Summary: I just got this solid beauty. The only thing I can stress about is not able to see the recording formats (ex. 24p, 60p etc.) So far, i can see this piece being a great unit for b-rolls, documentaries.
Good Low Cost High Value Set to Auto function, small is good for small hand
7 December 2011
Summary: Good video with very little motion blur when panning, i dont care about sound so its "OK" but it does have wind cut. It is very small, maybe a little too small so its finicky in my hand to try and find a confortable grip, my previous was a sony hd camcorder and i am tall, so this may not have been a good fit anyway.
Summary: I bought this camera with the dvd burner but I never got the dvd burner. Even though I called Amazon and they told me that they send it. But the camera itself is amazing. I'm a sound and video technician at a curch and this is a really good camera to record the sermons. I recomend to buy another SD card.
Summary: I've had this product for more than a year now and so far I love how crisp the pictures are with natural lights around. Outdoor is superb indoor is good. If there's a natural light from a window it'll have a great result, but the noise level is noticeable with low lightings. I love the settings that they have with intellipix and intelligent contrast and backlight compensation and a few others, it certainly helps with the low lighting situation.
Summary: I have owned the camera for 2 weeks now and am returning it. I currently own 3 other video cameras, but this is my forst HD camera. Everything about the camera is wonderful except for one MAJOR flaw, there is a high pitched whine when I play back the vodeo through the camera. It is quite noticeable to say the least and simply unacceptable for a camera in this range. There is no tape transport, no hard drive...
Summary: Very light camcorder. It was a concern for me about editing avchd: The included software (HD writer) is not very powerful, but it's ok to save your video in HD format. I use video studio pro x2 to edit in AVCHD without any problem with my laptop(window vista, 3GB memory) The quality of the picture is not very good in low light situation.
