Summary: This camera is a decent camera. What makes it great for me is it's ability to add-on. It has a powered microphone jack (3.5mm), an external av jack (3.5mm) which I use for headphones. It has a usb port, hdmi, and ilink. What I love even more is the way the camera handles colors and lighting. In low light, it needs a-tweekin'. Keep the scene lit properly, give'r a small adjustment, and you're good to go. The grain is acceptable and even adds a classic style to it.
Summary: This is my 3rd 'family' camcorder and the best one thus far. When my son started playing high school football it only took me one season to realize that the current camcorder wasn't getting the job done. Not only that but the conversion from tapes to DVD was SO painful. I did a lot of research on what I was going to need to shoot action movement at night. For the money that I was willing to spend this was the camera that came out on top.
Summary: love everything about it I bought the New camera three days ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this camera. It has a 10-pixel camera, video camera, The cameras's size is perfect,I got two of them.
Summary: After Using this camera The followeing review is: The camera is very nice looking and has a lot of features most cameras have such as an easy mode for those who have not used a camera before to advanced modes for the pro or novices. The picture quality is out of this world with such sharpness and detail. if you are looking to do some kind of indie film to say a documentary this is the camera for you at a low afordable cost.
Summary: This camera is great for what ever you want to do... The quality exceeded my expectations... Me and my girl bought 1 together and after a year i just had to get my own 1. Bought another 1. The hard drive makes it easy to view and delete clips you dont want. The only problem i can say is the the vids are in tod files and you might have to convert them if you want to edit. But i dont have no problem doing it, specially since i just got a mac with a 1tb external hard drive.
Summary: Like - The built in hard drive Love - easy to use, GREAT VIDEO AND STILL PICTURES. Dislike - None. I really didn't know what to expect when ordering this camcord from Japan. After I receieved the camera and software (really good software came with camcord) I was pleased. I would purchase a Japan product again with this type of savings. paid only $512. saved hundreds.
Summary: This camera is absolute quality. I love the large lens, the great features, the comfortable handling, and the sharpenss of the footage. 60gb allows for up to 5 hours of HD footage, which is incredible. The stock battery may only last about 1-2 hours of use, but I'm surprised how long the first charge actually lasted. Quality, even at 10x zoom is great, and there is some noise in low-light conditions, but filming without proper lighting is asking a little much.
