Summary: Camcorder was advertised as very good condition. However, item's output connector was damaged when received; making the camera useless. There's no point in recording if you can't do anything with it. Extremely disappointed.
Summary: the camera is fine, no complaints. i had a missing wire; they replaced the wire and were quick and kind about the whole exchange. just the kind of people you/i always hope the other people will be, but too often are not. they were great. thanks! hope this helps, patrick
Summary: Bought this in 2007 to upgrade from an old VHS-C camcorder. Very nice for an entry level camcorder. It's got the external mic jack that most low end camcorders lack. Very nice quality and true 16:9 mode. Only complaint is that the hand strap actually connects to the tape door.
Summary: I have now owned this camcorder for almost 7 years. It is still going strong! I use it mainly for school functions, parties or Christmas. Not constant use. I love the small size. The menu is easy to use as are the functions. Any camcorder will be shaky when zoomed in far, so that is expected.
Summary: This small and feature packed camera has one SMALL problem. It will NOT make itself available to the pc via the firewire cable!! Bought new firewire card, new cable, removed windows SP3 etc etc etc...NO success!!! Reviewed websites, researched forums etc...
