Summary: I am not an expert . This is my first experience with a camcorder. I have found this camcorder to be very user friendly, well worth every penny. An expert might find some fault but I am very pleased with the Hitachi DZ MV750MA. The instructions are very clear , and make using the camera a joy . This purchase has been the most bang for the buck I've ever had.
Summary: This is the first time I have used this type of camcorder..I was pleased with the ease of operation and lightness of the camera, since I am a still photographer and used to a heavier unit. I was hopeful that the mini dvd would be more flexible for playback...but I am still learning.. The instructions are a little difficult for an old lady like me, but once I got into them, I was ok. I love the image stabilizer. Thanks for a good job.
