Summary: The camera was very easy to use and worked immediately with iMovie '08. I was worried I'd have to upgrade my editing software, but I shot some video in AVCHD format, opened the program, plugged in the camera and all of my clips appeared immediately. Going from Mini DV to HD is a no-brainer. I rendered the video at 5000kps, 1280 and uploaded it to Vimeo - it looked Shocking!
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls, Versatile
Summary: I liked this camera when i was looking at it on my HD Panel, the colours seemed very accurate and low light performance was impressive! The accessory shoe on top is great because it's a standard show with a 3.5mm jack so i can easily plug in my Rode Microphone
