Great camera, but getting the videos to a computer is AWFUL
6 July 2012
Summary: The camera works fine and takes good videos. The problem, as mentioned by other reviewers, is getting the videos off of the camera and onto a computer. You have to use the Everio software which is among the worst software I have ever seen. In addition to being realy slow, I have yet to find a way to upload an individual video to my PC (not iTunes or YouTube). The only way to upload is to upload everything that is on the camera.
BAD EXPERIENCE BECAUSE ALLREADY USED DEVICE PRODUCT!!!!!!!

Summary: THE CAMCORDER ITSELF WAS AVERY BAD EXPERIENCE,PROBABLY BECAUSE WHEN PURCHASE WAS ALLREADY USED AND WASN'T TOLD ABOUT IT HAD PASS ELECTRONIC TECHNICAL ISSUES!!!!ESPECIALLY THE VERY SHORT LIFE OF BATTERY USE DIES VERY QUICKLY AND THE FOCUS OF FACE DETECTIONS WAS VERY BAD!!!!!
Summary: I was perhaps mislead. I though that I could download the files to my pc and then watch the files from my PC to the HDTV using the HDMI connection to get a better quality picture. I was not expecting 1080 clarity but something better then 480. Now I just found out Best Buy has a 15% restocking fee on this item.
