Thankfully I didn't need the cam for what it was ...

Summary: Thankfully I didn't need the cam for what it was made for, I was using it to record pictures directly to my computer. But before I set it up on my computer I try to use the cam to record a video the cam stopped working about 1 day after using it. I tried to reset it a few times but gave up.
Summary: When I received this camcorder, I was initially shocked because I ordered it and received only two days later. This has to be the fastest item I have ever received. The quality of the camcorder was pristine and I received all items in the listing plus a few more that weren't.
Summary: My husband bought this camcorder for me for our anniversary in 2005. I have not had one problem with it since. I even took it to Iraq (a very sandy and windy place) and did my own little documentary!! The menu is easy to understand and follow.
Summary: I really like this camera a lot. It is easy to use. DVD-RAM idea is great, but not super compatible.
My goal was to take videos with the camera, then burn the DVD-RAM disc's images onto DVD-R type disks and then be on my way.

Summary: We really like this camera. We have not be able to find a way to "edit" our recordings on the computer and what we have been able to find out is...that will not be able to with this model...that is the only downside to this camera and I wish I knew that ahead of time.
Summary: I really like the camcorder itself. It has good picture quality and is easy to use. However, the reconditioned camera had no CD included with it to make editing or viewing the film on the computer possible. The CD is included with the camera if the camera is purchased new.
Summary: See other comments about the challenges of viewing this on your computer. They make it sound like you're just recording a DVD and you'll be able to pop it in anywhere. WRONG. And this model doesn't connect directly to a computer directly.
Summary: Without purchasing another piece of hardware ,you cannot record to dvd via PC with this little number.All the other features are great but it's like traveling 500 ft and stopping short 1 foot from the destination .WTF!!!! Amazon advertises the Monster cable as an "accessory". Really?
