Summary: Great camcorder, bought new 6 yrs. ago and loved it. The only downside is the vast tape collection that I will eventually transfer. A note to buyers; you must have battery charger/AC adapter for proper use.
Summary: This is a good camcorder. It records great video and audio however it has only a limited number hours of useful life. It is not a real hardy piece of equipment. More for the occasional home movie user. For its price, its probably a pretty good value.
Summary: This is a great camera. Very portable size, nice to hold in the hand. I have to use newer MiniDV tapes for the best quality, as old/used ones occasionally have pixelation after importing to my computer via firewire.
Summary: Let me begin with saying how great this camera is. It is very easy to use and has VERY good picture quality (especially for its price!) This camera is a bit basic so it's not really recommended for the people who want to make important movies and such, but great for home or personal use.
Summary: Easy to use, extremely easy transfer videos and pictures to my Macintosh. Daytime video quality is excellent, especially when playing the finished DVD's on my High Definition TV. The widescreen capability looks as good as a Hollywood movie, at least to my eyes.
Summary: I just got this camera for christmas for movie making and it's turning out to be a great camera for people like me who are new to film making. It's light so that you can bring it anywhere, but isn't so light that it fells flimsy and easily breakable.
Summary: You get what you pay for and more... For a camera that is normally under 300 bucks, one can not really complain. If you expecting it to perform like a 2000 dollar camera then don't buy it. If you are looking for something simple to use (for me it was for the birth of my son etc...) It was perfect.
