Summary: This is my first High Def camcorder and I was excited about using it for spontaneous shoots outside, often in woods or other natural settings, where I don't have a lot of time to fool with settings, so rely heavily on auto-focus. My experience with this camcorder is that the auto-focus is terrible.
films dark, not Mac friendly, not worth the high price

Summary: Now that I've had this camcorder a while I thought I would update my review. I purchased this camcorder for the main purpose of filming my children and burning the home video to DVD to share with grandparents. I use a Mac Pro computer and run Windows 7 via Parallels.
