Summary: I haven't used it a lot yet, but it seems easy to use and takes very clear bright video. I shot fireworks at night and was pleased with the sound and video. Battery life is very good! I did not receive a manual , but its not very difficult to operate .
Summary: This camera is excellent for the money you will spend. Easy to use and captures great picture!I would buy this camera again or I would suggest to friends. The ability to store video to DVD is the greatest option.
Summary: I already had one of these video cameras, and saw this one for sale, hardly used, and in excellent condition. I use them at weddings for an added touch to still photography. It is a great little camera and takes very good video.
Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive yet quality camera to fill my needs and happened to run across the Hitachi DZ MV580A on a search. The camera is easy to use and pretty much self explanatory and designed so that it is almost impossible to screw it up unless you really try.
Summary: I love this it was a birthday present for my husband! We had a baby in january and at 6 1/2 months he started crawling and my husband kept saying this needs to be filmed so I got him a camera and ya we love it it is perfect!
Summary: I bought Hitachi DZ-MV350A(NTSC). It does show errors a lot for any reason and we couldn't watch on our dvd player after finalized. It wasn't easy to operate and and copy to another dvd-r. I did go crazy to understand how to operate and what to do (even after reading the manual several times).
Summary: Good camcorder overall. You must be really careful with the DVDs after recording and during finalizing. If you touch the DVD before finalizing then you can loose all contents. If the camcorder looses power while finalizing the same occurs.
