Software needs much revision. Look else where for a camcorder.

Summary: The software for this is difficult to use. My computer LOST the video when it was downloaded. There was no copy left of the chip. Our wedding video is gone! We packed it away and won't use it again!
Cons: New MOS sensor is inferior to my much older generation 3CCD Panasonic SD9 camcorder in over all image quality for day light usage. Not happy with this camcorder and will return it. Image quality looks terrible on large 1080P Panasonic HD Plasma TV.
Summary: I got this for Christmas and have had it for a while. This is a great little camera and the photo quality isn't that bad! However, there is a major flaw. If you are looking for a nice compact camera at a price that isn't that bad, but don't have a Windows computer lying around, then this is useless.
