Summary: I find that this camcorder was great when I was taping sporting events such as my daughters soccer game or outside family reunions. This camera has a great LCD moniter, which is good for future editing purposes, and offers fairly good zoom options. For it's price I think it is a good deal.
Summary: I got this camcorder for my fiance and I for Christmas and so far we have like it a lot. We are still learning how to use all the features but it is pretty easy to figure out the basics (even without reading the manual).
