Summary: I have found this camcorder takes fantastic video as long as you set the indoor / outdoor button properly. Negatives I have read about and agree with: 1) It is a little slow to focus at times 2) Still pictures don't look good 3) Records in .MOD format so editing and playback of files stored on a...
Video good, software is non-user friendlyand awkward.

Summary: Video is not particularly bright when using indoors. Software is ridiculously confusing. Will not let you download and use your own burning software, must use theirs. Light weight and fairly easy to use. Handle/button placement does not allow easy use with right hand.
Summary: Bought this camcorder a few days ago and am now returning it, unfortunately. Enjoyed the usability and operation of the product - until we came to download to our Mac. As described on the box, it is straightforward to download files to a Mac, the problem is what you can do with them after that.
Summary: After many failed previews, attempts, and returns of other brands, we are having a great experience with this camcorder. It is easy to use, and does the job others can't in low light. The night enhanced function is jumpy like all the others, but this camera takes good bright video without it.
Summary: I bought is camcorder about about two months ago. I used it at eight events day and night time shooting and the videos came out great. I also shoot photos at a wedding, I loaded the photos on my computer. The prints were like a pro.
Summary: I recently just got this camera and boy is it frusterating! Now don't get me wrong the video quality is just pure excellence compared to the last camera I used. Another pro is the night alive feature which allows you to turn on a light built in the camera if necessary. Now with the cons.
Summary: This is a great product. It does not do well in a small space you need at least 15 feet distance to shoot your video. Aside from that minor inconvenience, it is a terrific product. Scott Doerr
I ASSURE YOU THAT THIS CAMERA WORKS WITH A MAC AND IMOVIE, but the quality isn't great.

Summary: You must purchase a cable, one end a 6 pin firewire, the other end must be a 4 pin firewire. The 4 pin plugs into your included docking station, the 6 pin plugs into your mac, imovie will detect your camera automatically and it will import all of your clips. BUT!!!!
Summary: I can not say I haven't had anything other than a pleasurable experience with this camera. It takes not only great videos, but also great pictures. It picks up color so well. My digital camera has a higher resolution than this video camera, yet this video camera takes much better pictures.
Summary: I bought this camcorder last week as a replacement to our existing one that we have had for 3 years. I was very disapointed with the quality of picture at night or low light conditions. The picture quality during the day was par at best. I hooked it up to the docking station and it did not work.
