Summary: I just got this camera today and have already decided to return it. My first problem was the graininess of the photos. Even on the highest quality setting in good lighting, the photos were grainy. I was willing to overlook that since I bought this as a camcorder and not as a camera.
Summary: I purchased a similar model 7 years ago that worked fine, but humidity on a beach trip killed it. I finally purchased another at a much cheaper price in December 07 and have sent it in once to be fixed for an eject problem with the tapes which cost me $100, and now am having issues with the same...
Summary: I really like the size and weight of the camera. It is very easy to use and the picture quality is pretty good. I had to return the cam because the motor noise is unacceptable. I recorded some scenes while skiing and the whiny noise is very noticeable, even outdoors.
Doesn't come with necessary cable to do video transfer

Summary: The camera is decent. The fact that it doesn't come with the correct cable nor software to transfer video to a computer is unacceptable. What do they expect 90% of consumers are going to do with it?
