Summary: This camera makes transfering large video files and pictures a snap. With the addition of a 32gb SDHC card, which is the largest this model can handle, it's a great fit. Transfer rate at 15mb's a second and your on your way. One thing that I really liked about the camera quick start feature was that as soon as you press the camera picture function it takes the first photo of where you were. This is really handy if you are driving or moving very quickly.
Summary: For the price I suppose it's a quality HD video camera you can get. Image quality is solid and the built in 60 gig storage is awesome. If you have a mac, it will easily sync with any version of iMovie after iMovie '08. I had iMovie HD on my 3 year old mac and was disappointed when I found out I had to purchase a new version of iLife to unload the video files. Another horrible design is in how you have to hook it up to the computer or TV.
Summary: What I like the product at this price range it is the only HD camcorder with EVF. This is vital in taking fast action sport activity at full zoom. The only complain I have is the bundled software is so basic for tranfering and editing. This however could be complemented with 3rd part software.
Summary: What ever the inns and outs of the quality of the video which is actually not too bad for the price, the problem that most people are going to come accross is how to create usable functioning HD discs that play bakc on their dvd players. I have run the gamut of copying every kind of format ruining a goodly supply of dvds in the process and none of them work.
Summary: This camcorder is packed with features and is very easy to use. Being full HD the image quality is absolutely amazing. I was considering buying an SD camcorder and was so glad I decided to spring the extra cash for HD. Optical zoom is fantastic & it fits in the hand easily. Favorite feature would have to be its' easy compatibility with my Panasonic BD-60 Blu-Ray player. You won't be dissapointed with this one!!!
Summary: I go from shooting video on the beach with my boy's to YouTube 1280x720 6000 b/s effortless using Pinnacle 12 Studio. With one click I either make MP4 or write to DVD or Blue ray. Now all that for 550US for the cam and 100US for Pinnacle. I for one am verry happy [...
