Same camera I already had, and all the accessories.
1 May 2013
Summary: This is just like my camera, except I used it so much it doesn't record well any more. I was glad to find the same camera so I can transfer videos now that our youngest is graduating from high school. Thanks for the camera I had a lot of accessories for this camera already from my old one and have the means to transfer videos. That should be my next project!
Summary: so i have had my camcorder for a few years now, i haven't used it a whole lot but at least once a year during the summers. not until recently when i went on a cross country road trip with it that i noticed a lot of back ground noise being picked up instead of the sounds i was actually trying to record.
Pros: Good auto focus, turns off when LCD screen is closed (if viewfinder isn't extended), great zoom, good video quality. Has easy to understand controls, Manual or Auto (M or A) modes which are easy to change between, it's robust and for a good price!
Cons: Image stabilisation not very effective, hand held shots are shaky, especially once zoom is used. Doesn't perform too well in lower light levels (shots are grainy and blueish).
