Summary: I own this camera. I actually had to go through three of them before I got one that worked right. The first had a really loud motor that recorded onto the sound track. Then the replacement one jammed (while I was filming on vacation) and the third one is still going strong. This is a relatively new model, so I think they're perhaps still working the bugs out.
Summary: I got the video camera on time. However, there was a problem w/ charging the batteries. They were good about getting back to me, and the whole thing is under warranty. However, it was kind of annoying having to deal w/ the problem.
