Summary: I bought this to replace my Sony Handycam which wasn't HD. So first of all the picture quality is very good in 1080p HD, the colours are spot on and the sound is ok even in windy conditions. Another reviewer said that it's not easy to hold and operate and I would agree with that, but you soon find a way to do it. My eyesight isn't the best and my hands are fairly pudgy but I can manage to see the onscreen icons and press them when needed.
Summary: I bought this camera last year, so held off writing a review until I'd given it a decent amount of use. The picture quality is very good and looks nice and sharp on a 42" television. That goes for indoors as well. I don't see how some other folk can say that the picture quality is bad, unless they've not set the camera to film in full HD on a fine setting.
Summary: Great little hand held device. Very simple to use. Video quality excellent. The only drawback is there is no internal memory. Had to purchase two expensive SD cards which made the price less competitive. In hindsight, I would have gone for the next model up with the built-in memory.
