Summary: I had 20+ years of experience working in the electronics field. I worked for Circuit City and The Good Guys! audio/video stores. When I wanted a new camcorder, I wanted one powerful enough to fulfill my demanding needs, but easy enough for my inexperienced wife to use.
Great for interviews, web commercials, and short films.
