Summary: Nice little lightweight camera. Must buy extended battery. Good quality pictures. However, if you break it, be prepared for the most rude and expensive scam in town. Only one place to service in Texas, and they'll rip you off! Minimum $160.95 charge!
Summary: Not a bad camera for the price I want looking for fancy just practical for some home video of the kids and wife the only thing that irked me was the fact that the battery needs be replaced as the stock one only lasts about 30mins definitely lose a star for that but it works good the auto steady is great practically getting rid of shaky cam
Summary: Bought this to shoot videos on a vacation to Scotland and it was perfect for this - very small and light, easy to use, and the videos looked great for the price range, even in low light/overcast sky situations. A couple issues brought it down to 4 stars: as said by others, definitely buy the larger battery to have on hand.
Summary: Ive used several Everio for almost 2 years to shoot surf videos. I preferred the previous model. Pros: - 40x Optical Zoom - Manual focus option (just used it once, the way it is setup doesn't seem practical) - Handy Size - Good video quality when the light is nice. Cons: - Zoom switch wears out after around 6 months of constant daily use: it gets loose and gets stuck , its annoying but still works.
Summary: This lightweight, easy-to-use video camera has a crisp, clear image on play-back, and it picks up sound very well. I like that it comes on automatically when you open the viewing screen, so that there is no fumbling for the right setting on a dial. If I had one request, it would be that the battery life was a little longer, but it is still quite good.
Summary: I got this video Camera this past July 2013 and put it to work right away. I has been a good camera. The only limitation I have found is the short battery life. When I need to video more than 1/2 hour or so I need to plug it in. Also the camera struggles to focus well from a distance if the lighting is not good. Besides that it has been a good camera. The software also has been good and I have imported videos to my laptop with windows 8 very easily.
Summary: I love the HD quality of this camera. The camera doesn't have a lot of features, but the Optical zoom is great and it supports a 64 G memory card. The fast lens is great; just wish it supported filters. The LCD screen is difficult to use outdoors in direct sunlight, and ergonomics of the start/stop button aren't the best. It is fine when used with a tripod, and hand held is OK at low zooms. I like the HDMI output. I'd give this camera a 4 out of 5 rating.
