Summary: We have had this camera for a few years now, and its no longer being made. It works fine and takes an excellent picture, except in poor light, but they all are that way to some extent. There are two items to be aware of.
Summary: This camera gets every detail every blade of grass and every little rock. It looks incredible on an HDTV looks like you are really there. The only problems I can see is the panning,it seems to not like fast panning too much and also there is a lot of noise in low light conditions but this is not a...
Summary: The camcorder itself is amazing in quality and great for editing, if you do that kind of a thing. Now all I need is a High Definition TV. Having taken still pictures on the camcorder too, the quality is really really good.
Summary: Picture and sound R exelent in good weather conditions but not so great if it gets darker (getting a bit grainy in low light). Camcorder doesnt like wind at all... it has no protection from wind at all.
Summary: Very simple to get straight out of the box and start using. However, if you do not have a HD ready TV to show the resultant recordings through it is worthwhile reading the instructions and taking it out of HD record mode.
