Summary: The Everio GZ-MS130 as a video camera is a good camera, a photo camera it is not. Every photo comes out non-focused with motion blur lines. I am not to sad as it was purchased as a video camera and not a photo camera, but it would be nice to not have to lug both devices around. Low light tends to bring some graininess, but it is NOT a 0 lux camera so what do you expect.
Summary: My main reason for purchasing this camera was to capture good quality video while using a green screen. I wanted a camera that would supply a strong focus while giving me good color balances. So far I have not been disappointed. I had read there were issues in getting the .MOD format converted for editing in the computer this also has been a moot point as plenty of freeware is out there to handle the conversion smoothly and cleanly.
Summary: I have had mine for a month or so. I like it for the most part. I wish it had an "optical" view finder, but few Camcorders do these days. I am also very shaky because of arthritis, so its taking me a while to "learn" how to handle this camera. This is not against the camera, just pointing out that is is different than I am used to. All in all, an excellent camera.
