Summary: This was purchased to use for our local football league to make DVD's of each players game. It is simple to use right out of box. Download software a little tough at first but nothing an average person could not do, just requires reading instructions. Be advised this will not work with a JVC DVD external burner.
Very nice, very capable, needs a far more robust battery

Summary: This unit is superb. I have no complaints about it other than the batteries you can buy for it are really lacking the power required for them to be truly compatible with the unit. This seems to be a pervasive problem in the camcorder market regardless of the manufacturer involved. To clarify the situation, there are two batteries you can buy for this unit.
Summary: this is a excellent camera. ive bought plenty and the HD part of it is what makes it. not to mention the 20x zoom. the laser touch feature on it is actually better than pushing buttons or scrolling with a analog. its a great deal.. i bought mine for 300 usd at camp arifjan in kuwait.. better than any camera ive bought..
