 pixels. Like the Panasonic PV-DV51, for similar price, got 680,000 pixels better lens but bigger body.
Summary: I was very pleased with this camera when I first got it. I have a couple of issues that would have made me go with another camera had I known from the start... 1. Low light quality is very bad! I don't mean candle light. I'm talking about indoor night shots with all of the lights on.
