Summary: I admit this isn't what I'd get if I was buying new, but recently I got this at a yard sale for diiiirt cheap, and it works great. My previous camcorder was tape, so for me this DVD cam was an upgrade. It's fairly easy to use.
Summary: I've bought this camera about a year ago and I am very happy with it. The batery charges fast and lasts long, the movies are good in quality (clear, not blured, the colors come out exactly the same) and the camera is light enough.
Summary: It does not have any USB connectivity. There is no way to hook this up to your computer except through the TV type of hookups. Other than that it works great. You need a software to convert the DVD to something els to be able to edit it on your computer though (to edit movie and make copies) I like...
Summary: I just bought this camcorder and am not a good reader of manuals. I had it recording in a matter of minutes. You do have to format the mini dvds, but that is easy to find in the manual. The quality of the recording looked great on my computer screen.
