Summary: Loved the seller and the camera. Small, HD, plenty of storage, and the optical zoom was on the higher end. My only concern was that I normally plug my camcorder directly into my HDTV to show my son what was good and not so good from his basketball games. This camcorder was for overseas and therefore, it wouldn't show. That was my fault that I didn't notice this when I purchased it. However, the seller was awesome.
Summary: I like this camera a lot. I do a lot of video editing. The program that comes with it is not great. I use Pinnacle Sutdio and it does better with the video. Be prepared to buy a Blueray burner and a Blueray player to get the most out of it.
