Summary: I purchased this product back in NOV 2009 I purchased it because it was the only Ultra compact High zoom camcorder to make discrete videos. It serves me well even up to this day.August 2011 The OIS optical stabilization is the best of any compact camcorder out there.
Summary: My sony camcorder broke few weeks back and I was looking for a decent HD one without breaking my wallet. For the price I paid 280@amazon, this is a great camcorder. This is smaller than the length of Iphone 3gs :) I recorder videos inside only so far and I am impressed with quality.
Summary: This is a great little camera, excellent video and photos outdoor and indoor...only used it for one day but so far, I'm satisfied with this camera. So simple to operate, didn't need to read the manual to create movies, photos and playback on HD TV.
Summary: I researched several brands which were, at least, twice more expensive than this one. In my observation, it is very easy to handle and compact enough to carry around. It is small, and many reviewers complained about the low light shooting.
Summary: originally i bought the standard definition panasonic camcorder, and the people at best buy assured me i would not be able to tell the difference between that and high def on my TV, so i tried it and they lied.
Summary: I've had this camcorder for only a week but have used it quite a bit already and am very pleased with it. The features and ease of use are better than I expected. The picture quality is superb taken in normal light using the HDMI interface on an HD TV.
Summary: I reviewed all options and went for this one - cheaper than the version with on board memory even after buying the memory card. Very easy to use, excellent results, works very well with an Apple Mac. Crumpler Lolly Dolly 110 case fits it perfectly. Overall - excellent camcorder
Summary: This was my first HD cam and i am not disapointed. It records in Full HD and very easy to use. With its touch screen controls it make sit very easy to setup. The small battery that comes with this lasts a nice 3-4 hours and a 16gb SG card (not included) can record about 1-2 hours.
Summary: Has produced really good picture quality outdoors and in, the sound from a band in a park was great. Only drawback so far is that it is suffers from wind noise in more than a light breeze. Stills taken whilst recording are fine, if I want a "master shot" I've got a DSLR for that.
